Flashback, Cowboys vs Titans/Oilers

The 1982 NFL season was unlike any other season before. After the second week of the season all games stopped due to a strike. The strike lasted two months and would end up wiping seven games off the

Flashback, Cowboys vs Cowboys

Normally I would write a Flashback post for the upcoming game, but the series between the Cowboys and Texans really has no history at all. They have met only twice in the regular season and have split

Flashback, Cowboys vs Bears – 1981

It was Thanksgiving Day in 1981 and the only thing the Cowboys seemed to be thankful for was getting past the 3-9 Chicago Bears with a victory. The win put the Cowboys in first place in the

The 1985 season started on Monday Night Football for the Cowboys for the third time in the last four years. It was the second time in three years that the Cowboys would be opening against division rival

Flashback: Dallas vs New Orleans – 1984

The 1984 season will not go down in Cowboys history as one they want to remember. Actually it’s one of those seasons that should be forgotten. The Cowboys finished 9-7 and missed the playoffs. It was also

Flashback: Dallas vs Giants – 1995

As we get closer to the second meeting in 2009 with the Giants, it actually took some time to decide on a game to Flashback to. Not sure why it took so long, but for some reason
