Heading into their Week 9 meeting with the Minnesota Vikings as heavy favorites, the Dallas Cowboys pulled out a late 27-23 victory. The Cowboys seem to like to make their fans bite their nails, so quarterback Tony Romo’s late-game touchdown pass to wide receiver Dwayne Harris with 35 seconds left on the clock was just another ride in the roller coaster that is the Dallas Cowboys.
After reviewing the game, I’ll use a combination of the film and stat analysis to grade each position from Sunday’s big win. In addition to traditional stats, I’ll also use numbers from Advanced NFL Stats, including expected points added (EPA). EPA measures a player’s impact by tracking the number of points a team can expect to score before and after the plays in which he was involved.
