Many questions were answered in Dallas Sunday night as the Cowboys topped the New York Giants 20-8 at Texas Stadium. Tony Romo was 20/30, 244 yards, and 2 TD's and the Cowboys defense sacked Eli Manning 8 times(3 from DeMarcus Ware, the NFL's current sack leader). Even though the Giants were missing their leading rusher, the Cowboys were all over them and did not give up a touchdown. Other than Dallas winning a crucial game to remain a wild card in the NFC, many other questions were answered.
The Terrell Owens and Jason Witten beef seemed to be non existent as the two of them, along with Romo, were seen laughing together in the second half on the sideline. Owens caught 3 balls for 38 yards and Witten grabbed 5 for 44 yards. It was reported on Saturday that bru-ha-ha broke out on the practice field between the two, and it almost got physical.
The biggest question going into the game was if the Cowboys were going to let the drama affect them on the field, and obviously it didn't. Dallas seemed comfortable on both offense and defense all night, there were no confrontations between any of the players, and everyone on the team contributed somehow in the win. I feel like this could be the turning point in their season if they want to make a run in the playoffs. Maybe somehow, they can all pull together and play as a team from here on out. They know play an extremely tough game on Saturday against the Baltimore Ravens, who lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers late in the 4th quarter on a questionable call. I don't expect any distractions during the week because the team is coming off a huge win, and even during all of the controversy, every player expressed how winning was most important to them. Dallas controls their own fate and it will be interesting to see how bad they want to be playing in January.
