I watched that Houston game last week with the Steelers. Houston got consistent pressure on passing downs but they could not stop the run at all.
I know the Browns defense didn't perform well last week, but the reality is that our offense kept them out on the field for 10 more minutes than the Dallas D was.
Despite that, Rogers looked good and Wimbley was consistently assigned to pass coverage. Especially after Whitten went crazy. They really didn't get lit up until late in the game on the ground.
Romo still got his chin busted up, that was the kind of hit that can finish a season a lot of the time. The Barbarian left with bruised ribs in Game 1.
They just got worn down by a HUGE offensive line. After watching that game for a thrid time I wouldn't be surprised if Dallas managed to finish 14-2 in the NFC East. That's saying something.
When Romeo chose to kick that field goal I was actually happy. I knew the game was over. I knew there was no reason to risk injuries. Get this thing over quickly, why risk anything else when scoring tie breakers are going to come into play at the end of the year?
This week is different, there's blood in the water.
