Cowboys Upset Indy

No way you think the Cowboys can force two Peyton Manning interceptions and a fumble with linebacker Greg Ellis out for the season. No way.

I’ll give Bill Parcells credit, he had his boys ready to go at Texas Stadium.

The Cowboys knocked off the previously undefeated Colts 21-14 with a great fourth quarter by the offense and defense.

Tony Romo and the O held the ball for 10:14 of the final stanza. The good old keep away game worked to perfection. After going up 21-14 on a Marion Barber TD run, Manning only got the ball one more time and the defense held.

The play of the game we won’t talk about is the 3rd and 7 the Cowboys converted with 2:09 left in the game. If Romo doesn’t hit Terry Glenn in stride the Colts get the ball back with at least 1:15 left and I’m not sure if the defense would have held up.

Last year Drew Bledsoe had a problem finishing the game and milking the clock. I go back to the Redskins and Giants games at Texas Stadium. Dallas had to beat the Giants in overtime while they lost that heartbreaker on Monday Night to Washington.

If the Cowboys win Thanksgiving Day against Tampa Bay they will be 7-4. That makes them a legit team to make the playoffs and even win the NFC East.

Philly lost Donovan McNabb for the year and the Giants are losing top lineman on both sides of the ball to injuries. The Cowboys can “do something” as Parcells likes to say.

Now if they can only get Mike Vanderjagt to make some darn field goals. This guy is stealing money.
