Week 10: Vikings Shine in the Spotline So much has been said about Kirk Cousins’ inability to win in prime time or against good teams. Cousin’s record against teams over .500 stood at 5-28 before Sunday night. He came out on fire, leading the Vikings to two opening scores capped off by Kyle Rudolph...

Last week, Philadelphia Eagles head coach, Doug Pederson, guaranteed a win against the Cowboys. It looked like a strong possibility. The Cowboys had just lost to the New York Jets, of all teams, and the Eagles saw a golden opportunity to push themselves back into the playoff race. Pederson’s guarantee...

At the beginning of last week, the Cowboys were favored to win in New York. The Jets were winless, and the Cowboys needed to get back on track.

Wow. I was admittedly dead wrong about this game. I expected high powered offense from a revamped Cowboys squad and a dangerous, if not methodical, response from the Saints. Neither one of these things happened. Prescott and the offense looked flat and frankly brought back memories of last year’s group....

Week 2: Cowboys Deliver in DC Once again, it looked like the Cowboys were going to stumble into trouble against an inferior divisional opponent. Dallas struggled in the first quarter. The offense managed only one first down, and Dak Prescott threw an ugly interception that bounced off Randall Cobb’s...

Week 1: Cowboys cut Giants down to size When the Giants stopped Dallas’ opening drive, then proceeded to score on their first possession, it seemed the Cowboys were going to get themselves into a divisional dogfight. By the time the second quarter ended, however, Dallas found their groove and...
