D Stands For Defense

By  | 

IRVING, Texas (AP) - Brad Johnson's aim was off and the boo
birds were roaring at Texas Stadium. Somehow, the Dallas Cowboys
pulled out of their midseason slump anyway.
Johnson made up for several missed chances at touchdowns by
throwing one to newcomer Roy Williams at the end of a drive
sustained by four defensive penalties, and the much-maligned Dallas
defense made it hold up for a 13-9 victory over the Tampa Bay
Buccaneers on Sunday.
The Cowboys (5-3) gained only 173 yards, but with coach Wade
Phillips taking a "more active" role in his defense, they put the
clamps on Jeff Garcia and the Bucs (5-3). Tampa Bay got two
first-quarter field goals and another in the third quarter, but
that was it.
