Fourth Quarter and it's over.

Dallas has 4th and 1 Barber gets the first down, but he fumbles only to get it back. Then we have a holding penalty and it's time to punt. Unbelievable. 12 damn penalties for 100 yards is killing us!!!!!!!!!!

Pats get the ball back....
This is a key drive right here and Dallas D needs to stop the Patriots. Going down by 2 scores could be too much to handle this late. So, here we go. On 1st and 10 on their own 20 Faulk runs for 6 yards. On 2nd and 4 Dallas stops Faulk for 2 yards. On 3rd and 2 (huge play!) and Brady scrambles for 3 damn close. On 1st and 10 and Stallworth catches a 69 yard touchdown because of a horrible secondary. It was a great play action fake and Reeves can't tackle. Pats go up by 14.

Dallas gets it back down by 14...
Thompson has a great kick off return to the Patriots to the Pats 23 yard line. On 1st and 10 with 12 minutes left, a pass to T.O. is caught for 14 yards and it's 1st and Goal! That was a nice catch by T.O., as the ball was near the ground. On 1st and Goal, Romo is sacked. On 2nd and Goal Julius Jones runs it to the 5 yard line for 7 yards. On 3rd and Goal a pass to Hurd is too far and it sails out of the endzone. Dallas decides to kick a field goal here, which is questionable down by 14. I am not sure this is the right call here, but we do it and the score is 38-27.

The Pats get the ball...
The Pats get a first down on two plays to Moss. On 1st and 10 in Dallas territory, Faulk runs for 5 yards. On 2nd and 5 with 8 minutes left Welker gets a first down because Newman can't make a damn tackle. Ware is hurt on the play. He walked off the field. On 1st and down with 7 minutes left Faulk gets nine yards. The Dallas D looks tired. On 2nd and 1 Faulk runs for 5 and a first down. The clock is down to 6 minutes and the Patriots are well in field goal range. On 1st and 10 it's a Moss touchdown with a flag: offensive pass interference. On 1st and 20 Moss catches it for 15 yards and it looks too easy for the Pats. On 2nd and 5 with 5:18 left Faulk runs for a first down and it's First and Goal. On first and goal Faulk runs for 2 yards. On second and goal Faulk is stuffed for no gain. On third ans Goal Brady throws the ball away. Pats kick a field goal to go back up by 14.

Dallas gets the ball back with 3:59 left and down by 14...
On the first play Romo is pressured and he throws a sidearmed interception. Game over. I am stopping the blogging.

Summary: It's pretty simple why we lost this game. Penalties and a horrible secondary killed us from being able to stay in this game. The defense also dried up at the end. A disappointing loss for week 6. I hate Bellichek.
