The Dallas Cowboys are 3-0. Wait, let me say that again.
The Dallas Cowboys are 3-0. Somebody pinch me, I must be dreaming.
If you asked anyone in Dallas for their predictions before the season started, even the most optimistic of responses would have been 2-1. Nobody would have guessed the Cowboys would beat the Bears in Chicago—not even your most die-hard, true-blue fans.
Now everyone is saying, “Why not 5-0?”
It’s a very possible outcome. With the winless and injured Rams coming in, the game should be a piece of cake for the Cowboys. Next week they face Buffalo, a team that hasn't shown much this season. This should be another win, but they still need to treat it like a big game.
The matchup everyone is waiting for is in three weeks when the Cheaters—oops, I mean Patriots—come to Dallas. This will be the benchmark game for the Cowboys. If they play close and squeak out a win, they will be considered the NFC favorite. If they get walloped, then it’s back to the drawing board.
But for now, it’s all smiles in the locker room at Valley Ranch. Even T.O. is happy because he is finally getting the damn ball. All Tony Romo needs to do to continue his success is get the ball to his play-makers.
Who knows, with the way the season started, this could be a team of destiny. We’ll just have to wait and see what happens when the season winds down in December.
