That was one of the burning questions to emerge from Sunday’s 23-13 win over Seattle after Marshawn Lynch rushed for 135 yards and a TD on 23 carries.
Through the first six games of the season, Dallas sported the league’s stingiest run defense, allowing just 69.7 yards per game. But things started falling apart last week when Philadelphia’s LeSean McCoy shredded the Cowboys for 185 yards and two TDs on 30 carries, the most yards allowed to a single runner by Dallas in more than a decade.

Jason Witten is already in elite company in terms of his production as a tight end, but there’s a good chance--a very good chance--that as of next Sunday, he will become the third most prolific tight end in the history of the game with respect to receptions.
Witten needs just two catches to pass Ozzie Newsome on the all-time receptions list for tight ends. After that, only Shannon...
For the first time since 2006, the Baltimore Ravens have swept the Pittsburgh Steelers. After a beatdown in week one, week nine proved to be a very different game. The Ravens trailed late in the fourth quarter and put the game on Joe Flacco’s back. Flacco did his best Marshawn Lynch and “put da team on his back”. After a series of drops by Ravens’ wide receivers, Flacco finally...
