5-0: Patriots-Cowboys showdown a rarity

Sunday’s showdown between the New England Patriots and Dallas Cowboys marks just the fifth time in NFL history that two teams with 5-0 records or better have faced each other.

Nov. 13, 1921 – Akron Pros (7-0) at Buffalo All-Americans (6-0)
Akron 0, Buffalo 0 – Played at Canisius Field in Buffalo, the All-Americans controlled play for most of the second half. However, four missed field goals by Buffalo and a missed game-winning field goal by Paul Sheeks (http://www.nfl.com/players/paulsheeks/profile?id=SHE159039) of Akron kept the game scoreless.

Nov. 4, 1923 – Canton Bulldogs (5-0) at Chicago Cardinals (5-0)
Canton 7, Chicago 3 – The defending league champion Bulldogs traveled to White Sox Park (aka Comiskey Park) to battle the Cardinals. Chicago controlled the tempo for most of the game and carried a 3-0 lead, courtesy of a 38-yard field goal by Paddy Driscoll (http://www.profootballhof.com/hof/member.jsp?player_id=60), into the fourth quarter. However, the Bulldogs’ attack, highlighted by a 45-yard Lou Smyth (http://www.nfl.com/players/lousmyth/profile?id=SMY264861)-to-Guy Chamberlin (http://www.profootballhof.com/hof/member.jsp?player_id=44) pass play put Canton at the Cardinals 13-yard-line. Early in the fourth quarter, Smyth pounded over the goal line for the winning score. (See program cover, right)

Oct. 28, 1973 – Los Angeles Rams (6-0) at Minnesota Vikings (6-0)
Minnesota 10, Los Angeles 9 – The Vikings defense came up big with two interceptions of John Hadl (http://www.nfl.com/players/johnhadl/profile?id=HAD553720) passes, a key sack late in the game, and blocked a field goal. The lone touchdown drive of the day featured a variety of plays by the Vikings including a double reverse that put Minnesota at the 9-yard-line. From there, Fran Tarkenton (http://www.profootballhof.com/hof/member.jsp?player_id=209) hit running back Chuck Foreman (http://www.nfl.com/players/chuckforeman/profile?id=FOR402704) on a TD reception.

Oct. 24, 2004 – New York Jets (5-0) at New England Patriots (5-0)
New England 13, New York 7 – All the scoring took place in the first half as the Patriots’ winning margin came via a Tom Brady (http://www.nfl.com/players/tombrady/profile?id=BRA371156) 7-yard TD pass to David Patten (http://www.nfl.com/players/davidpatten/profile?id=PAT326165) with five seconds remaining in the half. On the day, Brady completed 20 of 29 passes for 230 yards; David Givens (http://www.nfl.com/players/davidgivens/profile?id=GIV237924) had 5 catches for 107 yards; and Corey Dillon (http://www.nfl.com/players/coreydillon/profile?id=DIL255767) gained 115 yards on 22 carries.

What's with these young 'uns? Don't you know the history between Dallas and Da Burgh? If you really want to know, the Cowboy fans I know(around here there are a lot!), are the worst losers and worst winners I have ever met! One big reason to root against them.... :cope::cope::cope:

Ummm yes I do, BUT the Cowboys play in the NFC and the Patriots are in the AFC (which we are) Now which makes more sense...rooting for a team that could easily take home field advantage in the playoffs...as a Steeler fan I would rather the road to the SB go through Pittsburgh than New England. OR rooting for a team with have a history with and obviously hate...but they could have given us a little help with our long term goal...home field advantage and winnin g the SB????

Please don't pull out this youngster thing with me...I am looking at this year and our goals and I will root for any team that may be able to help us reach them. Sorry if you don't agree, but it is what it is.

Hey, I hate them just as much as the next Steelers fan! My post was more referring to the guy that called me a young un because I was rooting for them in one game that would help us. Now that game is over and I'm ready to get back to my hating ways when it comes to the Cowgirls!
