I can't believe there isn't a thread started aobut last night's game yet. I'd have to say that was one of the most entertaining games I have ever seen in my entire life.
Every time you looked, Buffalo picked it off again!
Dallas comes back!
Buffalo picks it off again and runs it back!
Dallas battles back!
They miss the two point conversion!
Get the onside kick!
TO drops the ball, putting 13 seconds back on the clock!
53 yard field goal!
Dallas wins the game!
Wait! No they don't! Time out is called!
Another 53 yard field goal with 3 seconds to go!
Dallas wins!
I'm spent!

Serously, NO ONE ELSE watched this game?

Yeah, as much as I was trying to give up and go to sleep in the early 3rd quarter, I watched it all. HOLY SH!T. Great finish to a not so great game.

The Bills in the past few seasons have become the AFC version of the Cardinals, finding miraculous methods to pull defeat out of the jaws of victory. From the awful pick by Edwards on 3rd down when a field goal puts them up 2 scores, to not recovering the onside kick, to leaving a receiver wide open on the sideline at the 35 to set up the game winning field goal, the Bills find a way to lose the game. That has to be at least half a dozen games they've lost on a last second play since the beginning of the '06 season, and the second this year.

I was glad to see Dick Jauron is still an absolutely terrible coach, and I am sorry the good people of Buffalo have to suffer with him now.

As a Cowboys fan, they had no right to win that game, but I will take it! That's the kind of game Dallas found a way to lose last year, and most of the Tuna era.

This sets up a HUGE match up with the Pats next week!

Wow. Romo stinks. This game had shades of the Bears/Cardinals from last year. Romo > Grossman, but not by much.

Oh, and if they play like this against the Patriots next week, look for the score to be 73-0.

I was flabbergasted at how many talking heads were singing Romo's praises at the end of the night. They couldn't stop talking about how great he was for being able to overcome SIX turnovers (5 INT's and 1 fumble) and still lead his team to victory.

Guys, that doesn't mean Romo's any good. It just means the Bills really, REALLY suck!

One thing I think we can all agree on, though. This whole thing with coaches calling a timeout a split-second before a kicker makes contact with the ball? That shit needs to stop yesterday! It's beyond annoying!

It will, as soon as it backfires. Imagine if Folk's first attempt last night had missed wide right, but Buffalo had called timeout. Dallas tries the kick again, this time splitting the uprights.

The first time this scenario plays out will be the last time teams pull the late timeout trick.

Like TK said, all those turnovers make him even MORE like Favre.

Romo put up numbers comparable to Manning and Brady through the first 4 games, and no one said he sucked. True, this was the worst game of his (young) career, but he still found a way to get the win. If a bad game or a stretch of games was enough to judge a QB on, then they would have ran Aikman out of Dallas in 1991, instead of winning three SuperBowls with him.

Granted their was luck involved in last night's win, but you have to capitalize on that to win on even your worst days.

Romo didn't find a way to win. He survived that game. If the Bills had an even half-competent offense, Dallas would have had to overcome more than 3 offensive points.

The million dollar question is whether this is a one week anomaly or if Romo is falling back to Earth. I seem to recall last year Romo had amazing stats in his first four starts, and then he started sucking for the rest of the season, as the common wisdom at the time was it took four or five games for opposing defenses to figure him out. I can only wonder if history isn't repeating itself.

The only people who should be excited for next week are Cowboy-haters. If the Bills can get four interceptions off Romo, the Pats will eat him alive.

I'm sure CBS is glad to have a battle of unbeatens in the late doubleheader slot in October, but they very easily could have had this match-up on Thanksgiving Day. Instead, the NFL went with the only other option, the J-E-T-S, who should be E-L-I-M-I-N-A-T-E-D by Thanksgiving. Anyway the NFL could compromise and send the Colts to Dallas on Thanksgiving and the J-E-T-S to Atlanta, thus providing 1 quality game instead of 2 shitty games?

Survived, found a way to win, what's the difference really? It can be debated, but the final score cannot be. Romo made some big plays down the stretch, specifically that last drive with under 20 seconds left in the game (including the ball dropped by TO). Sometimes when your game is off you don't have t be good, but good enough.

I do agree with you that we should wait and see on Romo before anyone starts saying he sucks, or Brad Johnson should start. It wasn't long ago people were saying Favre should retire because he had a few bad games, but is anyone saying that now?

Either way, with the Romo from weeks 1-4, or the Romo from last night, beating the Pats will be damn near impossible.

Am I the only person alive that doesn't believe the Patriots will have an undefeated season?

Seriously, somebody has to and will beat them.

Sometime after Week 10 when Randy Moss pulls a hamstring or something.

Hey, Philly's McNabb/TO connection ran through EVERYONE in their first season. But as soon as TO went down, Philly's season was shot. What's to say history won't repeat itself for the Pats?

Umm ... the Eagles went to the Super Bowl with Owens out of action, then lost to the Pats when he returned for the big game.

5 games in is way to early to be talking undefeated. I just posted a new article breaking it down on my blog, but long story short, the teams they have played to date have sucked. Lets shelve the undeafeted talk until they get to 10-0,

Someone will beat the Pats, but it will be an illogical losing team. Don't they usually inexplicably lose to Miami once a year?

The difference between 'finding a way to win' and 'surviving' is that if your defense/the opposing offense don't keep the game close, then Romo's turnovers cost them the game. If those interceptions don't yield touchdowns, then Romo only had to score more than 10 points. A quarterback can't 'find a way to win' when his defense lets the deficit get too big.

Randy Moss pulling a hamstring will mean that the Pats will go from winning by 17+ to winning on a last second field goal. I buy into Bill Simmons' theory that the Pats are pissed this year and determined to prove that they own everyone.

I just meant that the Dallas defense is too suspect at this point, and not knowing if Romo will bounce back make me think they won't beat NE. But the Pats going undefeated? Unlikely, but 14-2 sounds about right barring a major injury.
