Tyrone Crawford flailed his arms in frustration after chasing Eli Manning only to see the Giants quarterback throw a harmless interception last week. The Dallas defensive tackle has to come up with a new way after every game to describe life without a sack, and the Cowboys have so few as a team. ''They're going to have to start coming,'' said defensive end Jeremy Mincey, who also doesn't have a sack but is tied with Crawford for the team lead in quarterback pressures with 17. I know we'll click.'' Crawford is tired of having to face defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli in the first meeting each week without a sack in the previous game.
A shoving match breaks out in a section of the MetLife Stadium stands. While security officers hustle to the scene, a beyond state-of-the-art surveillance system is recording every detail. MetLife Stadium previously won a security award and recently was nominated for another one for the system, which cost close to $1 million. Praise has come from the NFL for implementing a program that the league wants expanded to every team's home.
Just when Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy gets his game back on track, here comes the NFL's best run defense. McCoy, coming off his finest game of the season a 149-yard effort in a 27-0 win over the New York Giants, faces an Arizona Cardinals' defense that has allowed an average of just 72 yards rushing per game when the Eagles visit Arizona on Sunday. ''I'm sure they're going to try to take the run away,'' McCoy said. ''What's so impressive about that defense is the way they utilize players.
Rookie receiver Jarvis Landry says the NFL's not much different from the Southeastern Conference, and his rapid progress with the Miami Dolphins suggests he might be right. Landry's ascent is especially impressive because receiver was the Dolphins' deepest position in training camp. ''I'm not satisfied,'' Landry said. He enters Sunday's game at Jacksonville ranked second on the team to Mike Wallace with 22 catches for 232 yards, and scored his first career touchdown in Game 5 against Green Bay.

(The Sports Xchange) - Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles, who was involved in a violent collision with San Diego Chargers cornerback Brandon Flowers while scoring a touchdown but stayed in Sunday's game, now admits that maybe he had symptoms of a concussion. "It definitely hurt," Charles said during an interview with ESPN Radio on Tuesday. "It's like, I woke up -- I mean, like, a couple plays later I was seeing light bulbs, like, light bulbs around my eyes, and I was trying to catch them. But I was in the game so I was like, 'All right, let's get the ball and run again. ...
The keyword for Eagles defensive coordinator Billy Davis is fix. When the pass rush isn't getting to the opposing quarterback, Davis says, ''we'll get that fixed.'' If his cornerbacks are giving up chunks of yardage in coverage, Davis says, ''that can be fixed.'' So what did Davis say after his defense comes off its best game since he became coordinator, a 27-0 shutout of the Giants in which Giants quarterbacks Eli Manning and Ryan Nassib were sacked eight times? ''I think we're growing,'' Davis said Wednesday as he prepared his unit to face the Arizona Cardinals, Sunday in Arizona.
