The wondering Lions traveled south to the lands of Arlington Texas, home to the Dallas Cowboys. Their game plan to knock off the Cowboys from their high horse had already been studied and implemented. What was needed to accomplish this feat was easier said than done.
The Lions in the first half were unstoppable; they were well prepared and well equipped to overrun the Cowboys and to continue their own NFC playoff quest. What the Lions brain trust hadn’t prepared for was for something unexpected, something you couldn’t plan against; a new Cowboys attitude.
This philosophy when believed could turn the entire franchise around and now it had taken hold. It permeated the halls of AT&T Stadium and was believed by all that heard it. In the simplest of geeky ways, Jason Garrett had been saying it over and over, “Be your best, not try your best”. “Be your best, not try your best” finally it was accepted.
During the half time break the Dallas Cowboys learned that in the throes of defeat the real character of its players would reveal itself.
Once the second half of the game started the confident Lions thought they could continue to have their way with them Boys’. But it was obvious to the 91,410 in attendance that the Dallas Cowboys came out with a new attitude and from that point on they were going to play better, smarter, and with higher intensity.
In the second half the Detroit Lions were held for only 3 points. While the Dallas Cowboys scored three times for 17. The Dallas defense forced 3 Lions turnovers and flat out beat them in every down there after.
Tony Romo was clutch throughout the game especially in the last minutes. He was superb throwing to Witten, Beasley, Bryant, Murray, and two touchdown Williams. I’m sure with this type performance lots of Romo haters were disappointed they couldn’t talk crap about him.
Demarcus Lawrence was a goat in the final minutes of the game by picking up a fumble only to give it right back. However, he shook that mistake off and continued to play, because that’s what he was suppose to do. Seconds later the awesome trifecta happened, he sacked the quarterback, stripped the ball, and recovered the fumble all on the same play, oh redemption!
We, at jtracker48.com would like to thank the Detroit Lions because without their support the Dallas Cowboys wouldn’t have won.
