How 'bout them Cowboys?

Monday, October 08, 2007
I just watched the best football game of the last five years.

Cowboys (third) playing the Buffalo Bills (23rd). Cowboys should have had (another) easy win.

But they didn't

Romo had 5 interceptions and two fumbles. We were missing tackles and blocking left and right. It came down to the end of the game... literally.

With thirty seconds left, we were down by 8. We made the touchdown (after several interesting plays) but missed the two pointer.

We then got the onside kick with 20 seconds left, so all we had to do was kick a field goal to win (we had to get into field goal range). After a bunch of plays (surprising how many plays you can run with 20 seconds on the clock), we kick the 52 yard field goal, and it goes in, but the play was called dead because of a timeout by the other team. So, with two seconds left on the clock, or kicker set up to kick his career longest field goal AGAIN. And it went in. It was so amazing.

But it took forever. Because of reviewing plays, timeouts, and touchdowns, the last 35 seconds of the game took 20 minutes to complete.

Stephen is right that we don't DESERVE the win, but who cares, we are one of four un-defeated teams in the NFL right now, and I will go with that any day!
