Sports Weekend

The Cowboys rolled over the Bears last night, 34-10, dominating a team known for it's defensive prowess. Looking at the final score you wouldn't know that the score was 3-3 at the half, or that both teams wasted opportunities to score touchdowns. You also wouldn't know that Chicago is a team that made it to the Superbowl last season, as Dallas pretty much had their way on both sides of the ball last night. All in it all it was quite an impressive performance, and the Cowboys join the Green Bay Packers (seriously?) as one of two undefeated teams in the NFC and five undefeated teams in the league. It's too early to start talking Superbowl, but not too early to start thinking that Dallas has the potential to be the best team in the NFC. In the rest of the NFC East, the Eagles-incredibly-hung over half a hundred points on the now 2-1 Detroit Lions as McNabb threw for 381 yards and four touchdown passes after two dismal prior performances. The Giants joined the Eagles in avoiding an 0-3 start by shellacking the Redskins 24-17, aiding the Cowboys in staying alone atop the NFC East.

FC Dallas also played last night. Fortunately, even most local soccer fans were probably watching the Cowboys game as FC Dallas lost a stinker 2-1 to the hopelessly inept L.A. Galaxy. Unbelievably FC Dallas is still in the hunt to lock down a playoff spot, and only need three more points in the standings to do so. Unfortunately they're next game is against Houston, a team that's already locked down a playoff spots, are five points ahead of FCD in the standings, and who appear to have Dallas' number.
