    CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The Dallas Cowboys have no interest in aesthetics at this point.

    Call Sunday's 19-14 victory over the Carolina Panthers whatever you want.
    Point out the conservative play-calling that had them settling for a go-ahead 28-yard field goal by Dan Bailey with 3:25 left in the game.

    Talk about the questionable calls that went against the Panthers.

    There was a no-call on early contact by cornerback Morris Claiborne on a fourth-down incompletion to Louis Murphy on the ensuing possession.

    There was a phantom horse-collar flag on linebacker James Anderson against running back Phillip Tanner when the Panthers were trying to get the ball back, ultimately setting up a 38-yard field goal by Bailey, who made four in the game.

    And never mind that the offense continued to struggle, scoring just one touchdown against an injury-depleted Panthers defense.
