Cowboys Collapse in Classic Fashion

15 Dec

Joe Buck claimed it “The Worst Loss in the History of the Dallas Cowboys”.

Dallas was doing what it was supposed to do against Matt Flynn and the Green Bay Packers, leading 26-3 at halftime and dominating in all phases of the game.

The Pack came fighting back in the 2nd half and cut the Cowboys lead to 36-31 with under 5 minutes to play. Instead of running the ball to take time off the clock, Jason Garrett continued to call passing plays.

On a 2nd down and 6 from the Dallas 35-yard line, Romo was picked off by Sam Shields after he miraculously avoided a clear sack. Eight plays later, Eddie Lacy ran it in from 1-yard out to give the Packers a 37-36 lead.

Romo would get the ball back with no timeouts and a chance to drive the Cowboys down the field for the win. But on the 2nd play of the Cowboys drive, Rome was intercepted by Tramon Williams. Green Bay then ran the clock out to escape with a 37-36 win.

For only the 2nd time in its history, Dallas blew a game when leading by 23-plus points, and the Cowboys did it in classic Cowboys fashion.

Tony Romo threw 2 interceptions in the last 3 minutes of the game, when Dallas should of been running the ball (classic Jason Garrett game-management), and of course what would a devastating Cowboys loss be without Dez Bryant storming off the field before the end of the game.

Fortunately for the Cowboys, the Eagles lost to the Vikings which keeps Dallas’s NFC East division title hopes alive.
