One of the biggest keys to success for NFL teams is continuity, primarily at general manager and head coach.
"It definitely was a message of support", veteran defensive end Tyrone Crawford said. There are three games to go before he is eligible to return to the Cowboys' lineup for a Christmas Eve game at home against the Seattle Seahawks.
When Los Angeles hired Gus Bradley as its defensive coordinator this offseason, there were some rumblings about if that decision was wise given his tenure with the Jaguars. I want to say it the best I can. "So I think you keep going". With the increased number of contested passes, an increase in interceptions has followed: Prescott has thrown five interceptions in the last two games, more than he threw in all of 2016.

"Well, I think that again, I've got a lot of optimism for our talent", Jones said. They won the whole thing five, six, seven years ago.

Those are different muscles those guys are using, that they're not used to using. I feel good about our staff. I'm not equivocating about it. This is not the negative vote of confidence at all. It's the way Jones has always been as Cowboys owner, of course: an indefatigable exhorter. He missed a kick Thursday and had to leave the game, forcing punter Drew Kaser to take on the placekicking duties.
"We're in a funk or whatever you want to call it", Prescott said.
