Fantasy Boom Drew Brees: Picked up right where he left off - 26 for 34, 358 yards, and 6 touchdowns. Yeah, it was against the Lions, but that's just silly. Joe Flacco: Ray Rice was supposed to be the big point scorer for Baltimore this week. He was good, but Rice didn't match Flacco's output (307 yards and three touchdowns). Thomas Jones: Might have to slow our roll on that Leon Washington talk. Looks like Jones could still be a No. 1 fantasy back after all (107 yards, two touchdowns)

In one of those days only a Cowboys hater could love, Dallas lost cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones to an indefinite suspension, traded for a player the 'Boys really do not need, and put punter Mat McBriar on injured reserve. Hey, at least there was no griping from Terrell Owens. Jones was suspended for at least four games by the NFL yesterday for violating the league's personal conduct policy. Commissioner Roger Goodell will determine the length of the suspension after the Cowboys' game in Washington Nov. 16. The trade brought wide receiver Roy Williams from the hapless Detroit Lions in return for a first-round pick in 2009, plus third- and sixth-round picks that year.

IRVING, Texas - When it comes to stirring up muck, the Eagles have clearly had the upper hand this week. Heck, the Cowboys have barely put up a fight. And that's just fine with Dallas head coach Wade Phillips. "You know, what tells is the game itself," he observed wryly. "We all know that. The verbal wars don't do a whole lot. It's the war on the field that makes the difference. Hopefully we'll respond that way. " The latest incident came when Dave Spadaro, director of the Eagles' official Web site, posted a video of himself spitting on the Texas star at midfield of Cowboys Stadium before last Sunday's game.

Brad Johnson's aim was off and the boobirds were roaring at Texas Stadium. Somehow, the Dallas Cowboys pulled out of their midseason slump anyway. Johnson made up for several missed chances at touchdowns by throwing one to newcomer Roy Williams at the end of a drive sustained by four defensive penalties, and the much-maligned Dallas defense made it hold up for a 13-9 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers yesterday afternoon. "Losing was not an option," Cowboys receiver Terrell Owens said.

For an undrafted free agent such as the Cowboys' Miles Austin to make the Pro Bowl is the stuff of movies. Indeed, Austin was at the movies when he found out he made the Pro Bowl. "I was watching Sherlock Holmes and I got a private call," Austin said. "I'm like, 'I can't pick this up.' I waited, I checked the messages and it was [Cowboys owner Jerry Jones'] secretary saying to give him a call back. So I kind of figured it out at that point. " The rest of the NFL has figured out that Austin can't be overlooked anymore.

The young backup who comes from nowhere to make big play after big play for Dallas is the storyline made famous by Tony Romo back in 2006. Now, he's leading Miles Austin down that path. Austin proved his incredible performance in his first career start was no fluke by catching six more passes for 171 yards and two long touchdowns, sending host Dallas to a 37-21 victory over Atlanta yesterday that the Cowboys hope shows they're no fluke, either. Dallas (4-2) had been alternating wins and losses, needing overtime to beat Kansas City last weekend.

Almost from the moment he woke up yesterday morning, Aaron Glenn knew it was T.O.'s week. The first clue came from the morning talk show playing innocently in the background as the Dallas Cowboys' cornerback was getting ready for work. "Kelly [Ripa] and Regis [Philbin] are talking about the game," he said. "The TV was on and I looked up and there they were talking about it. That tells you it's a huge game, and not just for Terrell. " No, not just for Terrell Owens. The Cowboys are 2-1, a half-game behind the 3-1, NFC East-leading Eagles, setting up a huge early season showdown between the bitter division rivals Sunday afternoon at Lincoln Financial Field.

How They Match Up Eagles offense vs. Cowboys defense Quarterback Donovan McNabb was sacked and fumbled on the opening play of the first meeting between the teams, and that was a sign of things to come for the Eagles in what ended up as a 38-17 Dallas rout, the Cowboys' most lopsided win in Philadelphia since the 1998 season. After running 19 plays for 113 yards and a touchdown during the next two series, the Eagles' offense ran 27 plays for 92 yards and a field goal on their next five series and fell behind, 35-10, after three quarters.
