Cows win, Cows win!!

By: Josh Agnew

PhotobucketThe Cowboys did it! They went into Philadelphia to take on a much hated division rival and came away with a 20-16 victory. This was a big victory for the Cowboys who are now leading the NFC East division. Plus we're on a nice four game win streak.

Probably wouldn't think that would happen with the way things started out this season. With a 2-2 record at the beginning of the season and then having to go into overtime to pull out a victory over a lowly, lowly Kansas City team, things weren't looking to good for the 'Boys. There were a lot of questions and a lot of doubters, but now Dallas is starting to look good and starting to play up to their potential.

The Cowboys played well in all phases of the game last night. The defense did a nice job at stopping the big play offense of the Eagles. They didn't give up any big plays with the exception of a 45 yard screen pass to Eagles running back, LeSean McCoy.

Terence Newman, Mike Jenkins and the rest of the Dallas secondary were able to stifle and frustrate the two young, excellent Eagles receivers. Jeremy Maclin only caught 3 balls for 44 yards. DeSean Jackson only caught the ball twice for 29 yards. The secondary were also able to intercept McNabb twice in the game.

The defensive front were pretty much in Donovan McNabb's face all game long and recorded 4 sacks.

Tony Romo and the offense did have some problems against the blitzing defense of the Eagles but played well, none-the-less. Romo did finally throw a pick. His first in four games. But instead of getting down on himself and struggling the rest of the game after he made that mistake, Romo came back and completed 8 out of 10 passes and a nice touchdown pass to Miles Austin. Tony ended the game 21 or 34 for 307 yards and a touchdown and interception.

Roy Williams finally decided to get involved in the offense and caught 5 balls for 75 yards. Yeah, that's right, 5 catches!! That still don't make you the number one receiver, Roy, sorry. Especially after that duck out of bounds play you had. A real number one receiver would have turned it up field and out ran that lumbering linebacker that was coming after them. Not you, Roy, you duck out of bounds like some frighten child.

Miles Austin only caught that one pass in the middle of the fourth quarter for 49 yards and the go ahead touchdown. Patrick Crayton caught 2 balls for 74 yards and even the rookie Kevin Ogletree had 2 big catches.

Rushing wise, we did ok, but it could have been better. The Cowboys only had 76 rushing yards and Marion Barber had 50 of those. It would have been nice to see some more production as far as the rushing offense was concern.

Other than the low rushing output and the 11 bleeping penalties we had there really wasn't that many negative things to say about how Dallas played. The Cowboys looked good and continue to play like we all hoped they would at the beginning of the season. Let's hope they can continue to improve and work on clearing up those penalties and play like they have been the last three games.

We're 6-2 boys and we're looking good. Now lets get to working on the gameplan for next weeks game against the Green Bay Packers.
