Jerry Jones Accused of Sexual Assault in Lawsuit

We're only one week in, and this is probably already the least fun NFL season to write about ever.

Former exotic dancer Jana Weckerly has filed a suit in Dallas County District Court on Monday alleging Jones assaulted her in 2009. Jones and the Cowboys are named separately in the lawsuit, which says both owner and team went to great lengths to cover up the assault. The lawsuit seeks a jury trial for Jones and "monetary relief of over $1,000,000 so as not to limit what the jury may award in this case."

Mike Tanier's Monday Morning Hangover: Forget the Flags

It's pretty much the same as Mandatory Monday, folks. I kick off this week with a count of the holding and contact penalties, with five-year totals to show that, yes, there were a few more on Thursday and Sunday.

Then, it's off to the Gary Kubiak jokes.

SITE NEWS: Updated Playoff Odds

Apologies, but due to an error in the re-written playoff odds program, the playoff odds we originally ran with our DVOA projections on Wednesday were slightly incorrect. (The NFC was mistakenly given home-field advantage in the Super Bowl; the three London games were also not coded as neutral-site games.) We have corrected these issues, added the Green Bay-Seattle game as final, and re-run the playoff odds for you to enjoy.
