The back-and-forth between the Cowboys and Giants about whether injuries were faked Sunday night has resembled a tennis match.
But it’s now over, after Cullen Jenkins just smashed one down the line for match point.
The whole thing started when Jerry Jones accused the Giants of faking injuries to slow his team, saying it was “so obvious it was funny.” Giants coach Tom Coughlin disagreed, and the league quietly took his side.
But because it was the Giants and Cowboys, it wasn’t going to end there.
“I don’t know,” Jenkins said of Jones, via Ebenezer Samuel of the New York Daily News. “I don’t know what he saw. I’m not sure. Maybe he should get his son-in-law to clean his glasses to see what’s going on out there.”
While that was certainly worthy of dropping the mic and walking off, Jenkins insisted he was actually injured, feeling something in his shoulder, though he did return.
“I got like a stinger in my shoulder,” Jenkins said. “That’s what had me down. If he sees the play, I clearly was down before they even made an attempt to go no-huddle. So I’m not sure what he’s talking about. . . .
“I think he just wanted to something to say. They got the win. They beat us. It’s all good.”
Says the guy who got the last word. For now.
