It was reported here that Bobby Carpenter allowed the untouched Arizona Cardinal player to run straight at Mat McBriar to block the punt. It was not.
According to Hashmarks, it was back-up tight end Tony Curtis.
The Cardinals actually had a return set up on the punt, but when Sean Morey lined up on the right side he noticed that no one was blocking him. No one ever touched him and he arrived before Mat McBriar had any hope of getting the punt away. Cowboys linebacker Kevin Burnett has been out there in the past, but he was moved to the guard spot because he’s such a strong blocker. From watching replays, it looked as if tight end Tony Curtis and wide receiver Miles Austin were on the left side. Of course, none of the Cowboys wanted to release that information. But the more people I talk to, the more it seems as if Curtis was the culprit.
