Originally written on Know Your Dallas Cowboys: The Blog  |  Last updated 10/15/14
Miles Austin caught a touchdown in the Madden simulation of Sunday’s game, but Dallas still fell to the Giants. There should not be any question that Jerry Jones is a Sean Lee fan. Jerry was not willing to consider this team as anything less than a Super Bowl contender until the Cowboys lost Lee for the season. Jerry now says the team is “going to have to adjust for him” and that he may have lower expectations. Even with the injuries, most simulations have the Cowboys giving the Giants quite a game. However, none of the simulations predict a Dallas win. Here’s a summary: What If Sports: N.Y. Giants 26, Dallas 23 AccuScore: N.Y. Giants 26, Dallas 25 NumberFire: N.Y. Giants 25, Dallas 24 Team Rankings: N.Y. Giants 26, Dallas 23 Madden (ESPN): N.Y. Giants 29, Dallas 24 * * * Very few commentators think the Cowboys will win. Of 12 commentators on ESPN, 10 think the Giants will win. One of the two who think the Cowboys will manage an upset was Nate Newton. Michael Irvin also predicted a Dallas win on the NFL Network’s pregame show. * * * Tony Romo’s name showed up on a poll of NFL players about the league’s most overrated player. Romo was tied for second by receiving 8 percent of the votes. The leader was Tim Tebow, who received 34 percent of the votes. Michael Vick and Ray Lewis also received votes.
