Whatever you’re doing Sunday afternoon, you may want to make sure you’re watching at least the end of the Dallas Cowboys–San Diego Chargers matchup. Win or lose, it has been an exciting, down-to-the-wire game every time the Bolts have played this season.
In Week 1, the Houston Texans scored 24 unanswered points in the second half, ending the game with a last-second field goal to beat the Chargers 31-28. In their next contest, Phillip Rivers led the offense on a 51-yard drive down the field to set up a game-winning field goal with seven seconds left to beat the Philadelphia Eagles 33-30.
Last Sunday, it was the Chargers’ turn to play victim again versus the Tennessee Titans. Down 17-13 with 2:05 remaining in the game, the Titans’ marched 94 yards to the end zone, finishing with a Jake Locker to Justin Hunter 34-yard TD pass with 15 seconds left on the clock.
The Cowboys haven’t experienced quite so much drama, but did come out on top in a chaotic, turnover-ridden game with the New York Giants and lost a tough nail-biter to the Kansas City Chiefs. This is going to be a fun matchup to watch. It’s Rivers against Tony Romo — something weird has to happen. Not usually known for protecting the ball, each QB has just one interception this season. I think they’re both due for an erratic game.
However you feel about Rivers and Romo, you have to admit they’re a lot of fun to watch because anything can happen. Both guys can look like an All-Pro one minute and a rookie the next. Both can move the ball very well, and both are prone to mistakes during crunch time. If we get a competitive game going into the fourth quarter, there’s a good possibility something that drops your jaw is going to happen.
