The Cowboys did pretty well for a bye week. Though a miraculous loss for either Washington in Houston or Philadelphia in San Francisco would’ve been sweet, fans have to be happy about the Seahawks' "hope they paid for dinner first" embarrassment of the Giants at home. At this point of the season, the 'Boys are sitting at the top of the NFC East going into what amounts to another week off in Nashville.
After dropping the Loser Bowl to the Dolphins by three, the Titans may as well shoot the moon and go for draft picks. If they go 0-16, maybe they can pick up Troy Smith to fill the gap on the bench between Vince Young and LenDale White.
Speaking of bench riders, Bill Parcells has to be the only person in the world who thinks Terrell Owens will be anywhere near the field on Sunday instead of taking an extended vacation until the game he actually cares about in Philadelphia.
The Eagles face the suck-prone Packers next Sunday, so don’t expect them to drop. Dallas will need a victory in Philly on Oct. 8 to stay on top. If they manage a win, we may delay the inevitable T.O. meltdown for several weeks. If Brian Dawkins and Sheldon Brown end up being Drew Bledsoe's favorite receivers, however, we’ll probably see a remake of The China Syndrome sooner than we think.
