Don't hold your breath waiting for a Romo return, he will not return to QB until Dak falters badly.

Dak, Cole, Zeke excel, but the Cowboys continue to need a big improvement on pass rush. If that doesn't happen the chances to contend will be diminished.

Excellent come back indeed. I'm not a fan of the Colts and to see them lose a 14 point lead with less than 3 minutes and lose in OT was fantastic.

After their abysmal season last year the coach and GM got new contracts

I turned it off too soon, I guess. I gave up in the 4th period with about 4 - 5 minutes left.

Cleveland needs to win some more so the Bears can move up in the draft rankings. Great loss yesterday to Jacksonville.

There's no hope for the Bears now. Jacksonville was the only chance for the Bears to get their 2nd victory of the year.

That late PI non-call wasn't questionable. Sherman got by with one...

I do not expect Romo to be back, barring injury to Prescott. Not this year, and certainly not after.

But I am a big Romo fan.

Looks like maybe we have something in common...geographically displaced Cowboys fans in hostile territory. You in DC and me in SF.

I've been a Cowboys fan my entire life (born & early years in Texas), and have lived as an adult in: The DC Metro area, San Francisco & attended school in Philly. Heck, now I just have to live in Pittsburgh and Buffalo, and the set is complete.

Maybe he will start making TV commercials? Then daytime TV serials and finally Hollywood? Then after failing at acting, he could join the 17 ex-NFL players doing the before and after game talk.

He's too young, but I see the Sr Golf tour in his future.

Should be interesting to see if Rodgers still "has it" in tonight's game. He's been in a bit of a slump lately.

Not sure what was wrong with the Packers (and Rodgers) for the first 3 quarters tonight, especially against the Bears. Fortunately they got their rears in gear and dominated the fourth quarter.

Sorry to see Hoyer break his arm. Tough break for the Bears, no pun intended.

Yes, they missed a call - Jones deliberately slapping Sherman's helmet at the start of the play. And then reports indicate the NFL spiced in a the start of a different play for the 'highlights' of the game. Not so good.

Sunday night's SEA vs. ARI looks to be a tough fight. Go Hawks!

Bye week for Cowboys gives me withdrawal symptoms, but it will be interesting to see how the Eagles fair as their next up.

What the hell was that? Looked like a high school game. Something is very wrong with Russell Wilson.

It was an ugly first half and I'm glad I went to bed then.

The quality of play in the NFL has deteriorated this year. 25 penalties in the Bills/Dolphins games?

Only caught part of one game yesterday, Pats v. Steelers. Absolutely the worst clock management I've ever seen...
