How efficient did the Dallas Cowboys look on Saturday night? Just to give you an idea, the Cowboys converted 7-of-13 third downs and had 399 total yards. Dallas had only two penalties the entire night for just 15 yards, and running back Felix Jones had consecutive 100-yard rushing games for the first time in his entire career. Does that give you an idea?
The Cowboys beat up on the lowly Tampa Bay Bucs 31-15 to move to 8-6 and one game closer to making the playoffs. Dallas quarterback Tony Romo was 23-of-30 for 249 yards and four touchdowns, including one rushing. Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett called a pretty balanced attack with just 30 passes and 37 runs.
This game was the epitome of an efficient Cowboys attack. It showed just how potent the Dallas Cowboys offense can be and what Dallas is capable of doing on the field. But at the end of the day, Dallas beat the Bucs, a team with a 4-10 record and a head coach possibly on his way out.
Yet with so many great things going right for Dallas, like only two penalties, it gives fans hope that maybe this team can make a little noise going forward.
Here are seven things we learned from the Cowboys on Saturday night in Tampa.
