Cowboys vs Detroit

First of all:  We are 3 wins, ZERO losses against the NFC East.  As we expected, Cowboys are the strongest in this terribly inept division.

Detroit is playing pretty well, and is coming off a loss, plus this game is just before their bye.  It feels as if the Lions need it more than the Cowboys do.

Even with that in mind, I feel like the next two games are something of a benchmark.  Each of these teams (Lions and Vikings) have hurt us in the playoffs, and each don't look as good as us right now.  I want (and think we can) both of these games to be lopsided victories for us... especially the Vikings!  I will come in here with renewed pissedoffedness if the Cowboys don't show up in the game against the Vikings.  I want us fresh in December, but cannot afford to hear about the Vikings beating up on the Cowboys...not this year!

Detroit looks pretty good, but they're still just Detroit.  They don't match up well with us, but they do have a few things on their side:  a loud stadium, pretty solid team, and a bye just after the game.

Team is playing like a team. We just beat division foes by 2 TD back to back and finally won a road game.

Next week is a big challenge, but winnable, at the Lions. San Diego was the first game of this type, this one is the last. Our last chance to gain some real momentum and turn upfield for a serious playoff run.

Note, I am not saying we don't make the playoffs with a loss here. We just took a very strong lead in the division race and, while the team could collapse, it'd pretty much take that, or a Romo injury, to cost us the division at this point. (yes, I am knocking on wood as I type this).

But this game could be huge. Winning on the road against a good opponent after a 3-0 run through the division is just what this team needs to start believing in itself. Garrett has them playing hard, but to take the final step, the team has to will itself out of the .500 doldrums and step up and take a game because they want to be better than that. They need to know that they can go on a streak and win against good competition in their space. If they do, I think they beat the vikes at home and that brings us to New Orleans at 6-3.

Now, winning in the Superdome is one of the tougher feats in sports. That's why we have to start by doing it against the Lions. But armed with the confidence that back to back road wins against dangerous opponents can give, we'll give them all they want. And if we win, that has us staring straight down the barrell of a first round bye, at worst one game behind New Orleans, with a tie breaker. (and NO has games against the 9ers and @Sea to go)

But it has to start this week... and this is the last chance to build that kind of roll.

If this team is going to take the next step... something more than winning a weak division and hoping to get hot in the playoffs... they need to do it, now. There will be no second chance this time. New Orleans and Green bay are looming too close.

I think this game is huge for the Cowboys if they want to be a threat to make the playoffs, and more importantly, win a game. The last thing the team needs is to win the East and go out in the first round.

They have surprised me with how they are improving on defense. Putting a hurt on Stafford and the Lions is a good start.
Desperado

Gee, I'm wondering if Adam is off the Giants band wagon now?

Bevo, I see you didn't pick a winner yet, oh yeah we are not playing the Eagles this week cheers

I'll go with the Cowboys, but this post got up way to early for me to even try and predict a score.

Hey give Adam credit he already made his pick, which really scares me lmao.

 But I'm also going to wait to give my score, especially since I was way off last week.
LoneStar

Detroit always seems to have our number, team stats seem somewhat even. But hell the last we are up by 24 and still lose to them.

Might be nice to try and run the ball this week.
Desperado

Power rankings have the Cowboys at #10, and the Lions at #11.

I'm going Cowboys 33-31, in a hard fought battle.

Lets be honest here, the defense has been responsible for helping the offense in the last 2 games, they have not been very good.  Megatron will score, its what he does, but the defense with Carr needs to keep the pressure on him.

If this no name defensive line can't get pressure on the QB, it could be a long day. I think our LBers are good enough to stop Bush. Otherwise we will end up in a shootout like last time we played them.

Nobody can forget a 24 point lead, and then they come back and win.

27-24 Cowboys

We hold the Lions to 3 points?  LOL! This is not Philly. The Lions will score at least 24 on us. We will have to outscore them. I say we win 31-27.
LoneStar

that's a funny statement zigo! No Detroit isn't the eagles. The eagles had just set an NFL record for 6 games of 400yrds or more.

as soon as we beat them they go to suck status, imagine that pottytrain2

Lots of the so called experts picked the Eagals to win.

The Majority have picked the Lions, so now we will see if the defense can put 2 good games back to back.

The Cowboys will play more significant games than the one that takes place Sunday afternoon at Ford Field.

But none will have a greater impact on the team’s ability to break loose from the pull of .500.

Detroit is a good team, but nothing special. The Lions boast a top-10 offense and a defense that ranks near the bottom of the league. The statistical similarities between the Cowboys and Lions are striking.

Can the Cowboys win this game? Sure. But how often have the Cowboys won games against this level of competition on the road in recent seasons?

Remember San Diego in Week 4?

An inability to win this sort of game on the road has sealed the team’s mediocre fate. This is what makes Sunday’s game so important.

A win allows the Cowboys to carry a three-game winning streak into next week’s home game against a bad Minnesota team. Take care of business there and the team is off to a 6-3 start.

A loss keeps the Cowboys in the clutches of .500 entering the Vikings game. A win there would nudge the Cowboys one game over .500 just in time to hit the road to face New Orleans.

The monotonous cycle continues.

If this team is different, if it aspires to heights greater than 8-8, it needs to beat Detroit. The Cowboys need to put some emotional distance between themselves and .500 to realize their potential.

Until they do, fans have no reason to believe this season will be any different than the past three.

I think everybody agrees with this assessment, but if we lose its not the end of the season. But this team has to start beating the teams that they should be beating.

But I should also point out, the Cowboys are not the favored team this week.

Romo and Witten look terrible today.  The Lions are playing pretty solid football, except for not good ball-handling.  I really thought we would play better defensively (although, we appear to be trying to tackle the ball, rather than the player (which is why we have the turnovers)).

I really thought it was going to be a defensive battle, because of the way we match up.  Instead, we aren't playing the best defense, and they are.  I don't believe in luck, however, we have been blessed with more things going our way...so far.

It feels as if Romo is off by a lot, and Bryant was able to make up for it once.

I really hope we win (duh), and I hope it stays low scoring.  ...But...I really hope we don't let the Vikings have a chance!  Win or lose here, I want us to play the Vikings like it is the SuperBowl.

Oh, and for the mouthy guys:  Giants still scare me.  If those jerks are within a couple games of us in December, I am very much concerned.  Anyone that believes the Giants are playing the best they can, are sadly mistaken.

Every team in our division has a solid chance at the division title.  Right now, we have the best chance, and I hope that continues.

Cowboys just held, with first and goal inside the 5.  That makes me feel a bit better.
Hawk

Cowboys defense will win it or lose it with 2 minutes left. People didn't like Garrets play calling well now they have Callahan and he sucks!

Oh yeah nobody gives a crap about your Giants cyclops_ani
Hawk

Holy Sht Cowboys defense did it....they finally stopped his azz
1adam12

I don't know why you have such a chip.  You used to seem smarter to me.  Trying to sully this win is just your freaken style.

Too many points scored in the final 8 minutes, although it was close all day.

Have no idea why you are such an irritating jerkazz, but we are in great position!  We better not stink it up against the Vikings, but I'll say it now:  this game scares me, because I want the win sooooooo bad.
Hawk

I'm not a jerk at all....Your Friggin Giants are not relevant at all when they do something, then I'll worry.
Hawk

I'm worried about the Cowboys right now
Hawk

Our Defense sucks
1adam12

Offense!  We had the lead, had the ball, 64 seconds remaining.  What the heck?

Crazy.

I hate the Giants, and I hate you Hawk.  You and Danny White both.
zigomanis18

...and once again, we fail in a big game. 27-17 4th quarter lead ..and we lose...Nothing new. Actually, were it nor for the turnovers, we would have been blown out. Did you see the total yards difference? The Lions had over 600 and we were at about 250..Ridiculous.

WHAT a bad game to lose. If we won, we would have had a full 2 game lead in this division! Instead, we fail...AGAIN!

You gotta figure the Deadskins to lose today as well so a win would have been awesome at this point...but no.

I predicted 7-9 to start the season...I'm sticking with it. There is nothing top show me that they will be any better.

But Hey, Romo still had 3 TD's and 0 Interceptions...I like that. But, we still cannot run the ball!
Nightrider

Looked like the offense was playing conservative to protect their lead. The when the Lions made their move, and Romo countered and put us up by 10. Then it looked like the defense went soft to try and protect the lead.

This was a bad coaching job, but damned if you don't and damned if you do. Cowboys can always find a way to lose, best team in the league at doing that!
Desperado

There are so many wrongs with this game I won't even start. It will take a few days to digest this crappy game.

Dez Bryant put on a display I've never seen by a player before. He needs to be suspended and fined. Even when the Cowboys were winning he was acting like a punk. Sorry but Dez has become a Diva, reminds me of T.O..

He doesn't give a crap about the team its all about him.

I watched part of the audio, or listened to part of it. Bryant was telling Romo he was wide open, and Romo was telling him he didn't see the safety. It really was a harmless conversation. What went on between him and Witten. I'm not sure of. But I think Witten could kick his *** lol

here's DEZ transcript from sideline 'blow up' with Romo

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

USATODAY
NFL.com has released the audio from Dez Bryant’s tirade on the sidelines of the Cowboys’ game on Sunday against the Detroit Lions, and it turns out Bryant was being more positive with his teammates than he looked.

While Bryant was certainly animated on the sidelines, the audio shows he was mostly trying to fire his team up and explain to wide receivers coach Derek Dooley and Tony Romo that he was open. It wasn’t the temper tantrum that many pundits assumed he was throwing.

We’ve transcribed what we could of the sideline interaction, and you can listen along at the NFL website.

BRYANT: No! We can’t let them do that! These [expletive] [unclear.] They’re manning me the [expletive] up. We destroy that!

Hey — we gotta mix that [expletive] up! [Unclear, PA covers up Bryant's comments.]

They press me! [Or maybe "It's fresh meat!"] It’s over! [Unclear]

ROMO: What?

BRYANT:  [Unclear] I’m cutting! I’m cutting clean.

I know on that last one, they bust me, it’s over.

[Talks with coach, unclear with stadium noise]

Man, we good on that, Tony. We the best in the NFL on that. We the best in the NFL. And I could…I’m telling you, if you look at it on film…man, if you look at it on film, [unclear] I swear to God out there, [unclear, PA announcer speaking] on the zero, I’m cutting. [Unclear] [expletive] [unclear.]

DOOLEY: Hey, what you gotta do, you gotta set it down.

ROMO: You gotta set it down.

DOOLEY: In other words, don’t look at Tony, because the safety’s coming out of the top.

BRYANT: I see that.

DOOLEY: So when you run… When you run…

ROMO: Look it. Look at me. I’m throwing the ball and you’re already over here.

BRYANT: Yeah.

ROMO: You should be setting down on that.

BRYANT: Yeah.

DOOLEY: Run like this. Don’t look at Tony and then stop, and say “Tony.”

ROMO: I don’t care [unclear] [expletive] like as soon as you’re over the ball you should tell me right now.

DOOLEY: Give it to me.

ROMO: Stop or you’re gone.

BRYANT: OK.

ROMO: [Unclear]

DOOLEY: It looks open, but they’re coming out of the top.

BRYANT: It did. It did. It did.

DOOLEY: I knew what you saw because they doubled Wit.

BRYANT: [Unclear] I hadn’t seen it… [Looks out on field.] Pick that [expletive] up man. C’mon…

We [expletive] good, man. We bust our *** not to win this [expletive] game.
