The Dallas Cowboys Pluck the visiting Seahawks 23-13

Newman was one of three Cowboys with an int in the game. Two things I am tired of hearing are how Dallas should have beat the Seahawks by a larger margin and how this game was a revenge game for Dallas. As for Seattle being a weaker opponent, yes they were. Offensively the Seahawks are at the bottom of the NFL and surely weaker than the Rams who Dallas beat soundly. If that is how...

Dallas Cowboys vs Seattle Seahawks Review: Offense

DeMarco might be the offense's savior

There are Sundays every season that come to symbolize the full tapestry of a campaign and rise above all other game as those rare moments to savor. Yesterday's win over the Seattle Seahawks will not be one of those. Rather, if it is remembered at all, it will only serve to strengthen the debates of those that consider the Dallas Cowboys to simply be a middle-of-the-road squad...

Witten loves rookie’s work ethic

IRVING – Pro Bowl tight end Jason Witten is impressed with rookie running back DeMarco Murray’s work ethic. That’s saying a lot since Witten is one of the Cowboys’ hardest workers. “He comes in every day and works his butt off,” Witten said in a conference call Monday with the Dallas media. To illustrate his point, Witten described how Murray responded to his record-setting...

Cowboys RB Felix Jones is not practicing for a second straight day for the Cowboys as he tries to return from a high ankle sprain.
