Dallas Cowboys Season Review:

The Cowboys had an almost carbon copy of the previous season finishing with a record of 8-8 and being eliminated from the playoffs in a must win final game against an NFC rival, this time the Washington Redskins.

Fans are calling for Jason Garrett’s firing as well as for Jerry Jones to fire himself as General Manager.  Tony Romo is again taking the brunt of the fault due to key interception at crucial times in big games.

Dallas Cowboys Highlights:

  • The Cowboys started the season on September 5, playing a Wednesday game for the first time in franchise history.
  • Second team in NFL history to score touchdowns via interception, fumble return and punt return in the same quarter.
  • The Cowboys missed the playoffs for the third straight season
