Ezekiel Elliott granted temporary restraining order, should play this Sunday

Ezekiel Elliott granted temporary restraining order, should play this Sunday

Ezekiel Eliott and the NFLPA win this round of the courtroom battle. The Dallas Cowboys should have Ezekiel Elliott on the field this Sunday, and perhaps for longer, as the courts have granted him a temporary restraining order. The ruling came down on Tuesday night after an afternoon hearing in a New York court. TRO is only effective until earlier of 10/30/17 or when Judge Failla decides Motion for PI. Not appealable now. https://t.co/jPKzIJMtZK— Daniel Wallach (@WALLACHLEGAL) October 17, 2017 The judge who heard the case was subbing in for the regular judge who is away on vacation,...

NFL power rankings Week 7: Bye week highlights “wonky” season for Cowboys

A look at where eight different power rankings rank the Cowboys and the rest of the NFC East The bye week didn't provide any shortage of headlines for the Cowboys. Not all of them were in the Cowboys' favor, and that's reflected in the power rankings below which see the Cowboys slip a little.

Who should Cowboys fans root for in the Week 7 Redskins and Eagles MNF matchup?

Who should Cowboys fans root for in the Week 7 Redskins and Eagles MNF matchup?

The question that’ll make you queasy, do you want the Redskins or Eagles to win this week? The Dallas Cowboys visit the winless San Francisco 49ers this week for a game on Sunday, then just over 24 hours from when that game ends, Monday Night Football will have the Washington Redskins (3-2) visiting the Philadelphia Eagles (5-1). The outcome of that game will drastically influence the state of the NFC East. The Eagles currently have a firm lead on the division Philadelphia is 5-1 with a pretty decent schedule through their game in Dallas on November 19th: Washington Redskins (3-2) San...

Ezekiel Elliott, NFLPA lose another motion in 5th Circuit Court, hopes ride on New York Court

Ezekiel Elliott, NFLPA lose another motion in 5th Circuit Court, hopes ride on New York Court

The Cowboys running back is down to one final shot to continue playing. The 5th Circuit Court has denied the NFLPA’s motion to vacate the mandate that struck down the temporary injunction that was allowing Ezekiel Elliott to keep playing. For a quick explanation, Elliott and the NFLPA had won a preliminary injunction from a Texas court that kept the NFL from suspending Elliott until his case could be heard in court. That has allowed the Cowboys running back to play this season. The NFL asked the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals to vacate that ruling, and last week they won that ruling, 2-1,...

Dallas Cowboys rookie report: Grading the rookies after five games

Dallas Cowboys rookie report: Grading the rookies after five games

It’s been five games. How do the Cowboys rookies look so far? Week six in the NFL has come and gone. The Kansas City Chiefs finally dropped their first game of the season the Atlanta Falcons blew a 17-0 lead to the Miami Dolphins at home, and the New England Patriots got a lucky break that helped them knock off the Jets on the road. Oh, and Aaron Rodgers may be out for the season. There was a lot of action while the Dallas Cowboys were off. But now, the Cowboys must regroup after a 2-3 start if they want any hope of making the playoffs for the third time in the last four seasons. If the...

Cowboys strength of schedule may not be quite as tough as you thought

Cowboys strength of schedule may not be quite as tough as you thought

A look at how the schedule for all 32 NFL teams is shaping up after six weeks of play. When we looked at the initial strength of schedule numbers for 2017 at the end of last season (at the time, those were still based on the opponent records in 2016), we saw that the Cowboys' 2016 opponents finished the 2016 season with a combined 134-118-4 record for a .531 winning percentage. That would have made the 2017 schedule one of the "toughest” schedules the Cowboys had in the last 10 years. SOS by...

Maybe you noticed that the Dallas Cowboys’ offense is on fire as of late

Maybe you noticed that the Dallas Cowboys’ offense is on fire as of late

The Cowboys offense is hot, but the defense has been toast. One way to evaluate either an offense or defense is to grade how each unit does on each individual drive. I’ve seen a number of ways of breaking drives down into “winners” and “losers”. Peter Alexieff, of our fellow SBNation site Field Gulls, segments drives into “successful”, “unsuccessful” and “money”. I like his approach but have modified it a bit by introducing “disaster” drives as well. The basic rules: A “money” drive ends in a touchdown... or a kneeldown that ends the game after at least one...

Chaos in the NFL means opportunity for Cowboys

Chaos in the NFL means opportunity for Cowboys

If you have already written Dallas off for the playoffs, you might want to rethink that. The Dallas Cowboys find themselves in an undesirable position coming out of their bye week. They saw all three NFC East rivals post wins while they were idle, and now they sit at 2-3 with a lot of work to be done to make it back to the playoffs. What happens is mostly in their own hands, as the last two losses were almost certainly due to their own mistakes. But they can also use any help they can get in the form of other teams having their own issues. Fortunately for them, there is a whole lot of that...

Ezekiel Elliott, NFLPA to file for injunction in New York while waiting on 5th Circuit decision

Ezekiel Elliott, NFLPA to file for injunction in New York while waiting on 5th Circuit decision

The Ezekiel Elliott/NFLPA legal team is moving ahead with another motion for an injunction. On this past Friday, Ezekiel Elliott, through the team representing him from the NFLPA, had asked the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals for an en banc rehearing after losing a decision to the NFL about his six-game suspension. That court, in a split decision (2-1), ruled that the Texas court didn’t have jurisdiction and vacated Elliott’s injunction and sent the case back to be dismissed. The result of that decision left Elliott back on the NFL’s suspended list effective immediately. While Elliott...

Cowboys miss out, NaVorro Bowman signs with the Raiders

Cowboys miss out, NaVorro Bowman signs with the Raiders

There will be no free-agent addition to the Cowboys at linebacker this week. The Dallas Cowboys have been struggling at linebacker this season. Whether through injury or lack of quality depth, the position has been a sore spot. That’s why the Cowboys had hoped to bring in the recently-released NaVorro Bowman for a visit to see if the veteran would be a good fit. They won’t be able to do that now as Bowman signed a one-year deal with the Oakland Raiders. After being released by the San Francisco 49ers on Friday, the veteran linebacker is signing a one-year deal with the Oakland Raiders,...

Four moves the Cowboys need to make to improve their post-bye level of play

Four moves the Cowboys need to make to improve their post-bye level of play

Here are some things the Cowboys need to make sure to do. The Dallas Cowboys suffered through a pretty chaotic bye week, with players being released, players retiring, and players being suspended (or more accurately re-suspended). What the Cowboys really need is to get back on the football field, and when they do they need to up their game. The uneven 2-3 start is not going to cut it going forward. So here are four moves they need to make to help ensure success the rest of the way. Give more time to Brice Butler at the expense of Terrance Williams: Yes, the dropped pass that led to a...

The good news and the bad news about the Cowboys playoff position in the NFC

It’s a mixed bag for the Cowboys coming off a bye. Week 6 in the NFL has (mostly) come and gone, and with it the Dallas Cowboy have gotten by their bye. They swing back into action with a game against the winlesss San Francisco 49ers this Sunday looking to rekindle their playoff push. At 2-3, they are behind the pack... but just how far back are they? That’s where you get the good news and the bad news. Let’s start with the bad news. The Cowboys trail the 5-1 Eagles in the NFC East. That’s not an insurmountable lead this early in the season, especially since the Cowboys have two...

Who have been the offensive and defensive standouts for the Cowboys through five games? The Dallas Cowboys have just completed their bye week. The team sits with a record of 2-3 and it’s possible that running back Ezekiel Elliott will be out for six games. The Cowboys need to find a way to get some wins quick, but it won’t be easy.

2017 Dallas Cowboys rookie class falling short of previous rookie classes - so far

2017 Dallas Cowboys rookie class falling short of previous rookie classes - so far

A look at how each of the rookies has contributed and how the 2017 rookie class measures up overall. The 2017 Cowboys draft class has gotten off to a so-so start into its first NFL season. Things started off on the wrong foot almost from the beginning with this year's rookies. Jourdan Lewis missed most of training camp with hamstring issues, seventh-round defensive tackles Joey Ivie and Jordan Carrell didn't even make the practice squad after final roster cuts, and sixth-rounder Marquez White has been languishing on the practice squad despite obvious personnel issues at CB on the 53-man...

10 thoughts on the NFL: Aaron Rodgers hurt, Navorro Bowman to the Cowboys?

The Cowboys weren’t playing, but there was plenty of interesting things going on in the NFL. The Dallas Cowboys were on a bye this week, but there was a lot of football action going on around the league. Here are 10 observations from this week’s action... 1. Hate to say it, but the Eagles are good It was painful to watch the Philadelphia Eagles play so well on Thursday night. They’ve been a team that had a strong defensive front, but were sketchy on the back end and didn’t have an offense that was consistent enough to be a winning football team. But things have changed.

Report: Former 49ers linebacker NaVorro Bowman is going to visit the Dallas Cowboys

Want another linebacker in Dallas? NoVorro Bowman is making a visit. The Dallas Cowboys have had some issues with their linebacker corps this season. Anthony Hitchens was hurt (he’s back now), Jaylon Smith had to start and has been less than great, and then Sean Lee got hurt (he should be back soon). As a result, Cowboys fans everywhere raised their eyebrows when the San Francisco 49ers released NaVorro Bowman this past Friday. The “let’s sign (recently released big name)” argument normally is a bit of a hollow one, but this one certainly has some merit. If you’re interested in...
