    Other than Pittsburgh in 2012, the last time the Cowboys were home underdogs against an AFC team was in 2006 against Peyton Manning and the 9-0 Indianapolis Colts.

    I want to know the last time we were underdogs at home by more than 7 points like we are this week.

    With or without Romo as the starter?

    The answer is never! The biggest home underdog the Cowboys have been with Romo at QB was against Philadelphia in 2011 (+2.5 pt). Crazy, huh?

    Anyone know what it was in 2007 when the Pats came to town? They were undefeated and scoring tons... We were actually favored then?

    Well, tried to look it up and I'm no gambler but I think it's saying we were 5 point underdogs that time.

    All of Vegas must have been drunk if they favored Dallas, NE hadn't even been trailing in the second half yet.

    Ahh I totally overlooked that game. My mistake! So the Cowboys have been home underdogs twice against AFC teams.

    I know Kevin Burnett had 1 INT, but I forget who had the other...

    Setting the line is more than just figuring out which team is going to win or who is the better team. It is about how which team the betters are going to choose to put their money on. Plus it wasn't as if Dallas was terrible at that time. Both teams were 5-0 entering that game and Dallas was playing at home.

    If we don't play the soft parts of our pass defense better then we will find things difficult

    I think he is 2-2 with only 1 visit to Dallas, which was a loss. He won his first 2 and lost has last 2.

    And I'm pretty sure Peyton Manning is responsible for Orlando Scandrick and Kevin Burnett's only pick sixes of their careers...
