All one needs to know about the 2014 Dallas Cowboys as they head into the Sept. 7 season opener against the San Francisco 49ers is that eternally optimistic owner Jerry Jones is headed into the season with tempered enthusiasm. No longer is Jones pronouncing a Super Bowl or bust mantra for his downtrodden Cowboys, coming off four playoff less seasons and three 8-8 campaigns. The to-prove Cowboys." The Cowboys should have one of the most explosive offenses in the league with quarterback Tony Romo, receiver Dez Bryant, running back DeMarco Murray and three first-round picks on the offensive line.

|Dolphins have long check list for preseason game No. 3 (The SportsXchange)|
The Dolphins are expected to play starters and key reserves the entire first half and a series or two into the third quarter. The Dolphins would also like to see some evidence of a reliable running game and some production from second-year defensive end Dion Jordan. The defense needs to be disruptive and the offense needs to show a deep passing threat. Also, there is a chance previously sidelined tight end Charles Clay (right knee) and running back Knowshon Moreno (left knee) might play, which would give the offense a complete look.

Seven months post-surgery, Miller is showing flashes of his old self and looks determined to atone for a trouble-filled 2013 season that began with a six-game drug suspension and ended with a torn right ACL in Week 16.

|Raiders, Cowboys conclude joint practices (The Associated Press)|
The Oakland Raiders and Dallas Cowboys concluded their two days of joint practices Wednesday with another intense session that included a number of small scrums and had both teams excited to possibly repeat this again next season. While the first session Tuesday was marred by a brawl that nearly spilled into the stands and featured a Raiders fan swinging a replica helmet at a Cowboys player and cornerback B.W. Webb swinging back at the fan, the action on day two was all between the lines. 'Today we handled it a little bit better than we did yesterday,' Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant said. Raiders coach Dennis Allen said he believes the intensity from these past two days will translate to the field on Friday night when Oakland hosts Detroit in an exhibition game.
|Brawl breaks out at Raiders-Cowboys practice (NBC on Yahoo Sports)|
The Raiders hoped to have an intense, physical, yet fight-free pair of joint practices with the Dallas Cowboys. No such luck. A huge brawl broke out near the sideline during a 11-on-11 session between the Raiders offense and the Dallas defense. [RELATED: Raiders will increase intensity in joint practices with Cowboys ] Cowboys cornerback Morris Claiborne laid a heavy hit on tight end Mychal Rivera near a sideline packed with Raiders fans behind a chest-high cyclone fence. Fullback Marcel Reece and receiver Greg Little rushed to defend Rivera. Then a full-on brawl broke out. Even some defenders came over from the opposite field to join the massive scrum. Even some fans were taking swings over the fence. After that team session was over right tackle Menelik Watson and Reece went over to the Raiders fans packed on that side and high-fived them and fired them up even further. No one condoned the fight, but Reece believed it could hold some benefit. ?I?m proud of every single one of my guys,? he said. ?That?s how you?ve got to do it. And it?s not about fighting. It?s about us having each other?s backs. It?s about us taking care of each other, playing the game the right way.? Claiborne was the instigator, but he said he took his cue from Rivera to ratchet things up. ?I just felt like the guy dropped his shoulder on me,? Claiborne said. ?I just went up and went for the tackle because he dropped his shoulder on me and it turned out a brawl.? It broke up in less than a minute, but the intensity was high. A Raiders fan was caught on a Vine video swinging a souvenir helmet at cornerback B.W. Webb, who pushed people away. ?I wasn?t expecting that, but whoever jumped on my back, I had to get them off,? Webb said. ?It might have turned a little worse over there, but emotions were up, intensity was up. I didn?t go over there with intentions to hurt anybody or anything like that.? That wasn?t the only scuffle of practice. A smaller situation occurred between the Raiders defense and Cowboys offense near the end of practice when Dallas fullback JC Copeland got his helmet ripped off by a Raiders defender. Early in the session guard Austin Howard got into a shoving match with Dallas defensive lineman Davon Coleman. - Scott Bair, CSN Bay Area
|Jason Witten and his Cowboys try to shake off the 8-8 blues (Shutdown Corner)|
OXNARD, Calif ? 8-8 ? 8-8 ? 8-8 ?. Try counting those sheep as you lay in bed at the end of another disappointing, heartbreaking season. ?A lot of sleepless nights,? Cowboys tight end Jason Witten said about the Cowboys barely missing the playoffs the last three seasons. ?A lot of frustrating moments. A lot of what ifs. It?s the worst feeling in the world in football.? The last three years ended the same way for the Cowboys. They had a chance to win the NFC East in the last game of the season, the Sunday night contest to end Week 17 each time. They lost each one, dropping one each to the Giants, Redskins and Eagles for the East trifecta. Each time that dropped the Cowboys final record to 8-8. ?This training camp couldn?t get here fast enough for our football team,? Witten said. [Smack talk season is back at Yahoo Sports: Sign up and play free Fantasy Football! ] The annual heartbreaks wouldn?t be easy at any point, but when you?re 32 years old like Witten is, it?s even tougher. Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo?s name is synonymous with his lack of playoff success, to the point that everyone can recite the storyline by heart. ?I hope people understand, he puts up 400 yards and they give him all the grief,? NBA great Earvin "Magic" Johnson, a Cowboys and Raiders fan who was here on Tuesday to watch his favorite teams practice, said about Romo. ?He can?t also play defense. I?m always defending him and I?m upset when they criticize him.? Romo?s reputation for coming up short is part of the everyday American lexicon by this point, but Witten is in the same boat. He has played in 175 games, has 879 catches, 9,799 yards and is probably going to the Pro Football Hall of Fame someday. And in his 11 seasons he has experienced one playoff win, the same amount as his oft-criticized teammate. Witten and Dallas haven?t even been to the playoffs since 2010.
