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.
