It is truly the most extreme of situations when you concede 16 points in the first 16 minutes of the game, and yet, you feel that the defense has done a strong job at minimizing damage. But, that is the case on Sunday when 3 of the 4 Giants' early scoring drives started at or inside the Dallas 31 yard line.
Turnovers caused what the coaches refer to as "sudden change" and to the Cowboys credit, they responded well enough to keep the team within striking distance. And that continued later in the game when two 4th Quarter Giants' drives were just for 3 points as opposed to the 7 that would have ended the team's chances.
The defensive philosophy on Sunday emerged into a very curious one based on the success that the Giants were having (or in this case, not having). New York was not moving the ball well, and so Dallas seemed to play more as an accomplice to the crime, as opposed to any sort of driving force.
They hardly applied pressure to Eli Manning again. Jus...

IRVING, Texas Every interception thrown by Tony Romo isn't necessarily his fault. That was a point Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones was trying to make during Thursday's practice at Valley Ranch.
Romo has thrown a league-high 13 interceptions this season with nine of them coming in his last two games at Cowboys Stadium.
"There's a lot of things that...
I would like to first wish everyone good spirits in lieu of Hurricane Sandy and say that I hope everyone out there is OK, and suffered little to no issues with this massive phenomena.
The Week 9 WR rankings have two immediate concerns: Jordy Nelson of the Packers and DeSean Jackson of the Eagles.
Jordy Nelson is dealing with a hamstring issue, but could’ve played last week...
Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo has thrown nine interceptions in his last two games at Cowboys Stadium with four coming in Sunday's 29-24 loss to the New York Giants. The franchise quarterback that has never tossed more than 19 picks in a season is on pace to throw 30 this year.
At 32, critics are wondering out loud if Romo should be the Cowboys' quarterback of the future...
Brandon Carr was the Dallas Cowboys’ big free agent signing during the offseason and expected to become a shutdown corner for their defense. The fifth-year cornerback did a good job against the Giants last weekend despite New York having some of the top wide receivers in the league (New York also didn’t pass that much). How does Carr account for his good showing in Week 8 compared...
Last week: 16 (-1)
The good news for the Cowboys is that they rank 8th in yards per play differential and 7th in rate of sustaining drives differential. The biggest issue, by far, has been turnover differential so far for them, as they have a turnover differential of -11, 2nd worst in the NFL. The good news is that turnover differentials are incredibly inconsistent, as...
The return of DeMarco Murray in Week 9 is far from certain. Murrary has been hobbled with an injured foot and did not play in Sunday’s loss to the New York Giants.
“It seems like he’s moving around a little bit better,” Garrett said. “Again, that’s an injury you have to be patient with. We don’t want to rush him back then take any backward steps. We’ll see how he...
