Sometimes its hard to find anything positive from such a heartbreaking loss, however several players did play well and for that they deserve to be recognized.
This week’s offensive game ball goes to Sam Hurd.
Sam Hurd, who has been nearly invisible offensively this year, zig-zagged his way down the field on 4th and 3 to set up a chance for the Cowboys to win last Sunday.
Hurd finished the game with 62 yards on 3 catches. He made up most of those yards his 3rd catch, a 53-yard gain.
Sam was also thrown to twice in the final seconds but could not secure the ball. He was covered by the Pro Bowler Champ Bailey.
We are likely to see more of Sam Hurd with Roy Williams injured this week.
This week’s defensive/special teams game ball goes to Bradie James.
Bradie James was a beast out there. He helped give the Cowboys a chance in the game.
With the offense sputtering, the defense was needed to step up and Bradie led the way. With the exception of the Brandon Marshall touchdown (in which they couldn’t tackle), the defense gave Denver quarterback Kyle Orton all kinds of pressure.
James finished the game with 6 tackles with 2 assists. He also had 1 sack and a fumble recovery.
Congratulations to Sam and Bradie for their outstanding play.
That was a game the Dallas Cowboys should of won. Kansas City is next, hopefully the Cowboys will give us an overwhelming win and that should make it more satisfying to give out game balls next week.
