    Cowboys show signs of life vs. Lions in game interim coach couldn't afford to lose
    [​IMG] By Calvin Watkins

    ARLINGTON, Texas -- The Dallas Cowboys' ability to forge a two-game win streak, their first of the season, is partially fueled by interim coach Jason Garrett.

    The new man in charge doesn't dwell on the past. He has no time for it. When Garrett accepted the job from owner Jerry Jones following the firing of Wade Phillips, he didn't want to know why things went bad the first two months of the season.

    It was as if the first two months of the season didn't exist.

    The Cowboys emerged from an ugly beginning to a beautiful 35-19 victory over the Detroit Lions on Sunday afternoon at Cowboys Stadium.

    It wasn't a must-win game -- teams with seven losses in the first 2½ months of a season don't have them -- but if Garrett is going to become the head coach long-term for the Cowboys, he has to win games like this.
