  • Cowboys Turn Down Chance at a 'Fair Catch Kick'

    01/15/2017 5:38:21 PM PST · by nickcarraway · 34 replies
    The Dallas Cowboys turned down a rare opportunity Sunday just before halftime of their divisional playoff game against the Green Bay Packers. After punt returner Cole Beasley fair caught a Packers punt at the Cowboys' 38-yard line, Dallas could have utilized an obscure NFL rule to attempt an untimed, unrushed field goal attempt. (It's known as a "fair catch kick.") Because the defense can't rush, the kick can't be blocked. And with no time left on the first-half game clock, the Cowboys wouldn't have had to worry about giving the ball back to the Packers.

    The Green Bay Packers are back in the NFC title game. Mason Crosby's 56- and 51-yard field goals late in the fourth quarter sent Green Bay past the Dallas Cowboys, 34-31, in Saturday's Divisional Round matchup. Dak Prescott led a 15-point Cowboys comeback, culminating in a 52-yard Dan Bailey field goal with 44 seconds left. But Aaron Rodgers saved his best for last, capping off a 43-yard, 32-second drive with an impossible 36-yard sideline bullet to Jared Cook. The play set up Crosby's winning kick with three seconds left.

    It’s been a rather strange 2016 season in the NFL. Teams expected to be among the top contenders (Colts and Packers) are fighting for their playoff lives, while teams not expected to do much (Raiders and Cowboys) sit atop their divisions and look to secure home-field advantage. Such unpredictability helps make the NFL exciting and fun each year. Two playoff contenders, the Cowboys and Vikings, will battle it out on Thursday Night Football this week. The Cowboys own the NFC East with the best record in the NFL (10-1). They’re also riding a 10-game winning streak thanks to rookie quarterback...

    If that hit on quarterback Tony Romo’s back looked bad, there’s a good reason for it. It was bad. Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Romo is expected to miss 6-10 weeks with a broken bone in his back. The team will be announcing the injury; it’s unclear whether the team will put a duration on the absence.

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: You know, I meant to mention this yesterday. The Dallas Cowboys created a helmet decal that they wanted to wear on the back of the helmet in this upcoming season honoring the slain police officers in the Dallas massacre. The NFL said, "No. It violates our rules." The NFL said no. Now, the NFL devotes the entire month of October to making their players look silly wearing pink gloves and pink socks and pink this and pink that -- and pretty soon the ball's gonna be pink, I'm guessing (that wouldn't surprise me, either) -- in honor...

Police say they received a complaint from numerous bystanders and patrons inside the bathroom complaining of a person who didn’t belong there.

    Here's what the oddsmakers at Boomaker.eu had to say about setting the spread for the Carolina at Dallas contest, which opened at Cowboys -1 with a total of 47:From a pure power ratings perspective, Carolina should be favored in this matchup. But given that it's the Cowboys on Thanksgiving Day with Romo back on the field, we had to open the home squad as short chalk. The country will be watching and the Cowboys are still America's team. We'll see how the action develops for the game over the course of the week, but it's already clear that while the...

    The Business Insider ^ | 11/3 | Scott Davis
    According to several reports, including ESPN, the Dallas Cowboys have released 23-year-old running back Joseph Randle. This is a fairly shocking development after Randle was demoted from starting running back last week, left the team's facilities unannounced, and was dealing with "personal matters." This also comes after Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he was concerned about Randle's mental well-being. Randle was expected to take over as the Cowboys starting running back this season in the wake of DeMarco Murray. Through five games, the results were unimpressive, and following a strained oblique and breakout performance from Darren McFadden, the Cowboys demoted...

    Dez Bryant kept going after Dallas cornerback Tyler Patmon in a heated training camp skirmish that didn't end until quarterback Tony Romo finally stepped in and calmed his star receiver. Bryant, 26, who has a history of sideline antics that include screaming at coaches and teammates, appeared to take a swing at Patmon after the two tangled during a play in 11-on-11 work late in practice Sunday. The incident started when Patmon jarred Bryant's helmet loose during a play and Bryant responded by yanking off Patmon's helmet. Patmon, 24, threw a punch and backed away, and Bryant came back with...

    Rush Limbaugh says that while liberals continue to demonize Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, his true character can be seen in a story in Sen. Ted Cruz's new book. Cruz once was a clerk for the U.S. Supreme Court, and told the story about Thomas Tuesday night on Fox News Channel's "The Kelly File." In his book, "A Time for Truth: Reigniting the Promise of America," GOP presidential hopeful Cruz tells of a young teenage boy who had gotten a chance to visit the court's offices. Thomas spent two hours talking to the junior high student named Carlos, who, like...
