Tweet Break: 11-1 Cowboys Find Another Way to Win in Minnesota

Wow.

The Dallas Cowboys 2016 season has been nothing short of incredible. Last night on Thursday Night Football, the Cowboys rolled to their eleventh straight win against the Vikings!

Was it pretty? No. Have we seen Jason Garrett’s team play better this season? Of course. Did Cowboys Nation still take to Twitter to celebrate this monumental victory? YOU BET!! 

As always, here is my post-victory collection of the best of those tweets.

Silver & Blue Swagger

Thomas is a great friend of ours here at Inside The Star, a loyal fan that frequently sweats out games with some fellow writers and I on Twitter. As Jason Witten recovered the onside kick that sealed this win though, Thomas and his exceptionally dressed squad all did the “dab”.

Well done. The Cowboys are 11-1. I’ll never be able to type this enough.

Offense Struggles, Defense Rises to the Occasion

It is important to note once again that this was an ugly win for the Cowboys. Wins like this can be imperative for contending teams though, as this young and resilient squad proved that they can find multiple ways to win – even doing it mostly behind their defense last night!

Against a banged up Vikings’ offensive line, Rod Marinelli’s defensive line came to life a bit, recording hits on Bradford that caused some key incompletions. Even Benson Mayowa, who found himself on the active roster for the first time in three weeks, got around the edge to drag down Sam.

In the secondary, Barry Church‘s return helped this still banged-up unit force some tight window throws, sealing the deal with a stand on this two point conversion – which was backed up five yards after a false start.

As far as bright spots for the Cowboys offense, Dez Bryant‘s eventual game-winning touchdown capped off another efficient night for him. Prescott was able to find him when it mattered, and move the offense without Jason Witten catching a pass for the first time since 2008!

Ezekiel Elliott actually had his third straight game under 100 yards, but like Bryant, he moved the chains with timely plays that continuously wore down an incredibly tough Minnesota defense.

It wasn’t the type of offensive performance that has won games this season for the Cowboys, but it was good enough to win…

11 in a row, what’s next?

The Cowboys can clinch a playoff spot as soon as Sunday, with a Buccaneers loss or tie at the Chargers or a Redskins loss in Arizona to the Cardinals.

As for the next time we’ll see the boys in silver and blue on the field, their December 11th Sunday Night Football meeting with the Giants at MetLife Stadium will give them a chance to wrap up the NFC East title with a win.

Just one more win, and the 4-12 Cowboys of 2015 will be long dead and gone. The 2016 Cowboys will be 12-1, with playoff football to look forward to.

That’s something to tweet to, as the best fans in the world certainly did enough of that last night. Thank you for reading another victory edition of Tweet Break!
