News: Cowboys-Cardinals flexed, Kearse’s leadership, Kellen Moore headed to Jacksonville?

The Dallas Cowboys were set to have their third noon kickoff in four weeks against the Arizona Cardinals on January 2. The NFL decided on Thursday that regional coverage wasn’t good enough and flexed the game. Safety Jayron Kearse has won the hearts of Cowboys fans with his stellar play in 2021, and he believes that he and his defensive teammates have what it takes to win it all.

Cowboys offensive coordinator Kellen Moore is known as a mad scientist when it comes to attacking NFL defenses, and with Urban Meyer getting the boot in Jacksonville, he could draw some serious interest for their head coaching vacancy. Bold predictions for Cowboys-Giants, Dak Prescott’s admission that he isn’t playing as well but isn’t in a slump like some suggest, and much more are on deck in this edition of the news and notes.
