Recent events (read: the last two games) have conspired to make Cowboys fans focus in with laser-like precision on all the negative aspects of the Cowboys. Aned that may have impacted our appreciation for some of the remarkable performances individual performances that have been going on right in front of our eyes.
- DeMarco Murray leads the NFL with 1,133 rushing yards and is on pace for 2,014 yards, which would pass Pro Football Hall of Famer Emmitt Smith’s single-season team mark (1,773 in 1995).
- Tony Romo has a 103.6 passer rating and looks to top Pro Football Hall of Famer Roger Staubach’s single-season club mark (104.8 in 1971). Romo would be the first Cowboy to post a 100+ passer rating in two seasons.
- Dez Bryant has 50 catches and is on track to become the first player in team history with three consecutive 90-catch seasons
- Henry Melton has five sacks and is on track to join Pro Football Hall of Famer Randy White as the only Cowboys DTs with 10 sacks in a season.
The Jaguars shoud be just the right opponent at the right time to get the Cowboys and these players back into franchise-record breaking mode. At least that's what BTB's panel of writers think, as they all pick the Cowboys to win in London.
