Finally nice to see a good game by Detriot. They've been getting blown out for the most part over the years.

Can't wait to see the Chief's and Bronco's game. That should be a good one. As I am checking odds, lines, etc., I think there are a couple good upset picks this week. I'm starting to feel Carolina might upset Oakland and Arizona just might beat Atlanta this weekend. Not quite sure yet, but I like those under dogs so far.

Never mind that one. Just found out Carolina has 3 starters out for this week's game and one of them is their best LB.

Prescott and Elliot continue to be strong MVP candidates.

Yea Kuechly is out with his second concussion. I'm still interested in seeing Oakland again, specially their OL and Carr.

Also interested in seeing Denver and Arizona. Mostly because of their QB situations. Both are potential lading spots for Romo.

Another interesting game to me is the Tampa Bay and Seattle game. Tampa Bay has been playing well the last 4 weeks and I give them a good shot to beat Seattle. If they do win, the number 1 seed is looking really good for us if we continue to handle our business.

With our win Thursday, our magic number to win the division must be getting comfortable by now. I don't think the giants will lose to Cleveland, but we have seen funnier things happen this year.

I think if we beat the Giants that should pretty much lock up the NFC East. Right now though, if the Giants win their next two game before the Cowboys game and then if they beat the Cowboys they will be in 1st place.

Now that Seattle has lost, we just need to win the division for a first round bye. Damn, its been a long time since I've said that.

Couldn't agree more.

@ Vikings
@ NYG

Win those two and the remaining schedule is a tune up. Not having to go into Philly in Week 17 "needing" a win would be quite sweet.

If Romo is going to get into a game this year that could be the game. If home field is locked up at that point they may decide to play Romo just to get him some snaps before the playoffs start.

I think that is exactly what will happen. I believe the Cowboys want to wrap up division early so Romo can get one more Horah !

Damn our offense looked sloppy last night. similar to the Egals game. I thought our defense played well for the most part however. Escobar killed 2 drives and of course Doug Free has his bad moments from time to time pass blocking. Penalties were also a killer. Got them at the worst possible moments. I admit Minnesota has an excellent defense, but the score should have been more like 24 - 6. We have to clean things up on offense. Ahh, give them a mulligan, all good teams have a bad game from time to time. I'm happy we got a win in an ugly game. We used to lose these type of game not too long ago.

Come on Pittsburgh! Give us an early xmas present this week. The sooner we wrap up the division, the more we can reast our key players and let Romo have his last horrah in a Cowboy uniform.

Now getting a first round bye is key. I want nothing to do with wild card weekend.
