What a regretful first half for the Cowboys. On the first drive the boys fumbled, but they would have been in a position to go for it on fourth anyways (because we can’t kick a field goal), which wasn’t a sure thing.
The missed kick (see…) on another drive really killed any semblance of momentum. John Carney, a really reliable kicker who remains unsigned, had a good chuckle over that I’m sure…
And can anyone explain to me how Gerald Sensabaugh had no idea that he had just given up a ridiculous bomb to Sidney Rice? All he had to do was recall that he was actually involved in an NFL divisional round playoff game, turn his head around and put his hands up to knock that pass down.
At this point all we can do is hope for Favre to get over confident and make a terrible pass, or Adrian Peterson to fumble.
Long story short, we may have lost this game before we gave ourselves a chance to win it.
