We all know that Jerry Jones is in charge of the Dallas Cowboys, but sometimes it's difficult to tell who's second-in-command.
Defensive coordinator Rob Ryan was acting like Dallas' head coach on Friday when he guaranteed a victory over the undefeated Atlanta Falcons. Typically it's up to head coaches -- like Ryan's twin brother Rex Ryan -- to...
