Jerry Jones finally had a reason to gloat and then added insult to the Giants’ injuries after Sunday night's 36-31 whooping over his New York rival, accusing Big Blue of faking injuries to slow the Cowboys hurry-up offense. "It was so obvious it was funny," the Cowboys owner said after his team beat the Giants for the first time inside his billion dollar playground — AT&T Stadium. Jones was likely referring to Cullen Jenkins, who briefly went down midway through the second quarter, but returned just plays later. Not that it helped; the drive ended with a Jason Witten 15-yard TD catch. On back-to-back plays the Giants lost linebacker Dan Connor to a burner and Jenkins to an apparent shoulder injury, but the Cowboys thought there was some gamesmanship involved. "I thought us experts on football were the only ones who could see that," the Cowboys owner and general manager said with a wink. "No, it was so obvious it was funny. It wasn't humorous because we really wanted the advantage and knew we could get it if we could get the ball snapped." The crowd booed at New York's lame tactic, but no penalties were called. Coach Jason Garrett had a conversation with referee Tony Corrente during the break in action. Last week the NFL sent a memo to the 32 teams about "faking injuries," and a team would be subject to disciplinary action even if no penalties were called in the game. Connor, who suffered similar injuries last year for the Cowboys, did not return to the game. Jenkins jogged off the field and quickly returned. The Cowboys ended the drive with a 15-yard touchdown pass from Tony Romo to Jason Witten for a 13-3 lead. "I thought we got them moving a lot and got them pretty tired during that stretch," Romo said. "They obviously had a bunch of injuries in that stretch. Tough break, I know. Seemed to come back pretty good after that though."
