First and 10 is RattleandHumSports.com’s Cowboys wrap-up. Consider this an outline of the 10 most important things to come out of the previous game and how it related to the outcome. It’s analysis and opinion of each week’s game that goes beyond the box score. Today it’s First and 10 after the Cowboys’ 24-22 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.
A word of praise for Kyle Orton. Sure, Orton threw the interception that essentially ended the game shortly after the two-minute warning in the fourth quarter. But whatever your expectations were of Orton going into Sunday night he exceeded them. He threw for 358 yards, threw two touchdowns passes and, up until that interception, really didn’t do anything to lose the game for the Cowboys. But this team always seems to find a way to lose these games, and Sunday night was no exception.
