The tragedy of the death of a teammate gripped the Dallas Cowboys this weekend as they headed off on a road trip to Cincinnati.

The Dallas Cowboys turned a weekend of grief into a sense of relief.

Heading to Cincinnati for their game, the players learned teammate Jerry Brown was dead. He was killed in a traffic accident early Saturday morning.

On a day perhaps most of the Cowboys really did not feel like playing, they rallied to beat the Bengals 20 to 19.

Afterward, Coach Jason Garrett talked afterward about how he envisions Brown

“My memory as a big strapping guy with this bright smile on his face, bright eyes, bounce in his step. Every time I saw him,” he said.

Garrett said he asked the team to try and channel their emotions into honoring their teammate.
