Jerry Jones: Cowboys haven’t had a “true No. 1” receiver for several years department this season. Not only are they failing to have success themselves www.authenticsdallascowboys.com , but part of the reason they just lost to the Houston Texans is because of a superstar wideout in DeAndre Hopkins.It’s one thing to know something, but it’s another to have it rubbed in your face. Maybe that’s what happened to Jerry Jones because he’s been awfully cavalier with his comments about a “number one” receiver in the fallout of the loss.The leading receiver on the Cowboys for almost the last decade has been Dez Bryant. Obviously Dez was released by the team this past offseason, but that was less than a year ago which makes Jerry’s comments on 105.3 The Fan Tuesday morning interesting. He noted that it had been “several years” since the Cowboys had a true top threat.When Jones made his comments about not having one in general immediately following Sunday’s loss, they naturally stirred up questions:Why didn’t you get a No. 1 receiver then?Why did you only sign the players that you did?Why didn’t you draft someone who could be that player?As always in situations like this, the questions aren’t all necessarily rational, but they happen in times like these. We weren’t the only one making remarks though, Dez Bryant made yet another plea to re-join the team that released him six months ago by inferring that he could be the player Jones is looking for.A few things seem clear at this point:The Cowboys don’t have a “No. 1” receiverThey haven’t had one in some timeConsidering Dez Bryant was on the team as recently as last season, the Cowboys didn’t view him as a “No. 1” receiver and therefore don’t right now when needing one desperatelyDez Bryant was a fantastic wide receiver across the whole of his career with the Cowboys, but is it really fair to say that he was a “No. 1” receiver over the last few seasons? Of course not.What Dez did in 2016 was generally underrated as far as things go, and to his credit he dealt with his own injury and a quarterback change; however, the point remains that Dez never re-gained the form he had from 2012-2014 after he signed his contract extension in 2015.That’s about it. There was a lot of laughter and smiles in the Washington Redskins' locker room, the exact opposite of what was happening down the hall where the New York Giants were dressing.It's the difference between winning and losing.The Redskins (5-2) are winning these days. They won their third in a row and kept their 1陆-game lead in the NFC East with a 20-13 win over the hapless Giants, who are 1-7 for the second consecutive season."We feel good, but, we can't get too excited," said Adrian Peterson, who rushed for 149 yards and scored two touchdowns, one on a 64-yard run and the other on a 7-yard reception. "We know there's a lot we need to work on Dallas Cowboys T-Shirt , and that we can improve on. So, we'll take this win for what it is, and get ready for this next game."Washington, who got two interceptions by D.J. Swearinger, returns home to face Atlanta on Sunday. The Giants have a bye but their future may change in the next two days.The NFL trading deadline is Tuesday. New York dealt cornerback Eli Apple and defensive tackle Damon Harrison last week. There could be more moves with cornerback Janoris Jenkins, linebacker Olivier Vernon and probably anybody else who will bring assets to help rebuild a team that has four wins in 24 games.Quarterback Eli Manning, who was sacked seven times, indicated he wants to stay and won't waive his no-trade clause."Everyone wants to win," said Manning, who threw for 316 yards. "No one likes this feeling after a game. That is what you are fighting for. You prepare to feel good about the work that goes in. Guys are working hard, practicing hard and doing all of the right things."They just aren't winning.RUN DEFENSEThe key to the Redskins success has been their defense, particularly against the run. Washington has held opponents under 100 yards in four straight games and five of seven. A week after limiting Ezekiel Elliott of Dallas to 34 yards, rookie Saquon Barkley of the Giants was held to 38 on 13 carries, with a long of 9 yards.Redskins linebacker Zach Brown said he was yappy with Barkley, the No. 2 pick in the draft."Come here rook," Brown recalled. "We want to introduce you to this game real quick. We don't care what round you are. You can be All Pro. We don't care. We just emphasis the run. You are not running the ball."PETERSON-BARKLEYThe first meeting of Peterson and Saquon Barkley was clearly won by the veteran. The 33-year-old gained a season-high 149 yards on 26 carries, capped by a late 64-yard touchdown that iced the game. He also caught his first TD pass with Washington. He passed Tony Dorsett for No. 9 in league history and now has 12,863 yards. He is the fourth player in the NFL with at least 140 rushing yards and a rushing touchdown in a single game at age 33 or older Dallas Cowboys Hats , joining John Henry Johnson (1964), John Riggins (1984) and De Angelo Williams (2016). Barkley, the second pick overall in the draft, gained 38 yards rushing on 13 carries and caught nine passes for 73 yards.MIFFED SWEARINGERSwearinger was angry because Pro Football Focus listed him as their top safety and didn't post his picture. He took it out on the Giants."This was the first week they didn't put the number one's picture up," Swearinger said. "I feel like that was disrespect so I tweeted them and said make sure they watch this game today, because I wanted to show them that I am the best safety in this game and I'm going to keep doing that every game, week in and week out, so they just got to get mad at me."SACK CITYThe Giants offensive line has struggled all season, but this was their worst effort. They allowed Manning to be sacked a season-high seven times. He now has been sacked 31 times this season. "I didn't know it was that many," center Spencer Pulley said. "That's ridiculous. That's something we can't allow, at all."Manning said each sack had its own story. Some were coverage sacks. Some were linemen getting beat. Some were him not getting the ball out fast enough."I think we've got to get the run game going," tackle Nate Solder said. "There's some other things we need to work at. If we could get that going, that would solve some other problems."BECKHAM PRODUCINGOdell Beckham, Jr. had eight receptions for 136 yards. He caught eight passes for 143 yards last week in Atlanta. This is the first time he's had at least eight receptions in each of two consecutive games since Nov. 1-8, 2015, when he had eight and then nine at New Orleans and Tampa Bay. These are his first consecutive 100-yard games since he had six in a row in 2015.
