The Dallas Cowboys fell to 2-3 on Sunday after giving up yet another second half lead, this time to the New England Patriots in Foxboro. The offense had a few bright spots, and the defense, for the most part, looked quite good. But none of this was enough to secure what would have been a huge win for Dallas.
But we guess we can take some solace in the fact that the Cowboys forced the Pats to earn the victory--that’s what Tom Brady believes, anyway. Brady credited the Dallas defense for not giving them much on Sunday, for forcing them to grind out a victory at home.
“I think what they do is make you earn every yard,” Brady said after the game, per ESPN Dallas. “It’s not like there are a bunch of gimme throws out there or gimme routes or gimme calls from the sideline.
“There are a lot of different things and they have a lot of good players that can execute it. Some good linebackers, a line that really rushes no matter how many guys – three guys, five guys – and some guys even cover. It’s a good defense and they really made us earn it.”
Brady finished Sunday 27-of-41 passing for 270 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions. He was sacked thrice.
