Cowboys vs Vikings post game bashing

Well, congratulations goes out to the winner of the “Toilet Bowl” .  The Dallas Cowboys effectively lose to the 1-3 Vikings and slip to a 1-4 record.  Here now, is the trophy presentation…

 

Dallas Cowboys 1-4

 

While Peterson/Favre was able to fumble one and give the ball back to the Cowboys, they didn’t have the fortitude to finish up the game with a win. Even though the last play of the game looked like a fun game of “monkey in the middle”.  Why are teams resorting to this type of play?  I’ve seen it at least a half-dozen times this year.

There were the obvious Dallas penalties, 11 for 91 yards, and the defense was able to sack Favre 3 times.  At one point, I thought they were going to have to call for a stretcher.

But he stayed in there, and ended the game with 1 TD and only 118 yards and 1 fumble. (Which won’t do much for his QB rankings.)  To be honest, I was surprised he didn’t throw his usual pick 6 at the end of game.  I guess someone told him to just run the ball.

 

Austin dinged for unsportsmanlike conduct

 

So, the Vikings move to a 2-3 records. Still 3rd place in the division.

Next week they come to Lambeau Field for the Packers.  I’m hoping to see a healthier Green Bay team next Sunday.  And we can start our 2010 sweep of the Vikings.

 

CM3 should be cleared to play next week
