Romo, Cowboys Fly Past Seahawks At Home, 34-9.

Dallas finally got the convincing win they’ve been needing since back in September today, November 27th on Thanksgiving Day in Texas Stadium over the hapless Seahawks, 34-9.  From the opening drive to the end of the game, Dallas dominated in every aspect of this one. 

Romo had a terrific day thanks to his O-line usually giving him plenty of time to stand in the pocket and look for an open receiver like either Jason Witten, Roy Williams or T.O.  He had another 300+ yard game with three touchdowns, one to Witten, one to T.O. and for the third straight game, rookie TE Martellus Bennett caught a TD pass. 

The defense shut down any thought of Seattle running the ball and DeMarcus Ware took over the NFL lead in sacks with three on the day before going to the sideline with an injury late in the third quarter.  But the damage was done as Dallas had accrued a 31-9 lead at that point heading into the fourth quarter.  Whether it was Maurice Morris or former Cowboy RB Julius Jones, Seattle couldn’t get anyting going on the ground, even forcing an early fumble by Jones that Dallas recovered to set up their second touchdown drive of the first quarter to take a 14-0 lead.

Matt Hasselbeck, although getting sacked five times on the day, did manage to throw for good yardage early in the game getting his team inside the red zone on three straight drives, but the Cowboys’ defense stiffened forcing three field goals and Terrence Newman got his second interception of the season on a fourth-quarter drive by the ‘Hawks that gave Dallas the ball at their own 1-yard line.  It seemed that it should have been ruled a touchback as his momentum carried him into the endzone, but the ball was marked down at the Dallas 1 instead.

Jason Witten had his best game in a month and Terrell Owens and Roy Williams made several big catches as he appears to be getting more and more involved in this offense.  Witten had 9 receptions for 115-yards and a touchdown, Owens ended up with 5 catches for 98-yards and a touchdown also, and the rest of the crew, Bennett, Williams and Crayton all had two receipts each.  Of course Bennett had the 16-yarder for a TD. 

This was most definitely a game to give the Cowboys some much-needed confidence heading into a tough December schedule that will be the test to see if this team can make it into the playoffs and have any success once they do get into the postseason.  It was one of the best games they’ve played to date as the offense, defense and special teams all played well.  Yes, it was a struggling and below-average Seattle team that they faced today, but the effort, intensity and playmaking abilities were all present that has to be in place to win in any NFL game. (i.e. see St. Louis Rams game!)

    The Cowboys are admittedly back on the rise after a decade-long struggle, and much of the same can be attributed to QB A. Romo, but we still cannot properly assess DAC against the rest of the league based upon its rout of a horrible Seattle club. Some of us are still waiting on edge and wondering if Dallas will overcome its December blues.
