The Following is the 11th and final entry in an 11-part weekly series throughout the summer that will focus on the eleven plays that shaped 2011 for the Dallas Cowboys. Every game, about 130 actual plays happen and over the course of a season that number can exceed 2,000. But, we have selected 11 and will pick one each week and break it down from standpoint of "X's and O's" and see what we can learn looking back. The plays are not ranked, simply presented as the season unfolded. We hope you enjoy.
When the season comes down to one night, you wish there was just one play that stuck in your mind 9 months later. Unfortunately, this scenario has unfolded a few times in the last several years - Week 17 match-ups involving a divisional opponent on the road for all of the marbles - and neither of them turned out particularly well. This 2011 finale was not nearly as bad a trouncing as the 2008 affair in Philadelphia, but in a match-up where it is win or go home, well, the...

A year ago, the Cincinnati Bengals were the odds on favorite to win the Andrew Luck sweepstakes.

After center Kyle Cook saw a foot specialist early in the week, the Bengals brought in Jeff Faine for a visit as insurance for Cook, whose initial prognosis did not look good.

Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton left Thursday's preseason game with an injury to his throwing arm.Fantasy Spin:Dalton was sandwiched by two Colts defenders on the opening drive in the team's final exhibition game. The quarterback didn't need to go to the locker room, however, so this shouldn't be a serious issue.
Tonight our Bengals play their final tune-up for the regular season against the new-look, Luck-ed up Colts.
There won’t be much to see from the starters, so there won’t be much opportunity to see the guys who will take the majority of the snaps against Baltimore in the big Monday Night opener. That’s too bad, because frankly I’m getting a little uneasy about things about...
