Dallas Cowboys (Dallas Cowboys Facebook Page) So far we haven’t learned anything new about the Cowboys and Broncos after one half of football. Peyton Manning is really good, and the Cowboy’s defense is really bad!  Dallas started off the game with the football and promptly marched down the field and scored on a 2-yard catch by Dez Bryant.  Romo was spectacular on the drive, completing 5-5 for 64 yards while chewing up almost 7 minutes of clock. Denver got the ball back and Wes Welker quickly found out that Barry Church can hit pretty hard. Church smacked Welker across the middle, knocking the ball out and causing an incompletion.  However, Church was taken to the locker room with a face injury but later returned with extra protection on his facemask. Ernie Sims partly backed up his tough talk from earlier this week with a big hit on Eric Decker, forcing a fumble that led to a DeMarco Murray 4-yard touchdown run. That 2nd touchdown by Dallas put them ahead 14-0, the 1st time all year that Denver has been down by 14. Unfortunately, the Broncos couldn’t be stopped for long as they went 80 yards in 50 seconds, capping off the drive with a 4 yard reception by Julius Thomas. Denver was unstoppable in the 2nd quarter, scoring 3 times and dominating the Dallas offense, limiting them to six points on two field goals. As the 2nd quarter came to an end, Romo scrambled around the pocket and threw a beautiful, 38-yard pass to Terrance Williams that put Dallas in field goal position with 4 seconds remaining.  Dan Bailey kicked a 48 yard field goal as time expired to get the Cowboys within eight points. Romo had a phenomenal 1st half, going 14/19, 222 yards and 1 touchdown.  Romo spent a lot of time scrambling around the pocket and had two beautiful throws on broken plays; one of them to Jason Witten and the other to Terrance Williams. Manning was as efficient as ever, going 11/14, 163 yards and 3 touchdowns.  Two of his touchdowns went to his favorite tight end, Julius Thomas who now has 6 touchdowns on the year. If you look at the time of possession for each team, Dallas held the ball for over 18 minutes and limited Denver to 11.  To have a chance to win this game, Dallas needs to make a couple of stops on defense and feed DeMarco Murray the ball to keep Manning off the field.

Jerry Jones: Cowboys had a “morale victory” against the Broncos

Despite the fact that the Dallas Cowboys were one drive away from defeating the Denver Broncos on Sunday,  but ended up squandering the game away with another Tony Romo fourth quarter interception, owner Jerry Jones believes his team had a morale victory. “I do. I know what’s going to happen to me when I say this, but that’s a good term,” Jones said, per the Fort Worth Star...

Jerry Jones goes nuts over Manning’s interception, not so much with Romo’s

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones couldn’t help but show his overexcitement upon seeing Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning throw his first INT of 2013. But as we know, Dallas eventually lost the epic game that was tied 48-48, after his boy Tony Romo threw an interception of his own, one that cost them the game. Suffice to say, Jones had a completely different attitude toward that one:

Who cost the Cowboys more against Broncos: Jason Garrett or Tony Romo?

First and foremost, it should be noted that it is nearly impossible to win a game in the National Football League after allowing more than 40 points.

Same Old Tony Romo? No.

(Photo Credit: Rob Carr/Getty-Images) Tony Romo, once again, made a terrible mistake late in a game. It’s a story we’ve all seen unfold before, in Washington last year, and in New York and Philadelphia before that. This time, it came during Tony Romo’s single best performance of his career, and it’s infuriating. However, Romo should not be #1 on blame lists on Monday. Because...

What did the Cowboys learn in the instant classic?

There may never be a more absurdly amazing game ever played in that sun-drenched, indoor stadium than the one that was witnessed on October 6, 2013. It will be measured as a simple loss for many, in a season where they have now lost 3 out of 5 out of the gate, and are on their way to what could be another season that finishes at the break-even record of 8-8. But, those people...
