Poll:
Now that the Cowboys have won a game, do you think they can go to the playoffs?

Here's a number from the Houston game that is still a problem to the Dallas Cowboys: The final stats say they had eight penalties for 49 yards.

But they were actually called for 16 penalties in this game.

Some are declined, and some are offsetting penalties when Houston had a penalty as well.

But if Houston had a penalty and you didn't, that should count as a penalty though, shouldn't it?

If you didn't hold when they jumped offsides, you move forward; your penalty is the reason you didn't.

And yet it doesn't count. I'm thinking it should.

And the Cowboys had 16 in this game.
