The Pats were sloppy last sunday, after playing MNF. The 1985 Bears' only loss that year followed MNF. Dallas is coming off a stressful game themselves. I tried to find historical W-L following a MNF game to no avail. Perhaps someone knows. It stand to reason that a day is lost for prep, rest, etc. Day-to-day schedules (sleep, practice, etc) may have rythmic disruptions. I'm not trying to spoon feed excuses for Dallas or false hope for Pats fans, but I am simply curious if there is any tangible effect the following week. FTR: Wade Phillips is 0-2 on MNF, BB only 5-4.
