Cowboys roster update: Randy Gregory & Xavier Woods have “a chance” at playing in Seattle, Tyree Robinson released

The Cowboys owner updated the injury situation on a couple of starters, and the Cowboys made a roster move.

The Dallas Cowboys put forth one of their more impressive defensive performances last Sunday night, and they did it without the help of some key players.

Randy Gregory, David Irving, and Xavier Woods are all potential starters who missed the home opener, and while Irving is only halfway through his suspension it appears that the other two might be able to play this week when the...

NFL Week 3 Power Rankings: Cowboys victory gives them a slight boost

People still aren’t ready to believe yet.

So, fresh off a Week 2 win over the Giants, how do the Cowboys look to the rest of the NFL world? Well, it’s a mixed-bag, but let’s just say outsiders aren’t hopping on the bandwagon just yet. Yes, the win over New York did raise the Cowboys standing in the Power Rankings this week, but they are still mainly toward the back-end of the 1-1 teams. Let’s dive in.

ESPN:

17. Dallas Cowboys

2018 record: 1-1

Week 2 ranking: 20

Brice Butler in January: Wouldn’t mind being back in Dallas but there’s gonna have to be some changes made

Have the changes been made in Dallas that Brice Butler wanted?

The Cowboys played their last game on NBC which features the green zone, and they may have just now entered the twilight zone. Brice Butler is back in Dallas.

It makes sense for the Cowboys to bring back Brice Butler. He’s performed well within this offense and he has great chemistry with Dak Prescott. He spoke to the Dallas Morning News about this, and when you look at what he said specifically, it really is a no-brainer to...

Cowboys bring back Butler as 7th wide receiver

Brice Butler, who spent parts of three seasons with Dallas, signed with the Cowboys on Tuesday. Coach Jason Garrett said adding a seventh wide receiver was "just to be deeper there. If he's available, he's someone we like."

[UPDATE]: Brice Butler to sign with Cowboys on Tuesday, posts on social media that he’s officially back

It seems to be happening.

Over the weekend word broke that the Cowboys were looking into bringing back a wide receiver that they moved on from this past offseason. No, not that one, but this one... Brice Butler.

As today is officially the first day of Week 3 if a move was going to be made it would make sense that it would come on now. As fate would have it, a report surfaced that Butler will sign with the Cowboys on Tuesday.

A source tells @NBCDFWSports @NBCDFW that Brice Butler will...

Crunching stats: Eight things that show us the Cowboys are on the right trajectory

The improvement from the first game was drastic - and there is room for even more.

My, things feel so much better after the Dallas Cowboys beat the New York Giants by a 20-13 score that made things look a lot closer than they actually were. It is a lot more fun to dive into the stats from the game to pull out some things that we can learn from. Stat sheet scouting is fraught with peril, but with a little judicious interpretation, we can still gather things to inform us going forward.

After the first two weeks of the 2018 season, Cowboys second in the league in sacks

This Cowboys defense looks legit.

This Dallas Cowboys defense is good.

We wanted to believe it heading into the season and now after two impressive showings, this is becoming more and more a reality. After holding rookie running back sensation Saquon Barkley to only 28 yards rushing and All-World receiving spectacle Odell Beckham Jr. to just four catches for 51 yards, the Cowboys defense has taken a stand. Oh yeah, they also sacked Eli Manning six times.

There are a lot of reasons to feel...

Here are a few waiver wire targets to pick up ahead of week two in the NFL.

Quarterback

Ryan Fitzpatrick, owned in 23% of Yahoo leagues

Ride the hot hand again until it turns super cold. Fitzy is on fire as he passed for four touchdowns and over 400 yards on Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles mind you! This week he gets the Steelers defense that is giving up the sixth-most points to quarterbacks. Fitzy is your man, never forget that.

The Morning After: Cowboys unleash full defensive attack on Giants – Bob Sturm, The Athletic
The Sturminator breaks down the Cowboys defense-fueled victory over the Giants, noting that scheme, rather than winning one-on-one battles, generated most of the team's six sacks.

Of the six sacks, very few of them were simply a man beating a man. Rather, like Carolina last week, if you can cause confusion about who is coming from where, you can get a free...

BTB’s Cowboys podcasts: Recapping the win over the Giants

Sunday was a good day.

After Week 1, Cowboys fans were sad. After Week 2, they are feeling pretty good. A win over division rival New York and first place in the NFC East (on a tiebreaker) will do that. So what could be better than reliving the win again? Good thing you agree, because today’s edition of OchoLive, one of BTB’s excellent podcasts, does just that. Join RJ and Cowboys fans everywhere as we discuss the 20-13 win.

Landon Collins had to eat a lot of crow after the Cowboys beat him and he wasn’t happy about it

Challenge completed.

New York Giants safety Landon Collins did an awful lot of talking last week.

Collins challenged the quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys, something he’s not very good at historically, and it did not go very well for him when Dak Prescott helped ensure a 20-13 victory for America’s Team on Sunday night.

Asked about his infamous (and now obviously incorrect) words after the game, Landon retreated. This is one of the smaller giants that you’ll ever find.

Cowboys Game Ball of the Week: Dak Prescott earns it, but not through his stats

It was a mixed-bag for the Cowboys QB, but his determination wins out.

If you think that the problems surrounding Dak Prescott are suddenly solved, it would be wise to think again. Prescott’s statistical line is not one that will likely win a lot of football games over time. He only threw for 160 yards, and 64 of that came on one play. There was a stretch in the middle of the game where things bogged down, it wasn’t all Prescott’s fault, but still, the Cowboys offense is surely still a...

Five plays the shaped the Cowboys game against the New York Giants

Now that’s more like it! Which five plays were the most important?

The Cowboys offense rebounded in a big way, scoring enough points to enjoy a defense that was stout for roughly 3.75 quarters of the game. In the end, Dallas walked out with a 20-13 win that put them in first place in the NFC East after both Philadelphia and Washington lost earlier in the day. It was a convincing win despite the close score, and here are five plays that defined the game.

Report: Ex-Steelers QB Landry Jones working out with Cowboys

The Cowboys could be looking for an upgrade behind Dak Prescott. Former Steelers backup Landry Jones is working out in Dallas on Monday, Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram tweets. Jones, 29, has not participated in a known workout since being cut by the Steelers after the preseason. He backed up Ben Roethlisberger for the past three seasons, playing in Pittsburgh for five total, but couldn’t beat out Joshua Dobbs for the veteran-reserve spot in Pittsburgh alongside Mason...
