Oh and that cornerback Richard Sherman guy? Well, Cowboys’ monster wideout Dez Bryant averaged 15.9 yards on 4 receptions including two penalties levied against him. I guess the little voice in his stomach didn’t tell him beforehand that he’s overrated. Dez ate his Chunky Soup.
Running back DeMarco Murray would finish with his sixth straight game of 100+ yards tying the great HOF running back Jim Brown in the process. RB Joseph Randle would contribute another 52 while averaging 10.4 yards per carry against, again, the league’s leading rushing defense. Yahtzee.
Huge win for the Cowboys. – Nick Eatman
Despite the refs refusing to call roughing the passer against the Seahawks on three occasions, three giveaways by the Cowboys, and several penalties against Dallas, we left with a win. That should really tell you how scary good this 2014 Cowboys team is. With mistake-free football, there’s no team in this league that can stop this freight train.
With the nail hanging over the coffin, Tony Romo showed who’s the teacher and absolute master of elusiveness at the quarterback position. While Wilson tried like the Little Engine that Could Not all afternoon, Romo would convert on a 3rd and 20 by spinning, separating, and bombing wide receiver Terrance Williams who made a catch so pretty it doesn’t need to wear makeup.
So what say you, America? Because the narrative has officially changed from sub-500 predictions and ratings-fodder to the Dallas Cowboys being Super Bowl contenders. The best record in the league, the league’s leading rushing offense, a dynamic passing offense, and a defense that doesn’t care about names. It cares about knocking your head off.
