The Dallas Cowboys made a pretty loud statement yesterday in whipping the Philadelphia Eagles, 34-14, and advanced to the next round, and will take on the Vikings at the Metrodome next Sunday.
It was Dallas' first postseason win since 1996, and I must admit I was pulling for Philly on Saturday. Not only because I don't like the Cowboys, but they have been playing some unreal defense lately. And also, the Vikings have beaten Green Bay twice this year, and they would have played the Packers-Cardinals winner had the Eagles got the win.
I was actually glad to see the Jets win in Cincinnati yesterday. The Bengals looked simply awful, as they seemed determined to destroy themselves, with dumb penalties and missed field goals. The Jets were simply the better team on Saturday.
But I was glad to see them shove it back in the face of that idiot Francesa, who on WFAN all but implied the Jets had no business being in the playoffs because their last two wins were somehow "illegitimate" in his eyes. (He kept calling them a 7-7 team in "real" games in 2009.)
Eat it, Fatso.
