Cowboys Colts preview
The Dallas Cowboys defied the odds once again as they clinched the NFC East title with a 42-7 win over the AFC South champion Indianapolis Colts.
They improved their record to 11-4, which is a surprise to most NFL fans since they were not expected to be a playoff contender.
Quarterback Tony Romo continued to build himself a strong case for MVP by throwing for 218 yards and four touchdowns on 18-of-20 passing.
He was able to persevere through running back DeMarco Murray being limited with a broken hand. Murray rushed for just 58 yards on 22 carries, but he was able to score a touchdown.
Tight end Jason Witten caught a team-leading seven passes for 90 yards and a touchdown while wide receiver Dez Bryant caught five passes for 73 yards and a touchdown.
For the Colts, quarterback Andrew Luck looked dreadful as he was held to 109 yards and two interceptions on 15-of-22 passing, and he was pulled for Matt Hasselbeck in the third quarter after the Colts fell behind, 35-0.
The running game was also atrocious as the Colts were held to one rushing yard. Wide receiver Hakeem Nicks was the lone bright spot in the receiving corps as he caught nine passes for 72 yards.
