Cowboys excited about defense after two games

It's obviously a small sample size, but statistically, the Dallas Cowboys defense is among the top 15 in the NFL. Entering Monday, the Cowboys ranked 13th in yards per game at 316.5 and 12th in points allowed, 21.5 per contest. Had they posted those same averages throughout the entire 2013 season, the Cowboys would've finished fifth in yards allowed and 11th in scoring defense...

A Rare Statement: Thank You Jerry Jones

I remember the hour or two after the Dallas Cowboys had traded for linebacker Rolando McClain. It was a "low risk, maybe a reward?" type of trade, as the Cowboys got McClain, and swapped a sixth-round pick for a seventh-round pick. Not a big deal, and a trade that, in all honesty, many people laughed at.The jokes began about how McClain wouldn't even make it to the...

National media’s confidence in Dallas Cowboys soaring after Week 2

Up and down. Back and forth. Left and right. There’s no telling what direction an NFL team will go from week to week. Just two games into the 2014 season, this fact has already been hammered home. Once again, the league is proving to be a week-by-week proposition, where any team can rise or fall. This makes it tough sometimes to separate the contenders from the pretenders. But...

Murray running the show for Cowboys' offense early

IRVING, Texas (AP) DeMarco Murray reversed field and sprinted around right end for the first down, sliding just before the sideline with the Cowboys running out the clock during their win at Tennessee. The play in the fourth quarter Sunday said a lot about Murray and the Cowboys' sudden fascination with the running game. It was his career-high 27th carry, which means the Cowboys...

Cowboys bounce back with dominating win over Titans

Might the pass-happy Dallas Cowboys be no more? Coach Jason Garrett said as much during the NFL Draft in May when the Cowboys selected guard Zack Martin in the first round, giving them three first-round picks on the offensive line. Executive vice president Stephen Jones said during training camp that the offense would be a run-oriented attack, led by running back DeMarco Murray...

If you thought the first Sunday of the NFL season was crazy, yesterday managed to be even wackier. The Bills are alone atop the AFC East, the Saints are 0-2 after losing to the Browns and the defending champs were smacked in the mouth by the Chargers. To finish the day off the Bears stunned the 49ers with an epic comeback on Sunday Night Football. Did you miss any of it? No worries...

Tony Romo near the end? Buyer beware of Oregon Ducks on offense. Is Marcus Mariote the next bust?

Fool me once, shame on you fool me twice, shame on me. After being tricked one, too many times by offensive players, leaving the Oregon Ducks. It's with extreme caution I watch Marcus Mariota as he dominates the college football stage. Since Mike Bellotti took over the program, in 1995, the Ducks have become an offensive juggernaut.

Dallas Cowboys: Defense manhandles Titans in 26-10 victory

Through two weeks, the Dallas Cowboys’ (1-1) season is playing out very much like The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. They were all Hyde last week in a frustrating, sloppy, ill-played loss to the San Francisco 49ers. But, after a dominating 26-10 victory, it appears that, for at least one week, Dallas has left their Hyde behind. The Titans (1-1), on the other hand, entered...

DeMarco Murray went off on the Titans

The Dallas Cowboys cruised to a 26-10 win over the Titans as running back DeMarco Murray ran the ball 29 times for 167 yards and a touchdown. What was even more impressive was how well Dallas’ defense played. It seems like middle linebacker Rolando McClain is coming into his own and could and up being a great replacement for Sean Lee. var ACE_AR = {Site: '898551'...

A division that is rich in history and is one of the most celebrated in football has taken a skydive from grace.
