Opposing player to watch: 49ers right tackle Trenton Brown

Luckily for the Cowboys, and maybe not so luckily for the sake of this article, there aren’t any names that jump out like that with this week’s opponent, the 49ers. There are plenty of solid veterans with recognizable names such as Pierre Garcon, Joe Staley,...

Cowboys activate David Irving, replaces Charles Tapper who goes to IR

The Cowboys add a piece to their defensive line. The Dallas Cowboys finally made official what had been widely speculated upon all week. They added defensive lineman David Irving to the 53-man roster ahead of the game against the Green Bay Packers.

Irving might be the player the Cowboys have been looking for to help take some of the pass rush pressure off of DeMarcus Lawrence. Lawrence has been a one-man wrecking crew, but for the Cowboys defense to...
