Dallas Cowboys Football: How Long Has It Been?

    We are two, count 'em dos, days away from watching the play a football game. TWO DAYS. 

    I've said many a time this that we really haven't even seen our Cowboys since that fateful January 11th day at all the way back in 2015's infancy. That sounds confusing since we saw the Cowboys play a whole season across the Fall of 2015, but were those our Cowboys?

    Sure, pulled off a miraculous victory over the Giants, but it didn't feel like the team we know and love. That feeling of discontent was magnified exponentially a week later when Romo went down with his first broken collarbone of the season. After that it was a lather, rinse, repeat cycle of misery.

    It's been quite the while since we've seen do battle on the gridiron, so Saturday's contest against the in the famed Coliseum will be more than a breath of fresh air.

    has gotten accustomed to holding that breath though, unfortunately. I wrote last November about how long it'd been since Tony Romo and Dez Bryant hooked up for a touchdown. I'm not saying I can predict the future or anything, although Back To the Future is my favorite movie of all-time, but that following Sunday Romo hit Dez and an X was Thrown Up. So yea… I can predict the future!

    In the same spirit I've broken down how long it's been since particular moments pertinent to the 2016 Dallas Cowboys. Cher once speculated about what she would do if she could turn back time, well I'm better than Cher so today I've done it. Voila!

    Number Of Days It's Been Since _____ 
    344 Dallas Played a Game
    222 Dallas Played a Regular Season Game
    579 Dallas Played a Playoff Game
    249 Dallas Won a Game (any game)
    260 Tony Romo Took a Snap
    264 Tony Romo Threw a TD
    237 Caught a TD
    222 Caught a TD
    579 Started a Game
    617 Orlando Scandrick Had an Interception
    229 Had a Sack
    224 Had Over 100 Yards in a Game (OSU)
    224 Ezekiel Elliott Rushed for a TD (OSU)
    226 Threw a TD (Miss St.)
    258 Dak Prescott Ran For a TD (Miss St.)

    As you can tell, it's been a pretty long time since we saw some cool stuff.

    The likelihood of Romo, Dez, Witten, Scandrick, Lawrence, or Zeke breaking these streaks on Saturday is pretty slim if we're being totally honest. Considering that the Cowboys are in the business (as in they need one), Dak Prescott is going to get some chances to set these numbers to zero in LA.

    Two days!

    Which one of these streaks are you hoping to see fall on Saturday when the Dallas Cowboys take on the Los Angeles Rams? Let us know! Comment below, Email me at, or Tweet to me at @rjochoa!

    I like long walks on the beach, mystery novels, no just kidding those suck. The Dallas Cowboys were put on this earth for us all to love and appreciate. I do that 24/7/365. I also love chicken parmesan. Let's roll. @RJOchoa if you wanna shout!
