Dallas Cowboys’ Micah Parsons may be right about NFL’s referees. Also, get over it. - The Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Mac Engel

The holding non-calls on Micah Parsons have become ridiculous.

ARLINGTON, Texas — The claim is absurd, and if it came from nearly any other player in the NFL you could throw it in the garbage can.

When Micah Parsons says he is held by opposing offensive linemen, tight ends or fullbacks, on most plays this is not a Presidential campaign-caliber exaggeration.

The third year linebacker for the Dallas Cowboys is a genetic quake with no comp’. The man is too big, too quick, too fast and too strong for most human beings to be able to block; those who are tasked this assignment have to resort to “By any means necessary,” and hope for the best.

After the win against the Eagles, I asked him to guess the percentage of pass rush attempts he thinks he’s been held.

“I’d say at least 75 percent,” Parsons said.

Stefon Diggs says don’t count out battle-tested Bills as they prepare to host the Cowboys - The Associated Press, John Wawrow

The more Dallas gets challenged, the more we’ll see what this team is made of.

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Count out the Bills as much as you’d like, wide receiver Stefon Diggs is defiant and confident in believing Buffalo is in an ideal spot to make a late-season playoff push.

“We battled a lot, been battle-tested. And it’s a big thing being battled-tested,” Diggs said of a team that has spent much of the season lurching from one crisis to another — be it injuries, blown leads or coach Sean McDermott most recently having to publicly apologize for a clumsy remark he made four years ago in crediting the 9/11 hijackers for their communication skills.

“Outdoors, northern climate, all those things. I think this is what you need as part of that opportunity,” Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy said. “If things go right, and we’re able to get the momentum, grab those chunks of confidence that come with a good division win as we had (against the Eagles), this is an opportunity to go win and grow as a football team.”

Cowboys’ Micah Parsons has colorful description of Bills’ Josh Allen ahead of showdown - Yardbarker, Tommy Fradenburg

Candid as always.

The Dallas Cowboys defense is firing on all cylinders after holding the Philadelphia Eagles to two field goals on “Sunday Night Football,” but it can’t afford to get complacent with Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills up next on the schedule.

Dallas defensive star Micah Parsons spoke with the media about the looming trip to western New York, and he had a colorful description for one of the NFL’s top quarterbacks.

Cowboys make NFL scheduling demand: Jerry Jones says team only willing to host international games in one city - CBS Sports, John Breech

Can’t win them all Jerry, but make your voice heard.

The NFL has been holding international games since 2007, and in that time, the Dallas Cowboys have only been scheduled for one game, which came in 2014 when they played the Jaguars in London.

“I’m very reluctant to move a home game from here to there,” Jones said Wednesday of playing internationally, via the team’s official website. “We have a lot of fans. It fits for a lot of clubs, it doesn’t fit for the Cowboys as much. We got the highest attendance in the NFL, of course. When we don’t have a game here, it makes a big difference.”

The problem for the Cowboys is that they’re likely not going to have a choice anymore when it comes to “hosting” an international game. During the NFL’s annual winter meeting Wednesday, the league’s 32 owners voted to expand the international schedule.

Weather for Bills vs Cowboys in Orchard Park may be windy, rainy: The details. - Rochester Democrat and Chronicle, Steve Howe

Wind may impact those 60-yard field goals Aubrey was banging through with ease. May.

A chance of showers and some wind could impact Sunday’s late afternoon clash between the Buffalo Bills and Dallas Cowboys at Orchard Park.

The National Weather Service in Buffalo predicts winds from the south at 13 to 15 mph, as well as a chance of showers on Sunday in Orchard Park. The chance for rain increases as the day goes on; Buffalo Bills-Dallas Cowboys gameday kickoff is at 4:25 p.m.

There’s no risk of snow, with temperatures well above freezing — the daily high and lows at 49 and 39 degrees, respectively.

But, for a visiting team that plays indoors and has the can’t-miss rookie kicker Brandon Aubrey, it is the wind forecast we should watch closely.
