If NFL power rankings were solely based on entertainment, the Dallas Cowboys would probably be the league’s best team.
Once again on Sunday, the Cowboys were in the middle of another three-ring circus but this time managed to survive, defeating the Washington Redskins 24-23.
The victory grants Dallas a stay of execution in the NFC East until next week when they play the Eagles in another win-or-go-home game for the division title next Sunday.
Tony Romo kept the Dallas playoff hopes alive with a 10-yard toss to DeMarco Murray, who moments earlier nearly cost Dallas the game by running for a nine-yard loss to setup a 4th and goal from the Redskins 10.
Cowboys radio play-by-play man Brad Sham seemed apoplectic at the score and after last week’s fiasco against Green Bay, can you blame him?
The narrow escape sets the stage for another NFC East title game for the Cowboys, who lost the crown during the regular season finale in ’11 and ’12.
Oh, one last thing. You want to see the NFL’s biggest statistical dirty secret?
