    Any Dallas fan who complains about The Patriots "Running Up The Score" should be reminded that We are talking about PROFESSIONAL FOOTBALL" .We are not here to teach morals or do We care about Moral Victories..If You don't want the score run up "SCORE MORE POINTS" or try to STOP SOMEONE FROM SCORING".This is the single biggest joke yet in a joke filled season so far.The Patriots are GOOD! Deal with it NFL !

    Running up the score is poor sportsmanship. Pee-wee to NFL it's the same thing.

    If you can't stop our 5th string RB, i put eckel behind Maroney, Morris, Faulk, and Evans, running up the middle. You have no right to complain.

    I had to look at the play by play to confirm, but anyone that gripes about running up the score is a moron.

    We had a first down with 2:00 to play. That means we could have run the clock out -- just barely. But after our first run, Phillips called a time out, which would have given the Cowboys the ball back if they stopped us.

    Phillips essentially said, we still want to play, and Belichick said "ok."

    It was the Cowboys that decided to keep playing, not Belichick.

    You are exactly correct about the time out. They still wanted to play.

    As a Dallas coach once said "it's not our fault you suck."
