Dallas Cowboys Jason Witten answers Anthem controversy

Dallas Cowboys Jason Witten answers Anthem controversy

The Dallas Cowboys (2-1) are coming from a 28-17 victory over the Arizona Cardinals in Week 3.

How impressive has this young man been?

The Dallas coach praised his team's ability to balance game preparation with multiple discussions over the Trump-fueled issues, despite the slow start. DE DeMarcus Lawrence had career-high three sacks against Arizona and leads National Football League with 6 1/2. This ranked 3rd overall, and more importantly allowed their offense to cover up for many of their defense's flaws. Their 3rd down efficiency has also dropped from 2016, going from a 42.3% conversion rate to 34.2% this season.

Rams RB Todd Gurley has quickly made everyone forget about his woeful sophomore season. Gurley has 241 yards rushing to 192 for Elliott. Gurley has also added an additional 140 yards and two TDs catching the ball out of the backfield.

Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten took the time to comment on the protests.

The Cowboys held the Rams to 131 yards in the first half, but the absence of All-Pro linebacker Sean Lee because of a hamstring injury showed up after halftime. If Lee can't play, Dallas will be stretched very think at linebacker as Justin Durant would play in his place next to Jaylon Smith. Meanwhile, Dallas has been a little up and down when it comes to reaching the end zone this season to date.

Now the second-year quarterbacks are set to face each other today on Prescott's home field with Goff off to the better start for the surprising Rams. This is certainly a matchup to watch.

Prescott earlier had a 10-yard scoring run that ended with a flip at the goal line as he tried to dive past three defenders. After a spike and a pair of incomplete passes, Prescott hit Elliott on a check down, but the Rams tackled the running back before he could get to the sticks for a turnover on downs. I can see the Rams putting some points up on an ailing Cowboys defense so the offense will absolutely need to carry some slack and light the scoreboard up.

More important for the Dallas Cowboys, following Sunday's 35-30 loss to the surprising Los Angeles Rams, it has them at a crossroads heading into an uncertain part of the season. It will be easy for the Dallas team to score, taking advantage of this fact.

Phillips is right. It is time for the Rams to be something they have not been for most of this season, "a really good defensive team". The Rams victories have come against two of the worst teams in the league, and in those victories, QB Jared Goff hasn't faced a legitimate pass rush or had to bring his team from behind. By missing Sunday's game, Lee has yet to play a full 16-game season since the Cowboys took him in the second round of the 2010 draft.

The Cowboys lead the all time series 17-15 and have won the last three meetings in 2011, 2013 and 2014.
