Cowboys' Jerry Jones Confident Against Eagles


Jim McIsaac/Getty Images(ARLINGTON, Texas) -- Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is confident in his team headed into their Thanksgiving Day showdown with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Jones, who is teaming up with The Salvation Army this holiday season, said on Wednesday that he has faith his team.

"It's one of the biggest, if not the biggest we've ever played on Thanksgiving Day," Jones told ABC Sports Radio.  

The Eagles are 5-0 on Thanksgiving and both teams are tied for first in the NFC East, but Jones isn't worried about that.

"I don't know what our record is, but we've played more turkey days than the Eagles have, I'm not going to let them have that advantage either," Jones continued.

Jones saw his team go into MetLife Stadium on Sunday and beat the Giants in front of a lot of Dallas fans.

"It was fabulous," Jones said. "Boy I was rewarded by all of those Cowboys fans. That defense [chant] that was going on at the Meadowlands was real rewarding."

The Eagles are averaging 31.1 points per game this year under head coach Chip Kelly.

"We have all the respect for Chip Kelly, certainly their style is a challenge," Jones said.  "What we need to do is keep the ball with the Cowboys, we don't need our defense out there any longer then it has to be."

Egg Bowl Preview


American Football Field Yard Lines IStockPhoto/ Thinkstock(STARKVILLE, Miss.) -- Mississippi State can't afford a loss to rival Ole Miss on Saturday. The Bulldogs sit at No. 4 in the latest College Football Playoff rankings that were announced on Tuesday and are looking forward to the Egg Bowl.

"[It's the] last regular season for us, rivalry game, you got to leave it all out there on the field," Bulldogs head coach Dan Mullen said this week. "You kind of work all year round for this type of game."

Both teams come in ranked for only the third time in 57 years of the Egg Bowl, but Ole Miss dropped to No. 18 after a 30-0 loss to Arkansas last weekend.

"They're a very good football team," Rebels head coach Hugh Freeze said.  "[Quarterback] Dak Prescott makes them better than very good.  You take him away from that team they're still really good."

"Defensively they're one of the best in the nation against the rush. They just don't give up much on the ground at all," Freeze continued. 

Prescott rallied Mississippi State to a comeback victory in last year's matchup and remains one of the favorites to win the Heisman Trophy.

"It's a game played with emotions and a game played with the heart," Prescott said. "It's a good rivalry and I'm glad to be a part of it."

Florida Prepares for Florida State


Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images(GAINSVILLE, Fl.) -- Florida is looking to hand Florida State their first loss of the season on Saturday in one of the biggest rivalry games of the weekend.

Gators head coach Will Muschamp is set to step down at seasons end and knows the importance of this game.

"[They're a] really good football team. [I've] got tremendous respect for [Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher] and the job he's done and his staff," Muschamp said. "They've won a bunch in a row. Last time they lost was when the Gators were up there. They've done a outstanding job."

Florida State got all they could handle from Boston College last weekend and Fisher knows that the Gators are pumped up for this game.

"We're going into battle," Fisher said. "These games are going to be dogfights. People are going to try and be the one that knocks us out, knocks us off, got nothing to lose."

Florida is 2-1 on the road this year.  The Seminoles have won six games this year at home.

Curry Drops 40 on Heat


NBA via Golden State Warriors(MIAMI, Fl.) -- Stephen Curry lit up the Miami Heat Tuesday night as he led the Golden State Warriors to a 114-97 victory.

Curry finished the night shooting 12 of 19 from the floor, draining eight 3-pointers. 

There had been some concern in the past couple days with Curry's shooting as he was 8 of 24 in his previous two games. Curry steadied those worries by finding open looks with the help of his teammates. 

"Everything feels in rhythm," Curry said. "My bigs, Draymon Green, Mo Speights, Andrew Bogut set some great screens for me and I got a lot of space. When you see your first two or three go down, your confidence is at a high. Shots just appear and you have confidence to knock them down."

Heat forward Chris Bosh was utterly perplexed by the end result.  With 6:45 left in the fourth, his team was leading by two.

"We got to the end, we're in the bonus, you know 93-95 and we don't score anymore," Bosh said. "We just forget our offense and I don't know why."

The Warriors have now won six straight and are 11-2 on the season.

Redskins Bench RGIII for McCoy


Ronald Martinez/Getty Images(ASHBURN, Va) -- Push has come to shove as the Redskins have decided to bench Robert Griffin III in favor of Colt McCoy this Sunday when Washington will face Indianapolis.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Griffin will not play this weekend, but remains a part of the team's long term plans. 

Griffin has struggled this season. He has missed six games after suffering a dislocated ankle in week 2. In the five games he has started, Griffin has completed 69.7% of his passes for 869 yards while throwing two touchdowns and three interceptions. Additionally, he has been sacked 16 times. The team is 1-4 in those five starts.

McCoy made his only start of the season against the Dallas Cowboys on October 27. He completed 25 of 30 passes for 299 yards with one interception and a rushing touchdown in a game that saw the Redskins defeat the Cowboys 20-17.

Aaron Hernandez Murder Trial Delayed


John Tlumacki/The Boston Globe via Getty Images(MASSACHUSETTS) -- Aaron Hernandez has had his trial for a 2012 double murder delayed so his lawyers could prepare for the 2013 killing of Odin Lloyd.

Hernandez is charged with the 2012 deaths of Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado. The fallen star is alleged to have killed the two men after one of them spilled a drink on him at a Boston nightclub.

Lawyers for Hernandez say they are reviewing more than 500,000 pieces of evidence and more than 300 names turned over by the district attorney's office.

The judge in the case, Jeffery Locke, has agreed to delay the case but did not set a new trial date. Locke stated that he would like to see how long the trial in Lloyd's murder takes before making a decision.

Bills Will Play in Buffalo on Sunday


Tom Szczerbowski/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- After a temporary hiatus from Ralph Wilson Stadium, the Buffalo Bills are fully planning on playing in front of their home crowd this Sunday against the Cleveland Browns.

The Bills' scheduled game this past Sunday in Buffalo needed to be played on Monday night at Ford Field in Detroit due to a massive snowstorm that hit the area. Over seven feet of snow fell in less than a week.

"We are looking forward to preparing for the Browns and playing Sunday here at Ralph Wilson Stadium," Bills president Russ Brandon said. "There's been an enormous amount of progress over the last few days, and while we had a difficult hand from Mother Nature last week, Mother Nature certainly assisted this week."

Bills players and coaches barely had any time to meet or practice, yet they were still able to defeat the New York Jets 38-3 on Monday night.

According to Brandon, engineers found no structural issues to the stadium, and it will be safe to host a game.

Broncos Release Kicker Brandon McManus, Sign Connor Barth to Replace Him


National Football League(ENGLEWOOD, Colo.) -- Frustrated by the lack of consistency in their kicking game, the Denver Broncos have cut kicker Brandon McManus and replaced him with Connor Barth.

The Broncos had worked out kickers Jay Feely and Barth this week and decided that Barth was a better option.

"We're in a performance-based business, regardless of what your job description is, you're expected to perform. I don't think he's the worst kicker in the league by any stretch, as I mentioned earlier...don't know there's a whole lot of kickers who've made every kick thus far, 11 or 12 games into the season," Broncos head coach John Fox said. "Whether you're a rookie or a 12-year veteran, you're still expected to perform. It doesn't matter what position."

The Broncos acquired McManus from the New York Giants for a seventh-round pick prior to the start of the season. He converted 9 of 13 field goal attempts, good for only 69.2%.

Barth hasn't kicked in a regular-season game since 2012, when he was with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Lions Prepare for Bears on Thanksgiving


Leon Halip/Getty Images(DETRIOT) -- Thanksgiving Day football will kickoff with the Chicago Bears traveling to the Motor City to take on their divisional rivals, the Detroit Lions.

Detroit (7-4) is coming off a 34-9 loss to the Patriots on Sunday.

"[We've] got to find a way to get better and get better in a hurry," Lions head coach Jim Caldwell said. "[It's a] tough Chicago Bear team that we're about to face who's won two games in a row."

Chicago (5-6) is coming off a 21-13 win over Tampa on Sunday and are well aware of the challenges of playing during a short week.

"It's something that's universal throughout the league," Bears head coach Marc Trestman said. "Everybody's playing Thursday night games. We've all had experience in putting gameplans together."

Trestman knows that Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford will be looking to erase a tough day on Sunday.

"We know what they have talent wise offensively," Trestman said.  "That'll be a challenge for us."
