Backup QB Nathan Peterman, who entered the game in the third quarter in Allen's place, Peterman quickly led a drive for the go-ahead touchdown, but then threw an interception that Houston returned for the game-winning score, and then threw another pick on his next possession. The other loss for Jacksonville (3-2), against Tennessee. If it is, I don't doubt there will probably come a time when the Cowboys need to make a tough decision.
"It's definitely the best we've played from executing on offence and taking advantage of when the defence is giving us turnovers and good field position", Prescott said. "That's what they say now but if it's a close game, I know good and well Marinelli is going to be sending me out there & putting me through the ringer". Flowers replaces left tackle Josh Wells, who suffered a groin injury this week and was placed on injured reserve.
Jacksonville released running back Dimitri Flowers in a corresponding transaction.
The Cowboys will win if: The Cowboys defense scores or sets up 2 easy FGs, or their defense can hold the Jags to a single digit total.More news: Thierry Henry confirmed as Monaco's new coach + Reactions
"The offense, we've struggled this year. These next three weeks, not looking ahead or anything, but to get to the bye week are important with the amount of guys we have down". Bortles has shot at being fifth in National Football League history with at least 375 yards passing in three straight games. But inefficiency throwing is the biggest reason Dallas has a losing record and questions inside and outside the locker room about play-calling. The worst of the offensive issues have been on the road.
"We're just going to monitor the situation as it goes", Marrone said. The offensive line continues to be solid, even minus Travis Fredrick and with Tyron Smith not playing his best. We have to continue to build on those. That's usually not a good thing for running backs.
The Cowboys would improve to 3-3 on the season with today's win, while the Jaguars would drop to 3-3. Look for Bortles to get a few more designed runs to get himself into a rhythm, providing a few first extra downs. Randy Gregory had his first sack since his return from substance-abuse suspensions that sidelined the Cowboys defensive end for 30 of 32 games the previous two seasons.

Charles was a standout at Texas and won a national championship with the Longhorns as a freshman during the 2005 season. Running back T.J. Yeldon will get the bulk of the carries, Charles will spell him as he gets into football shape.
