Well, there's the Cowboys people know. Despite a game in which Dallas won the Intelligence Index battle by more than 11 yards per point, the Cowboys still find a way to make an epic collapse and grab defeat from the jaws of victory. It all came with a slew of poor game management mistakes and small, untimely gaffes that gave the Lions an avenue for the comeback.

Does this mean that Dallas is due for another late-season disappointment? Stat Pack host Adam Dobrowolski looks at what ailed the Cowboys and discusses the chances of the third-ranked team in the Intelligence Index suddeningly becoming of the league's dumbest teams once again.

Also he looks at the mid-season mark for Big D and compares the Cowboys (4-4 with a +44 point margin) to other mid-season .500 teams with a high scoring differential.

Finally, Dobrowolski gives his usual six pack of subjects. This includes what the CHFF Big Board has to say about the Seahawks' O-line and Steelers' pass defense, as well as Week 9's "tricks" and "treats" according to the Intelligence Index.

Onto the fun, only with this week's Stat Pack!
