Cowboys 45, Giants 35

Or, as the headline on MSNBC said this morning: "Cowboys Hit Stride in Victory over Giants."

Huh? Giving up over 400 yards and 35 points to New York is NOT hitting your stride. Thank God the offense--especially QB Tony Romo--was firing on all cylinders last night, because that vaunted "Phillips 3-4 defense" wasn't getting it done. Did safety Roy Williams spend the ENTIRE game attempting to run down New York recievers? I'm sure Dallas offensive coach Jason Garrett is hoping that head coach Wade Phillips isn't expecting his squad to put up those numbers every week.

I'm no Cowboy fan, but when you walk away from the television for 10 minutes to take a shower and each side has scored a touchdown while you're away. .well, that's just some sloppy defense, by both teams.

It should be an interesting season, I suppose. I wouldn't imagine the NFC East is the feared division it used to be, however.
