Last week: 17 (-5) Record: 4-5 I said anything could happen in the Dallas/Philadelphia game. Apparently me believing in the Cowboys again qualifies. They play 5 of their last 7 at home. After having the league’s toughest schedule through 8 games, they have the league’s 2nd easiest over their final 7 and that includes Pittsburgh, who just lost their starting quarterback and might be the only above average team left on their schedule. They don’t have to play the Giants like they did last year. They rank 10th in yards per play differential and 12th in rate of sustaining drives differential. They haven’t turned the ball over in the last 2 weeks and their turnover differential is improving, something I said would probably happen. If they can go +0 in turnovers or better the rest of the way, they can win 9 or 10 games and the division. Studs QB Tony Romo: 19 of 26 for 209 yards and 2 touchdowns, 1 throw away, 1 batted pass, 101.9 adjusted QB rating, pressured on 12 of 29 drop backs (3 sacks, 7 of 9, 1 throw away) CB Orlando Scandrick: Allowed 5 catches for 31 yards on 9 attempts, 1 pass deflection, 1 penalty, 6 solo tackles, 2 stops CB Brandon Carr: Allowed 4 catches for 56 yards on 7 attempts, 1 interception, 1 pass deflection, 3 solo tackles, 1 stop, 1 missed tackle LOLB Anthony Spencer: 1 sack, 1 quarterback hit, and 2 quarterback hurries on 29 pass rush snaps, 1 penalty, 2 solo tackles, 3 stops WR Dwayne Harris: 4 punt returns for 97 yards and a touchdown Duds LT Tyron Smith: 1 quarterback hit and 5 quarterback hurries on 29 pass block snaps C Ryan Cook: Allowed 1 quarterback hit and 2 quarterback hurries on 29 pass block snaps, run blocked for 10 yards on 6 attempts CB Morris Claiborne: 5 penalties, allowed 4 catches for 44 yards and a touchdown on 5 attempts, 5 solo tackles, 1 assist, 1 stop RE Jason Hatcher: 1 quarterback hit and 1 quarterback hurry on 41 pass rush snaps, 2 penalties, 1 solo tackle, 1 stop
