The Dallas Cowboys lost to the Washington Redskins, so the trend to make fun of them and Tony Romo through memes is once again in full throttle.
The biggest thing to take away from this game is Romo getting hunted down by the Redskins blitz time after time. He was sacked five times, which also took him out of the game for a while, replaced by Brandon Weeden, surprisingly not throwing a single interception. The Cowboys lost the ball through fumbles by Murray and Randle.
It’s also worth mentioning that the Redskins were playing with their third string quarterback, Colt McCoy, which puts Gruden in a dilemma going into next week, with Robert Griffin III cleared to play once more.
The Cowboys are no longer the best team in the NFL – not by record and not by ability. But this was an overtime loss with some circumstances going against them. This wasn’t a beat down and humiliation. It’s fine to make fun, but it’s important to remember the Cowboys still look like the best team in their division.
