This Dallas Cowboy team has all the talent in the world, but it always seems like they can never make the plays needed to win.
Now let’s get something straight. Tony Romo did not lose the game for the Cowboys last Sunday against the Denver Broncos even though he threw an interception late in the fourth quarter that led to the game-winning field goal by Matt Prater. Dallas wouldn’t even been in the game without Romo. When a quarterback throws for over 500 yards and leads an offense to 48 points that team usually wins the game.
However, I think we all realize Peyton Manning and the Broncos are not a normal team. Their Madden-like offense was pretty much unstoppable. They scored on every drive except for 2. They didn’t have to punt at any time during the game. That’s just ridiculous.
No matter how good an offense is though, the defense is still expected to get stops. The Cowboy defense didn’t execute this. They did force 2 turnovers, including Manning’s first interception of the year, but otherwise they were horrible. No team can give up 51 points and expect to win. Now the Denver defense obviously wasn’t much better because they gave up 48 points. Nevertheless, they made a play when they needed it the most.
That’s what separates the Cowboys from an elite team like the Broncos. They have shown they can compete with any team in the league, but they either can’t make a crucial play, or they make a crucial mistake that causes them to lose.

Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett, still feeling the aftereffects of Sunday's epic high-scoring showdown that saw their hopes dashed away in the final few minutes, reflected on QB Tony Romo's interception that all but sealed the victory for Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos 51-48. Romo has since acknowledged that he just didn't put the ball in the right place...
Some say Rono will never win a Super Bowl for Dallas,I have a different take on the game—not on Romo, though; I AGREE!! I don’t trust him any more than I do Joe Flacco or Matt Schaub and for the same reason: with the one notable exception of Flacco’s Super Bowl win, all of three of them will break your heart nearly every time… This game was more evidence that the NFL is fast...
The Dallas Cowboys announced they have released ten-year veteran S Will Allen.
Allen, 31, signed a one-year deal $905,000 with the Cowboys back in March. Dallas gave him the start in their first two games of the season before turning to J.J. Wilcox.
The fact that Dallas allowed 512 total yards of offense to the Denver Broncos in Week 5, most likely propelled this adjustment to...
Dallas wideout Terrance Williams put up 151 yards and a touchdown on four catches Sunday against the Broncos.Fantasy Spin:He combined with Dez Bryant for 292 yards and three touchdowns. The 24-year-old rookie out of Baylor has produced 222 yards on 11 catches over the last two games with Miles Austin dealing with a hamstring injury. If Austin is out in Week 6 versus the Redskins...
Dallas Cowboys fans might say Tony Romo stinks, but the man actually smells great - if you want the other guy to score.
It might only be the first quarter, but dang Romo is in the zone against the Broncos defense.

Matt Millen has four Super Bowl rings from a 12-year playing career that included stops in Oakland San Francisco and Washington. But no one remembers that because of what he perpetrated against the Lionsfor eight years as the team's president. He was known for many things during his tenure in Detroit and none of them good.
- From 2001-2003 the Lions were 0-24...
I don’t know how you can watch yesterday’s game and blame Tony Romo for that loss. It’s easy to get caught up in the narrative that Romo isn’t clutch, but to blame is for that loss is idiotic and lazy.
Yet to nobody’s surprise the Romo bashers were out in full force. See here and here.
It’s stupid and moronic, yet it continues. There are plenty of fanbases (Houston...
At the risk of burning you out on statistics from Sunday afternoon that should blow your mind, allow me this one more.
The Cowboys accomplished something offensively on Sunday that is normally reserved for high school and college offenses, but almost never done in the NFL. In fact, in the last 1,000 NFL games played, I only found it one other time (going back to 2010). It is the...
Jerry Jones knows what he has at quarterback.
Tony Romo may not be Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Aaron Rodgers, or Drew Brees, but not many are either. What he is without a doubt is a top-notch quarterback who played the game of his life on Sunday before throwing another late game interception.
Romo is who he is, and I think Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is ok with that.
Jones, who may...
Former Pittsburgh Steelers safety Will Allen was released Tuesday by the Dallas Cowboys after playing just 170 snaps in the first five games of the 2013 season.

Dallas receiver Miles Austin will miss his second straight game with a hamstring problem, and Denver cornerback Champ Bailey is still out with a foot injury.
Austin and Bailey were inactive for Sunday's game between the Cowboys and Broncos. Bailey hasn't played all season after injuring his left foot in the second week of the preseason.
Austin has a history of hamstring...

Those who tuned into the Dallas Cowboys vs. Denver Broncos were in for a real treat as both Peyton Manning and Tony Romo lit it up, thoroughly carving up the respective opposing defenses all the way to 48-48 tie in the final minutes.
In the end, the up and down career of Tony Romo took another shot as he tried to fit in a pass to tight end Gavin Escobar and was intercepted by Broncos linebacker...
