Jerry Jones gives 'pat on the back' to Cowboys for saluting flag

On Monday, coach Ben McAdoo lauded the play of Janoris Jenkins and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. It wasn't the fact that they lost, it was the way they played the game on Sunday against the Giants, with too many miscues on offense, a lack of a strong defensive unit and the way the game ended for the Cowboys with the decision made by Terrance Williams on the final play of the game.
It's not only a great opportunity for Dez Bryant to show us again why he is widely considered to be one of the top wideouts in the National Football League, but it's also a great opportunity for rookie running back Ezekiel Elliot to bounce back after that pedestrian Week 1 performance.
Everybody needs to consider the fact that Dak Prescott is still a rookie QB and Cowboys' did not want to risk going for big plays and huge gains with him possibly making a costly mistake.
Despite Jenkins' impressive performance, it may not guarantee him the No. 1 job each and every week.
"Just like everything else, each week we're going to take a look at it and see how we match up". "He goes after the ball like no other receiver does like that, besides Julio [Jones]", Norman said (via the Morning News). Then in their December rematch, the defensive end sacked quarterback Matt Schaub and, with no timeouts left, the clock ran out on a Jaguars victory.
Meanwhile, the Redskins are 4-0 ATS versus a team with a losing record, and 4-1 ATS against the NFC East. Washington is also 2-5 ATS in their last seven games in Week 2, and 5-2 ATS in their last seven games following a straight-up loss. "You play through it and I think he made some nice tackles as the game wore on".
"I think he was feeling his way early", McAdoo said. "He got his feet underneath him as the game wore on", McAdoo said of Apple.
Claim: Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones told his players they were "actors" playing the role of "patriotic super heroes" and therefore had to stand during the playing of the USA national anthem. "Really competed at a higher level as the game wore on".
It's an interesting approach by the Giants, but one that makes sense.
