8. Ryan Switzer anyone?
After drafting Switzer in last year’s NFL Draft, the hype around his game is high. Sure, it’s early, and eventually No. 10 will get on the field more.
Teams are already having their trouble with Beasley. Why not mix it up by having another Beasley on the floor, especially when the offense is stale?
9. The meat of the story is in the third downs
The Cowboys were terrible on third downs. The team went 3 for 14 on the big downs.
The Broncos played better on third downs. Denver went 9 for 15, converting 60 percent of their third downs.
The Cowboys could only convert two of their five fourth down moments.
10. The Broncos ran like the Cowboys
Forget Siemian’s four touchdown throws. The Broncos took the Cowboys running playbook.
Denver had 39 total rushing plays to the Cowboys 14. Overall, the Broncos ran for 178 yards while the Cowboys could only come up with 40.
Extra point: The bright side of things
Ok, I’m reaching for something positive here, but how about Dan Bailey‘s 56 yard field goal?
Sure, his three pointer didn’t mean much in the end, but this guy makes it look too easy. Should the Cowboys need a 57 or 58-yard kick, it’ll be fun to watch him nail it, with some clearance too.
