Same Old Cowboys, 8-8 here we come

Dwight Freeney injuries knee

San Diego Chargers’ linebacker Dwight Freeney hurt his knee when his leg was caught on the turf at Qualcomm Stadium.

Jerry Jones: Jason Garrett is young, still evolving

We think Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones meant this to be a compliment to his head coach Jason Garrett, but as we know, Jones just has a way of explaining things that always seem to make headlines.
