The New Orleans Saints kept the pressure on the Atlanta Falcons & Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the NFC South with a hard fought win at the Dallas Cowboys. After dominating the first half they had to come from behind for a 30-27 win. This effectively ended any slim hopes that Dallas had of making the playoffs, however they have played well enough of late to suggest that Jason Garrett is worthy of getting the Head Coach position on a permanent basis.
The New York Jets had a much easier time of it beating the disappointing Cincinnati Bengals who only managed 163 yards of total offense. The final score was 26-10 and overall was a fair reflection of the game. The Jets look certainties for the post season and if they can hold off the Patriots and get the No1 seed they will be hard to stop. Cincinnati can look forward to a nice early draft pick and questions need to be asked about the coaching staff as it is hard to fathom how a team with so much quality on paper at least can play so badly.
