Malcolm Jenkins replaces Landon Collins in 2019 Pro Bowl

Well deserved recognition. Philadelphia Eagles starting safety and defensive captain Malcolm Jenkins is going to the 2019 Pro Bowl after all.

Lessons learned from the Cowboys’ season finale against the Giants

It was not the game we expected. It was so much more. Wait a minute. This was a meaningless game. The Dallas Cowboys could not change their playoff situation one whit. The New York Giants could only affect their draft position. The biggest priority for Dallas was to protect banged-up starters and not get any significant injuries. It had all the makings of a dull, conservative contest. Color us completely and absolutely wrong. It was exciting, and in many ways totally out of character for the Cowboys as they traded leads down the stretch before coming away with a 36-35 win. Here are some...
