Cowboys fans, we all got a very nice Christmas present from our ‘Boys in the form of a sweep of the Redskins, a shutout, and, most importantly, a playoff berth. While we can’t be quite sure exactly where the Cowboys will eventually settle in the post-season picture, one thing is for certain: this series has been given an extra week of life!
All kidding aside, while a 17-0 score looks very nice, it was quite misleading. After the game was over, I couldn’t help but feel like the offense played an awful game and the Cowboys were fortunate to cash in on an amazing defensive effort.
Was the cynical December Cowboys fan creeping up in me or do the numbers actually back up my initial reaction? It’s time to break down the offense once again to find out.
