NFL playoffs: Vikings - 34, Cowboys - 3
The Vikings crushed the Cowboys on Sunday in Minnesota in the second round of the NFL playoffs, ending the season and what was a great month of football in Dallas. The Cowboys offensive line folded, Romo was in trouble all day and was sacked six times, they turned over the ball and the Cowboys came away with no points from several early drives that should have resulted in points. If there is any consolation, some people on ESPN last night compared this team to the 1991 Cowboys. That team also went 11-5 and got killed in the playoffs, but came back to win three Super Bowls. This team is not THAT good, but by cleaning up the locker room, winning the division, discovering that Romo can be a leader and Phillips can win a playoff game, and with the emergence of Miles Austin, they seem to be on the right track. Looking forward to the 2010 season.
