This week, the Detroit Lions will be facing off against a surprising 2-7 Dallas Cowboys team. The last few years, the Cowboys defense was coached and coordinated by their head coach Wade Philips, but since he was fired two weeks ago, Paul Pasqualoni has taken over.
IRVING, Texas — There have been plenty of changes at Valley Ranch the last two weeks, the biggest coming when Jason Garrett took over for Wade Phillips as head coach. But when Phillips was sent home, the Dallas Cowboys also lost their defensive coordinator. Jerry Jones and Garrett elected to put the best man remaining in charge of the defense in Paul Pasqualoni.
With so much size and talent in their receiving corps, it’s no wonder the Dallas Cowboys have the NFL’s fourth-best passing offense. Miles Austin and Dez Bryant are 6-feet-2. Roy Williams is 6-3. They each weigh about 215 pounds. Add to that tight end Jason Witten, 6-6 and 263 pounds and second on the team in receptions, and that’s a formidable challenge for any secondary.
Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) – At 2-7, the Dallas Cowboys don’t seem primed to be playing postseason football this January, but given that fantasy playoffs typically take place between Weeks 14-17 that should matter little to gamers everywhere.
IRVING, Texas (AP) — Jon Kitna has cracked the code. He’s figured out the secret to the success of Roger Staubach and Troy Aikman, his most heralded predecessors as quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys.
