There is so much about the Dallas Cowboys' win over the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday that proves they arrived as the NFL's surprise team this season, something we can now officially say.
The Cowboys went to the most difficult building in the league to play a game in as a road team, and they physically whupped the most physical team in the NFL while imposing their will as a run-heavy offense against the league's best rush defense statistically.
It's hard to believe, but the Cowboys are officially a very good football team.
Nothing defined Sunday's win more than the way the Cowboys responded to adversity after giving up a special teams touchdown early in the game to fall into a 10-0 hole. With the 12th Man roaring loudly, the Cowboys then proceeded to answer with an 80-yard touchdown drive.
It was as if the Cowboys all collectively said to Seattle, "OK, that was your shot? Here's ours," and the Seahawks never recovered after that.
For lack of better words, it was an awesome thing to watch from a team that has been the laughing stock of the league for quite some time now. That time has gone, and the Cowboys have arrived. Enjoy the ride, folks.
