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…
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.
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.
