Welcome to another Sunday Night Football game, this time featuring the Dallas Cowboys versus the Denver Broncos. Wait, what’s that you say? The Broncos aren’t playing? Oh, my bad. Must be a bad habit I developed with every primetime game featuring the Broncos. Regardless, a special shoutout should go to Drew Brees for making this not a game of Brandon Weeden going against Luke McCown. If the Blake Bortles and Matt Hasselback game earlier today was any king of indication, I probably would have been seduced by the sweet escape of seppuku by half-time. Sure, Brandon Weeden is still part of the equation, but it could have been so much worse. So much. And Brees return couldn’t come back any sooner, with the Saints already 0-3 and Atlanta (and Carolina) winning earlier in the day almost guarantees that there won’t be sub-.500 playoff team to allow their mediocrity and slow start to be bailed out. I say “almost” because this is the NFC South and I wouldn’t actually be surprised if the Falcons finished first in the division going 4-12. On the flipside, the Cowboys are trying to hold on until Dez Bryant and Tony Romo return, by Week 7 and Week 11, respectively, if things go right. However, based on how their season has gone thus far, I’d add about 15 more weeks to those projections…


By the Numbers


8 – The Cowboys have lost their last 8-of-10 against the Saints.

9Brandon Weeden has lost his last nine games.

25 – The Cowboys have only three passing-plays of 25-yards or more.

1 – How many healthy Tony Romo’s Dallas needs right now. Or I guess the number of unbroken clavicles Tony Romo needs right now.


Drinking Game


Take one sip of beer if…

The camera shows Tony Romo sitting on the bench causally watching the jumbotron.

You see the jumbotron.

NBC shows a promo for Blindside or Heroes.

You see Sean Payton’s lemon face. (See above for example.)

Jason Garrett calls a dumb toss, reverse, or draw on a 3rd-and-five or more.

Take one shot of liquor if…

Jerry Jones is seen in the booth with a surly look.

Katrina or Bountygate is mentioned.

There’s a crowd shot with fan holding a “Who Dat” sign.


Totally Legitimate Game Prediction


Cowboys – Hahah.

Saints – 1. (The number of fully-functioning rotator cuffs for Drew Brees.)

    Is Latavius Murray a RB 1 or 2 or 3 after today’s game.

      @Dom B: Still a 2 for me.

    So…yesterday I completed a “sell high” trade giving up Devonta Freeman for Dion Lewis. Due to the timing of fantasy football transactions, the trade actually takes effect tomorrow, letting me spend today miserably collecting points on Freeman’s second monster week in a row, knowing he’s about to disappear from my roster forever.

    How depressed should I be when I wake up tomorrow morning to see Lewis on my roster instead of Freeman? It’s a 0.5 ppr league.

      @friar: I would say okay. He can’t keep doing that… I think.

    Would you part with a $13 Allen Robinson or a $3 James jones to get a $16 Todd gurley in a keeper league??

    I have a slew of wrs and the gurley owner has Marques Colston as their current wr2… So yea.

    I’m somewhat thin a rb (Forsett,Morris,gore,freeman) and have a feeling at some point I’ll want to convert my wr depth into rb depth

      Jay says:

      @Bigdog: Probably James Jones, even if that is pretty good value.
