NFL  > General NFL  > Great Win!
December 9, 2012, 09:37 PM
The Dallas Cowboys pulled an improbable victory over the Cincinnati Bengals. This was probably their best game since the season's opener against the Giants. They didn't play great throughout the majority of the game, but their last 2 drives propelled them to the "W". The defense had 2 sacks and forced the Bengals to turn the ball over on downs and forced them to kick field goals instead of touchdowns. Tony Romo for the most part continued his usual antics by getting the ball snapped with 1 second left on the playclock until the last 2 drives. Romo during the 2 minute offense was getting the ball snapped to him with 16, 14, 10 seconds left on the playclock which kept his linemen the advantage of knowing the snap count. Romo was able to drop back without being pressured much and Murray was able to make a couple of runs of 4 yards or more in the final 2 drives.

Obviously it was a great win because they fought through football and personal adversity with the death of one of their teammates. RIP Jerry Brown

This was a hard earned win and should give the team momentum.

The other wins and losses were frustrating because the Cowboys made it difficult on themselves, but the Bengals are one heck of a tough team that will cause other teams to make mistakes.
