    EVERYBODY loves a good touchdown celebration - except for the NFL it seems. The No Fun League was trending on social media once again on Saturday, and this time it was because of a fine aimed at four Dallas Cowboys. 5The celebration came after Hendershot's first career rushing touchdownCredit: AP 5The Cowboys tight ends seemed to be celebrating National Tight Ends DayCredit: AP 5Cowboys players typically use the Salvation Army kettle to celebrate on ThanksgivingCredit: Getty Images - Getty Just one day before National Tight End Day, Dalton Schultz, Jake Ferguson, Sean McKeon, and Peyton Hendershot came together to celebrate Hendershot's fourth-quarter touchdown against the New York Giants on Thanksgiving. Schultz, Ferguson, and McKeon all jumped in the oversized Salvation Army kettle, which the Cowboys typically have besides the field for the holiday. They then took turns jumping up, with Hendershot playing a game of whack-a-mole with the ball. A bit of harmless fun, right?

    Getty Jerry Jones may be about to make a costly blunder for his Dallas Cowboys. The Philadelphia Eagles currently have one of the best wide receiver duos in the NFL with A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith, with only the Miami Dolphins and Buffalo Bills being able to make a claim to a better tandem statistically. But, if the Dallas Cowboys land Odell Beckham Jr. as a mid-season free agent pickup, they’ll have some serious competition for the best wideout combo in the NFC East. The New York Giants are also in the mix to bring OBJ back to the Meadowlands, with the Bills rounding out the competition. Obviously there’s a lot of downside for the Eagles if the superstar receiver lands in their division, especially as they’re battling the Cowboys and Giants for the NFC East title. However, there’s also the possibility to watch a division rival make a massive blunder. Multiple league sources have told Heavy NFL insider Matt Lombardo that they think any Odell Beckham Jr. signing is incredibly risky, with significant downside at this point...
    Odell Beckham Jr. begins his three-city free agency tour on Thursday with a visit to his former team, the New York Giants, ahead of expected meetings with the Buffalo Bills and Dallas Cowboys. Beckham, who has remained a free agent since suffering a knee injury while winning a Super Bowl with the Rams in February, has been cleared to return to the field, which is why he's only now meeting with teams 13 weeks into the NFL season. The Giants have confirmed Thursday's meeting to DailyMail.com.  The tour also comes after the 30-year-old was kicked off a Los Angeles-bound flight from Miami after officials said he failed to respond to requests to buckle his seatbelt and appeared to be unconscious. Police were called by concerned flight attendants on Sunday after Odell Beckham Jr was reportedly 'coming in and out of consciousness' Beckham, pictured at the NBA game between the Washington Wizards and the Miami Heat, has been expected to soon sign for a new team for the remainder of the season RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next ...
    The Dallas Cowboys have been in hot pursuit of Odell Beckham Jr. but their latest roster move is quite interesting in how it could relate to OBJ. One thing that is without question, the Dallas Cowboys want to sign Odell Beckham Jr. The franchise at virtually every turn has taken available opportunities to express interest in the free-agent receiver. Now, one of their latest roster moves could be connected to OBJ, though perhaps not in the most obvious manner. On Tuesday, the Cowboys waived veteran defensive end Tarell Basham, who had played just 33 snaps for Dallas this season after an injury early in the year and then returning a couple of weeks ago. The #Cowboys are waiving DE Tarell Basham, per source. Dallas had a surplus at the position. A pass rusher on waivers. — Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) November 29, 2022 Now, some might look at this as clearing up a roster spot for Odell Beckham Jr. And in part, that might be some of the case. However, it does not mean that Dallas is about to sign...
    The Philadelphia Eagles have been dominating the league this season, and they’re looking more and more likely to clinch the NFC East. The Philadelphia Eagles were the only undefeated team in the NFL this season until the Washington Commanders broke the streak and defeated them in Week 10. They’ve yet to lose a game since, putting them at an incredible 10-1 record with just six weeks left of the regular season. According to Andrew Siciliano of NFL Network, the Eagles could clinch a playoff berth in the upcoming Week 13 matchup.

In the final stretch of the season, the Eagles will face the Cowboys once and the New York Giants twice, both division competitors, so the gap is guaranteed to either get wider or smaller.

The Cowboys 28-20 victory on Fox averaged 42 million viewers, according to Nielsen, surpassing the 41.55 million average for the December 3, 1990, Monday night game between the Giants and San Francisco 49ers on ABC.

    Dallas Cowboys linebacker Micah Parsons got past New York Giants left tackle Andrew Thomas to get two sacks, and he trolled him on Twitter. One of the three Thanksgiving games this year was a battle between NFC East rivals in the Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants. The winner of the game would receive sole possession of second place in the division. While the story of the game was “which team would impress free agent wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.,” there was also a story to follow on Twitter. After the Cowboys 28-20 win, Cowboys stud linebacker Micah Parsons took a shot at Giants starting left tackle Andrew Thomas. Parsons was able to record two sacks on the day at the expense of Thomas.

    Let’s just say that free agent wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. was watching the Thanksgiving game between the New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys. The Thanksgiving game between the New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys carried not just NFC East implications, but potentially Odell Beckham Jr. implications as well. Both teams were listed as finalists for Beckham’s services, and that he would schedule meetings after the holiday game. As for the game, the Cowboys overcame a 13-7 deficit in the first half to defeat the Giants 28-20. The recruitments from Dallas players were brought up during the FOX broadcast, and CeeDee Lamb was attempting one-handed catches, seemingly imitating Beckham.

    These statistics show that the Dallas Cowboys’ Dak Prescott vs. Cooper Rush debate was a complete waste of time. The Dallas Cowboys‘ 2022 season got off to a disastrous start after quarterback Dak Prescott suffered a fractured right thumb. That forced the Cowboys to start backup Cooper Rush instead of looking for outside help, and he did just enough to help the team win the next four of their five games. Then, Prescott returned to face the Detroit Lions in Week 7, and the offense is running on all cylinders. Remember when Prescott was out injured, there was debate that Rush should still start for the Cowboys? Well, these latest statistics, courtesy of Bob Sturm of The Athletic, show just how much better the offense has been with Prescott starting over Rush.

    The Minnesota Vikings may have made a critical error in judgment during their 40-3 loss to the Cowboys on Sunday, and it had nothing to do with the play on the field. Minnesota got clobbered by the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday afternoon, making way for a host of ‘overrated’ headlines on Monday morning. Yet, the final scoreline arguably wasn’t the biggest misfire on behalf of the Vikings franchise. Per several photos on Twitter — and written about in a story by the New York Post — Minnesota may want to give their social media team a talking to. In a salute to service members moment, a Vikings fan appeared to trick the organization into showcasing who they thought was a service member and fan of the team on the scoreboard. The only problem?

    The Minnesota Vikings were trolled mercilessly by rival fanbases after getting crushed 40-3 by the Dallas Cowboys. The Minnesota Vikings were tied with the Philadelphia Eagles for having the best record in the entire NFL at 8-1. They had the chance to keep track of the Eagles, who won 17-16 earlier in the day against the Indianapolis Colts. But, they had a tough test facing the Dallas Cowboys, who were coming off an overtime loss to the Green Bay Packers the week prior. Well, the Vikings were on the football field at U.S. Bank Stadium on Sunday, but they sure played like they were absent, as the Cowboys crushed them by the score of 40-3. Things got so bad, that CBS cut away from this game to the Cincinnati Bengals-Pittsburgh Steelers game in the second half.

    Dallas Cowboys fans compared Noah Brown’s catch vs. the Minnesota Vikings to Dez Bryant’s non-catch in the 2014 NFC Divisional Round. The Dallas Cowboys lost to the Green Bay Packers back in Week 10, and they totally redeemed themselves the week prior when they took on the 8-1 Minnesota Vikings. The Cowboys dominated the Vikings from the start, entering halftime with a 23-3 lead, and they continued to pile on. In the second half, the Cowboys were able to extend their lead to 37-3 on Ezekiel Elliott’s second one-yard touchdown run of the game. What set up that score was a 35-yard catch from wide receiver Noah Brown, which was under scrutiny as to whether it should be a catch or not.

    The Odell Beckham Jr. sweepstakes are on, and Jay Glazer revealed the two likely front-runners expected to meet with him. Odell Beckham Jr. won’t sign with a team until November is nearly wrapped-up according to reports on Sunday morning, but with a clearer timeline comes further news on what teams are closing in on acquiring his services. According to Fox’s Jay Glazer, two teams already have visits scheduled with one of the biggest mid-season free agents in recent history: The New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys: “They’re going to be battling after that [Thanksgiving] game as well for the services of Odell Beckham Jr. Both teams are planning to bring him in for a visit, again, that week or two after Thanksgiving,” Glazer reported.

    The Dallas Cowboys are emerging from their bye week with a key game against the Green Bay Packers. They should see a big opportunity. In many of their battles, the Green Bay Packers and Dallas Cowboys fought for conference and league titles. This week, they’re fighting for different objectives. For Green Bay, it’s the fight to remain relevant. At 3-6 and losers of five straight, the Packers are barely alive. They likely to need to win at least six of their final eight games to have any realistic playoff hopes. For Dallas, the Cowboys are 6-2 and trying to chase down the unbeaten Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC East. If nothing else, Mike McCarthy’s team wants to remain the top wild card, giving it a matchup with whoever comes out of the woeful NFC South champ. In most years, Dallas is overrated and underwhelming. This year, America’s Team has been America’s Little Engine That Could. Picked by most experts to be a middling .500 team with little hope of making a serious move, the Cowboys have been buoyed by tremendous...
    The Dallas Cowboys are linked to free agent wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., and star edge rusher Micah Parsons offered his pitch to him. The NFL is one week past the Nov. 1 trade deadline. That means teams looking to make improvements to their roster will have to rely on free agency. For those teams that missed out on getting a wide receiver, they are in luck, as Odell Beckham Jr. is available. The issue is, it will be a crowded, contentious battle amongst other teams to try and sign him. Recently, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and head coach Mike McCarthy have spoken highly of Beckham. Notably, Jones said during his weekly spot on 105.35 The Fan, ” the Cowboys star on the helmet when he puts it on could look pretty good.” There is now a new Cowboys trying to recruit Beckham to Dallas, and that is linebacker Micah Parsons. In a tweet, Parsons said, “man OBJ talk to me,” and, “let’s do this s***.” Man obj talk to me !! @obj let’s do this shit!!! ???????? https://t.co/7x5pLHKtWn —...
    Getty Images Ezekiel Elliott of the Dallas Cowboys. Ezekiel Elliott faces an uncertain future beyond this year with the Dallas Cowboys and some believe that he could have a hard time finding a job if the team decides to cut ties with him. Fox Sports talking head Skip Bayless is a vocal Cowboys supporter but was so encouraged by what he saw from Tony Pollard in his first start that he doesn’t feel Elliott’s services will be needed. “Tony Pollard is special. He’s criminally underutilized. He’s now stuck as the backup running back — the clear No. 2 — to Ezekiel Elliott, who is a favorite, like a son, to Jerry Jones. He overpaid him and will not swallow his pride and let go of the fact that Zeke to this day is the highest-paid running back in Pro Football,” Bayless said on “Undisputed.” “He earned it for the first three years, then he got paid for what he had done past tense. His production just kept going down, down, down over the next three years.” Elliott missed...
    Jerry Jones signaled a big move could be coming before the trade deadline. Even though the Cowboys didn’t make a move before then, they still could. The Dallas Cowboys did not make a move at the trade deadline after Jerry Jones made inciteful comments indicating that if there were a move that would get them to a Super Bowl win, he would. For weeks leading up to the deadline, Jones repeatedly made reference to the addition of Deion Sanders in the 1995 season — which got the Cowboys to Super Bowl XXX — indicating a similar move could be coming. The Cowboys would win XXX, making it their third title of the decade. So reasonably, fans were hoping a big splash was incoming, especially on the offensive side. The Cowboys are one of the bottom-five teams in receiving yards per game, and now that Dak Prescott is healthy, backfilling the Amari Cooper loss of the offseason seemed reasonable to expect. Brandin Cooks, playing in the state with the Texans, was available, but the trade deadline came and went without him...
    The Eagles are undefeated, but the Cowboys could be the one to notch one in the loss column for them this year. The Philadelphia Eagles won on Thursday Night Football against the Houston Texans and improved to 8-0, their first such start in franchise history. At present, the Eagles are the definitive favorite out of the weaker conference, and they appear head-and-shoulders above of their postseason competition. But is that real, or optical illusion? And if illusionary, who could finally notch an L for them? It could be illusion. Before the season, the Eagles were determined to have one of the easiest schedules of the 32 teams in the NFL. This year, they have two wins against above-.500 teams: The Vikings (a very convincing, 24-7 win) and the Cowboys, who at the time were without Dak Prescott. The current cumulative record of their opponents is 25-36, a winning percentage  of .409. Now, the Eagles deserve some credit. They have beat up on these teams and have the league’s second-best scoring differential (11.3). Plus, in the NFL, any team can win...
    “I’m being very careful here because I’m getting real close to a fine. It shows how much I love them to dress up as them," said Jones to Sports Illustrated about his costume. "How much I respect their decision-making." However, the NFL confirmed to the Daily Mail on Wednesday that Jones would not face any discipline over the stunt. It would not be the first time Jones was disciplined by the league. In 2008, the NFL fined him $25,000 for publicly criticizing referee Ed Hochuli. Chambers meanwhile locked down her Instagram account after the criticism.

But it’s not for lack of talent. When Jerry Jones purchased the team, he took over the role of GM shortly thereafter. But despite the criticism that’s come from Jones running all of football operations on his own, he’s had success in the draft. We are ranking the five best Dallas Cowboys draft picks of the last decade.Honorable Mention: Jaylon Smith (2016)The Cowboys have had so many strong draft picks over the last decade that it was worth adding a small honorable mention section. The first player to note is Jaylon Smith, linebacker out of Notre Dame. During the 2015-16 college season, Smith racked up defensive hardware, winning the prestigious Butkus Award for the best collegiate linebacker. He could’ve gone in the first five picks, but he tore his ACL playing what was ultimately a meaningless Fiesta Bowl game against Ohio State....
    Jerry Jones may have stumbled into the most expensive Halloween costume of the year by mocking NFL officials on Saturday. The billionaire Cowboys owner was pictured on Instagram dressed as a blind NFL referee with a striped shirt, whistle, and a guide cane. 'Oh yeah, I had the cane and everything,' Jones told Sports Illustrated. 'And I used it on some people, too.' The billionaire Cowboys owner was pictured on Instagram dressed as a blind NFL referee with a striped shirt, whistle, and a guide cane Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has a net worth of about $16 billion, according to Forbes While the outfit didn't draw public criticism, it could result in a fine from the NFL, which has famously drawn a line when it comes to mocking officials.

    Forty minutes after the Chicago Bears’ 20-point loss Sunday afternoon, quarterback Justin Fields came to his postgame news conference at AT&T Stadium expressing optimism. “I think we’re growing, getting better each and every week as an offense,” Fields said. “I’m just proud of the guys and the way they fought. We were down early but they didn’t waiver. We kept the same mentality and just chipped away. I thought, as a whole, we played well.” Fields wasn’t wrong. He played well Sunday, albeit in a 49-29 beatdown by the Dallas Cowboys. The Bears offense had a solid afternoon, too. Fields was correct in pointing out that the Bears’ 29 points were the most scored against the Cowboys this season. Their 371 total yards were also the most given up by Dallas over the first eight weeks. Fields threw for two touchdowns and ran for another, the first time in his career he has accounted for three TDs in the same game. His 73.9 completion percentage was the highest in his 18 career starts. His 120.0 passer rating was a career...
    Jerry Jones is talking a big game in advance of the NFL trade deadline. Is he for real, or just blowing smoke? We’ll find out in a matter of hours. The Dallas Cowboys might not need to make a trade. That is, if they’re content with another playoff appearance that falls short of an NFC Championship. If they want to go all the way, it might be necessary to make a splash. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones knows that. Dallas sits at 6-2 through eight weeks of the season, two games behind the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC East and tied with the New York Giants for second place in the division. They’ve survived a multi-week Dak Prescott injury with Cooper Rush under center. They are holding teams to the third-fewest points and are fourth in points differential. They’ve also survived a preseason injury to the offensive line and, despite some rough stats in average pocket time, have been able to come away with wins. If they want to win when it matters most, though, the trade deadline will be important. Here...
    Getty Bears safety Eddie Jackson had some strong words after the team's Week 8 loss to the Cowboys. Eddie Jackson is frustrated, by his own admission. The All-Pro safety is in his sixth year with the Chicago Bears, and just one of those seasons was a winning one (in 2018, when the team went 12-4). After the Bears’ 49-29 Week 8 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, the Bears fell to 3-5 on the season, and Jackson got candid about what he thought about the team’s performance, particularly on defense. Jackson notched his fourth interception of the year when he hauled in a throw from Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott with 40 seconds remaining in the second quarter. Jackson’s is now tied for the league lead in interceptions with the Buffalo Bills‘ Jordan Poyer and Tariq Woolen of the Seattle Seahawks. The Bears safety tied his career-best with 11 combined tackles (seven solo) against the Cowboys, also a team-high, but on defense, Chicago allowed Prescott and the offense to put up 442 total yards, also letting them score touchdowns on...
    10 thoughts after the Chicago Bears showed the emotional fallout that arrives with a thud when playing four days after trading away the team’s highest-paid player. The Dallas Cowboys got off to a fast start against a Bears defense that had played well of late and rolled to a 49-29 victory before 93,767 fans on Sunday at AT&T Stadium. 1. I totally understand trading Robert Quinn. I don’t think anyone will say general manager Ryan Poles made a bad decision sending the veteran pass rusher to the Philadelphia Eagles for a fourth-round draft pick. Some folks around the league said it was interesting the Eagles got the Bears to pay down the contract this season, essentially sending $7 million in cash with Quinn to Philadelphia. But the Bears got something for a player who wasn’t in their plans for 2023, and it’s not like they’ll have a shortage of salary-cap space moving forward. Poles almost foretold what was coming, though, when he discussed the difficulty he had in making the move, understanding how it would ripple through a young locker...
    Of the many stats that showed the inability of the Chicago Bears defense to stop the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday at AT&T Stadium, here’s one that didn’t make the game book. In the visitors locker room after the Cowboys’ 49-29 victory, Bears linebacker Roquan Smith used the word “embarrassing” three times and “unacceptable” three times, with one “inexcusable” and one “frustrating” mixed in. Safety Eddie Jackson added to that count. “That’s what it is — it’s embarrassing,” Jackson said. “The offense put up (almost) 30 points. It’s like, what more can you really expect?” On an afternoon when the Bears offense showed continued signs of growth, the defense was nearly powerless from the start to stop quarterback Dak Prescott and running back Tony Pollard. The Cowboys got in the end zone on their first four drives and 6 of 9 overall before the final kneel-down. They punted twice, and Jackson intercepted Prescott on the other drive, one of the few big plays from the defense. The Cowboys converted 9 of 11 third downs, with Bears coach Matt Eberflus saying the...
    Chicago Bears running back David Montgomery had little interest in a deep dive into his third-quarter fumble Sunday. “I dropped the ball,” Montgomery said inside a glum visitor’s locker room at AT&T Stadium. Quarterback Justin Fields was similarly matter-of-fact in describing his reaction once the football was on the turf, then in the possession of Dallas Cowboys linebacker Micah Parsons. Fields, during a split-second concentration lapse, hurdled Parsons rather than touching him — which allowed the Cowboys star to get back to his feet and rumble 36 yards for a pivotal touchdown. “That’s my fault for just hopping over him,” Fields said. “I should have tagged him. But I can’t tell you the last time I made a tackle. I just have to be (more) aware in that situation.” Parsons admitted he initially didn’t know what to do until he heard teammates urging him to get up and go. “Coach has been hounding on me about my superpower and just running to the ball regardless of if you make the play or don’t,” Parsons said. “You just never know what...
    Coming off an upset of the New England Patriots on “Monday Night Football,” the 3-4 Chicago Bears have another road test on a short week, facing the 5-2 Dallas Cowboys on Sunday at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Here’s what you need to know before kickoff (noon, Fox-32). The Bears are where they should be When Tom Brady said at the beginning of the month that there’s a lot of “bad football from what I watch,” he probably wasn’t envisioning his Tampa Bay Buccaneers being square in the middle of that discussion near the midpoint of the season. The Buccaneers, who lost to the Baltimore Ravens 27-22 at home Thursday night, were one of 15 teams entering Week 8 at or within one game of .500, a large grouping of mediocrity that includes the Chicago Bears (3-4), Green Bay Packers (3-4) and both participants in Super Bowl LVI — the Los Angeles Rams (3-3) and Cincinnati Bengals (4-3). It’s not an unusually high number of teams huddled around .500 after seven weeks. The average at this juncture over the last...

    NBA icon LeBron James isn't supporting the Dallas Cowboys anymore, revealing he stopped cheering for them years ago due to the team's lack of support of national anthem protests. James had been seen supporting his hometown team - the Cleveland Browns - which led to many wondering if he still had love for the Cowboys. That no longer seems to be the case. On an Instagram live session with lifelong friend and business partner Maverick Carter, he said he was disappointed with the team telling players they could lose their spot on the team if they kneeled during the Star-Spangled Banner alongside Colin Kaepernick.

    LeBron James revealed that he no longer supports the Dallas Cowboys over the team's owner's stance on kneeling during the national anthem. James confirmed he was no longer a fan of the team on an Instagram live Thursday night, saying he viewed it as a question of "freedom of speech." "There were just a lot of things that were going on during when guys were kneeling, and guys were having freedom of speech. They wanted to do it in a very peaceful manner. A lot of people in their front office and a lot of people that ran the organization were like, ‘If you do that around here, then you will never play for this franchise again.' And I just didn’t think that was appropriate so," James said.

    The Chicago Bears don’t have an easy follow-up Sunday to their upset of the New England Patriots. The Dallas Cowboys are 5-2 and have held opponents to just 14.9 points per game, second best in the NFL. As kickoff approaches at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, here’s our snapshot look at the game. 1. Pressing question How will the Bears formulate a plan to slow Cowboys linebacker Micah Parsons? Less than a week after Patriots edge rusher Matthew Judon terrorized the Bears with 2½ sacks, two tackles for a loss and three quarterback hits, the offense will take a step up in class facing a tenacious Cowboys defense led by Parsons. Parsons has eight of the Cowboys’ NFL-high 29 sacks and has been the ultimate chess piece for defensive coordinator Dan Quinn. “It’s just his flexibility,” Bears offensive coordinator Luke Getsy said. “The guy literally lines up all over the place. There are not many interior linebackers in the history of the game who can rush the passer the way this guy can. … He’s amazing. And the challenge of...
    After a resounding 33-14 blowout of the New England Patriots on Monday night, the Chicago Bears head back on the road to face the 5-2 Dallas Cowboys on Sunday at AT&T Stadium. It will be a daunting task to pull off back-to-back upsets as big road underdogs. But the Bears should see Sunday’s game as a golden opportunity to inject surprising relevance back into their season, particularly with six of their final nine games at home. (Can you say, “In the hunt”?) In the lead-up to Sunday’s game, here are 12 eye-catching facts and figures. 181 Rushing yards per game by the Bears through seven games, best in the NFL. The New York Giants rank second at 173.4, while the Cleveland Browns lead the AFC at 163.6. The Bears rushed for 243 yards against the Patriots, the third time this season they have topped 200. 2,974 Rushing yards by the 1984 Bears, a single-season franchise record. Walter Payton led the way with 1,684 yards, the second-highest total of his career. This year’s Bears are on pace to rush for 2,896...
    The blockbuster trade that sent former Dallas Cowboys star Amari Cooper to the Cleveland Browns seems to have backfired for Cleveland more than Dallas.  Amari Cooper came into his own as a Dallas Cowboy, which is why the Cowboys sought to keep him. In 2020, Cooper signed a five-year, $100 million extension, but by 2022, Cooper and the Cowboys no longer made financial sense. The Cowboys traded Cooper and his costly contract to the Cleveland Browns for two fifth-round picks and a swap of sixth-round picks in the 2022 NFL Draft. The picks resulted in offensive lineman Matt Waletzko and linebacker Devin Harper for Dallas, with Cleveland taking wide receiver Mike Woods. Cowboys Get 2022 5th Round Pick 2022 Fifth Round Pick 2022 6th Round Pick (swap) Browns Get Amari Cooper 2022 6th Round PIck (swap) In 2022, Cooper has proven that he’s still worth the money: he just averaged 24.67 yards per catch with three receptions for 74 yards in a narrow 23-20 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 7. Cooper also had back-to-back games with exactly 101...
    Sounds like Dak Prescott wanted an opponent that would allow him to get back in a groove in his return from injury. The Lions could do just that. There’s something to be said about challenging yourself to do hard things, but when the easy option is right there, why not give that a go? As Dallas Cowboys quareterback Dak Prescott comes back from injury, it seems like he was looking for an easy game to get back in a groove and find his footing again. According to a report from ESPN’s Ed Werder, Prescott specifically chose the Detroit Lions to return against after missing the last 5 games due to injury. As Werder points out, he’s performed well against Detroit. Prescott is 3-0 against them with eight touchdowns and no interceptions across three games. He has a QBR of 126.2 vs Detroit. That has to be some extra motivation for the 1-4 Lions to hear that a recently-injured quarterback wants to get his first reps back in a game against you. It’s almost as if Dak is viewing this as...
    It was a rough night for Dr. Jill Biden as she returned home to a not-so warm welcome.  The first lady was in Pennsylvania Sunday evening for a match-up between her home football team, the Philadelphia Eagles, and the Dallas Cowboys.  Dr. Biden, who appeared on the field to promote the Cancer Moonshot Initiative, received heavy push back from the crowd at the game, according to social media posts and videos.  In one video, the large crowd can be heard inside the stadium booing as the first lady takes the field.  One woman yells out 'let's go Brandon,' a common phrase used by those who are against President Biden.  Dr. Jill Biden waved to Eagles fans in the stands Sunday evening during the game against the Dallas Cowboys in Pennsylvania  Dr. Biden appeared alongside cancer survivors who had benefitted from the Cancer Moonshot Initiative, a program that funds research for groundbreaking medical research FLOTUS held hands with two of cancer survivors and Eagles fans who thanked the program and Dr. Biden's work with the initiative Dr. Biden posed for photos...
    Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo outdid himself once again with an exact prediction of the Bills vs Chiefs game. Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo has proven time and time again that he knows a thing or two about football. Of course, he was one of the most beloved quarterbacks in Dallas for roughly a decade. Now during retirement, he’s testing his skill at predicting final scores and is doing a flawless job. During the first quarter of the Buffalo Bills vs Kansas City Chiefs matchup, with a 0-0 score, Romo predicted the game would end 24-20. “This is going to be a 24-20 type of game.” -Tony Romo pic.twitter.com/uvRfw8cVsl — FLAMING HOT TAKES ???? (@TheyAlreadyKnew) October 16, 2022 In the broadcast, he stated, “This is going to be a 24-20 type of game.” How is such an exact prediction possible?

After playing for 12 seasons and executing himself extremely well, there’s no surprise that he can watch the beginning of a game and pick out what...
    The Jalen Hurts and the Philadelphia Eagles stayed undefeated by humbling the Cowboys and Cooper Rush on Sunday Night Football. The Eagles are 6-0. And they don’t look like they’ll be slowing down anytime soon. On Sunday Night Football they sent the Cowboys hurtling back to earth after their surprising 4-1 start without Dak Prescott. Jalen Hurts and company jumped out to a 20-0 lead in the first half. The Eagles defense intercepted Cooper Rush three times and could have had more. The Cowboys quarterback completed just 47.3 percent of his passes. Even though Dallas tried to make it close late, Philadelphia easily pulled back out of range to win 26-17 and make sure the rest of the NFL took notice.Best memes and tweets after the Eagles beat the Cowboyscrank it up @Eagles ???? pic.twitter.com/Vg0qwz2zyz — FOX Sports: NFL (@NFLonFOX) October 17, 2022 Philly SIX(ers) ????#FlyEaglesFly @Eagles pic.twitter.com/zamqqhFZ48 — NFL Network (@nflnetwork) October 17, 2022 ????

    Getty Cowboys QBs Cooper Rush, Dak Prescott It’ll be Cooper Rush and not Dak Prescott under center for the Dallas Cowboys in Week 6. The final injury report confirmed the worst kept secret in football. Not to worry, Nick Sirianni and his coaching staff had been planning for this scenario. The Philadelphia Eagles scouted Rush and dissected the game tape from his previous four starts. They don’t anticipate being blindsided by anything as the Cowboys look for a fifth straight win with their backup quarterback. “We’ll study the crap out of those games and have a plan for it, and I know we already do have a plan for it. But he’s doing a nice job,” Sirianni told reporters. “Yeah, I have to give credit to Cooper Rush, too, right. He’s going out there and he’s executing and he’s putting them in a position to help them win. So, a lot of respect there, but you know, like I said, we do have more tape on him than the Rams did or than the Giants did.” Dak Prescott...
    Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has dismissed the notion that he and Commanders owner Dan Snyder have any issues after it was reported that Snyder had said he possessed 'dirt' on Jones. A lengthy ESPN report published Thursday detailed how Snyder instructed his law firms to hire private investigators to look into Jones, as well as other owners. It was also reported in the article that Snyder told a confidant that he has a 'file' on Jones. However, the Cowboys owner didn't seem too troubled Friday when asked about the reporting.  'Anything in that was news to me,' Jones said on Dallas radio station 105.3 The Fan. 'I don't have those kinds of problems.' 'I've got a long relationship with Dan,' Jones continued. 'It's certainly a competitive one on the field and one that is a part of the NFL.' Jerry Jones did not seem troubled by the reporting of his and Dan Snyder's relationship When Snyder bought the Washington team in 1999, Jones had owned Cowboys for a decade When Snyder bought the Washington team in 1999, Jones had owned the Cowboys...

    Getty Matthew Stafford gets pressured on October 9, 2022. This was not the repetitive scene the Los Angeles Rams clearly had in mind involving their lead star of their offensive machine Matthew Stafford. The 6-foot-3 Texas gunslinger not so much getting out-dueled three times already in 2022, but dropping back then being dropped to the ground…21 times through five games. And the latest high pressure situation involving the Super Bowl 56 winner witnessed the Dallas Cowboys snatching five sacks as the Rams fell 22-10 on Sunday, October 9. But it’s not the number of times Stafford is getting planted to the ground that’s most startling. One stat revealed what happened to Stafford nearly 50% of the time in the loss to the Cowboys. New Season High for Stafford & Rams Made The Rams front line, this time dealing with Micah Parsons and former NFC West Super Bowl winning coordinator Dan Quinn, surrendered this season high: 45.8%. That number represents the number of times the Cowboys brought pressure to Stafford and the Rams. “That’s a...
    Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has refused to dismiss Dak Prescott's chances of starting on Sunday vs. the Rams, despite him being unable to properly grip the ball. Jones shed light on Dak Prescott's rapid recovery and notwithstanding his inability to adequately hold the football, did not anoint Cooper Rush as this week's starter. Prescott had surgery on his right thumb just 22 days ago and has continued to improve at a rate which has surprised many, as his Cowboys continue to win.  Jerry Jones was rather inflammatory when speaking about the Cowboys QB situation Tuesday RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next PICTURED: NFL and Premier League chiefs meet in London to...

    Cooper Rush has done a quality job of keeping the Cowboys on track during Dak Prescott’s absence. What should Dallas do with Rush once Dak returns? Plenty of Cowboys fans thought their season might take a precipitous downturn once they lost Dak Prescott to injury. Fortunately for everyone in Dallas, Cooper Rush stepped in and did a quality job as the team’s quarterback in Prescott’s absence. Now that Dak’s return is just a week away, it’s reasonable to consider what the higher-ups in Dallas should do with their backup quarterback. No, there’s zero chance that Rush is going to supplant Prescott as the team’s starter no matter what he did during his multi-week cameo. Prescott may not be the perfect quarterback, but he’s the unquestioned face of the franchise in Dallas. That doesn’t mean Rush doesn’t have what’s required to be an NFL starter. On the contrary, it’s easy to envision a scenario where another team falls in love with his film and believes Rush can give their offense an immediate upgrade. The Cowboys are going to receive trade calls...
    Saquon Barkley jogged over to Sterling Shepard as the Giants’ wide receiver was being carted off the field in Monday’s fourth quarter loss to the Dallas Cowboys. The look Shepard gave him told Barkley the news on his left knee was likely as bad as he feared. “I’ve been in that situation. Everyone’s around you when they do the test [on your knee],” Barkley said. “So I kinda just tried to get a sense and read what happened. He just gave me a look of disappointment. “I’ve been through this process,” Barkley added. “So I’m definitely gonna be there to help if it is that. But also [I’ll] go to sleep, say a prayer and hope for the best. You never know.” Coach Brian Daboll confirmed “it didn’t look good on what I saw.” Shepard rehabbed from last December’s torn left Achilles to be ready for the Giants’ Week 1 win in Tennessee. He even caught a 65-yard touchdown pass in that 21-20 win. But he suffered a cruel fate Monday, dropping to the MetLife Stadium turf in agony with...
    Getty Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman appears on a red carpet. The Dallas Cowboys are set up for a major NFC East clash with the New York Giants, but one former QB is generating even more buzz with his comments. Dallas and New York are two of the most storied franchises in the NFL, with the Giants winning four Super Bowls in their history and the Cowboys winning five. A key cog in three of those Dallas titles was Troy Aikman. Aikman has spent his post-football career in color commentary, but his latest off-the-cuff words are drawing ire from Giants fans. In an interview with the Dallas Morning News, the six-time Pro Bowler expressed his thoughts on New York’s recent issues. “I’ve seen a team that’s pretty fortunate to be 2-0,” Aikman said. “Defensively — I don’t want to say they’re like the Cowboys, because I do believe the Cowboys overall are a far better team than what I’ve seen of the Giants. Offensively, they’re just struggling. I think the offensive line’s a work in progress —...
    Saquon Barkley was a Daniel Jones overthrow away from roasting the Cowboys’ Micah Parsons in man coverage for a 75-yard touchdown pass last October in Arlington, Texas. Instead, the ball sailed incomplete over the running back’s slant route, Barkley inadvertently stepped on the ankle of Cowboys corner Jourdan Lewis and the Giants’ 2021 season spiraled into disarray. Barkley and Parsons are friends. They both played at Penn State. They hang out. Barkley claims he never trash-talked Parsons about what should have happened on that play. “No, I don’t think that conversation came up,” Barkley said with a smirk Thursday. “I kind of tried to put that game behind me.” But the Giants have it on tape: proof they have an answer to Parsons. That’s significant because Parsons is the main man standing between the Giants and their first 3-0 start since 2009 on Monday Night Football at MetLife Stadium. “He’s a problem,” Giants coach Brian Daboll said of Parsons. “He’s a dynamic football player. He has rare pass-rush ability. We’re going to have to have a good plan for him....
