ARLINGTON, Texas -- The Dallas Cowboys and Pittsburgh Steelers needed a win Sunday and both played as if their season was on the line. The Cowboys are still walking it. Brandon Carr's interception of Ben Roethlisberger in overtime was the final blow in 27-24 victory Dallas had to have. The Cowboys (8-6) moved into a tie for first place in the NFC East with the New York Giants and Washington. "If you find ways to win, it's a great thing," Dallas quarterback Tony Romo said. Roethlisberger, playing in Cowboys Stadium for the first time since Super Bowl XLV, came up short in an epic duel with Romo. The two quarterbacks combined to throw for 680 yards and four touchdowns, but it was the one turnover by Roethlisberger on the first OT possession that proved the difference. "They made the splash play necessary to secure victory," Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said. "We didn't." Carr returned the interception to the 1-yard line. Dan Bailey...

Jerry: Romo played best game of his career

Tony Romo has had some outstanding performances over the last seven years as quarterback of the Cowboys. A few that come to mind include a five-touchdown game against the Buccaneers in 2006, four four-touchdown games in 2007, a 23-of-26 (148.4 QB rating) game last season against the Bills and a 22-of-27 (150.5 QB rating) game against the Eagles earlier this month. But none of those...

This Year’s Super Bowl Cinderella…….

A thought that wasn’t even feasible five weeks ago. But now America’s Team is hot and on a role—the kind of role that ends with … Continue reading »

Romo, Murray with big roles in overtime win

There was a pretty interesting stat that emerged from the Cowboys exciting win on Sunday that I think is worth mentioning before we move the Pittsburgh game completely aside. It is the following: Since 2004, there have been 5 times that the Steelers have lost a game while conceding 300 yards of passing to the opposing QB: Sept 25, 2005 - New England 23, Pittsburgh 20 - Tom Brady...

December in Dallas: Romo and the Cowboys should be able to knock off the Steelers and keep their playoff hopes alive

Each week we pick a matchup where public opinion backs the wrong side of the ledger. This week, I’m picking the Cowboys for two reasons: Dez Bryant and Tony Romo. The duo have been unstoppable of late and while Pittsburgh boasts a strong pass defense and Bryant is dealing with a significant injury to his finger I think that the quarterback and receiver will continue to play at...

Cowboys keep fighting for the playoffs

If it makes your stomach turn to know that many Steelers fans infiltrated your stadium for a pivotal game in mid-December that you simply could not afford to lose, it should. Maybe there will come a time when the Cowboys enjoy such ticket-holder loyalty that those who cannot attend the game make sure their tickets only find other home-team faithful, but clearly that time is not December...

Josh Brent Banned From Sidelines Again

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and coach Jason Garrett were unaware that Josh Brent was even on the sidelines at the start of their game against the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday. Brent, who was reluctant to be there, left in the third quarter as his presence began a debate on national television. A week and a … Continue reading »
