Throughout the week, CBS Sports was doing its best to hype the Dallas Baltimore game. A typical comment was that Dallas hadn’t faced a good defense (though Philadelphia had as good a defense, and a better offense). CBS was a font of back handed compliments. Dallas won anyway, and the game was much easier than the PHI or NYG games.
