49er Defense Must Stop Run, Create Turnovers To Defeat Seattle

1-On-1 With Sean Lee: How Cowboys Star Is Healing His Hammy

The Pro Bowl-caliber middle linebacker who leads Dallas in tackles and interceptions is being told the hamstring pull he sustained in a week ago in that embarrassing loss at New Orleans could sideline him for four weeks or more.

ARLINGTON, TX - SEPTEMBER 08: Quarterback Tony Romo #9 of the Dallas Cowboys calls out while in the huddle in the first half against the New York Giants on September 8, 2013 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Cowboys Back Up Turnover Talk With Action

Ball-hawking defense was a scene that played out constantly during practice in the offseason and training camp for the Cowboys – pretty much ever since Monte Kiffin and Rod Marinelli showed up in January.

‘No Hurry’ On Cowboys’ Ratliff, But No Positives Either
