Against Philadelphia Dallas produced an average offensive ANPY/A of 5.3 and a better than average adjusted Pass YPA of 6.6. From a defensive perspective Dallas was horrible. Dallas allowed an ANPY/A of 7.4 and an adjusted Pass YPA of 9.2. The 9.2 is the second worst result of the year.

Last week I wrote about the defense

Do you see an improvement? Yah I didn’t either.

I’m extending the chart I did last week.

The real killer this year is the pass defense. Dallas is now 30th in the league in defensive pass efficiency allowed.

Game Notes

-Instead of adjusting to the ball RW runs himself out of position and tries to make a spectacular reaching back catch. He almost pulled it off but how about making the vanilla play RW … instead of running past the ball and reaching back just slow down.

-How come Sean Lee got almost no burn?

-The Felix screen. After the Giants game Rabblerousr wrote this:

Psychological Zen Mastery: My favorite moment of the game was the 71-yard screen pass to Felix Jones that extended the Cowboys lead early in the second half. In no small part this was because of the execution on the play, which was nearly perfect--particularly on the part of the much-maligned offensive line. More importantly to me, however, was WHEN the play was called. To me, it showed that Garrett had his finger on the game's emotional pulse. The situation: the Cowboys had dominated the first half; if I were a betting, man, I'd make a large wager that, in the Giants locker room at halftime, it was stressed to the defense that they needed to make a play. In the first third-and-long of the second half, therefore, it was likely that they would be trying to create a game-changer--ideally a sack or a sack-fumble--that would locate momentum firmly on the New York sideline. Garrett not only called a terrific play for third-and-ten, but the perfect play for that psychological moment in the game.

I immediately thought of that comment when Felix popped that screen. Dallas had just gotten the Bradie James pick and you can bet the Eagles wanted to produce a defensive play to reverse the momentum. They came hard on the blitz and Garrett makes them pay with the screen.

-More Choice, less Felix on the goal line please

-How come the defense looks confused pre-snap so frequently?
