A lot of truly terrible holding by the Boys that went unnoticed by the refs. Romo often had plenty of time to scramble around and make a huge throw, but usually it was because Vickerson or Wolf or Ayers were being totally manhandled. I hate b****ing about holding, but it was just frustrating to me that on our second or third offensive play, the shot to DT for like a 40 yard gain got called back for holding when Manning got rid of the ball in just under 2 seconds. Then on the opposite side Romo could hold the ball for 8 seconds and you could clearly see several blue shirts being tugged.

I know Cowboys fans were also b****ing about the officiating, but come on!

Nail biter of a game. Shoot outs are always kind of fun, but they're awful if you care about the losing team. Thank you Peyton for being so good.

Please Mr. Woodyard, be healthy and come back soon. We need you and Champ.

Also - Omar Bloden does not look very good.

They failed though because half the crowd were Broncos fans.

Broncos fans have always traveled well. I think the difference now is we are more visible because most everyone wears ORANGE now. Before it was white, blue, some orange and any combination. Now we look like a bunch of elk hunters.

Also, there are certainly more people excited about the Broncos since we got Manning. Add in 4-0 going into the game I bet even some of the dallas fans switched teams before the game!

I tend to agree that the orange really helps us stand out more than the dark blue did.

A team puts up 48 points on the Broncos and still loses. Scary.

As for the game, the "our defense sucks" crowd needs to simmer down. It's a shoot out. It was all about the offenses yesterday. Take a breath and engage in a calm enhancing activity.

! So Chris, that was the prescription before the game. "Look, Romo always looks like Manning so just assume you will be giving up 500 passing yards and just hope we have the ball at the end of the game so we can place it in Manning's hands!"

Yeah, no sweat.

And Simms mentioned that the Bronco fans are starting to travel like the Steelers and Packers fans. I have been going to Bronco away games for 20 plus years (at least one a year, live in Detroit, so I get to games close to me, been to Denver twice) and I have always felt we had good showings. I will be in Indy in two weeks, wearing my orange. GO BRONCOS

If you want to see a big away game with tons of Broncos fans, go to Mile High West or Qualcomm in San Diego. Transplants and Marine/Navy base within 35 minutes so it is one hell of a time.

My thoughts on this game:

- Dallas is legit. They should win their division and make the playoffs.

- Great win for Denver. They needed to face some adversity. They did and overcame it.

- Von Miller changes this game dramatically. Romo had a ton of time and Von would have changed that dynamic.

- This is the first game we really needed Champ.

- The Cowboys scored 48 points, recovered a fumble and intercepted Manning, and still couldn't win.

I completely and utterly lost my **** at that game, when the game winner went over I sank back into the seat and laughed manically for a few minutes.

I've now seen us play live twice.

The game yesterday and the Bears game two years back when we won in OT.

I'd say I've done pretty well!

The sun glare was hard to even watch. I can only imagine what the players had to deal with. Remember when Bowlen was pushing for retractable roof?

my two buddies and i ended up making it to the game. we bought two seats for $200 a piece (upper corner, pretty good view) and a party pass for the third. i'm sure we could've scalped them for cheaper but i couldn't hold out any longer and wanted to get in before kick off to see the stadium. it was worth whatever we paid for such an entertaining game and broncos were out in full force. i had no idea we traveled so well. we had some great fans around us as well, just one jerk. the couple next to us gave us their two seats at the end of the third so my buddy could sit with us. they said it meant more to us since we traveled from nc. they were awesome cowboy fans. most entertaining game pro game i've ever been to.

The Cowboys should win that division. They should win 3 of their next 4 (vs. Redskins, @ Eagles, vs. Vikings). The Redskins will probably lose their next 4 clean (@Cowboys, vs. Bears, @Broncos, vs. Chargers). The Giants could lose their next 5, @Bears, Vikings, @Eagles, Raiders, Packers. The Eagles could challenge, they have Tampa Bay next, and then they host the Cowboys and Giants back to back before going to Oakland and then Green Bay.

It will all really come down to the Eagles vs Cowboys games.

1. The winning FG.

2. Fox's head shot right after the winning FG. About half orange and they're all screaming.

Demaryius Thomas told Vic Lombardi that he didn't even see the ball on his crazy catch on the last drive, due to the sun.

Apparently, the Cowboys open up both ends of the stadium for party decks. Cowboys players know about it, and use it as a home-field advantage.
