10. The Cowboys have won 2 games this season. In both they’ve committed 13 penalties. I have no idea how to even begin to start explaining that. I do know that they won an NFL game despite a ridiculously inept offensive line that got quarterback Tony Romo sacked 4 times and opened holes for only 38 yards rushing by DeMarco Murray on 18 carries. Not often that the formula for an NFL win is 13 penalties + 3 turnovers + 4 sacks.
9. With it being Hispanic Heritage Appreciation Month and all, I wonder if the refs held the pre-game coin toss with a … peso?
8. Worst news of the day: Safety Barry Church and his season-ending Achilles injury. That means more Brandon Carr at safety or perhaps Mike Jenkins. Don’t expect Dallas to suddenly, desperately find the number of Brodney Pool. And don’t believe anyone who mentioned Carr at safety as a possibility. No one – and I mean no one – even whispered it before the game. Genius.
