Cowboys' Jones: 'I shouldn't be this frustrated'

  Cowboys' Jones: 'I shouldn't be this frustrated' Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones didn't mince his words Sunday after his team once again fell short against a top contender, losing by a score of 13-9 to the New England Patriots. "With the makeup of this team, I shouldn't be this frustrated," said Jones, according to team writer David Helman. The 6-5 Cowboys sit atop the NFC East through 12 weeks but are arguably far from the level of the top teams in a stacked conference. Dallas' six wins have"With the makeup of this team, I shouldn't be this frustrated," said Jones, according to team writer David Helman.

Tied at 10 at the half, Houston’s offense came through with big play after big play in the second half.

Chicago quarterback Mitchell Trubisky threw for three touchdowns and ran for another Thursday to lead the Bears to a 31-24 NFL victory over the reeling Dallas Cowboys . The Cowboys ' third straight defeat dropped them to 6-7, although they remained atop the woeful NFC East division.

The Chicago Bears hosted the Dallas Cowboys on “Thursday Night Football” to start Week 14. Both teams entered at 6-6, but this seemed to be more of a must win for the Bears. They have little shot in the NFC North while Dallas is in first place in the NFC East.

It sure looked like Chicago wanted this game more. After the Cowboys opened with a long 17-play touchdown drive, the Bears went into domination mode in front of their home crowd at Soldier Field.

When all was said and done, Dallas laid flat as Chicago won by the score of 31-24 in a game that was not as close as the final score indicated. Mitchell Trubisky continued his stellar play. Jason Garrett was without answers.

Cowboys falter again as Bills inch closer to playoffs

  Cowboys falter again as Bills inch closer to playoffs The Dallas Cowboys did nothing to cool head coach Jason Garrett's hot seat on Thanksgiving Day while falling 26-15 at home to the Buffalo Bills. Dallas lost for the third time in four games, days after owner Jerry Jones called out Garrett and his staff. Buffalo, meanwhile, inched closer to locking up an AFC playoff berth by improving to 9-3. Beginning games slowly has hindered the Cowboys all season, but they actually started strong on Thursday. Their offense marched down the field on the game's opening possession, capping the drive with an eight-yard touchdown pass from Dak Prescott to Jason Witten.However, it was all downhill from there for Dallas.

The Chicago Bears needed a big win tonight, and with their strongest all-around effort of the season, came away with a big win on the road against a playoff-caliber team. A strong and creative effort on offense and an opportunistic defense leads to our list of winners and losers .

These are among the biggest winners and losers from Chicago’s seven-point victory over a free-falling Cowboys team on “Thursday Night Football.”

Winner: Mitchell Trubisky, quarterback, Bears

We gave Trubisky a lot of flack early Thursday night after he threw a horrible interception near the end zone. But much like what he did on Thanksgiving Day, Trubisky responded big time as the game progressed.

He finished the first half completing 12-of-17 passes for 126 yards with two touchdowns. All four of Chicago’s possessions before halftime ultimately entered Dallas’ end of the field.

It got better for the North Carolina product. Trubisky added a beautiful touchdown run in the second half and finished with four scores. This kid is playing great football, and it has the Bears thinking of a late-season playoff push.

Loser: Amari Cooper, wide receiver, Cowboys

Cooper is dealing with injuries. That has been the case all season. Despite this, he’s shown an ability to play through the injuries and perform extremely well. That has not been the case recently. Just two weeks ago, the Pro Bowler was held without a catch in a narrow loss to the New England Patriots.

Cooper’s performance Thursday evening was similar, at least early on. The impending free agent caught 6-of-8 targets for 83 yards and a touchdown. That’s the good news. The bad news? Most of that production came in garbage time, including the touchdown.

Cooper needs to put together complete games for his Cowboys to be successful over the final three weeks of the season. It’s that simple.

NFL Playoff Picture: Ravens jump Patriots for top spot in AFC

  NFL Playoff Picture: Ravens jump Patriots for top spot in AFC In a wild Week 13, a handful of teams saw playoff hopes take big blows, while others strengthened a hold on spots for January. Here's how the standings look after Sunday's games. AFC The Houston Texans upsetting the New England Patriots on Sunday night was an early Christmas gift to the Baltimore Ravens, who jumped to the top of the AFC after seeing off the San Francisco 49ers. The Ravens, who own the head-to-head tiebreaker over the Patriots, now control their fate with four games left.While the Patriots remain two games ahead of the Texans and Kansas City Chiefs (their opponent next week), the Buffalo Bills are now just one game behind the reigning champions.

The Cowboys have now won two-straight games after beating the Bears , 31-17. Here are five things that stood out in the Cowboys win on Sunday night. The 75O: Winners and losers from the Rams preseason game.

Winner: Ezekiel Elliott, running back, Cowboys

The Cowboys’ offense still should run through Elliott. That was the mantra for Jason Garrett and Co. during an awesome game-opening touchdown drive. Elliott ran the ball eight times in a 75-yard drive that culminated in a 1-yard scamper for Elliott.

While the rest of his Cowboys struggled to do anything on either side of the ball, Elliott was at the top of his game.

He finished with 93 total yards on 21 touches before the Cowboys had to go pass-heavy in what ended up being a three-score game in the final quarter. If there’s anything Dallas can point to here, it’s that Elliott might be ready to make a major impact over the final three games of the season.

Loser: Tarik Cohen, running back, Bears

This has been the case all season. For some reason, Cohen has not been a part of Matt Nagy’s offense. The explosive former All-Pro running back entered Week 14 having put up just 456 yards on 101 attempts. It did not get any better against Dallas.

Three takeaways from Cowboys' loss to Bears: Jason Garrett's seat gets hotter; Dallas defense goes cold

  Three takeaways from Cowboys' loss to Bears: Jason Garrett's seat gets hotter; Dallas defense goes cold The Bears embarrassed the Cowboys on Thursday night in a game that could have big ripple effects in Dallas. Here is what we learned.With the Cowboys coach under pressure from owner/general manager Jerry Jones to deliver at least another division title, Dallas (6-7) remains in first place in the NFC East going into Week 15, up a head-to-head tiebreaker on the Eagles (5-7), who host the last game of Week 14 on Monday night against the Giants.

As the rest of the Bears offense was buzzing, Cohen was nowhere to be found. He finished the evening with 31 total yards on nine touches. David Montgomery continues to get a bulk of the touches. Meanwhile, Trubisky is focusing more on Allen Robinson. All of this has led to a major regression from the 24-year-old Cohen.

Winner: Kevin Toliver, cornerback, Bears

Where to start here? Tolliver only saw action Thursday because starting Bears corner Prince Amukamara was inactive to injury. Toliver's first consistent playing time of the season (three defensive snaps up to this point) included an assignment against Cooper.

Shadowing Cooper throughout the game, this former LSU standout yielded just two catches in the first half. It wasn’t until garbage time that Cooper started to get going against Toliver.

We knew he had talent in college. Off-field issues derailed a once-promising career. The hope now is that Toliver has matured off the field and is ready to make an impact. He looks darn good on the field.

Loser: Dak Prescott, quarterback, Cowboys

Downright disastrous. We can spin it any way and still draw the conclusion that Prescott was not ready for prime time Thursday night.

The contract-year quarterback completed 27-of-49 passes for 334 yards with one touchdown. He was inaccurate throughout the evening, failed to lead Dallas to success on third down and just wasn’t himself.

Bears' Nagy: Roquan Smith's pec injury 'doesn't look good for him'

  Bears' Nagy: Roquan Smith's pec injury 'doesn't look good for him' Chicago Bears linebacker Roquan Smith's pectoral injury suffered in Thursday's win over the Dallas Cowboys "does not look good for him," head coach Matt Nagy said postgame. Smith, the eighth overall pick in the 2018 draft, left the prime-time matchup in the first quarter and didn't return. He entered the game with 98 tackles, two sacks, and an interception. Smith, the eighth overall pick in the 2018 draft, left the prime-time matchup in the first quarter and didn't return.

After dominating earlier this season, Prescott has now put up three touchdowns and two interceptions over the past three games. Ouch!

Winner: Allen Robinson, wide receiver, Bears

This veteran receiver is finding a nice flow with Trubisky in recent weeks. After scoring three touchdowns in his first 10 games of the season, Robinson has tallied four scores over the past three games.

That included game-changing first-half touchdowns against the Cowboys Thursday night.

While Robinson finished the night with five catches for 48 yards, he came up with big reception after big reception. That’s going to be huge for Trubisky moving forward.

Loser: Jason Garrett, head coach, Cowboys

The Cowboys’ brass has continually said it won’t fire Garrett in the middle of the season. This public stance is now going to be put to the test following Dallas’ horrendous showing Thursday night.

After driving down the field 75 yards in nearly nine minutes for a game-opening touchdown, the Cowboys’ offense was completely inept until garbage time.

At some point, it’s going to be apparent to owner Jerry Jones that Garrett isn’t the answer for the final three weeks of the season. He’s going to hang his hat on the Cowboys’ first-place status. But let’s get real. This team is 6-7 and going nowhere fast under Garrett.

Jerry Jones on Bears loss: 'Score didn't indicate how bad they beat us'

  Jerry Jones on Bears loss: 'Score didn't indicate how bad they beat us' Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones again expressed frustration over the state of his team following Thursday night's 31-24 loss to the Chicago Bears. "That score didn't indicate how bad they beat us tonight," said Jones, according to NFL Network's Andrew Siciliano. Dallas fell to 6-7 after suffering its third straight loss but remains atop the weak NFC East. A touchdown pass from Dak Prescott with 4:29 left in the game and a last-minute field goal flattered the Cowboys, who didn't put up any points in either the second or third quarter.
