Tuesday Trivia: Winning Big
The Cowboys’ 44-7 win over Buffalo was impressive on many levels. The team scored at least 40 points for the first time since 2008, and the Cowboys had their largest margin of victory since beating Arizona 48-7 in an otherwise dreadful 2000 season.
Trivia question #1: The Cowboys had one other game between 2000 and 2011 in which Dallas scored at least 40 points and won the game by more than 30 points. Who was the Cowboys’ opponent, and during which season did this occur.
In their history, the Cowboys have won a total of 19 games in which they have scored at least 40 and outscored their opponent by 30. The Cowboys have managed to do this only seven times since 1980.
This leads us to trivia question #2. The Cowboys accomplished this feat four times in a single season. In fact, Dallas did this three times during a four-week period. During which season did this occur?
