Offensive Struggles Plague Cowboys In 24-13 Loss To Seahawks

Thomas' second interception was one of two turnovers forced by Seattle in the fourth quarter. Both issues can be tackled by moving the chains, though Seattle ranks 29th in the league in successful third down conversion attempts.

The fact that the Seahawks are facing the Cowboys is certainly part of what makes this interesting.

Despite having star safety Earl Thomas back in the fold, there is still chatter around him concerning his long-term future with the franchise.

The babies range in age from 3 days to 1 month, NY police Assistant Chief Juanita Holmes told reporters Friday. It is unclear if the nursery was a legal child care facility, according to CBS New York .

Thomas is in the final season of a four-year, $40 million deal and is said to be frustrated by the team's prioritization of new deals for Frank Clark and Tyler Lockett ahead of his. Asked if there was a chance Thomas would miss Week 3, Carroll said: "We'll see how he's doing".

In the middle of practice Friday, Thomas apparently sat down on the sideline and chose not to participate in the rest of team drills, according to FOX Sports' Jay Glazer. A defense led by Bobby Wagner and an unhappy Earl Thomas forced turnovers, making Dak Prescott and Dallas look meager trying to move the ball.

"I felt like that was just in the moment and if they were going to trade for me and extend me, they should have did it", Thomas said of his bow that drew a 15-yard penalty. He also claimed that, before the game, a pair of unnamed Cowboys coaches approached him and said, "You ready for the trade tomorrow?" He and strong safety Bradley McDougald are two of the five highest-graded safeties through two weeks, and the only pair from the list who are on the same team.
