An up-and-down game for the Dallas Cowboys proved a testing ground for their defense, an overall attack that proved up to the task against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as Dallas topped the Buccaneers, 16-10.
Over at Blogging The Boys, the guys were pleased with the impression the game left on defense, a group that proved key to the victory on Sunday.
Thank goodness for the Dallas Cowboys defense. ... The defense line harassed Tampa all game long, forcing them to basically give up with time still remaining on the clock. When Dallas stretched the lead to two scores, Tampa proceeded to call running plays with time winding down instead of challenging the Cowboys secondary.
On offense, however, questions were raised after a weak performance, a storyline the blog recommended you keep an eye on as the Cowboys prepare for their Monday night showdown with the Chicago Bears.
The offense, though? Scary. Penalties, blocking ineptness, drops, and miscommunications between QB Tony Romo and his receivers led to an embarassing display by Jason Garrett's troops for the second consecutive week. That will likely be the leading storyline throughout the week as Dallas has plenty of things to work on heading into next week's Monday Night tilt against the Chicago Bears.
