What a game! It should have not been as close as it was, but a win is a win. We witnessed some firsts and a record breaking day.
This week’s offensive game ball goes to Miles Austin.
This speedy wide receiver had a record breaking day with 250 yards on 10 catches with 2 game saving touchdowns.
His first score almost won the game for the Cowboys, but the one in overtime counted for the “W”.
Austin just might have earned his starting spot. Miles is the game breaking threat the Cowboys need.
He also could have had a few more touchdowns on the day. But he couldn’t secure a couple of throws from Tony.
Great job Miles Austin.
This week’s defensive/special teams game ball goes to Keith Brooking.
Brooking is the solid linebacker that was needed to compliment the defense.
Brooking finished the game with 8 solo tackles and helped on 3 more. He also recorded a sack on Matt Cassel. He came flying from up the middle to take him down.
With all the pressure the Cowboys gave the Chiefs on Sunday, Keith also had 4 QB hits.
His leadership speaks for itself. You can find the veteran linebacker running up and down the sidelines when he’s not on the field. He gets this team pumped up! It feels like Brooking has been a Cowboy all of his life.
Keep up the great work Keith Brooking!
Congratulations to Austin and Brooking for their great contribution to the overtime win.
