IRVING, Texas – Brandon Carr has preached the same story every single week this season.
“It’s going to be a 60-minute battle” and “we have to take it one week at a time.”
As cliché as it may seem, it actually sounds sincere coming from Carr. Every single week Carr is asked to contain the opposing team’s best receiver. All the while he is expected to continue to be a leader for the secondary and mentor rookie Morris Claiborne.
So it makes sense that Carr only focuses on “one week at a time.”
Carr has made a great impression as a smart and physical corner for the Cowboys. But coming into last Sunday’s game against the Eagles, he had yet to do one of the things that a lot of people had expected of him: intercept a pass. That all changed in Philadelphia when Carr picked off Nick Foles and ran the ball back 48 yards for his first career touchdown.
Carr implied on Thursday that his performance against the Eagles might be a sign of things to come.
