Week 16: Cowboys - 17, Redskins - 0

The Cowboys clinched a playoff spot on Sunday with a nice 17-0 pounding of the Redskins. Romo certainly looks a bit different this December and has got some fire in his eyes. If they can beat Philly this week, they are NFC East Champs for 17th time. Let's go!

Week 15: Cowboys - 24, Saints - 17

The Cowboys defeated the undefeated Saints on Saturday in what was, so far, the team's biggest win of the season. In fact, though the Saints came on and made a game of it in the fourth quarter, the Cowboys really kicked the shit of them for most of the game. Who knows? Maybe this will be the year they get hot down the stretch, rather than fold.
On a related note, though I have never kicked a field goal in my life, I am considering flying down to Dallas later today and giving it a shot. Though they aren't holding tryouts, I really can't imagine them turning anyone away.

Week 14: Chargers - 20, Cowboys - 17

It must be December. The games are more intense and more important, and the Cowboys can't seem to win them. Barber gets stuffed three times on the three and the field-goal/kicking situation is ridiculous. Aren't any of those 60-year old Barr brothers still around that we can call in and take a shot at the kicking job? The Boys still have a shot at playoffs, but this in not a championship caliber team.

Week 13: Giants - 31, Cowboys - 24

The Cowboys lost to the Giants again on Sunday, 31-24. It certainly seems like the G-Men have our number. They knocked us out of the playoffs two years ago, ruined the opening of the new stadium this year, and now have us once again thinking about all of our December woes over the past few seasons. Not even going to get into the details and stats of this game. Let's just say fumbles and no running game will always kill you.
