The Cowboys are mourning for one teammate and praying for another.

The Dallas Cowboys franchise was jolted with grief when linebacker Jerry Brown died in a car accident. Their sorrow turned to disbelief when it was revealed that teammate Josh Bryant was driving while intoxicated at the time of the crash early Saturday morning. The Cowboys circled their wagons and won an improbable game on the road against the Cincinnati Bengals 20-19.

A collective sigh of relief is coming out of the nation’s capital as tests have revealed no damage to the right knee of quarterback Robert Griffin III. Griffin’s knee was hyper-extended when he collided in the fourth quarter against the Baltimore Ravens. Griffin would eventually give way to fellow rookie Kirk Cousins. Cousins would continue the Redskins final drive in regulation by throwing a touchdown and running in the two-point conversion. The Redskins would defeat the Ravens 31-28 in overtime.
