In the fourth quarter of the Dallas Cowboys’ 33-20 victory of the Giants Sunday night in East Rutherford, cornerback Terence Newman got into a scuffle with safety Gerald Sensabaugh, presumably over an assignment. The two were separated by visibly incredulous Jay Ratliff, as well as Alan Ball and Keith Brooking, but the team had to call a timeout, to sort the mess out.
Afterward, Newman attributed the verbal row a “misunderstanding,” and all but dismissed the incident.
Head coach Jason Garrett also sounded unconcerned when asked about the incident after the victory.
"Great competitors talking about what was going on out there, making sure they're on the same page with the call and wanting to get it right," Garrett said of the incident. "It's a great appreciation for each other. I just walked past them in the locker room and they're about three inches from each other talking about the different plays in the game, so I think they'll be fine."
