The Cowboys might have escaped with a win Sunday, but did so in impressively ugly fashion.
In a matchup with the two-win Browns -- at home, no less -- Dallas failed to score a single first-half point, surrendered seven sacks, and let a mediocre Cleveland offense recapture the lead with 1:07 remaining in the game.
Prior to Brandon Weeden's 17-yard touchdown strike to Ben Watson, which briefly put the Browns ahead 20-17, the Cowboys were caught with only nine men in the huddle.
To former coach and current NBC analyst Tony Dungy, the sequence of events typified Big D's season.

"They created this problem themselves just not being able to line up."
When asked how the Cowboys could botch such a critical moment, Dungy said simply, "It’s n...

Talk about pressure, Jason Garrett is coaching in the same stadium with the guy who may want his job, Mike Holmgren.

According to ESPN’s Ed Werder, Holmgren only has one preference, and that is the Dallas Cowboys.
He has denied...

As the Cowboys navigate past the 10 game barrier in their season and in to the stretch drive, we now have enough data to begin to learn about this team based on what they do well and more importantly, it seems, what they don't do well at all.
We know that this team has the fewest 10 play drives in the NFL. Of the Cowboys 112 drives, only 11 have lasted 10 plays. That is lower...
ESPN Dallas is reporting that Cowboys halfback Lance Dunbar underwent a minor knee procedure after Sunday's win over Cleveland.Fantasy Spin:This puts his status in question for Thursday's game against Washington. Dunbar isn't really a usable fantasy player anyway, especially with DeMarco Murray slated to return from injury any week now. For now, Felix Jones will handle...

The Cowboys receiver has been great one game and hard to find the next. He created a scene at a mall one year, then trouble with the law the next.
But now he has multiple 100-yard receiving games for the first time, including a career-best...

Cowboys halfback Felix Jones missed practice on Tuesday because of a sore knee.Fantasy Spin:He was originally slated to be the team's starter Thursday against Washington but now his availability is somewhat in question. Lance Dunbar and Phillip Tanner both saw first team reps in practice on Tuesday. They'll probably split carries Thursday if Jones can't play.

Most players have not ye declared for the 2013 NFL Draft, aside from the obvious seniors, yet that never ends the debate and speculation as to which players deserve to be first round draft picks.
