Randy Moss got another touchdown, but Wes Welker got most of the attention after his career day in Dallas Sunday. He scored two TDs and had more than 100 yards receiving.
"It's definitely a part of my game," Welker said of his big-play potential. "I was just able to get a play called and get down there."
"We have so many weapons, so many guys that you can go to, that you can't key in on one person," fellow WR Donte' Stallworth said in a Dallas Morning News story today.
"Tommy's able to spread the ball around and the coaches put us in a good position to be able to make plays."
All week leading up to the game, Cowboys receiver Terrell Owens had a sign posted in his locker that read, in part, "Getcha popcorn ready," implying that he would put on a show for the fans against New England.
But it was the Pats who were munching on the buttery treat after the game, as The Providence Journal points out today. Here's an excerpt from that column:
*"He distinctly said he wasn't going to talk until after the game," Colvin said. "And he told everybody to get their popcorn ready. Well, we wanted to see how it tastes." *
*And how did it taste, Rosey? *
*"It could have used more butter," *Colvin said.
However, the never-shy T.O. predicted after the game that his team will face New England again this season.
"Yeah, I definitely do," Owens said, hinting at a Dallas-New England Super Bowl on Feb. 3 at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale. "Will we play them again? No doubt. No doubt."
The Boston Globe looks closely at the extra help Tom Brady is "receiving" this season.
The popcorn analogies continue in a Boston Herald feature.
In the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, there's plenty of second-guessing about how good the Cowboys are, and lots of accolades for the Patriots.
