NFL Panic Index 2017, Week 3: The Cowboys don’t look so elite right now

Wednesday, September 20th, 2017

The Cowboys were riding high after Week 1’s win over the hapless Giants. Then they lost to the Broncos in a 42-17 blowout, and it raises a fair question: Is this Cowboys team destined for yet another early exit from the playoffs? It’s become a hallmark of this Dallas team. The Cowboys haven’t made it past the Divisional Round since 1995, and last year’s 13-3 team lost a heartbreaker to the Green Bay Packers in divisional play after earning the top seed in the NFC and a first-round bye. Hopes were high for this team heading into the season. Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott both had stellar rookie seasons, and Dallas boasts the best offensive line in the league. The team made moves this offseason

The Dallas Cowboys’ New World Headquarters Is Game-Changing

Wednesday, September 20th, 2017

“This wasn’t about dressing up the locker room,” says Charlotte Jones Anderson, daughter of Jerry Jones and the EVP and chief brand officer of her father's prized Dallas Cowboys. The “this” she’s referring to is The Star, the newly finished world headquarters of arguably the most famous—and valuable—sports team on the planet. The Jones family reportedly invested more than $1 billion of their own money in the project, which stands, gleaming in the Texas sun, on 91 acres in the Dallas suburb of Frisco, a half-hour drive north from downtown.

Jerry Jones paid a record $140 million for the Dallas Cowboys — the team is now worth $4.8 billion

Tuesday, September 19th, 2017

In 1989, Jerry Jones purchased the Dallas Cowboys for $140 million. The sale marked the first time anybody had ever paid more than $100 million for a sports team and it came just five years after the previous owner, H. R. (Bum) Bright, had purchased the Cowboys for $60 million.

Jerry Jones defends Ezekiel Elliott’s lack of effort by pointing to other Cowboys

Tuesday, September 19th, 2017

Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott has become a lightning rod for criticism after a perceived (actual) lack of effort following a pair of interceptions on Sunday. Owner Jerry Jones has opted not to join in the criticism, at least not specifically. The most glaring incident happened when Broncos cornerback Chris Harris Jr. caught a tipped ball and took it the other way.

Odell Beckham Jr. active for New York Giants against Lions

Monday, September 18th, 2017

Odell Beckham Jr. is active for the New York Giants' game against the Detroit Lions. This will be the first time the three-time Pro Bowl receiver has played since spraining his left ankle in a preseason game on Aug. 21. He missed the season opener last week against Dallas. Beckham has led the Giants in receiving in each of his three seasons. Without him, New York was held to 233 yards in a 19-3 loss to the Cowboys. While Beckham will make his season debut, the Giants will be without middle linebacker B.J. Goodson (lower leg) and cornerback Janoris Jenkins (hand, ankle). The Lions had no changes to their starting lineup. For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP—NFL

Jason Garrett will talk to Ezekiel Elliott for not hustling after interception

Monday, September 18th, 2017

There might be a few reasons to not be the biggest fan of Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott, but what happened Sunday shouldn’t cause people to freak out. Could Elliott have given more effort on an interception by the Denver Broncos? Elliott was running one way when the Broncos picked off Dak Prescott and took it back the other way.

Cowboys’ Jason Garrett to discuss Zeke Elliott’s play on Sunday: ‘it was not up to our standard’

Monday, September 18th, 2017

FRISCO, Texas -- Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett will meet with Ezekiel Elliott to discuss the running back's lack of effort in two plays from Sunday's loss to the Denver Broncos. On Dak Prescott's two interceptions, Elliott did not attempt to track down Broncos cornerbacks Chris Harris Jr. or Aqib Talib. On the Harris interception, which came after Dez Bryant could not hold on to a Prescott pass, television replays showed Elliott standing with his hands on his hips as Harris turned up field. On Talib's 103-yard return to for a touchdown with 53 seconds to play, Elliott dove at a Denver blitzer to protect Prescott but he was not seen in the television replays in the chase. "One of the things

Amfoot – Judge rejects NFL appeal over Elliott case

Monday, September 18th, 2017

- A US judge rejected an appeal by the National Football League seeking to overturn an injunction obtained by Ezekiel Elliott which has allowed the Dallas Cowboys running back to delay his six-game suspension. Elliott has been left free to play ever since obtaining the injunction against his suspension for a domestic violence case. The NFL challenged the injunction in federal court in Texas but saw its request for a stay denied.

NFLPA: No irreparable harm to NFL if Ezekiel Elliott plays during legal battle

Monday, September 18th, 2017

The NFL Players Association says there would be no irreparable harm to the NFL if Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott continues to play while the legal battle over his six-game suspension makes its way through the courts. The NFLPA made its argument through a legal filing Saturday with the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans, saying Elliott "stands to lose nearly half a season in a career that is notoriously short and precarious, and competitive opportunities are irretrievable once lost." The filing is the latest in the back and forth between the NFL and its players' union over the Elliott suspension and its larger impact on league discipline. On Friday, the NFL asked the

Monday Night Football: How to Watch, Live-Stream Lions vs. Giants

Monday, September 18th, 2017

After two Sundays of NFL football, seven teams are undefeated. The Broncos, Ravens, Panthers, Chiefs, Steelers, Raiders and Falcons all turned in impressive wins to move to 2-0 on the season (all right, the Panthers 9-3 barn-burning win against the Bills wasn't that impressive, but a win's a win). The Detroit Lions will have a chance to join the ranks of the early-season elite Monday night as they take on the New York Giants, who looked absolutely putrid in a 19-3 loss to the Cowboys in Week 1.
