Week 6 Odds: What is up with the Dallas Cowboys?
How ‘bout them Cowboys?
So Tony Romo had a bad night at the office. Sure, you could look at the negatives: five interceptions, a lost fumble and a 49.9 passer rating. But how about the positives? How about two TD passes and 309 yards through the air? How about keeping it together and leading Dallas to two scoring drives in the dying stages? Those things will keep happening; five-pick performances will not.
Meanwhile, the Cowboys improved from 10th to sixth in the NFL in defensive efficiency, holding the Bills’ offense to a field goal. And they did it without CB Anthony Henry, who missed the game with a high ankle sprain.
Monday night also presented Nick Folk to the world. The Dallas coverage units aren’t too good, but Folk is now 10-for-11 on field goals this season. This is a pretty good team to be getting 6.5 points at home, even against the mighty New England Patriots.
