Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant was caught with his pants down, and has been banned from an upscale Dallas shopping mall. A police statement says officers working off-duty Saturday as security at NorthPark Center encountered Bryant and three companions wearing drooping pants. According to the statement, when the officers asked the four to pull up their trousers because their underwear was showing, Bryant launched into a profanity-laced tirade that prompted the officers to escort the four from the mall.

The Eagles-Cowboys rivalry heated up Sunday night even before the kickoff. Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins and Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant were involved in a confrontation during warm-ups. They had three rounds of an apparent heated discussion during a 1-minute, 53-second video captured by Comcast SportsNet. Other players and coaches got between the high-profile players twice. During the first encounter, Jenkins walked away after about 20 seconds. Then he turned around as Bryant walked toward him. At that point, Eagles assistant defensive backs coach Todd Lyght and Cowboys wide receiver Terrance Williams stood between them.

ARLINGTON, Texas - Whether he was catching the ball or drawing a slew of defenders, Dallas receiver Dez Bryant was a huge presence but it wasn't enough as the Eagles beat the Cowboys, 33-27, in overtime at AT&T Stadium. Bryant started quickly, making two catches for 57 yards in the Cowboys' opening 11-play, 93-yard drive that ended with Matt Cassel's 5-yard touchdown pass to Cole Beasley. Last week Bryant returned from a broken foot that sidelined him for five games, including the Cowboys' 20-10 win over the Eagles in Week 2. During last week's 13-12 loss to Seattle, he had two receptions for 12 yards.

IRVING, Texas - He may not be 100 percent yet, but the expected presence of two-time Pro Bowl receiver Dez Bryant should give the Dallas Cowboys' sluggish offense a boost when they host the Eagles Sunday at AT&T Stadium. Bryant suffered a broken foot in the season-opening 27-26 win over the New York Giants. He caught five passes for 48 yards before suffering the injury in the fourth quarter. Even without Bryant, the Cowboys beat the Eagles the next week, 20-10. The Cowboys (2-5) lost Tony Romo with a fractured clavicle that game and haven't won since.

DALLAS WILL BE without Dez Bryant for possibly two months as he recovers from a broken bone in his right foot. The statistics say that the Cowboys are missing the NFL's leading touchdown scorer among wide receivers from a year ago. Quarterback Tony Romo sees it as something much deeper. "He's the heartbeat of our team emotionally," Romo said. "He brings energy every day. We're gonna miss that. We have to pick it up around him. " Bryant's injury is the primary reason Terrance Williams has been one of the most popular waiver wire pickups of the fantasy week.

FIGHTS BREAK out all the time in training camp. What's different about the scuffle between Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant and cornerback Tyler Patmon is the team is publicizing it. In a big way. The Pokes posted a video of the skirmish on their website under the headline "Fight Club. " They even have follow-up comments from the two players. "It's just brothers," said Patmon. "Brothers fight sometimes. Cornerback and receivers. [There's] always history between them. It's bound to happen and it's part of being a family.

The most important player (arguably) on the Eagles defense didn't earn his starting spot until two weeks ago. He spent almost all of the offseason rehabbing a broken ankle and wasn't 100 percent back until three weeks ago. He signed a one-year, incentive-laden contract in March and has never started an entire season. Little is guaranteed in the NFL, but he has spent his career toiling in the shadows of others. He isn't flashy and speaks softly, which is probably why his story has been undersold.

THE ATTORNEY for Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant asked prosecutors Tuesday not to pursue charges against his client, who was arrested after allegedly attacking his mother during an argument. "Did a family disagreement occur? Yes," attorney Royce West said. "Did Dez Bryant commit family violence against his mother? No. " Police arrested Bryant on July 16, 2 days after his mother, Angela Bryant, called 911 to complain her son was assaulting her. Authorities said they found her with a swollen wrist and thumb and bruising on her upper arms.

WHEN VANCE WORLEY took the mound for the Phillies in the top of the ninth inning against the Rockies on Saturday, he wasn't just relieving Jose Contreras. According to reader Dennis Orlandini, of Irvington, N.J. and Spring Hill, Fla., the righthander became the 1,000th player to play for the Phillies since the post-war 1946 season. The first player, according to Orlandini, was Johnny Wyrostek, who appeared with the Phils in April of '46. Orlandini wrote that among the documentation he used to support his findings was retrosheet.

(Teams listed in predicted order of finish) NFC EAST Washington Redskins Last season: 9-7 (Won division; lost to Green Bay in wild-card) Coach: Jay Gruden (13-19 in two seasons) Norman invasion: The Redskins were 25th in pass defense and went out and got Josh Norman from Carolina, the best available cornerback. When you share a division with Dez Bryant, Odell Beckham, and Paul Turner (a little sarcasm), having a shutdown corner is crucial. Outlook: If Sam Bradford was miffed when the Eagles drafted his replacement, imagine how Kirk Cousins feels.

THERE ARE a lot of productive wide receivers, a direct result of all the rules changes protecting both receivers and their quarterbacks. Now if the Eagles could just get on board the WR bus, maybe Sam Bradford could become more fantasy relevant. Keenan Allen, Chargers: Fully recovered from the lacerated kidney that ended his season in Week 8 - and what a season it was shaping up to be. Allen was on a pace for 134 catches and had double-digit targets in five of the seven full games he played.

The NFL is so unpredictable and yet we still try to predict it, especially at this time of year when the countdown to training camp is so close. It is an impossible exercise in a high-speed collision sport. Just ask the Dallas Cowboys. They might have been good enough to win a second straight division title with Tony Romo last season, but they could barely win a game without him. Romo, after being limited to two complete games by a left collarbone that was fractured twice, is back and the Cowboys are again a popular pick to win the NFC East, the division that is unquestionably the most difficult to predict.

HALF OF the remaining fantasy owners still in competition would like to send a very large stocking for Odell Beckham Jr. to hang by his chimney this Christmas Eve. After being very good for just about the entire season, he has landed on the naughty list for getting suspended during fantasy championship week. Santa oughta fill that baby with plenty of coal, now that the NFL has upheld its one-game ban given to Beckham after a series of altercations with Carolina's Josh Norman; the most egregious being a cheap helmet-to-helmet shot from a full sprint.

Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 15 of the 2015 season. Watch 'em roll Matt Stafford, QB, Lions at Saints. Stafford is a high-volume passer even against good secondaries, partly because the Lions can't run worth a darn. Expect Calvin Johnson to play a much bigger role in the Monday nighter as well. Denard Robinson, RB, Jaguars vs. Falcons. All indications are that T.J. Yeldon will miss this game with a knee injury, giving Robinson an opportunity to reprise his role as Jacksonville's dual-threat workhorse.

Most fantasy leagues will contest their final regular season games in Week 13, with the postseason playing out over the following three weeks. As I say this time every year, I hope you haven't scheduled your championship game for Week 17, unless you just enjoy playing without your Patriots, Panthers, Broncos and others with little to nothing at stake and who will inevitably be resting their stars in the finale. But for those vying for a playoff berth, it's crunch time. And by crunch time, I'm not referring to the sound Tony Romo's shoulder made when he was slammed to the turf and millions of Cowboys fans threw turkey legs at their TVs. This is the time of year when true fantasy heroes emerge.

TAMPA, Fla. - When the schedule makers drew up this year's list of NFL games, few probably thought that after nine of them that the Eagles and Tampa Bay Buccaneers would be on equal footing. The Eagles were coming off consecutive 10-win seasons with high hopes, while the Bucs went 2-14 and, despite drafting quarterback Jameis Winston from Florida State with the first overall pick, still seemed a distance away from respectability. Yet when the Bucs visit Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday, both teams will have 4-5 marks after Tampa Bay's comeback, 10-6 win over the luckless Dallas Cowboys Sunday at Raymond James Stadium.

THE FIRST PASS interference call against Byron Maxwell on the drive that allowed the Dallas Cowboys to extend Sunday night's game to overtime, the contact seemed ticky-tacky, but maybe you could see throwing a flag, sort of. The second one seemed beyond reasonable explanation, other than that Dez Bryant's leap for the ball looked awkward, and maybe the assumption was that somehow Maxwell must have impeded Bryant, before Bryant leaped into Maxwell...

ON THE EAGLES' game-winning overtime touchdown drive Sunday night, DeMarco Murray runs of 20 and 9 yards helped put the Birds in position for the 41-yard clinching touchdown pass to Jordan Matthews. Both run plays went to the right, where Dennis Kelly was playing right tackle for the first time since 2012. Lane Johnson's first-ever start at left tackle, Johnson matched up mostly against Greg Hardy and got most of the attention, but Kelly, stepping in off the bench for his first start of the season at any position, played a strong game under no less daunting conditions.
