KLTV NFL Analyst Lemuel Stinson sat down with Sports Director Maya Golden to talk Cowboys/Vikings and the final stretch of the regular season.
Maya: This was not exactly the pretty packaged, ribbon on top type of win that we are accustomed to this season...
Lemuel: No but it's a win, Dallas wanted to go in and get that win, and it was a game on the schedule that they were supposed to win.
Maya: If you had to give the Cowboys a grade for yesterday's performance, on offense what would you give them?
Lemuel: I would probably give them about a C+ somewhere off in there...
Maya: On defense?
Lemuel: Defense I would give them probably about a B+
Maya: The rest of the schedule, pretty much all divisional games, coming after this bye what's ahead for them and how do they need to prepare?
Lemuel: They better go and look at some film and really prepare because the Redskins are not going to play around with them, they have a good defense. So the Dallas offense is going to have to pick up. Also, the Redskins offense is playing pretty good. Philadelphia, they lost to my Bears which is a good thing for me and Lovie, but they are going to play pretty good too. Philadelphia and then also you got the Giants that are hanging around. The Giants are 5-2 so they are right behind the Cowboys. So if the Cowboys make any mistakes in that time they might not make the playoffs, but they could make the playoffs.
Maya: Do you see them being able to beat Philly twice or even the Redskins twice?
Lemuel: Well, see you've got to look at Dallas too. Sometimes they play strong in the beginning and then in the end they start fading out. Right now I think that the Redskins are getting stronger and stronger and the Philadelphia Eagles are playing at a strong level and the Giants are playing remarkably well so it's going to be tough for them.
At the pro level, no one believes the Eagles can make a serious run at a Super Bowl title. The Eagles were the first number number one seed in NFL history last week to not to be favored in their first game of the postseason.More >>
Moody Magic, a term coined by the Abilene Christian faithful to describe a supposed mystical aura around Moody Coliseum that gives the Wildcats a winning edge, is something the Stephen F. Austin men's basketball team fell victim to a season ago. Wednesday night, the 'Jacks cast a spell of their own - one of the defensive variety - to make sure their intrastate rivals wouldn't obtain a second-straight win in the series.More >>
