Cowboys Escape With Win Over Cleveland
The Dallas Cowboys played just well enough to win on Sunday, but will have to step it up to get a victory on Thanksgiving Day.Dallas played from behind most of the day, then came back to win an overtime affair 23-20 over the hard playing Browns. Some bizarre play calling by the Cowboys in the last few minutes allowed Cleveland to get the ball deep in Dallas territory and they took the lead, only to see the Boys move down the field and get a game tying field goal to send it to overtime.
After both teams failed to move the ball, Dallas got it back midway through the over time period and marched down for a game winning field goal. The victory moves the Cowboys to 5-5 for the season.
However, the Washington Redskins are coming in on Thanksgiving Day after shellacking the Philadelphia Eagles yesterday. If Dallas is going to win the game and head into a 10 day rest with momentum they will have to play a lot better and much more aggressively.
If they do not, Washington will come in and hand them their lunch. I question head coach Jason Garrett’s play calling and intensity to get the Cowboys were they need to be. But here’s his chance, let’s see how he and his team respond.
