Dallas Cowboys vs Green Bay Packers, Week 3

So much for never winning at Lambeau Field. Dallas was a far better team as Wade Phillips and Jason Garrett decided to grind out the game with Marion Barber. Perhaps to keep the Green Bay Packer offense on the sidelines a little longer. Or maybe they just didn't think the Packer defense could contain him. Either way, it worked.

This is the best game I've seen from the defense in years. Ryan Grant was held in check and Aaron Rodgers struggled to find some rhythm. Most of their yards came in the closing minutes as the game was already decided. Is it a coincidence that Roy Williams was not in uniform that day? We'll find out more in the next couple of weeks? But my guess is yes. Roy's good for at least 80 yards and TD in each game. For the other team.

Tony Romo didn't look great and Terrell Owens was held to 2 catches for 17 yards. Very encouraging as we beat a very good Packer squad. Jason Witten is absolutely, without question the best tight end in the game today.
