Cowboys come from behind to win

I’ll have more on the Dallas Cowboys victory over the Detroit Lions. I was on call yesterday so I didn’t get to see the game until late last night. What happened to the “improving” Dallas Cowboys defense?

Update: The Lions spanked the Dallas Cowboys defense. They racked up almost 400 yards of total offense. The running backs combined for about 150 yards on the ground. They gave up no sacks, no turnovers and no interceptions. So, how did they lose? I’m sure that the question that John Kitna and the gang are asking right now.

The key to winning in the National Football League is execution. The Lions offense executed for 3 quarters. This is great except the game lasts for 4 quarters.

Game Balls: Detroit Lions offensive line. They allow John Kitna to get the ball down field. This is an offensive line that has been terrible all year. They finally pulled together to turn in a great performance. Marion Barber again turned in huge performance. 3 touchdowns. Finally, my last game ball will go to Terrell Owens. No seriously. Yes, I know he had only 3 catches but he didn’t whine or pout. His constant double teams allowed Jason Whitten to run free for 15 catches.

  1. As a long suffering yet faithful Lion’s fan, I can tell you that this is the typical game that we win. Supposed to get our ass kicked but rise up to the meaningless upset.
    When Kevin Jones stops trying to imitate Barry Sanders and just tries to plow through the hole is when he is the best, and that’s what we saw yesterday.
    But you do have a point: the Cowboys didn’t put any pressure on Kitna all day, and our line isn’t that good.
    Crying in my beer moment: Not too many calls went our way.

  2. Sorry that you are crying in your beer. 🙂

    The Cowboys have been using a complication of skill and luck to win games.

    BTW, Kitna was really P.O. at the end of the game. There were some bad calls but then again there was some bad plays in crunch time that cost the game.
