The defense played incredible, giving up a total of 180 yards and had three sacks, while Terence Newman ran an INT back for a 50-yard TD.
The Jets had just nine first downs in the game and converted only 2-of-14 third downs. The Jets also trailed in time of possession by nearly 15 minutes.
The Dallas defense had Kellen Clemens on his heels all day long—he even misfired on 10 throws in a row! Running back Thomas Jones also had only 14 attempts for 40 yards.
Eric Mangini couldn't get anything started the whole game, as the Cowboys D was everywhere on the field. The Jets now fall to 2-8 and are a horrible 0-5 on the road this season.
Romo and T.O. have connected for a touchdown 23 times—the most since the start of the 2006 season.
Marion "The Barbarian" Barber had 18 rushes for 103 yds and a TD, while Julius Jones had 14 attempts for 64 yards. The two-headed monster ran all over the Jets defense and created space to get the passing game open for Witten and T.O.
Everyone played their part on the field today. Players were clicking on all cylinders and were in the right place at the right time.
Dallas even used Roy Williams the right way today by having him blitz almost every down and putting Patrick Watkins in the backfield to cover.
Tony Romo tied Danny White for the most TD passes thrown in a season by a Dallas QB with 29.
The Cowboys have won two straight Thanksgiving games for the first time since winning three straight from 1994-96. The Cowboys have also scored 24-plus points in 12 straight games.
If you don't have the NFL Network, give your TV the middle finger because that's the only way you're gonna see the game. HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!!!!
