There was a time, say 20 years ago, when a visit to Foxboro by the Dallas Cowboys would be big, bigger than a 10-gallon hat and a pair of six-shooters on the hips.
Of course, now, to borrow a phrase, the “what’s left of” America’s Team is just another team in the NFL, where winning a playoff game (just one postseason victory in 15 years) is enough to prompt ecstatic remembrances of Roger Staubach and Bob Lilly.
(The Patriots [team stats] have gone four years without a playoff triumph, so that’s like 15 years around here.)
