Raise your hand if you thought Phillip Tanner was going to have more playing time than Felix Jones. That’s what happened. Jones was banged up a couple of times during the game, and Jason Garrett had no problem leaning on Tanner to close out the game. He had six of the game’s last eight carries. ... John Phillips played quite a bit as the Cowboys used their two-tight end offense to bang away with the running game. ... Interestingly, Dwayne Harris took over for struggling Kevin Ogletree for a little while during the third quarter. Garrett said Ogletree had a slight finger injury.
