was the play of the defense. This broken defense that came into the game with injuries in the double digits and held the bengals to one TD. I don't care how many dropped passes they had, how many bad play calls, coaching decisions, or whatever excuses you want to make. This defense came out onto the field minus everyone it seemed, guys were going down left and right, Safeties, CB's, LB's, our defense took hit after hit. But they lined back up and kept going. They gashed us for a big play there was no one standing around pointing fingers saying your fault. They just lined back up and kept going. the line may have been getting held, but it didn't stop them from coming every play. The CB's may have been playing off by 15 yards but it didn't keep them from coming up each time trying to make a play. I don't care how sloppy they played, how bad the coverage was, how bad the play calling was, how hard it was for them to get 12 guys on the field. don't care. What I'm commending is the fight. a fight this team has rarely shown in the last 12 years. You may hate Jason Garrett's mantra, but the next stepped up every time. They fought and fought and in the 4th quarter when we needed that stop, when we had to get the ball back, Anthony "almost" Spencer came busting through to get the sack. The game ball for this game goes to the defense. They fought tooth and nail with a team that marched up and down the field on them, but in the second half when plays needed to be made, and the Bengals needed to be stopped it was the defense stepping up to the plate and making the stop.
