Tune in Sunday at 4:00 PM ET as the Dallas Cowboys take on the Denver Broncos. Scott Johnson will be liveblogging for your enjoyment.
It's been a long time since the ‘Boys have won a playoff game. It's been even longer since they have beaten the Broncos. It was (U.S.) Thanksgiving 2005. The 8-2 Denver Broncos came into Dallas to face the 7-3 Dallas Cowboys. The hard fought game found itself in over time, tied 21 to 21, when the Broncos were victorious in overtime after a Jason Elam FG, winning 24-21. The last time Dallas beat the Broncos date back to September 1995, but as we all know, the Cowboys did a lot of things in 1995...
Now in 2009, Denver is 3-0, Dallas is 2-1. The Broncos have a relentless running game with Correll Buckhalter, LaMont Jordan, and Knowshon Moreno. The Cowboys could be without Marion Barber and Felix Jones today (As of October 4th, 2009 12:00PM EST, Barber is listed as probable, Jones is listed as questionable). Barber, Jones and Tashard Choice have accumulated a league leading 581 rushing yards, and the Broncos are close behind with 484.

@tictoc1010 What's your score prediction?
@benkeetle T. Romo - 735 yds, 4 TD's, 85.2 rating / K. Orton - 663 yds, 3 TD's, 91.2 rating. Going to be a good one!
@john_mullen20 They had to do something after that embarrassing loss against the Lions last week. Zorn is that much safer.
Dallas' Tashard Choice should expect a lot of carries today. He's been explosive ever since he gained attention last year, so I'm expecting some big things from him.
@Michael Becker, a Folk field goal?
INJURY REPORT: DENVER - B. Stokley (thigh) is active.
INJURY REPORT: DENVER - P. Hillis (head) is active.
Is there an espn.com/toronto yet? I know they have Dallas.
Alright the Chiefs / Giants game is over, time to broadcast the Cowboys game.
I've never been a fan of the phrase "New York Football Giants"
This is going to be a great game, your communication is both welcomed and appreciated. Oh by the way, only comments approved by me will appear in the liveblog.
@bryan.benally Broncos should be 2-1 right now. But I believe this game is the true test of the Broncos.
15:00 - DAL receives, M. Austin returns it 24 yards
14:56 - M. Barber with a 1 yard rush up the middle.
Holding against Denver, which makes it a first down for DAL
So ball on Dallas' 29, 1st and 10, 13:49 in the 1st quarter
13:45 -Romo with a short pass to M. Barber for a gain of 1.
13:20 - Barber with another run, and he picks up a first down. A 9 yard run.
Barber's quad looks fine.
TIMEOUT - Denver. 12:38 in the 1st quarter.
