Miles Austin and Tony Fiammetta have returned to practice for the Dallas Cowboys, and the club hopes having those guys back lifts the passing and running attacks.

The Dallas Cowboys running game has slowed down in the past couple of weeks, after a four-game span of seemingly running at will, and we’re inclined to think that the absence of fullback Tony Fiammetta had something to do with the downswing.

New York Giants @ Dallas
The Giants fell to the Packers while Dallas once again stumbled in the desert.
No need to waste much time here. In the last eight regular season games these two have played going back to 2007, they have combined for an average of 57 points – 28.5 each. So it’s a pretty safe bet to say that neither team will have much luck shutting the other one...
