Jason Garrett or whoever actually ran play-action multiple times this game. And the TD by Dez, where Romo rolled right and tossed it back, was shocking simply based on the fact that the play design called for a roll out. I'd also like to add that the almost TD by Jason Witten was another example of what happens when the play-calling actually takes advantage of a situation when Muraay is running well... When was the last time you saw this offense actually attempt to attack the seams. And that TD by Miles, was another example of play-action and using Miles according to his talents.
If anybody thinks the problems on this offense are primarily because of talent, they are, IMO, dead wrong.

I thought the playcalling was much better as well. Red could have totally panicked again but sort of stayed the course AND ran some effective plays.
The route combos generally were great vs the coverage & pressure. I think they could have taken some shots vs the 5 DL front vs running into it but thats a minor gripe.
The Eagles also called a good game offensively.
