Ok Cowboy fans, let’s get one thing straight. Just because the Cowboys lose doesn’t mean the sky is falling. At the same time just because they win doesn’t mean that we are going to the Super Bowl.
This win against the Bengals was just plan sloppy. Crayton had too many drops. Romo threw another interception. The Defense got drove on and allowed Cincinnati to come back from 17 down to make the game interesting. Somebody tell me what kind of team are we looking at.
Tony Romo threw for three touchdowns, including two in the fourth quarter, to lead the Dallas Cowboys to a 31-22 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals at Texas Stadium.
Romo completed 14-of-23 passes for 176 yards, while also throwing an interception, for the Cowboys (4-1), who were coming off a home defeat to the Washington Redskins. Felix Jones ran for 96 yards and a touchdown on only nine carries, and Jason Witten had eight receptions for 79 yards and a score. Marion Barber rushed 23 times for 84 yards.
"I thought that was a real good win for us," Cowboys head coach Wade Phillips said. "I think you learn a lot when you make mistakes and still overcome them. That's part of learning to win, part of being a team when things aren't going great. We kept fighting in the game and finally came through at the end. I was really proud of our team with the way they fought all the way through."
Terrell Owens, who last week complained of not touching the ball enough, only made two catches, but had a 57-yard touchdown in the fourth that proved to be the game-winning score. He finished with 67 yards receiving.
"They are doubling Terrell every play," Phillips said. "That's what teams are doing. But again, we went back to the running game. If you keep those guys back deep, they won't have enough up front to stop our running game."
Dallas leads the all-time series between the clubs, 6-4...Owens' touchdown was the 136th for his career, tying him for fourth all-time with Marshall Faulk...Romo has now thrown an interception in eight straight games, the longest current streak in the NFL...Chad Johnson had three catches for 43 yards for the Bengals.Next week Arizona, and this could be a game Dallas looses.
