Saturday Night Football Open Thread: Cowboys Vs. Bucs

New, comments

Saturday night NFL action returns tonight as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers host the Dallas Cowboys. The Bucs have been wildly inconsistent this season and now sit at 4-9. The Cowboys are 7-6 and tied for first the NFC East. They need a win to maintain pace in both the division race and for a possible wildcard berth. The NFC East is likely going to come down to a wild finish this season.

The most interesting aspect of this game might be the fact that from a purely statistical perspective, Cowboys QB Tony Romo might be having the best season of his career. He has some work to do to reach career highs in a couple categories, but the combination of yards, touchdowns and few interceptions are all really quite impressive. Of course, the Cowboys have been up and down as a whole so the statistics don't necessarily reflect the complete picture.

This is a must-win for the Cowboys, but Tampa Bay is wildly unpredictable. I think the Cowboys get the win, but Josh Freeman suddenly blowing up would not surprise me in the least.
