If Jerry Jones was unhappy with the way the Dallas Cowboys had played leading up to Sunday night’s loss to the Atlanta Falcons, he must be irate now. The Cowboys’ offense sputtered once again on its way to a 19-13 loss, lowering their record to 3-5.
After the game, Jones was looking to get into the locker room to likely share a few not-so-nice words with his team. Or maybe he was looking to inspire them with kindness. Whatever the case, he was reportedly shut down.
Jerry Jones just pounded locker room door because no one would let him in. It’s the angriest I’ve seen him all year. #Cowboys @bluestarblog

It could have been a simple misunderstanding, of course, but one would think he would have to have been locked out for more than a few seconds to become that angry. Before the game, it was revealed that Jones said he would have fired himself as GM by now based on some of the decisions he has made. Perhaps the team was doing him a favor.
BEST OF MAXIM
Its 11 am MST on a day after the Atlanta Falcons beat the disoriented Dallas Cowboys to go 8-0 for the first time in their franchise history, and the Falcons still aren’t getting any respect. And I’m not about to give them any respect either. At least not now. Just an “Atta Boy”!
I will acknowledge that Matt Ryan has finally elevated his game to that next level, and those...
Falcons halfback Michael Turner rumbled his way to 102 yards rushing Sunday in a 19-13 win over the Cowboys.Fantasy Spin:Turner has had an up and down season but is still on pace to rush for over 1,000 yards. He's not one of the league's elite backs anymore but Turner is still a serviceable flex or RB2 option for fantasy owners.
What Went Right The defense once again was solid this week. Ware got pressure constantly and made sure to leave Matt Ryan’s face print onto the field before the game was over. Ratliff showed signs of him old self and until his injury, he was walling off the middle to Michael Turner and charging into the pocket consistently. McCray has shown that he may be a legitimate option...
Dallas nose tackle Jay Ratliff suffered an apparent left leg injury late in the first half of Sunday night's game against the Atlanta Falcons.
Ratliff was attempting to put pressure on Falcons linebacker Matt Ryan when he pulled up, favoring his left leg, before falling to his knees.
The Cowboys called timeout to assist Ratliff on the field. He was able to walk off the field...
The last remaining undefeated team in the NFL, the Atlanta Falcons, is looking to complete a perfect first half as they take on the 3-4 Dallas Cowboys.
The Falcons have a large lead in the NFC South, while the Cowboys are attempting to climb back into NFC East race.
Matt Ryan is everyone’s MVP leader so far. Can he keep the magic going against the Cowboys on Sunday night?
To the right side of the Falcons' locker room, in the short corner, there is life.
There is an energy, a cluster of defensive backs each talking over one another. They are an enthusiastic bunch, as players on winning football teams are wont to be, reveling in jokes made funnier via victory. The laughter grows louder with every win.
It's been building for eight weeks.
