Extremely obscure NFL question.

The question is a bit vague, but looking for the best answer to a trivia game.

What 3 games did Dallas lose solely because of 6 or more penalties?

Again, the "solely" might be a bit subjective, but that's the question. I've looked through some archives, etc but can't find anything that leads me to this answer. So, any help?

Thanks. BTW, I must have missed a meeting at some point. What's the go-to site for obscure facts such as this?

They've probably lost far more than three games where they had six penalties.

Never mind, I think I'm onto it.

I meant to say, name 3, not THE 3. Sorry. Looks like 9 penalties involving TD against Jax.

Thanks though

OK, I need one more, this is harder to find than I thought. I included last week's game against Jax and the NE game from Nov '03. (6 and 10 penalties, respectively). So I need one more. Anyone?
