Somehow, Week 3 is Cowboys' Strong Suit



    In infancy, there are the Terrible Twos. And in Cowboys’ football, there are the Terrific Threes.

    Can’t explain it any better than how Lyle Lovett was once married to Julia Roberts or how wheels spinning really fast forward appear to be going slowly backward, but after Sunday’s record rally in St. Louis the Cowboys have won their third game of the season 12 seasons in-a-row.

    Different coaches. Way different players. And obviously different opponents. Yet somehow, the same result. We need the guys from Myth Busters to explain, because it's unexplainable.

    In 2002 Dave Campo’s team was walloped in Philadelphia, 44-13. But since then the Cowboys are undefeated in their Week 3, which usually falls on the weekend of Sept. 20-27.
