No way is our record for 14 games broken..

After our 13th game we had allowed 5,680
On our 14th game against the Giants we had allowed 394 yards.
The 13 game delta between the Cowboys and the Saints is 131 yards

In order for Dallas to take the 14 game record their defense would have to allow the Packers to put up 525 yards on defense.

Rivers, Manning, Brees and Stafford could do it and have done it this season... but Matt Flynn?

Anyone see Matt Flynn putting up 350 yards and Eddie Lacey rushing for 175 yards? I can slide the scale the other way if you like, Matt Flynn 300 and Eddie Lacey 225 yards?
I sadly have to agree with this. If rodgers was playing then I would say this is very possible however with flynn.....not so much. The only game left where I see dallas giving up a lot of yards would be against philly. Although, they had foles number the last time they played.

I fear our record is safe for now

If you add his yardage from Detroit, Denver, and Minnesota he still didn't throw for 500 yards.

No two games this year have added up to 500 yards for Matt Flynn

In 2012 Flynn threw for 480 yards and 6 TD's, that was the game I was referencing

I can't remember who said it, but someone said 'Flynn isn't a starting QB, he played 1 good game and got rich from it'

The way the NFL keeps skewing the game toward offense (and basically not allowing the defense to do ... well, anything), this is a record that could change yearly.
