PASSING OFFENSE: D -- Drew Bledsoe had his worst game of the season with just 136 yards and two interceptions. He didn't get much help with a conservative game plan and poor pass protection. He was also sacked four times.
RUSHING OFFENSE: B -- The Cowboys totaled 164 yards on the ground without Julius Jones. Marion Barber had 22 carries for 95 yards. They controlled the ball, but didn't run well enough in the red zone to put more points on the board.
PASS DEFENSE: B -- The Cowboys harassed Matt Hasselbeck for much of the
game, intercepting him twice and limiting him to 121 yards passing through
three quarters. Hasselbeck completed four of four passes for 58 yards on the
final drive. It was also aided by a pass interference penalty on Aaron
RUSH DEFENSE: A -- League-leading rusher Shaun Alexander was held to 61
yards on 21 carries. Credit strong line play up front and linebacker pursuit
from Bradie James, Demarcus Ware and Scott Fujita.
SPECIAL TEAMS: D -- Jose Cortez' missed field goal can partially be
blamed on a high snap. J.P. Ladouceur also had a bad snap on a punt. Tyson
Thompson nearly sparked the Cowboys to victory with a 39-yard kickoff return
in the fourth quarter.
COACHING: C -- The Cowboys played not to lose on offense, and it
backfired as they dropped out of first place in the NFC East. They were
denied their first three-game winning streak since 2003.
