    The Cowboys Won Because They Suddenly Learned to Pass Block. Plus: Odell Beckham!

    First, a word about Odell Beckham Jr.'s second-quarter catch: It was the best catch I've ever seen happen in real time. I'm not sure if it was better than this Tyrone Prothro catch for Alabama against Southern Miss, but that was some magical stuff by ODB. I could watch that GIF again and again -- wi ... More >>

The Bi-Ringed Mouth Breather from the Bayou finally got his comeuppance, Tony Romo executed like a champ when it mattered, DeMarco Murray was DeMarco Murray, and the defense held up its end of the bargain by keeping the Giants' offense at bay much of the game. Now let ... More >>

    Extreme Pizza Offers Great Deal for Cowboys Fans, and a Terrible One for Giants Fans

    Extreme Pizza has really great deals on a slice of pizza, you know, if you're a Cowboys fan. Over on Dallas' Reddit page, user Brett_Knows_Best, perhaps on his way to celebrate National Cheese Pizza day, posted this shot before tonight's game versus the New York Giants. Seems pretty fair.
