IRVING, Texas -- With Sunday’s win against the New York Giants, Jason Garrett surpassed Bill Parcells and Wade Phillips for the fourth-most regular-season wins in Dallas Cowboys history with 35. Garrett, who is 35-28 as head coach, is in the final year of his contract, and Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones has repeatedly said he believes Garrett has a bright future with the Cowboys but he is not interested in talking about a contract extension.
IRVING, Texas -- Dallas Cowboys cornerback Brandon Carr played every defensive snap in Sunday’s win against the New York Giants and he did at least a part of it with a hamstring strain. Coach Jason Garrett said Carr tweaked his hamstring, but “we don’t think it’s too, too bad.” Garrett said left tackle Tyron Smith suffered no ill effects from a sprained ankle that kept him out of a day of practice last week. With the Cowboys’ next game coming on ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” against the Washington Redskins, the Cowboys will have an extra day of rest/preparation.
After the Dallas Cowboys' 31-21 victory over the New York Giants on Sunday we present our weekly Upon Further Review. 1. We’re not sure what the grades are for Cowboys left tackle Tyron Smith, if he gets anything more than a C the grader might get reviewed. He allowed a few hurries and committed one holding penalty on Sunday. Smith was met on the sidelines by offensive line coach Bill Callahan after one series and the pair went over hand placements.
IRVING, Texas -- Here's a look at the snap counts played for each of the Dallas Cowboys' defensive players on Sunday: While there has been no grand proclamation, Tyrone Crawford seems to be the starter at the three-technique defensive tackle -- the most important line position in the Cowboys' scheme -- not Henry Melton. Don't forget, Melton was a Pro Bowl player in 2012, but missed the final 13 games of last season with a torn ACL. He signed a one-year deal with a team option for three more years at the end of the season.
