Stay Classy, Dallas

If -- I said if -- you could read this, it would say Cowboys 41, Eagles 37. Promise.

*Quarterback Tony Romo: "Straight country western. Good thing we were Clint Eastwood tonight. ... We were lucky enough in the end to come out on top. I had two poor plays obviously that you want back. But this game is not without human error."

*The Cowboys outscored Philly 20-7 over the game's final 30:45.

*Roy Williams broke his forearm. But it's not all bad for Williams, as head coach Wade Phillips said it wasn't the safety's fault on DeSean Jackson's 60-yard catch and drop. If that's so, apologies to Roy. And that means Pacman, I'm looking at you.

*Even though Terrell Owens had a 72-yard touchdown, I'd say Donovan McNabb outplayed his nemisis. McNabb completed 25 of 37 for 280 yards and a touchdown, while improvising and shrugging tacklers like he did years ago. Said T.O., "I'm sure everybody across the nation had their popcorn popped, and I gave them something to munch on." T.O., for the record, had only one catch for four yards in the game's last three quarters.

*So who do you celebrate the win with: Wally Lynn, Greg Williams and Joe Avezzano on ESPN Radio, or Norm Hitzges and Donovan Lewis on The Ticket?-- Richie Whitt

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
