Dallas Cowboys:

latest news at page 1:
    Getty The Cowboys were rumored to have an interest in Lincoln Riley before they hired Mike McCarthy. The Dallas Cowboys ultimately hired Mike McCarthy to be the team’s head coach in 2020, but ownership also explored flashier options. According to Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer, the Cowboys explored the possibility of hiring then-Oklahoma head coach Lincoln Riley, who just accepted the USC position, prior to landing McCarthy. “Second, NFL teams have flocked to Norman, Okla. the last few years to learn more about what the innovative Riley was doing, and that made him a sort of white whale for the pros to pursue, in the same way Chip Kelly once was,” Breer detailed on November 29. “Rumors were rampant that the Cowboys had interest a couple of years back, and others have kicked the tires since, and this at least should put the idea of his landing in the NFL on hold for a while.” ALL the latest Dallas Cowboys news straight to your inbox!

    ARLINGTON, TEXAS – AUGUST 21: Quarterback Dak Prescott #4 of the Dallas Cowboys talks with offensive coordinator Kellen Moore of the Dallas Cowboys on the field during pregame warm-ups before the Dallas Cowboys take on the Houston Texans in a preseason NFL game at AT&T Stadium on August 21, 2021 in Arlington, Texas. (Photo by Tom Pennington/Getty Images) Following their latest crushing loss, it’s time for the Minnesota Vikings to go out and find a new head coach. It’s time to move on from Mike Zimmer. Alright. It’s time. The Minnesota Vikings need to move on from Mike Zimmer. Following yet another disappointing loss, this time against a previously winless Detroit Lions team, the Vikings need to go ahead and find a new head coach. The Vikings fell to 5-7 after their heartbreaking loss to the 1-10-1 Lions. This is a game that Minnesota had a chance to jump back into after falling behind 20-6 by the time halftime rolled around. But, despite an attempt at a comeback, Detroit held on to win 29-27 thanks to an 11-yard pass touchdown...
    Getty Cowboys QB Dak Prescott The Dallas Cowboys‘ rushing attack is out of whack, but that’s because star running back Ezekiel Elliott is being slowed by a knee injury. The Cowboys’ once-elite offensive line is not performing up to snuff, but rotating tackles and left guards would explain that. Of all the issues currently plaguing Kellen Moore’s unit, $160 million franchise quarterback Dak Prescott — stunningly enough — may top the list. To any unbiased observer, the level of Prescott’s play has dipped dramatically following a white-hot start to the season that garnered early consideration for NFL Most Valuable Player. If it weren’t for a heroic fourth-quarter effort in Dallas’ Thanksgiving loss to Vegas, Prescott would not have recorded a 300-yard passing game since Week 6. Coincidentally (or not), that’s also the last time he’s thrown for three or more touchdowns in a game. He’s tossed three over the previous three weeks — combined. Prescott completed 26-of-40 balls for 238 yards, one TD, and one interception amid Thursday’s win at New Orleans. The pick was a bad throw,...
    Getty Ezekiel Elliott faces an uncertain future with the Dallas Cowboys. Given the emergence of Tony Pollard, speculation continues to grow about Ezekiel Elliott’s future with the Dallas Cowboys. ESPN’s Bill Barnwell believes the Cowboys could move on from Elliott after next season, a move that would give the team more of a chance to retain Pollard when he hits free agency in 2022. Barnwell noted that significant contracts for NFL running backs have become problematic adding that Pollard could be the best rusher on the Dallas roster. “Over the past three years, Prescott has a 67.6 QBR with Elliott on the field and a 68.2 QBR with Pollard taking his place,” Barnwell explained. “The Cowboys have also moved toward a more pass-happy attack in the process. Elliott’s still a useful player, of course, but he has gone from being the focal point of the Dallas offense to a less-effective secondary piece. It’s reasonable to wonder if Elliott’s even the best back on the Dallas roster right now. The Cowboys are basically locked in to one more...
    Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys have issues on offense, with the luxury of time to fix them coming off a victory at New Orleans that could result in a three-game lead in the NFC East with five to go. The Cowboys had a season-high six three-and-outs in a 27-17 victory over the Saints — not counting Prescott’s interception on another three-play possession in the fourth quarter. The Dallas offense has 16 three-and-outs the past three games after just 15 in the first nine. The Cowboys (8-4) might still have the NFL’s No. 1 offense in total yards when they return from a mini-break at Washington on Dec. 12. But that unit hasn’t looked anything like it for most of a 2-3 stretch. “We’re far from where we want to be,” said receiver CeeDee Lamb, who helped a badly struggling run game look better statistically by setting up a touchdown with a 33-yard play on a screen pass that was officially a run. “We didn’t capitalize on a lot of drives,” Lamb said. “I feel like we kept them...

    Getty Pro Bowl CB Darius Slay has 22 career interceptions, including two through nine games this season. Bad playoff losses leave a stinging sensation in players’ mouths. Those defeats burn a bit more when the refs play a role in the unfavorable outcome. The latter happened to the Detroit Lions in 2015 when a penalty flag was thrown and then picked up. Dallas Cowboys linebacker Anthony Hitchens bowled over Brandon Pettigrew in what looked like an easy pass interference call. It wasn’t called and no explanation was ever given. The Lions lost the wild-card playoff game 24-20. That memory may be six years old but it still irks Darius Slay who was a starting cornerback for the Lions at the time. Slay recently told the “All Things Covered” podcast that he “hates the Cowboys” because they “cheated us.” The comments certainly played well in Philadelphia where the Eagles count the Cowboys as their number one rival. “Dallas Sucks” is a common chant from the fans, among other NSFW diatribes about the Cowboys. “I hate the Cowboys because they...
    Getty Cowboys DC Dan Quinn Perhaps it was the buzz of Bourbon Street or the natural high of victory, but Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was in a particularly affable mood following Thursday’s game against the New Orleans Saints. How affable? Jones went so far as to liken Cowboys interim head coach/defensive coordinator Dan Quinn to Hall-of-Fame coach Tom Landry. Really. “With the win, I told him he’s right there with Tom Landry,” Jones said in his postgame pow-wow with reporters, via Jori Epstein of USA Today. “He now can say he’s head coached the Cowboys.” Must’ve been the Big Easy talking … Cowboys owner Jerry Jones on @1053thefan talking about how much he loves New Orleans: “When you see me, you’re only seeing 80 percent. … Because I’ve left the other 20 percent on Bourbon Street.

    Tony Pollard, Dallas Cowboys. Mandatory Credit: Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports Tony Pollard has proven to be a potential star with the Cowboys but, if Dallas sticks with Ezekiel Elliott, where could they trade the young RB? It certainly appears that the Dallas Cowboys are heading towards a crossroads with their running back room. Ezekiel Elliott remains under contract for quite a while and, frankly, it’s not going to be anytime soon that they can get out of that deal with the way it’s structured. But meanwhile, Tony Pollard has emerged as a dynamic, dangerous playmaker. Considering that Pollard is younger, has less mileage on the tires, and is seemingly just better right now — although, admittedly, Elliott has unwisely been playing through injury for the past few weeks — it would make sense if the Cowboys pivoted to Pollard as the lead back. But if Jerry Jones and the organization wants to remain committed to Elliott, then they would be almost foolish to let a player with Pollard’s talent and intrigue waste away as a backup when he could offer...
    The Dallas Cowboys are in New Orleans for Thursday Night Football and one fan took it to the next level with a wild get-up to wear to the game. They’re a group that’s certainly experienced plenty of frustration over the years, but Dallas Cowboys fans are nothing if not dedicated to their team. Sometimes, they might be a big delusional, but they are always all-in on the franchise. So when the club headed down to New Orleans for Thursday Night Football to kick off Week 13, it was a given that fans would show up to support Dallas on the road. However, in true Bourbon Street fashion, at least one fan took it to the next level. Namely, this fan dressed in a full Cowboys-themed knight costume to go to the game in, which is just extreme dedication that you have to respect, no matter which NFL franchise you support.

    Getty S Tyler Coyle The Dallas Cowboys publicized a pair of roster moves hours before its Week 13 tilt at New Orleans. The Cowboys activated defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence from injured reserve and promoted safety Tyler Coyle from the practice squad, the team announced Thursday, December 2.

    CeeDee Lamb had 122 yards from scrimmage, Tony Pollard had a 58-yard touchdown run and the Dallas defense produced timely sacks and turnovers in the Cowboys' 27-17 victory over the New Orleans Saints on Thursday night. The Cowboys intercepted Saints quarterback Taysom Hill three times in the final 6:32 of the game, including defensive tackle Carlos Watkins' pick-6 on a screen pass that made it 27-10 with 2:52 left. The Saints gave the dual threat Hill his first start this season in hopes that he could help New Orleans end a four-game skid. He was effective in spurts, passing for 264 yards and two touchdowns — and running for 101 yards — but he threw four interceptions. Dak Prescott passed for 238 yards and a 1-yard touchdown to Michael Gallup as Dallas (8-4) won without coach Mike McCarthy and five assistants because of positive COVID-19 tests.

    FRISCO, Texas (AP) — Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle Trysten Hill’s suspension for punching Las Vegas offensive lineman John Simpson after a Thanksgiving Day loss to the Raiders has been reduced to one game. The NFL suspended Hill two games over the altercation, saying Hill waited nearly a minute in order to confront Simpson after Las Vegas’ 36-33 overtime victory. Hill knocked off Simpson’s helmet with an open-handed punch. NFL and players’ union appeals officer Derrick Brooks heard Hill’s appeal Tuesday and ruled in favor of the third-year player. Hill will miss Thursday’s game at New Orleans but will be eligible to play at Washington on Dec. 12. The league said the suspension was for violations of rules regarding unnecessary roughness and unsportsmanlike conduct, particularly for contact to a player’s face, head or neck. Hill had just played his best game of the season, leading Dallas defensive linemen with five tackles against the Raiders. Dallas’ top pick as a second-rounder in 2019, Hill has played just 15 games in three seasons. He missed the last 11 games of 2020 and...

During a media call, McCarthy indicated that if Cooper does not practice on December 1 he will likely miss the Cowboys primetime matchup against the Saints. “Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (COVID-19) is back in building but ‘still not feeling the best,’ coach Mike McCarthy said,” Dallas Morning News’ Michael Gehlken tweeted on November 30. “Still has a cough. ‘To be determined’ whether he’ll practice today. ‘My gut would be if he doesn’t practice tomorrow, I don’t see him going to the game.'” ALL the latest Dallas Cowboys news straight to your inbox!

    Getty Cowboys owner Jerry Jones Things are going from bad to worse for the Dallas Cowboys. Riding a two-game losing streak and now down their head coach, the Cowboys were dealt another blow Monday when defensive tackle Trysten Hill was suspended two games without pay by the NFL for “violations of unnecessary roughness and unsportsmanlike conduct rules,” the league announced. The suspension stems from an incident following last Thursday’s loss to the Raiders during which Hill struck with an open hand the facemask of Las Vegas offensive lineman John Simpson. The punch knocked Simpson’s helmet to the turf and caused a brief altercation between the players, who were separated near midfield at AT&T Stadium. “After the Las Vegas Raiders-Dallas Cowboys game on November 25, you engaged in conduct that this office considers unnecessary roughness and displays a lack of sportsmanship,” NFL Vice President of Football Operations Jon Runyan wrote in a letter to Hill, explaining his punishment. “Specifically, as both teams were shaking hands, you waited more than 50 seconds for your opponent at the 50-yard line. When...
    DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – The Dallas Cowboys’ COVID outbreak is one of the biggest in the NFL this season.

    Dallas Cowboys defensive lineman Trysten Hill received a two-game suspension. Here is the reason why. The Dallas Cowboys had an eventful Thanksgiving Day game against the Las Vegas Raiders. Days removed from the 36-33 loss, a player on the Cowboys’ defense was handed a punishment by the NFL. And no, it was not for the involvement in that fight following a second-half punt. Dallas defensive lineman Trysten Hill was suspended two games without pay by the league for “violations of unnecessary roughness and unsportsmanlike conduct rules” following a postgame altercation with Raiders offensive guard John Simpson. As you can see in the video below, courtesy of The Athletic’s Jon Machota, Hill approached Simpson and threw a punch at him once the game was over and the score was final.

    The NFL suspended Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle Trysten Hill for two games Monday for confronting Las Vegas offensive lineman John Simpson and throwing a punch after the Raiders’ 36-33 overtime win on Thanksgiving. Hill, who was sidelined the first eight games of the season while recovering from a torn knee ligament last year, will miss Thursday night’s game at New Orleans and the Dec. 12 game at Washington. He can return Dec. 19 at the New York Giants, the last of three consecutive road games. NFL vice president of football operations Jon Runyan said in a letter to the Hill that the third-year player spent nearly a minute at midfield after the game looking for Simpson and walked the opposite direction from the Dallas locker room to confront the Raiders’ left guard. “You both engaged in a verbal chest-to-chest confrontation which you escalated by throwing an open hand punch to his facemask, forcible enough to cause your opponent’s helmet to come off,” Runyan wrote. The league said the suspension was for violations of rules regarding unnecessary roughness and unsportsmanlike conduct,...

McCarthy announced on Sunday, November 28 that Cowboys strength and conditioning coach Harold Nash, assistant offensive line coach Joe Blasko, and coaching assistant Scott Tolzien have joined offensive line coach Joe Philbin and assistant strength and conditioning coaches Kendall Smith and Cedric Smith in the league’s COVID protocol. This, coinciding with offensive tackle Terence Steele’s placement on the Reserve/COVID-19 list, knocking him — as well as the above — out for Thursday’s road game at New Orleans. “Yes, I’ll start with the COVID protocol, we’ve had some positive tests,” McCarthy revealed during his press conference, before naming the afflicted. … “So, we’re working through that.

    Getty Cowboys HC Mike McCarthy Dallas Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy was left speechless in the wake of Thursday’s penalty-fest against the Las Vegas Raiders. By Friday, though, McCarthy had much to say about the controversial 36-33 overtime loss during which his team was flagged a franchise-record 14 times. And said it. “This game was totally off the trend line, as you can see as far as statistics. I’ve already talked to the league this morning, and I anticipate a second conversation, maybe this afternoon,” McCarthy revealed to reporters on November 26, via Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News. One hundred and sixty-six penalty yards were assessed against the Cowboys in the thrilling Thanksgiving defeat, none more backbreaking than a 33-yard defensive interference charged to cornerback Anthony Brown in OT.

    Getty Cowboys wide receiver CeeDee Lamb is expected to return versus Saints. The Dallas Cowboys expect CeeDee Lamb back for their Week 13 matchup against the New Orleans Saints. Lamb missed the Cowboys’ Week 12 clash versus the Las Vegas Raiders after not clearing concussion protocol. However, as the Cowboys prepare for another Thursday night game, Lamb is receiving an early clearance, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter. “Cowboys’ WR CeeDee Lamb, who missed Thursday’s Thanksgiving Day game because of a concussion, is expected back for Dallas’ Thursday night game against the Saints, per source.” Lamb initially entered the league’s concussion protocol after hitting his head on the field in Week 11 against the Kansas City Chiefs. He exited during the second quarter and hasn’t played since. The Thanksgiving clash versus the Raiders was Lamb’s first NFL game missed after playing in his first 26 career games.

    Ezekiel Elliott was clearly limited in the Cowboys’ Thanksgiving loss and now Dallas could turn to Tony Pollard in Week 13 and give the RB1 some rest. The Dallas Cowboys are certainly reeling after their Thanksgiving Day loss to the Raiders, making them losers in three of their last four games and looking quite out of sorts on a number of occasions. And running back Ezekiel Elliott’s injury situation hasn’t helped matters. Elliott has been playing through a knee injury and, though he’s been able to find the end zone a few times, the former Cowboys top-five pick has been limited in his usage and, at the same time, his overall effectiveness as well. But now, Dallas might be looking at the bigger picture. According to ESPN’s Ed Werder, the team is considering resting Elliott in Week 13 on Thursday against the Saints and giving backup Tony Pollard the start in what has become a crucial game for America’s Team. Just in terms of getting Zeke healthy, that would make a lot of sense. It also shouldn’t be overlooked, however,...
    ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Ezekiel Elliott’s health is a concern, Dak Prescott’s accuracy is off at times, and the Dallas offense has sputtered to the point that the Cowboys haven’t held a lead at all in their three losses in a four-game stretch. So forget for a moment about a franchise-record 166 penalty yards, fueled mostly by cornerback Anthony Brown’s staggering four pass-interference fouls, the last costing the Cowboys the game in a 36-33 overtime loss to Las Vegas on Thanksgiving. “We need to learn to win those games ugly,” coach Mike McCarthy said Friday. “Winning ugly is very important, particularly in this part of the season. Throughout the league, it’s attrition time. This is where you have to do the little things, particularly in the fourth quarter, and in game situations to bring home the victory.” The first and second quarters have put the Cowboys (7-4) in difficult spots lately. All three of the losses in the four-game stretch were to AFC West teams, and Dallas trailed by double digits before halftime in each one. “We’ve got to start...

    The Dallas Cowboys lost a close game to the Las Vegas Raiders on Thanksgiving in a matchup that was overshadowed by the number of penalties that were assessed. Between both teams, there were 28 accepted penalties. Both teams were penalized 14 times. Dallas was hit for 166 yards while the Raiders were hit for 110 yards. Cowboys players were a bit confused over why there were so many flags thrown during the game.

Las Vegas got its wish as cornerback Anthony Brown was penalized four times for pass interference for a total of 91 yards. "I call it ‘throw-up ball.’ This will arguably be the most-watched game...
    (CNN)Daniel Carlson kicked a 29-yard field goal in overtime to condemn the Dallas Cowboys to a heartbreaking home 36-33 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders on Thanksgiving. In what was a penalty-ridden NFL game at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, a pass interference called on Cowboys cornerback Anthony Brown kept the Raiders drive alive in overtime with the scores knotted up. The penalty allowed Las Vegas quarterback Derek Carr to set his team up within manageable field goal range to claim a famous victory, and Carlson duly converted his fifth field goal of the game. The win ends a three-game losing streak for the Raiders and is their first Thanksgiving victory since 1968. It is a crushing defeat for the Cowboys who have Super Bowl aspirations this season.

    ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Derek Carr and the Las Vegas Raiders got the third-down help they needed from Dallas cornerback Anthony Brown. Daniel Carlson kicked a 29-yard field goal in overtime after Brown’s fourth pass-interference penalty kept the drive alive, and the Raiders ended a three-game losing streak by beating the Cowboys 36-33 on Thursday.

All four of Brown’s interference penalties came on third-down incompletions. “The penalties obviously helped,” said Carr, whose 373 yards passing included a 56-yard touchdown to DeSean Jackson for the first points. “If they weren’t holding, we probably would have hit those plays.” The Raiders had just two third-down conversions total the previous two games and were 3 of 13 in this one. But Brown topped that total all by himself. “Just one of them days,” Brown said. “I feel like I was in position for all of them, tried to turn my head. On some of them...
    ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — The Dallas Cowboys struggled through a November trip through the AFC West that took plenty of luster off their incredible start, even as they still control the NFC East. After forcing overtime Thursday, the Cowboys had two more untimely penalties after they got the ball first before losing 36-33 to the Las Vegas Raiders. It was the third loss in four games for Dallas, all against AFC West teams. From a 6-1 record after a Halloween victory at Minnesota, the Cowboys finished their annual Thanksgiving Day game 7-4. They won’t play at home again until the day after Christmas. “That certainly (was) a home game we all hoped that before we got on the road that we could win this game,” Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said. “Oakland took advantage of the situation. I call it throw-up ball. Right way to play in a game like this, just throw it out there and get a penalty.” Daniel Carlson’s game-ending 29-yard field goal came after cornerback Anthony Brown was called for pass interference on a...

    The Dallas Cowboys came back on Thanksgiving to force overtime but Anthony Brown’s persistent DPI penalties ultimately sunk them and fans were quite angry. For much of the Thanksgiving Day game between the Dallas Cowboys and Las Vegas Raiders, it looked as if the latter was going to run away with it. They were getting the right bounces, making plays and watching Dallas continuously shoot themselves in the foot. One of the biggest culprits of that was cornerback Anthony Brown. In regulation, the veteran (who had no pass interference penalties on the season) was flagged three times for defensive pass interference. Despite that, though, Dallas clawed back and forced overtime thanks to a fourth-quarter rally. In the extra period, Dak Prescott and the Cowboys got the ball first but failed to convert even a first down. But the defense looked as if it might step up after forcing a long third down. That’s when Brown came into play again. Raiders quarterback Derek Carr attempted a deep throw to Zay Jones but underthrew it. Anthony Brown was in coverage, though, and...
    Dallas Cowboys linebacker Micah Parsons was called for roughing the passer, after Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Derek Carr fell into him. Dallas Cowboys fans had to be dealing with heartburn on Thursday night, and it had nothing to do with Thanksgiving dinner. Rather, it had to do with the calls by officials during their Thanksgiving game against the Las Vegas Raiders. Dallas fans were no doubt furious about one penalty in particular. In the second half, Cowboys rookie linebacker Micah Parsons was called for a roughing the passer penalty. But upon further replay, the flag was thrown after Raiders quarterback Derek Carr…fell right into Parson’s hand and knee. Take a look for yourselves in the video below. “Forcible” contact is obviously subjective but I would put this in the “glancing” category rather than “forcible”. https://t.co/Vq2yzm60NK — Terry McAulay (@SNFRules) November 26, 2021 Micah Parsons called for questionable roughing the passer penalty vs. Raiders That penalty turned out to be costly for Dallas, as it turned an 11-yard reception by Hunter Renfrow into a 26-yard gain with the penalty.

    Dallas Cowboys and Las Vegas Raiders players broke out into a massive brawl in the third quarter of their Thanksgiving matchup. With about 13 minutes left in the quarter and the Raiders up 17-13, Las Vegas punter A.J. Cole booted the ball down the field and out of bounds. The play seemed to be over but then Raiders safety Roderic Teamer and Cowboys cornerback Kelvin Joseph started to fight each other after the whistle.

    DeSean Jackson scored on a long touchdown against the Dallas Cowboys and Eagles fans are loving every second of it.  Thanks to his brilliant speed, wide receiver DeSean Jackson has found a new home with the Las Vegas Raiders. Despite things not working out with the Rams, Jackson and Derek Carr are building some chemistry, which was showcased with a 56-yard TD against Dallas on Thursday.

    The Dallas Cowboys looked as though they had one of the more impressive defensive plays of the year against the Raiders, until it was stolen from them. On the surface, Raiders tight end Darren Waller looked as though he fumbled against the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving. The play would have altered the optics of the first half, and turned over the field as well. Dallas struggled to recover the fumble on the field of play, but on an incredible play the Keanu Neal was able to flip the ball back inbounds to to Jayron Kearse. Yet, apparently Waller didn’t take enough steps with the football, or make a ‘football play’, so the officials called it incomplete on the field.

    ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Dallas Cowboys receiver CeeDee Lamb is out against the Las Vegas Raiders on Thanksgiving with a concussion, and left tackle Tyron Smith is returning after missing three games with an ankle injury. Lamb practiced the day before Thursday’s game in an effort to get cleared to play, but the clearance didn’t come. The second-year player sustained the concussion just before halftime in Sunday’s 19-9 loss to Kansas City. The absence of Lamb leaves the Cowboys without their top two receivers. Amari Cooper is missing his second consecutive game after testing positive for COVID-19. Cooper isn’t vaccinated, and the short week after the loss to the Chiefs cost him the second game because of the NFL’s protocols. Smith hurt the ankle in a victory over Minnesota on Oct. 31, and the Cowboys lost twice without him in the two worst offensive performances of the season for Dallas. Las Vegas left guard John Simpson is active after being listed as questionable with an oblique injury, and running back Jalen Richard (ribs) was cleared for a full practice...
