Broncos-Cowboys was the most satisfying game of the season, and not just because it was the sort of record-breaking, no-defense, aerial shootout the NFL seems to be moving toward. No matter what your opinion of Tony Romo coming in, it was confirmed. A win for the Broncos, perhaps a moral victory for the Cowboys, but… » 10/07/13 9:36am 10/07/13 9:36am
