RG III's fall hard to fathom two years ago

IRVING, Texas -- Was it just two years ago Robert Griffin III shredded the Dallas Cowboys in the Washington Redskins' 38-31 win on Thanksgiving? Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones wasn't quite sure himself when he talked about Griffin on NFL Network Wednesday morning. But let's take you back to Nov. 22, 2012, at AT&T Stadium. It was Griffin's first game against the Cowboys and he completed 19 of 27 passes for 304 yards with four touchdowns and an interception.

Can you watch the Jaguars vs. Giants game on Sunday?

Some of Florida and most of New York are still showing the Jaguars game, but little else of the country will see it. The Jacksonville Jaguars are hosting the New York Giants and FOX is showing it in all the areas you'd think they would. Thanks to 506 Sports for the easy-to-read map. The green represents markets where the Jaguars-Cowboys game will be on. Jacksonville is (of course) showing it, as is Orlando and New York. The national game is New Orleans vs. Pittsburgh, which makes sense, but Tampa Bay is playing Atlanta vs. Arizona for NFC South reasons, I guess. The announcing for...

Assessing Robert Griffin III’s future and trade value

Brandon Carr moves on from Odell Beckham Jr.'s catch

IRVING, Texas -- It was the catch seen and heard around the NFL. Possibly the world. The New York Giants Odell Beckham made this unreal, one-handed leaping grab while falling into the end zone on Sunday night. The man covering Beckham on the play was Cowboys cornerback Brandon Carr who was falling down himself trying to defend it. "You play long enough, you will have seen it all," Carr said. "You have your share of plays and give up plays and you will be apart of history whatever the case may be.

Dwayne Harris looking more like old self

IRVING, Texas - Dwayne Harris turned in his best performance of the season against the New York Giants. The Cowboys could use a similar performance Thursday against Philadelphia, which has one of the best special teams units in the league. Harris returned four punts for 68 yards with a long of 20. He also made a nice tackle on Odell Beckham Jr. on a punt return and downed another punt inside the 10. He has only two punt returns of more than 20 yards this season -- he had eight in 2012 -- but he showed signs against the Giants of finding a rhythm.

Thanksgiving memory doesn't fade for Jason Garrett

IRVING, Texas – Jason Garrett’s signature moment as the Dallas Cowboys’ quarterback turns 20 years old on Thursday. Is it that long ago? Not to Garrett. The memories of that 42-31 win against Brett Favre and the Green Bay Packers at Texas Stadium on Nov. 24, 1994, remain fresh. He can recall the plays in his mind, the good and the bad, as if it were yesterday. “I think it’s probably a lot like life,” Garrett said.
