Cowboys random articles

I will be doing a film review tomorrow; it should be interesting because the Cowboys did some new stuff in the Vikings game.

Meanwhile, enjoy the offerings of Nick Eatman and Todd Archer. Also, here’s an "outsiders" view of the Cowboys.

I was going to write something similar over the next couple of days, but Mickey Spags beat me to some of the good stats for the Cowboys.

They have scored more points (227) than anyone else in the NFC, and a whole 40 more than the NFC's next highest-scoring team (Giants). Only the 7-0 New England Patriots have scored more (279) in the NFL.  

They are one of just five teams with their offense and defense ranked in the top 10 going into Monday night's Indianapolis-Jacksonville game, and when it comes to the NFC, they are tops in offense and second in total defense.  

Tight end Jason Witten's 42 receptions rank second in the NFC and Terrell Owens' 556 receiving yards rank second in the NFC. Marion Barber, operating within the team's socialistic running attack, is fourth in the NFC with 479 rushing yards and tied for second in scoring (36 points). Rookie kicker Nick Folk leads the league with 65 points.  

They are tied for the NFL lead with 10 interceptions, led by Anthony Henry's four, good for second in the NFC despite not having played in the past 3½ games. They have two players on pace for double-digit sacks for the first time in eons, DeMarcus Ware leading with 5½ and Greg Ellis, in just four games, closing fast with 4½.

Mickey’s got some other interesting things in his latest offering, go check it out.

And finally, we have the final word on something that had been on every Dallas fan’s mind. Yes, a question that has perplexed us all season, in fact, back into the offseason. But the wait has come to an end. We now know why Tony Romo and Carrie Underwood broke up.

Underwood tells Entertainment Weekly, "He is about football. ... I don't think he's at the point in his life where he would be willing to sacrifice football.

"He hated so much that people thought he was paying more attention to me and that was causing him to not do so well."

By the way, they’re still good friends. Isn’t that what everybody says?
