The Cowboys Learn How To Finish [Opinion]
Without a doubt, the most impressive thing I saw last night when the Dallas Cowboys beat the NY Giants 24-17 at Met Life Stadium, is that the Cowboys learned how to finish a game. If you're a Cowboy fan you should be happy about a couple of things.
1. The play of Tony Romo. Romo had 3 TD passes and 1 interception and passed for over 300 yards. I'll take that any day of the week.
2. It was a coming out party for Kevin Ogletree. 2 TDs and over 100 yds receiving solidifies him as the 3rd Cowboys receiver that has Cowboys fans saying "Robinson who?"
3. The defense showed that with the right players Rob Ryan's complicated defense will work.
4. The running game was very solid, DeMarco Murray gained over 100 yds.
But the most impressive thing is that Cowboys learned how to finish. They were able to overcome the demons they had from last year. I lost count of how many penalties Dallas had in the 4th qtr. At one point they went from a 1st and goal to 1st and 30, yet thats when Romo connected with Miles Austin for a TD.
Then when the game was on the line and the boys thought that they had the game in the bag, Jason Witten is called for holding and Dallas is pushed back to 3rd and 10. This is were we saw the Cowboys go for the kill instead of playing it safe. A slant pass to Olgetree and the Cowboys ice the game and impress the rest of the NFL.
Good job Jason Garret and good job Dallas...ok now do it again for the next 15 weeks. The NFL season is very long and who knows how this 2012 Dallas Cowboys team is gonna end up. But for at least one night, they learned how to finish.
