Dan Bailey (K) - Bailey didn't get any field goal opportunities as the Cowboys got manhandled by the Green Bay Packers 28-7. He did knock in his only point after attempt. A long season for the Cowboys continues.
Dez Bryant (WR) - Dez was targeted five times but only had one catch for nine yards. His chemistry with Matt Cassel is as bad as Bill Belichick's with the press. In a terrible year for the NFC East the Cowboys missed a great opportunity due to Tony Romo getting injured and Jerry Jones' pride by letting Demarco Murray go.
Tyler Patmon (CB) - Patmon didn't record a stat in what was his last game for the Cowboys as he was released Tuesday. This continues a rough trend for the former Oklahoma State Cowboys in Dallas. Weeded, Randle and now Patmon have all been cut by Dallas this season. It's possible he gets another shot elsewhere as he had a solid 2014 showing for the Cowboys.
Brandon Pettigrew (TE) - Pettigrew caught his only target for seven yards before leaving the game with what turned out to be a torn ACL, thus ending his season. It's the same ACL he tore as a rookie in 2009. This could spell the end for the blocking tight end in Detroit.
Kevin Williams (DT) - Williams recorded a tackle in New Orleans 24-17 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Sunday. Williams has had a really solid 2015, his 13th season in the NFL.
Perrish Cox (CB) - Cox had four tackles and a pass defense in the Titans 30-8 loss to the New York Jets Sunday. He could've had a fifth tackle but obviously made a business decision on this one....
Perrish Cox, cmon man! https://t.co/Kmtx0Dr4d3— Luke Hill (@LukeHill_The1st) December 13, 2015
Perrish has never been known for his physicality but this is laughable.
Russell Okung (LT) - Okung and the Seahawks are gaining momentum as they won their fourth in a row with a 35-6 beat down of the Baltimore Ravens Sunday. The Seahawks are winning behind Russell Wilson's arm these days. In large part due to Marshawn Lynch and now Thomas Rawls sustaining injuries (Rawls suffered a fractured ankle and is out for the year), the Seahawks have transitioned to a passing offense. Okung and the Seahawks offensive line were credited with giving Wilson the time he needed to complete five touchdown passes.
Shamiel Gary (S) - The recently acquired Gary saw the field for a second straight week but only in a limited capacity behind starter Michael Thomas. He recorded a tackle but the secondary as a whole had a rough night as Odell Beckham Jr. roasted them for seven catches for 166 yards and two touchdowns. In their defense, Beckham is doing that to just about everyone these days.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Orie Lemon (LB) - Lemon was re-signed (the third time this season) last week by the Bucs. He saw the field on special teams in the teams 24-17 loss to the New Orleans Saints. Due to injury and suspension it looks like Lemon could see some significant time at linebacker this week. Tampa Bay's ESPN site had a cool little article on him that you can find here.
Pistols Not Firing (Players on the bench or hurt)
Justin Gilbert (CB) - Gilbert was inactive again due to a concussion. A rough season and career continues for the former first round pick.
Brandon Weeden (QB) - Weeden was inactive for this weeks game but this article by ESPN's Todd Archer begged the question, "Did the Cowboys make a mistake cutting Weeden?" He thinks so, and so do I.
