Packers 28 Cowboys 7: Ruined in the Rain Published 12/13/2015 in Cowboys Nation

Someone left the 'Boys out in the Wisconsin rain, Sunday evening.  And like that metaphorical cake in the Donna Summer song, they melted.   Drops, tips, untimely penalties and poor tackling conspired to produce an uninspiring first half that saw the Dallas Cowboys fortunate to carry a 14-0 deficit against the Green Bay Packers into... read more→

Assorted Notes, which are suddenly more plentiful when you're picking through a win. -- It's refreshing to play a team that's more clumsy than you have been.  The Dolphins made the type of special teams bungles the Cowboys made during their losing streak.  Letting a kickoff hit the ground in the end zone and bounce forward to your four yard... read more→
