“Jason’s obviously a special player”.
Jets 31, Browns 10: Ryan Fitzpatrick threw two touchdown passes and Chris Ivory ran for two scores in coach Todd Bowles’ debut for New York. “He’s the best”. Although his after the catch play-making is definitely missing, Witten most certainly will catch whatever comes his way.
Dez Bryant’s broken foot leaves the Dallas Cowboys in a bind.
Dez was rightly jazzed about his quarterback’s game-winning play, and it’s not his job to get down in the dumps, but his injury raises serious questions.
Here are grades for the Dallas Cowboys in Sunday’s 27-26 victory against the New York Giants. How will the Cowboys hold up without their best receiver?
The Giants led 23-13 on Rashad Jennings’ 1-yard plunge with 8 minutes left, immediately after Trumaine McBride’s interception return during which 250-pound defensive end Damontre Moore knocked down Romo hard.
The Cowboys ended up on top, but they might have benefited from questionable strategy and time management by the Giants in the final two minutes. “That’s 100pc on me right now”. “And then you don’t execute in little things like dropped passes and overthrown balls”. “It should have been a run, whether we scored or not”. On the next snap, Romo threw behind Witten, who tipped the ball to linebacker Uani Unga for an interception that led to a field goal. That’s him hopping around gleefully on his broken foot, congratulating teammates and staffers in the tunnel after the game. Cowboys offense and offensive tactics will also change in the absence of Bryant. You can tell, he’s very poised.
“He has great poise”. He was around the quarterback a lot.
They didn’t answer any of the question marks that they had heading into the game and there are some even bigger ones coming out of it. That isn’t to say that they can’t bounce back and answer all of them. The injury will force him to undergo surgery, and he will be missing between 4-6 weeks of game time, according to ESPN.
The Giants defense wasn’t able to win the game, but it did manage to earn some valuable confidence.
While the team appears to be looking for depth at the position, third-year receiver Terrance Williams becomes No. 1 on the depth chart. The Giants ended up converting on a field goal to make it 26-20 Giants which gave Romo 1:34 to score.
With 2014 National Football League rushing leader DeMarco Murray shipped off to the Philadelphia Eagles, Dallas’ running game needs a lifeline.
