    Credit where credit is due

    For the first time in quite a while this defense came through when it mattered most. Any Pats fan has to be happy to see that in a game where Brady and the offense struggled, turning the ball over four times and losing time of possession pretty handily the defense came in with stop after stop. The bigger the moment, the better they got. Brady will get much credit from the media for the 4th quarter comeback- and he should but this is a big win for the Pats proving they are more than just a team that can score.

    Agreed.

    These are character building games, I'm totally sastified that Brady and the O struggled pretty much throughout yet we still take a W from one of the most talented teams in the league.

    I think the D will only continue getting better.

    Amen, Brother! I love these dirty, scratch-it-out wins against good solid teams. It gives the team great confidence in their ability to out-physical any other team and builds the kind of character that augurs well for December and January. Easy long-ball passing oriented games do not test a team's character. Loved this win!

    Yeah that was awesome.  The Pats shut everyone up after the media kept going on about how they were the worst defense in the leauge.

    D was great.  I'm getting the feeling we are starting (I'm only saying STARTING) to solve these Ravens/Ryan type defenses.  Needs more work, but getting there. Great win.

    this is really great. i like the way that the three big bodies up front were really pushing back the pocket. as they get healthier, they will be better.

    If I have any complaint about the running game it was that we didn't see enough of it. BJGE's toe gets a week off now.

    Re: Credit where credit is due

    I'll be honest, I was pretty frustrated with this defense for stretches of this game. There were some drives where Dallas just moved the ball all the way to our 10 yard line.

    But the defense really stepped up today. It was obviously better than it has been all year. The stats reflect that too.

    Dallas was 4 of 12 on third downs. 1 of 3 in the red zone. Most importantly, they only scored 16 points.

    We fared very well against a pretty darn good Dallas offense, and it's not like Romo handed us the game on stupid interceptions. We stopped them.

    I'm feeling great about this defense going into the bye week.

    D had a great game today.

    They gave the O a chance to win it and held when they needed to. Lets hope they can keep it up

    Yeah they showed last week they could run too by running out the game. Just another way to win, passing, defense , running they are showing an ability to do what needs to be done. I can't think of a better way to go into the bye. The offense and defense have to feel pretty good about how they ended this game.

    DMC's play has been extremely poor this year.  Hope he turns it around.

    D was spectacular against a well rested high power offense. D won us that game! 4 turnovers and yet they only allowed 16 points. The D has been improving steadily since the oakland game, great to see!

    D was formidable. O made many mistakes.

    Two weeks in a row of bonehead plays by Hernandez.

    I think the D line gets huge props today. They put on pressure, got some sacks, stuffed the run.  They did good today. DB's had some probs but thank goodness the D line put on some pressure otherwise the DB's would have had a worse day.

    yes, the defense came through all game when it counted. hats off to the defense.

    if our offense would have executed better before the last two minutes it would have been a rout.

    I loved what Haynesworth brought to this game early (he just blew up blocking sequences). The defense played very tough. It was refreshing to see them win a game like this, when Mayo comes back we should get better baring any more injuries. They need to get Price involved or someone who can stretch things out.

    I didn't even post for the last hour. The D looked great and they are definitely tired of hearing about how terrible they supposedly are. If the jets defense is so great why don't they win. I'll take mediocre D that wins games over some D with big names that loses games (see Jets).

    Yep, I think Ryan showed us a defense that could not commit to stopping the run(dbacks everywhere as BB said in his prresser) I think Bjge and Ridley should have had 30 carries in this one. It would have limited the turnovers at the very least.

    Benny was ripping off big gains all game till his last one.

    still work to be done, but they're making progress. I think Haynesworth still has a long ways to go.  I want him 100% healthy by playoff time...
