The Cowboys seem to keep finding ways to stay in games and win them in thrilling fashion. One thing is clear, these Cowboys don’t fold, those days are over. Under Jason Garrett, the Cowboys have shown some amazing resiliency against all the odds that would make most teams wither. There was plenty of adversity, but the Cowboys stepped toe-to-toe with the Redskins and pulled out the victory. How ’bout that defense? Stifling. Rob Ryan has the defensive unit playing out of their minds, that was championship caliber defense tonight.
Best Performances: Sean Lee, DeMarcus Ware, Anthony Spencer, Dan Bailey, Tony Romo, Dez Bryant, Jason Witten
Worst Performances: Phil Costa (demote him), Martellus Bennett, Kevin Olgetree, Doug Free
Moving forward, the running game continues to be a concern, we’re not getting enough on opening downs, leaving us in too many 3rd and longs. In addition, the receiving corps are very thin right now, and they look lost out there. Dez is clearly still under 100%, but still made the big plays, no one else really stepped up.
The center position needs to be looked at closer. Phil Costa has been utter garbage when he’s been in the game, may be time to make the change to Kowalski.
The Lions come to Dallas, and this will be a huge challenge on both sides of the ball. The mental issues and bad play on offense will need to be cleaned up for Sunday.
