Zebras in their natural, infuriating habitat.
Let's get all that negative stuff out of the way, since today ought to be a day of rejoicing.
Loser: The Officials
The replacements were all over the place today. Both teams were the recipients of bad calls (or non-calls). Demarcus Ware and other Cowboy rushers were well offsides on multiple plays, but no flags were thrown. Bruce Irvin and Chris Clemons consistently got penetration, only to be held in horrendously obvious fashion by the Cowboys' offensive line.
On the flip side, Russell Wilson was the beneficiary of a phantom unnecessary roughness call as he was pushed out of bounds, and Seattle also garnered no pass interference calls all day.
Loser: K.J. Wright
The only reason I have Wright on this list is because of his dropped interception. Aside from that, Wright had a monster day and routinely made plays in the backfield, proving that he can be a Pro Bowl-caliber player.
But when Tony Romo graciously gives you an interception (that could've potentially been a touchdown), it's impolite to turn down the offer.
Loser: Seattle's Zone Coverage
Jason Witten pretty much dismantled the Seahawks' zone defense by himself. The Cowboys' lone touchdown drive of the day was a result of Jason Witten converting third down after third down. You have to wonder what Gus Bradley's thought process is. If our zone couldn't stop Kevin Kolb, why would it stop Tony Romo?
