The Dallas Cowboys finally claimed victory in the playoffs for the first time since December of 1996 Saturday night over the Philadelphia Eagles 34-14 in Arlington, TX. Following a scoreless first quarter the Cowboys really found their rhythm, posting 27 points in the second while holding Philly to just one score.
“It’s just … rewarding,” said QB Tony Romo. “It makes me proud of the guys in there – fighting, grinding, staying committed to the approach. I’m happy for the guys, happy for Wade, happy for Jerry.”
Felix Jones produced a 73 yard run in the third quarter for six, marking the Cowboys final TD of the contest. The Eagles scored again in the fourth but the game was already well out of reach at that point. Dallas is set to play Minnesota in the NFC Divisional Round next Sunday at 1:00 PM.

The Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys will square off this Saturday for the second time in seven days at Cowboy Stadium. Last week Dallas dominated the Eagles 24-0 and earned the rights to call themselves NFC East Division champs in the process. Eagles head coach Andy Reid is certainly looking forward to Saturday’s contest following his team’s lack of production during Week 17.
“They played better than we played,” said Reid. “They coached better than we coached. You get back to business and you do it in a very matter-of-fact way. If you get caught up in all the what ifs and this and that, then you’re making a mistake. We don’t have time for that. It’s a hurried-up week and you have to get right back on the horse and figure out how to not get bucked off again.”
This year the Cowboys have the advantage on the offensive end, as they usually rack up 400 yards per game to Philadelphia’s 358. The Eagles are slightly better defensively, giving up just six fewer yards on average. Cowboys vs. Eagles tickets are now available!
Alex Auld came up big with 31 saves for the Dallas Stars as they went on to battle their way past the Detroit Red Wings 3-1. Mike Ribeiro notched the first goal for Dallas on a power play 9:26 into the first period. Matt Kinskanen added to the lead early in the second before Henrik Zetterberg found the net for Detroit. From there the Stars defense was able to contain the high-power Red Wings offense, while Loui Eriksson tacked on the insurance with eight minutes to play.
The game was even closer than the box score shows after a controversial Brad May shot attempt 6:24 into the third period. May put the puck just inches past the goal line, but officials waved it off because a whistle had blown seconds earlier.
Detroit head coach Mike Babcock certainly wasn’t pleased with the way the situation was handled. “It wasn’t blown dead. It was a goal,” he said. “The guy never meant to blow the whistle. It was a shot.” Detroit can only look ahead to their next game against the Florida Panthers this Friday. The Stars will next welcome the Columbus Blue Jackets to Dallas tomorrow at 8:30 PM.
The Dallas Cowboys are going into the 2009 training camp with a new mentality. Expected to make the Super Bowl, a dismal 9-7 2009 season means that Wade Phillips is not going to be to be a laid back coach anymore. Although the change may mean tougher training regimens, Cowboys players seem to welcome the new mentality. With the loss of wide receiver Terrell Owens, the Cowboys are going to use the running game more often. Marion Barber, Tashard Choice, and Felix Jones will anchor the running back corp. If the Cowboys want to make the playoffs, quarterback Tony Romo will have to step his game up with wideouts Roy Williams and Patrick Crayton. In what many consider to be the most competitive division, the Cowboys will need to defeat the Eagles, Giants, and Redskins for a chance to win.

After the resounding succeses that were the Las Vegas and Phoenix NBA All Star games, next season’s edition is slated to be bigger and better. The Dallas Mavericks will be hosting the event at the brand new, 80,000 seat Cowboys Stadium. The state of the art new home of “America’s team” features massive 72 by 160 foot LED screens that will ensure that every fan in attendance will have a clear view of the action. The Mavericks last hosted the All Star Weekend in 1986, at Reunion Arena.
Mavs owner Mark Cuban had previously rejected an offer for the team to host the event, citing that season ticket holders for host teams generally do not have a chance to attend. The arrangement at Cowboys Stadium will ensure that all season ticket holders will have an opportunity, though premium tickets will still be in high demand.

The Dallas Cowboys are scheduled to match up against the Oakland Raiders on Thanksgiving Day, November 26th at 3:15 p.m. The 2009 Cowboys are likely to be a top team in the NFC. They are returning quarterback Tony Romo and tight end Jason Witten. After releasing pro bowler Terrell Owens they will rely on former Texas Longhorn Roy Williams at wide receiver.
Dallas will be introducing a new stadium which will seat approximately 80,000 and for major events can be expandable to reach capacities around 100,000. With the new edition the Cowboys organization will be the host to Super Bowl XLV in February of 2011.
This season the Cowboys will play the Redskins, Giants, Eagles, Falcons, Panthers, Chargers, Raiders, and Seahawks at home. They will again face the Redskins, Giants, and Eagles at their respective stadiums. Other away games for Dallas will be against the Buccaneers, Saints, Broncos, Chiefs, and Packers.

All-Star wide receiver Terrell Owens was recently cut last Wednesday night from the Dallas Cowboys. This is the third team Owens has left on bad terms with, following the San Francisco 49ers and the Philadelphia Eagles. T.O. will always be remembered as one of the greatest but most controversial wide outs of all time.
After his highly publicized release from the Eagles, Owens scored 38 touchdowns, and caught 235 passes for 3,587 yards in three seasons for the Cowboys. His most recent release came as a shock to most fans knowing his numbers were great aside from his off the field antics. fter leaving three teams on bad terms it is questionable what team can actually handle him.
After letting go of Matt Cassel and Mike Vrabel, the New England Patriots freed up almost $20 million in cap space. They are currently on the look out for a third receiver to complement Randy Moss and Wes Welker. Bill Belichick will more than likely pass on T.O., but this same thought was there a couple years back right before he traded for Randy Moss.

The 2-9 Seattle Seahawks may have gotten their running game back in order, but they still seem like a bird in the pan for the 7-4 Dallas Cowboys. Wide receiver Terrell Owens exploded for 213 yards and a TD last week after being held to under 83 yards for the last five games. Romo has led the Cowboys to back-to-back Thanksgiving day wins, by an average of over 29 points. With their starting QB back on the field, the Cowboys seem poised to make a run for a playoff spot.

After beating the New York Giants twice in the regular season, Dallas fell to the eventual Super Bowl champions in last years playoffs, abruptly ending a season that many thought would end with at least an NFC title. This year, the Cowboys are returning all the key ingredients to be back in contention, and they will certainly be gunning for their division foes, the Giants.
Season schedule and preview listed below! Home games are in CAPS.
Sun, Sep 7 @ Cleveland (FOX) 3:15 PM – The Cowboys start off the 2008 season on the road and put up some impressive offensive numbers, showing that Tony Romo’s success last year was not a fluke.
Mon, Sep 15 PHILADELPHIA (ESPN) 7:30 PM – The Eagles and Cowboys match up used to have a lot more excitement and anticipation geared behind it, especially on Monday Night Football. With the Eagles falling off the face of the football map, the Cowboys clean up for their first home win of the year.
Sun, Sep 21 @ Green Bay (NBC) 7:15 PM – Luckily for the Cowboys, they travel to Green Bay before the brutally cold weather hits, which could play a factor against a team that plays in a dome in Texas. Both teams will be there at the end of the season and this one should be a great match up.
Sun, Sep 28 WASHINGTON (FOX) 3:15 PM – Dallas split with the Redskins last season, winning their home game and losing their match on the road by a score of 27-6. The Cowboys will come to play at home for a close but impressive victory effort.
Sun, Oct 5 CINCINNATI (CBS) 3:15 PM – In a match up that will feature two of the best receivers in the NFL, the focus in this game will be which secondary can control the superstar. Will it be Chad Johnson or Terrell Owens that strikes first?
Sun, Oct 12 @ Arizona (FOX) 3:15 PM – The Cardinals will put a young team on the field that will hustle and go hard all game, but they lack true leadership which is why teams like the Cowboys have no trouble coming into town and picking up a road win.
Sun, Oct 19 @ St. Louis (FOX) NOON – The Rams are bad, the Cowboys are good. Good triumphs over evil, Cowboys win on the road without much of a contest.
Sun, Oct 26 TAMPA BAY (FOX) NOON – The Bucs are a team that everyone overlooks, and with the Giants looming on the Cowboys horizon in a week 9 match up, Tampa Bay gives the Giants a scare at home, but Tomy Romo leads a late charge to propel America’s team to the win.
Sun, Nov 2 @ New York Giants (FOX) 3:15 PM – The NFC equivalence to the Red Sox vs. Yankees match up is a Cowboys vs. Giants game. Dallas took both regular season games last year but fell to the G-Men in an exciting 2nd round playoff game. Dallas’s running game is too much for the Giants defensive line and NY falls for the first time at home this season.
Sun, Nov 9 BYE – A nice spot for a BYE week to rest up for the 2nd half of the season.
Sun, Nov 16 @ Washington (NBC) 7:15 PM – Like last season, Washington rebounds from an early season loss to the Cowboys and wins at home. The Cowboys look sluggish coming off of their BYE week and costly turnovers lead to too many Redskin points.
Sun, Nov 23 SAN FRANCISCO (FOX) NOON – The Cowboys return home for their first game in almost a month to face the 49er’s. Coming off the week 11 loss, Dallas is in no mood to let an inferior SF team escape with anything but a pounding. This one has the potential to be a real time blow out.
Thurs, Nov 27 SEATTLE (FOX) 3:15 PM – In a possible first round playoff match up, the Cowboys make sure to show the Seahawks that coming into Dallas and winning is not easy. Both defenses come to play but the Cowboys still take home the victory in a low scoring affair.
Sun, Dec 7 @ Pittsburgh (FOX) 3:15 PM – In the middle of their toughest stretch of the season, Dallas travels to Pittsburgh to face Big Ben and the Steelers during a cold Sunday afternoon match up. Big Ben has his game face on and leads the home team to victory.
Sun, Dec 14 NEW YORK GIANTS (NBC) 7:15 PM – This game will decide the division champion and fortunately for the Cowboys, they overpower the Giants right from the coin flip. Tony Romo comes to play and picks apart a NY secondary that hasn’t had a week off since their Bye week in late September.
Sat, Dec 20 BALTIMORE (NFLN) 7:15 PM – Romo and the Cowboys continue to roll, starting to see another division title on the horizon. Baltimore’s defense puts up a fight in the first half but can not keep up with Dallas’ offensive game plan.
Sun, Dec 28 @ Philadelphia (FOX) NOON – The game is meaningless because Philadelphia is not in playoff contention and the Cowboys have locked up home field in the NFC throughout the playoffs. Starters will be rested so avoid injury, and the Cowboys still manage to pull off the win with 2nd and 3rd stringers.
Dallas hopes to regain the title of NFC Champion and with this regular season schedule, certainly has every opportunity to make that goal a reality. If Romo can lower his Interception to TD ratio, the team will be in control of almost every game they play.
Dallas Cowboys Tickets will be available soon.
