Well I think Poe had a little something to do with it.

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett says the reason Chiefs defensive tackle Dontari Poe sacked Tony Romo twice on Sunday is simple: Rookie center Travis Frederick got beaten.

Its always nice when a coach throws his players under the bus. How about blaming the Coach for putting a rooking in there, or not teaching him how to handle the defense. I also want to blame Romo. For just being Romo.
You know, I watched closely via NFL Rewind and the Dallas O-Line was getting away with some major holding. So if Cowboys fans are complaining about the refs in that game, they should take note of that.
As for the Chiefs rookie O-lineman, Eric Fisher, he had his share of rough moments in the Dallas game, but watching him closely thus far though the pre-season & these first 2 preseason games, he hasn't even come remotely close to holding anybody and needs to get a chance to do more drive blocking in a power running scheme, as Fisher and the rest of the O-Line have been on their heels too much in this shot-gun, hurry-up Offense, that they are running a bit too much.
No! you can't give Poe credit for playing well. He's a CHIEF! If he got sacks a Cowboy must've screwed up. And, of course, the Chiefs didn't beat the Cowboys; the Cowboys beat themselves.
Oh, and the Chiefs would have never beaten the Jaguars if Gabbert wasn't playing with a broken thumb!
It's ridiculous how the media bias in favor of certain teams affects the headlines. EVERY TIME a player gets a sack it's because a blocker got beat or overpowered. How is this "news?"
