Cowboys 43, Seahawks 39
ESPN Game Update
That was one of the wildest games I’ve seen in a long time. The Cowboys looked anemic to begin with; dominated most of the game on the legs of rookie sensation Julius Jones; gave the game away through penalties, two Vinny Testeverde interceptions, and poor defense; and then staged an improbable comeback in the final two minutes, including a spectacular if questionable endzone grab by Keyshawn Johnson, an onside kick recovery, and then a touchdown jaunt by Jones to close the game out.
Jones, the Cowboys’ first pick in the 2004 draft, was injured most of the season but has had spectacular games three weeks in a row now, including nationally televised games on Thanksgiving and Monday Night Football.
Alas, it’s likely too late for the Cowboys, who are a dismal 5-7 with a mediocre defense. Still, they’re mathematically in the thick of the wildcard chase in the moribund NFC.
