Cowboys dominate - finally breaking the old pattern of close games?

I'm not sure where to begin. How about with some records set today?
 
Jason Witten passed Ozzie Newsome on the all-time receptions list for Tight Ends. Tony Romo set two new franchise marks - the best single game completion percentage (88.5%) and most career games with three or more TD passes (21.)
 
I don't know what record Demarco Murray set, but there must be one. He racked up another 135 yards on only 20 carries. With 50 more attempts he will qualify for the single season yards per carry record, and his 6.7 is substantially ahead of the current team record of 5.32 yards per carry, set by Duane Thomas in 1970.
 
But I don't want to overlook some other great things Murray is doing. I tried to watch him in pass protection this week, and I thought he looked really good. In particular, on the TD pass to Bryant, it was Murray's block of a blitzing DB that bought Romo time to make the throw. He grabbed six passes today, but also had a drop - continuing about the only negative you can find in his game the last few weeks.
 
I was really glad to see Terence Newman has some life in him. He's actually been playing really well this season, and it seemed like his two interceptions were just a matter of time. The entire secondary looked really terrific, especially Frank Walker and Alan Ball (who really is much better at corner than he was at safety.) Other than one whiff on a tackle by Scandrick, I can't think of any serious negatives in their play. I bet Ryan Fitzpatrick can't think of any, either.
 
Even with a cast on his hand, Sean Lee's return was welcome. He was only credited with three tackles, but nobody had more. The entire defense tackled well today.
 
It's a little concerning to me that Fred Jackson racked up 114 yards on only 13 carries, but since the Bills were in no position to run for most of the day, he did get a few nice runs against a defense with 6 DBs on the field. I'm not sure it means anything, but I'm not convinced yet that the run defense is fixed.
 
Once again, Dallas was able to close out a game by running the ball - just like you're supposed to. On the last Dallas drive, Tanner and Murray evenly divided ten straight runs to move the ball 59 yards and chew up almost eight minutes.
 
The icing on the cake was losses by all the rest of the NFC East. Bring on the Redskins.

Thanks for sharing this information. I really like your way of expressing the opinions and sharing the information. It is good to move as chance bring new things in life, paves the way for advancement, etc. But it is well known to everyone that moving to new location with bulk of goods is not an easy task to move or shift from one place to other place because I have experienced about that and I face the problem like that. There I go to village near to my city faced that problem there.
