Offensively the numbers are equally astounding. Through the first 9 weeks of the NFL season in 2012 Dallas’ offense had 19 turnovers. This season they have only 6 turnovers. For those who are so hard on quarterback Tony Romo, it makes you wonder what the difference is. Is it the play calling change? Is Callahan really doing positive things or is it the fact that the offensive line has been better this year giving Romo more time to make better judgment calls? Personally I cannot answer that however, I’d be inclined to say it’s a better offensive line than last season and with the wide receiver weapons Dallas has I would also point out that Romo has more than one threat on the field at a time. Another statistic that jumped out was touchdowns. Last season, Dallas had only 10 touchdowns and this season they have 20. It’s just plain simple common sense, you score more points, you have a greater chance of winning ball games. Finally, field goals, last year, Dallas relied on the foot of kicker Dan Bailey for 15 field goals through the first 9 weeks. This season, they have relied on him for 16 field goals. Again the Dallas offense is at least moving the ball and scoring more points this year, so far, than last year.
Based upon the facts and stats presented you can formulate your own opinions but Dallas is doing a better job this year so far.
