Cowboys @ Buccaneers: 'Open Thread'

It's mid-December and that means Saturday Night Football! Remember in 2008 when the Baltimore Ravens went into Texas and "stiff-armed" the Dallas Cowboys when they closed-down their old stadium in front of all of their all-time greats? One of the most satisfying wins in Ravens history, which included long back-breaking TD runs by Willis McGahee and LeRon McClain.

Now the Cowboys are apparently commencing their annual late-season swoon to drop out of the playoff race. Losers of two straight games, Dallas hopes to stay with the New York Giants in the race to the NFC East title as they travel to play the disappointing Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Bucs are one of the more under-achieving teams in the NFL this season and are now only hoping to play the role of spoilers for the last three games.

Sit back and enjoy a game that should have virtually no effect on the Ravens and post your comments in this 'Open Thread.' If you're at all like me, you are rooting for "America's Team" to fall flat on their faces just so you can see that sour-puss look on the face of Cowboys owner Jerry Jones. How 'bout them Cowboys!
