After the Denver Broncos smashed the Dallas Cowboys 42-17, America’s Team is left in shock. Here are 10 things we all learned following the terrible loss.
Well, that wasn’t the Dallas Cowboys group I was expecting at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.
Let’s just be honest here: The 42-17 beat down was a hard spectacle to witness. After dubbing this game as the NFL match of the week, and with all eyes tuned in, you’d expect the Boys to put up a fight.
In fact, I had the game in the neighborhood of 27-17, in favor of the Cowboys. Unfortunately, as we all witnessed, Dallas was tossed around, embarrassed, and overall, outplayed in all phases of the game.
Was this just a one-off, or are there dangers ahead for the Dallas Cowboys? There’s a lot to discuss. So, let’s get right into 10 things about the Cowboys following the big loss.
1. Better to lose now than later
Let’s not sugarcoat this. The Cowboys played terrible. When the lights were on, they crumbled and worst of all, embarrassed themselves with their lack of effort.
If anything, the weather delay saved them from bleeding out, giving the squad a break to regroup. But in the end, it all didn’t matter.
They got a good fight coming up with the Cardinals on Monday night action. Hopefully, the team can patch some of the holes with an extra day of work.
