Jerry Jones sees a healthy and productive Tony Romo taking the Cowboys into December in playoff contention — just the same as the past two years.
The Cowboys entered the final game of the past two seasons with a chance to win the NFC East, only to fall to the team that took the crown. This season, the Cowboys are headed for a similar confrontation with the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Dallas Cowboys running game came to life in their Thanksgiving Day win over the Oakland Raiders. Here is a look at the Cowboys team grades for the big win.
DeMarco Murray ran for three touchdowns, backup Lance Dunbar had a career-high 82 yards rushing and the Dallas Cowboys overcame Oakland’s fumble return for a score on the opening kickoff to beat the Raiders 31-24 Thursday.
The Cowboys have to move on from a last-play win over the New York Giants to stay in position to end a three-year playoff drought. The Raiders must forget a last-minute loss to Tennessee that damaged hopes for their first postseason trip since 2002.
It was late into the icy night when the often-stoic Jason Witten strutted down the aisle of the Dallas Cowboys’ chartered plane to serve as the opening act for a victorious ride home.
The Dallas Cowboys remain undefeated in the NFC East after beating the New York Giants for the second time this season. Here is a look at the Cowboys’ team grades from the big game.
Tony Romo threw two touchdowns and led a drive that set up Dan Bailey’ 35-yard field goal on the final play as the Cowboys defeated the Giants 24-21 Sunday.
The difference this year is the game is before Thanksgiving. It has the potential to get the Cowboys (5-5) back into a tie for first place with idle Philadelphia, and to end the Giants’ bid to get back into contention after losing their first six games.
I think it’s very possible that the consistent action of defending Romo against unrealistic criticism for close to a decade has conditioned his supporters to now not be able to evaluate the possibility that this is a time for realistic criticism.
The Dallas Cowboys beat the New York Giants to open the season and sent the Giants on a six-game losing streak. Now reeling off four wins in a row, the Giants are looking to beat Dallas and get back in the thick of it in the NFC East.
Jason Garrett will make it through the bye week after a 49-17 loss to New Orleans, preaching the importance of not overreacting to by far his worst game in two-plus years since he was the midseason replacement for Wade Phillips.
