The Cowboys feel like they can accomplish some terrific things now that they have their offensive pieces nearly intact, starting with Sunday's game against New England. WR Miles Austin returns from his hamstring injury, Dez Bryant's bruised thigh is becoming an afterthought and RB Felix Jones has remained in the lineup. It will be the first time since Week One that the Cowboys have been fully healthy with their skill-position leaders, and if the offensive line continues to come together, this group could be special. The coaches spent the bye week evaluating ways to make QB Tony Romo more effective, and Jason Garrett is more likely to be judicious with his play-calling and more aware of how his QB is handling the pressure, depending on the game. The key with having Austin now is that opponents likely can take only one of the big three — Austin, Bryant or TE Jason Witten — out of the game plan. That still leaves two dangerous receiving options to exploit secondaries.
