Thanksgiving 2015 took a sharp left turn for Dallas Cowboys fans around 3:30 PM on Thursday.
Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo threw the first of two pick-sixes on the third offensive snap of the game and, by halftime, the undefeated Panthers had the game well in hand at 23-3. They ended up winning 33-14, but the final score wasn’t close to the worst thing that happened to the Cowboys on Thursday.
They also lost Romo for the season--you know, the quarterback without whom the team went a cool 0-7 earlier this year.
From a football standpoint, it was a bad, bad Thanksgiving for Cowboys fans, a group that includes Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James. James told Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com that his Thanksgiving with his teammates in Charlotte was essentially spoiled because "my family wasn't here and the Cowboys got (blown) out."
We've never identified with LeBron James more.
