On Thursday, the Lone star state took a setback when Texas Longhorns lost against Alabama’s Crimson Tide but Dallas Cowboys won it back yesterday after winning their first playoff game against Philadelphia Eagles with the final score of 34-14. This was the first playoff win for the Cowboys in the last 13 years (since 1996).
But if any of the 92,951 fans left Cowboys Stadium, their glittering new palace, dreaming about a championship, quarterback Tony Romo and Coach Wade Phillips were not about to discourage them.
“We definitely wouldn’t be in this position if we didn’t think we were capable of such things,” Romo said. “You’ve got to be thinking you have a chance. The tournament’s begun and we’re off to a good start.”
Phillips, who won a playoff game for the first time in his career, said: “We’re playing as good as anybody right now. I think we’re a very good football team and we’re on a roll.”
They think big here — big as the gigantic video screens looming over the field, big as the smiles and the hair on the dancing cheerleaders who decorate the video during almost every timeout.
Best of luck Cowboys for rest of the playoffs.
