Cowboys’ dominant Monday night performance lowers Lions’ playoff chances

The night began with everyone wondering if the Cowboys were taking too big a risk playing their starters.

It ended with the home crowd chanting for a Tony Romo mop-up appearance and everyone from Lions beat writers to ESPN color commentator Jon Gruden recommending that Detroit pull QB Matthew Stafford, lest he take any more punishment in a blowout loss.
