Third downs were the Dallas Cowboys’ specialty, and a primary reason they logged a 12-4 record in 2014.
Quarterback Tony Romo was placed on injured reserve with a designation to return.
It’s been a disaster start for the Philadelphia Eagles in just about every way.
Devonta Freeman, RB, Falcons: If Tevin Coleman’s rib injury forces him to miss games, Freeman will become Atlanta’s workhorse by default. “We definitely like these kind of ball games where it’s not so much trick ’em or run them around the field”.
The news of the trade happened just moments after it was revealed that the Cowboys had brought quarterback Kellen Moore to the active roster. Opponents knew it was coming and still couldn’t stop it. With Weeden under center, the Cowboys would be wise to go back to this formula for success.
By now, you’ve seen Weeden’ numbers – 7 of 7, 73 yards and 1 touchdown.
“I think there are certain things that everybody does that’s predictable from a tendency standpoint”, Kelly said.
And on Tuesday, we heard it again from a different source, profootballfocus.com, which released its weekly grades. That touchdown pass to wide receiver Terrence Williams was crisp. But those of us old-schoolers who remember a simpler time before 24/7 “DraftKings” commercials can’t just start over with a new team this week any more than Jerry Jones can.
The Broncos mounted a furious comeback behind timely defensive plays and a vintage clutch performance from their 5-time MVP. “They were the opponent and we tended to be the enemy the other night”.
The Ravens waived undrafted rookie running back Terrence Magee. “He’s gotten a lot of reps in Tony’s absence from practice the last couple of years, so I think that’s benefited him”.
As for the Cowboys… one of the best teams in the league is falling apart because of bad luck. Not flawless , but it beats Cleveland, which has used four quarterbacks since Weeden left and is waiting out Gordon’s latest drug suspension. They’re going to hit the hole hard, and they’re going to try and make something happen after that. Heck, we don’t even know who Crockett Gillmore is, period. “I truly believe it’s a team game and one individual like me will make a difference”.
Randle has 34 carries for 116 yards in two games season compared to 11 yards on 21 carries for Murray. “So hopefully we can all rally and keep this going in the right direction”.
He was injured in the Buccaneers’ Week 2 win over the New Orleans Saints. We discuss how and why it happened, and where the Birds go from here. Along with that draft’s No. 3 overall pick, running back Trent Richardson, and receiver Josh Gordon, a supplemental pick, a tortured franchise felt it had an offensive nucleus for years to come.
