Re: Patriots at Cowboys (enjoy the hype thread)
Brace yourselves. Assuming the Pats win this weekend, whereupon all media will insist that Dallas wasn't a legitimate "elite" team anyway, the sickening buildup to this game will pale in comparison to that surrounding the Pats/Colts matchup, which surely will be touted as the game of the century (so far). Look for that lovefest to begin Sunday afternoon at about 4:01 pm.
The one potential benefit of the Pats winning this weekend? The Steelers will probably vault over Dallas into the number 3 spot on all the power rankings.
