D -- Quarterback Drew Bledsoe passed for just 110 yards, his lowest output of the season. He also didn't throw a touchdown pass for the first time all year. Dallas won, but Bledsoe could have been much better.
A -- The Cowboys didn't run spectacularly, but they ran often and controlled the clock with 42 carries for 149 yards. Julius Jones rushed for 92 yards on 21 carries.
A -- Detroit's Roy Williams got loose for a few receptions, but he is going to get his catches. Still, the Lions managed only 169 yards through the air. DE Greg Ellis had a sack and forced a fumble. CBs Terence Newman and Aaron Glenn played outstanding pass defense.
A -- The Cowboys never let running back Kevin Jones get untracked. They held the Lions to 57 yards on the ground, their second-stingiest effort of the season.
A -- New-old kicker Billy Cundiff made a team-record 56-yarder in his first game back. P Matt McBriar downed three kicks inside the 20, and the Cowboys didn't give dangerous return man Eddie Drummond any room to run.
B -- In beating the Lions, the Cowboys won their third game in a row for first time since 2003. They accomplished that task despite a sluggish performance, playing the middle game of a three-game stretch in just 11 days.
