The most overrated, overhyped team in the NFL is now 0-2 both straight up and against the NFL betting point spread.
The Dallas Cowboys were one of the favorites by many gamblers who made an NFL bet at Sbg global to win the Super Bowl but they sure don’t look like Super Bowl contenders after losing their first two games of the season.
The Cowboys go into Houston this week facing what can only be considered a must-win game. If the Cowboys start the season 0-3 then heads will roll in Big D. The Cowboys vaunted offense has not done much and the defense was shredded by Jay Cutler in a 27-20 Chicago win on Sunday. It is the first time since 2006 that Chicago has started 2-0. Cutler had three touchdown passes against the Dallas defense.
Cowboys 0-2 for first time since 2001 – It has been a long time since the Dallas Cowboys started a season at 0-2. The last time was when Quincy Carter was their quarterback in 2001. This was not supposed to be the season that Dallas started with two losses. The Cowboys were touted in the preseason as definite Super Bowl contenders. They have looked nothing like that so far this season.
Cowboys had their Chances – The Cowboys had to settle for an opening field goal on their first drive of the game. Dallas blew a chance to tie the game in the fourth quarter when David Buehler missed from 44 yards. Roy Williams fumbled away another chance as well. Tony Romo was 34 of 51 for 374 yards and a touchdown. He threw two interceptions but neither were really his fault as receivers dropped balls. The Cowboys did not run the ball at all as they had just 36 yards on 20 carries. Offensive coordinator Jason Garrett is definitely feeling the pressure after two straight losses.
Now What for Dallas? Where do the Cowboys go from here? They really need to win at Houston but that will not be easy against a Houston team that has a powerful offense led by Matt Schaub and Arian Foster. The Cowboys have an early bye week this season so you can expect fireworks if they go into that bye week at 0-3.
