The Day after (Remember, wait til December)

I would start this blog talking about how good the Cowboys looked and how the Cowboys are in gear for great things this year. The problem is that it's only September and December is around the corner.

If you remember this time last year the Giants have given them all that they could stand and the Cowboys allowed Miami to score 20 points on them. Now they did take care of Chicago, but we haven't gotten to the Buffalo game yet. For me it's all about December and the playoffs. Having said all of that, here is the run down on the Green Bay game.

Intersting facts:
Romo was raised in the Milwaukee suburb of Burlington...The Cowboys' three road victories over the Packers came in Milwaukee...Witten had seven receptions for 67 yards...Dallas has opened consecutive seasons with a 3-0 mark for the first time since 1976-77...The Cowboys outgained Green Bay on the ground, 217-84...These two clubs have squared off 28 times, with Dallas holding a 16-12 advantage...The Cowboys are 12-1 in their last 13 road games...Green Bay is 10-2 in its last 12 home games and 19-4 in its last 23 games overall...When Barber has at least 11 carries, the Cowboys are 22-1.

Now the meat:
All the stars showed up even TO, the stats don't show it but he does like to sprint. He helped Felix "the cat" Jones go 60 yards. Tony Romo went 17-of-30 passing for 260 yards with one touchdown and an interception, as the Dallas Cowboys bested the Green Bay Packers, 27-16, to record their first-ever win at historic Lambeau Field.

Marion Barber ran for 142 yards and a touchdown on 28 carries for the Cowboys (3-0), who joined the New York Giants as the only undefeated teams in the NFC. Felix Jones gained 76 yards on the ground, including a 60-yard touchdown, and Miles Austin caught two balls for 115 yards and a score. Terrell Owens was limited to two catches for 17 yards.

"It was a really big win for us," said Dallas coach Wade Phillips. "We certainly made some mistakes, but I thought our team played with a lot of heart."

Dallas entered play 0-5 all-time at the storied venue.

Aaron Rodgers totaled 290 yards through the air on 22-of-39 passing and added a rushing touchdown for Green Bay (2-1), while Ryan Grant amassed 54 yards on 13 carries. Greg Jennings had a game-high eight receptions for 115 yards.

"You've got to give Dallas credit," said Rodgers. "It's disappointing. You can't settle for field goals all the time like we did tonight."

So What's next:
Washington, and don't let the record fool you, Washington is still the most hated team in the division. so. throw the records out the window, this is for blood. the records won't mean a thing when these two hook up. If you are not convinced, just direct your minds to 1989 when the Cowboys went 1-15. There only victory was to the Redskins, and that's the year that Washington beat Denver in the Super Bowl. Tune in to the radio show Friday at and you will find out who.
