Crow. Eat it. (Blue and) silverware is available upon request. This year’s Dallas Cowboys have done it again. Traveling to play the Ivan Drago-esque Seattle Seahawks in the apparent Terrordome known as Century Link Field, the Cowboys did exactly the opposite of what the majority of the Planet Earth thought they’d do; they won.

For those that still haven’t picked their jaw up off of the floor, allow me to not help you with that. Believe what you’re seeing because it’s real, it’s raw, it’s uncut. The 2014 Cowboys sent the warning flare with the amazing comeback against the St. Louis Rams. It’s the Rams, though. So let’s move on.

They took that momentum and used it like the hammer of Odin’s son to pound the beloved New Orleans Saints into dust. Prior to that game, the Saints’ offense was apparently unstoppable against the Cowboys “poor little defense”. After the mauling, the narrative suddenly became “it’s only the Saints”. Well then, let’s move on.

Coming to town thereafter were the Houston Texans led by the supposedly inhuman defensive end JJ Watt. Time and time again, he was negated by our terrific offensive line that we so lovingly call “The New Great Wall of Dallas”. When he was able to break free, Cowboys’ quarterback Tony Romo put moves on him that should be rated ‘R’ for violence. That narrative became “Watt was obviously hurt”.

I’m sensing a pattern here, but, let’s move on. On to Week Six versus the “almighty” Seahawks who are unbeatable at home. The NFL’s leading rushing defense versus the league’s #1 rushing offense. Something had to give and that’s exactly what happened, something gave. Only it wasn’t what everyone thought it’d be.
