Sean Lee wants more time to decide if this is the best chance the Dallas Cowboys have to be defined by their defense in the linebacker's eight years with the club. The Cowboys (1-1) are fourth in the NFL in total defense, with a loss to Carolina that could have been a blowout and a win over the New York Giants that wasn't nearly as close as the seven-point margin. ''I think we're starting to show the type of defense we can be,'' Lee said Thursday.

In Week 2, the Redskins came back down to Earth, the Cowboys get a boring first win, and are we sure Ben McAdoo was the problem in New York? ICYMI: Despite having 2013 Pro Bowlers Alex Smith and Adrian Peterson (and the whole 20 yards he ran for), Washington made Andrew Luck look like it was 2014, losing to Indy 21-9. With a chance to get a leg-up in the division, Washington fell flat on their faces in a convincing defeat that can best be described as yawn-inducing.

(Reuters) - The Dallas Cowboys are the most valuable National Football League team for a 12th consecutive year, valued at nearly twice the league average, according to the annual list published by business magazine Forbes on Thursday. The

Teams will consistently stack the box against Ezekiel Elliott until the Cowboys find a way to make teams pay. One way to do that is with run-pass options, which takes advantage of quarterback Dak Prescott’s above-average athleticism and familiarity with RPOs, a scheme he ran in college at Mississippi State. When teams have to fear the deep pass, safeties have to play deeper coverage, which often keeps them from rolling an additional defender into the box.

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Dak Prescott wasn't much into Cam Newton comparisons when the subject came up before his Dallas Cowboys faced the star quarterback of the Carolina Panthers in the opener. And that was before Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry

Taking down the New York Giants 20-13 last night on their home turf of AT&T Stadium, the Dallas Cowboys had a very good Sunday. Not only did the big draw Lone Star State team score their first win of the new NFL season but quarterback Dak Prescott snagged a new career record with a 64-yard touchdown wining pass. All of which meant it was not such a good night for Eli Manning and the Giants with their second loss of the season.

Eli Manning was getting hammered hard even when he wasn't getting sacked by the Dallas Cowboys. When the New York Giants quarterback scrambled up the middle into the open field in the third quarter, he took a crushing blow from linebacker Jaylon Smith . ''It was third down, I was trying to make something happen,'' Manning said.

Dak Prescott accepted the challenge. The Dallas quarterback threw a 64-yard touchdown pass to Tavon Austin on the third play of the game and the Cowboys sacked Eli Manning six times in a 20-13 victory over the New York Giants on Sunday night. The Dallas defense was strong again, just as in an opening loss at Carolina, as the Cowboys (1-1) avoided the first 0-2 start in seven seasons under coach Jason Garrett.

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Dallas Cowboys defensive end Randy Gregory is inactive against the New York Giants after sustaining a concussion in the opener. Tight end Rico Gathers is active for Dallas on Sunday night for the first time in his three-year NFL

Cowboys defensive end Randy Gregory is out of concussion protocol and back on the practice field on Friday as Dallas wraps up workouts ahead of their NFC East game with the New York Giants. Gregory suffered a concussion Week 1 at Carolina in his first game since he participated in two games in 2016. This comes two days after Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said reports Sunday that Gregory had a "relapse" and was facing another suspension were unfounded.
