Jason Garrett said in his press conference Monday that he was pleased with the effort turned in by inside linebacker Bruce Carter against the Giants, his first game taking over signal calling duties for the Dallas defense in the wake of defensive co-captain Sean Lee’s season-ending toe injury.
Carter finished the game with five tackles, four solo, and helped lead the Dallas defense in what was an impressive (albeit a losing) showing in the absence of Lee, the team’s leading tackler in 2011. To wit, the Cowboys’ defense somehow managed to keep the game close despite having to overcome six turnovers by the offense--no small feat, particularly considering that this came against a very dangerous offense led by Eli Manning and co.
“We fought to the end,” Carter said, per the Dallas Morning News, “Nobody gave up, everybody was flying to the football.”
