You don't need excuses when you win. I'd be happy to ride 18 offensive points/game plus two scores on defense and special teams all the way to the Superbowl if I can get it. That ring won't be any less shiny. Only in Dallas does the way in which you win a must-win game convincingly on the road come under scrutiny. "Yes, you put out that fire, but now you're out of water! Did you even stop to think of that, Mr. Wasteful?" Sheesh.
