Football Wrap Up: Dec. 10

Here's a wrap up of the week that was.

1. Cowboys win emotional game- The Cowboys came into Cincinnatti
with very heavy hearts. Saturday, Jerry Brown was tragically killed in a car
accident and teammate and close friend Josh Brent was charged with intoxication
manslaughter. A football game was still played and Dallas came back from a 9
