Cowboys get a first down with a paper-thin margin

Fans could never forget Steratore after this season, when he made waves by using an index card to measure a first down for the Cowboys against the Raiders in Week 15. It was a Dak Prescott quarterback sneak on a crucial fourth-and-1 that was close — too close to call without a prop.

Steratore said after the game that he didn’t need the index card to make the first down call. He just used it to confirm that he had judged the position of the ball correctly.

Didn’t use the card to make the final decision, Steratore said, via Mac Engel of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. The final decision was made visually. The card was used (as) nothing more than a reaffirmation of what was visually done.

We’re going to be an exciting team this year, Prescott said on Showtime Boxing Cheap Jerseys From China over the weekend. A lot of new faces. I think that’s what you’re going to find. You’re going to find a lot of new guys that we have on this team, within this organization, that can make plays. [We] plan on surprising a lot of people.

Much of the consternation in Dallas comes from the Cowboys jettisoning Dez Bryant and losing Jason Witten to retirement. Coming off a down year, how will Prescott respond to losing his top two targets?

Bad teams tend to abandon the run late in games, but I don’t think that’s a concern for McCoy, who has always excelled as a pass-catcher (59 grabs last year). What I’m more worried about is the Bills’ O line, which could be in rough shape Cheap Jerseys In Toronto following the offseason losses of Eric Wood (retired), Richie Incognito (released after retiring and un-retiring) and Cordy Glenn (traded to Cincinnati).

Who else would be allowed to throw a huge inflatable ball straight at Julia Roberts’ face in a game called — wait for it — Face Balls? I felt bad about that one, he says of the late-night bit, though he’s trying not to laugh even while he says it. It was a really good smack! Roberts emerged intact; others haven’t been quite so lucky. We tackled snowmen on the rooftop once with Faith Hill, and she broke her collarbone or something.

Another key Patriots player back on the field is receiver Julian Edelman, who sat out last season after suffering a right knee injury a week before the final exhibition game.
