<quoted text>They adjusted the clock after that, so you can stop worrying. After the onside atempt the clock was adjusted to 18 seconds, and there was a 7 second runoff following the overturned Owens' catch, leaving 13 seconds to run the two plays which put Dallas in position to win the game.
It's already been concurred by many in the league that the refs blew the clock on this. It should have gone down to 13 to START. With the 7 second runoff that would have left 6 seconds - not enough time for over-hyped Romo to move his team.

Also, a question... when Lynch was tackled and a 5 yard face mask penalty was called why didn't any fo the refs see the horsecollar tackle and the out of bounds spearing hit on the same play?
Would that have been two 15 yard personal fouls assessed or just one? Bills need to send that play into the league office!
Good questions. I agree that the Bills should question it and the Cowboys player (I forget who it was) should be fined. That was a horsecollar plain and simple.

The Bills were lucky to even be in the game. They performed very poorly the whole game and only scored 3 points with the offense. As for the refs being against the Cowboys...Look at the facts. A clear pass interferance on To on the conversion. TO was clearly pushed out on the catch where they said he was out and what about the spike...WTF are the refs thinking... It's not the Cowboys it's TO, they don't like him and they cal stuff against him.
I'll agree the call on the spike was questionable, but there was absolutely no pass interference on the other play. He wasn't pushed out. Even if it was a slight push, look at all the angles, his second foot never would have come down in bounds anyways!

You are incorrect. The play began at 18 seconds. It only took 5 seconds to make the incomplete pass to owens. That left Romo with 13 seconds. In any case, all Buffalo had to do was to stop a play that has only a 22% success rate (onside kick), and they failed to do so. Quit crying. You would not have even been in that position if your offense could have scored more than 3 points.

Actually that two point conversion play they should have called pass interferance, since the defender was face guarding and the interferance rules are clear about the defender not having his back to the ball when making contact. But I didn't really care because I thought the Cowboys were lucky to even have a chance to win that game and since they did, well how can I complain now :)

You are absolutely wrong, face guarding no longer exists in the rule book, it was changed a few years ago. No call was the right call. Get a new rule book before spouting off about what is a penalty and what isn't.

Just a quick thought. How do you expect to win a game in the NFL, if your OFFENSE produces only 3 points?

I am not "absolutely wrong" yes face guarding is not a term in the rules but he was clearly not playing the ball and the contact restricts the .... just look at (a) so it "could" have been called.

Actions that constitute defensive pass interference include but are not limited to:

(a) Contact by a defender who is not playing the ball and such contact restricts the receiver’s opportunity to make the catch.

(b) Playing through the back of a receiver in an attempt to make a play on the ball.

(c) Grabbing a receiver’s arm(s) in such a manner that restricts his opportunity to catch a pass.

(d) Extending an arm across the body of a receiver thus restricting his ability to catch a pass, regardless of whether the defender is playing the ball.

(e) Cutting off the path of a receiver by making contact with him without playing the ball.

(f) Hooking a receiver in an attempt to get to the ball in such a manner that it causes the receiver’s body to turn prior to the ball arriving.

It was a jump ball, nine time out of ten the refs let the players play on a pass like this and don't throw the flag. Good non call, get over it.

and yet the game will not be televised nationally. only to those who have the Direct TV package or live in local areas. Yeah ... great business move. Face it the Cowboys won fair and square. Both teams played with heart. Neither team gave up. Being a Bills fan, yeah it hurts to see them lose like this but it was a matter of Dallas being the better team in the end.
Actually I believe it is the CBS afternoon national game, local markets will get their local game.

The game will be televised to 90% of the CBS viewers on Sunday AFTERNOON, the afternoon headline game on CBS or Fox has 20% more viewers than the Sunday Night prime time game and 30% more viewers than the Monday night ESPN game, I guess you don't need DirecTV to watch it. You can't watch a football program (NFL All ACCESS on the NFL network or NFL Tonight on ESPN) without this match up being their top story and it will be all week. The NFL knew what it was doing when the Cowboys won. Good business is good $$$$$$$$$$ Why do you guys ever bother to challenge me on any of my football posts? You're always wrong.

One last thing for all you idiots who tried to tell me that Roy Williams didn't commit a hoarse collar tackle, I guess the NFL agrees with me, they fined him $15,000 for it today. I'll repeat myself, why do you morons continue to challenge my superior football knowledge?

I could be wrong but no matter what the play called is, doesn't the team have to exicute it. Coaching is onlly part of the game. The players have to get the play right also. I think there is enough blame to go around. GO BUFFALO!!!
