If you watch the NFL for its parity and unpredictability, through three weeks you must be thoroughly entertained.
In other words, the Cowboys are 2-1 and the 49ers are 1-2. After San Francisco’s dominating Week 1 performance in Arlington, no one saw that coming.
Other early oddities:
*The only undefeated teams through three weeks would be the Eagles (who have trailed by 10 points in every game), Bengals and Cardinals (with backup quarterback Drew Stanton).
*In this league where teams are so evenly matched home-field advantage has been minimized, with home teams going a modest 28-20.
*The Cowboys’ DeMarco Murray leads the NFL in both rushing (385 yards) and fumbles (3).
*The Cowboys’ offense has scored more points than the Packers, 49ers, Patriots and Broncos.
*Take away two touchdowns allowed by their offense, and he Cowboys’ defense has allowed only (7th-fewest in the league).
What does it all mean? Again, there is no better, dramatic “reality show” than the NFL
