The Cowboys shouldn’t necessarily be intimidated by going to play the undefeated Falcons Sunday.
If anything, the Falcons should be worried, given the Cowboys’ history of picking off the perfect.
According to Todd Archer of ESPNDallas.com, the Cowboys have won their last three games against teams which were at least 7-0 at the time.
The current group has been involved in two of those, with Tony Romo leading wins over the 9-0 Colts in 2006 and the 13-0 Saints in 2009.
The other was a 1991 win over the 11-0 Redskins.
Of course, the Cowboys are still reeling from Sunday’s loss to the Giants, making it hard for them to ponder history and whether the Falcons resemble the Saints in terms of what a win could mean.
“I think every game for now is always, ‘We’ve got to win that game,’” DeMarcus Ware said. “We’ve got to find some way to win no matter what because we made so many mistakes in the beginning of the season.
“You’ve got to sort of get over that hump. It’s all about just winning. Winning out. That’s how I feel about the situation.”
If the Cowboys do win, the Falcons can take consolation that those previous three teams the Cowboys handed a first loss to all went on to win the Super Bowl.
