Cowboys fans ready to cut Anthony Brown right after the Penalty Shootout Fest against the Raiders

The Dallas Cowboys returned on Thanksgiving to force them to work overtime, but Anthony Browne’s ongoing DPI penalties eventually drowned them out and fans were pretty angry.

For much of the Thanksgiving Day game between the Dallas Cowboys and the Las Vegas Raiders, it looked as if the latter would run away with it. They were getting the jumps right, playing plays and watching Dallas constantly shoot in the foot.

One of the biggest culprits in this was linebacker Anthony Brown. In regulation, the veteran (who had no pass interference penalties in the season) was flagged three times for defensive pass interference. Despite this, Dallas came back and was forced into overtime thanks to a rebound in the fourth quarter.

In the overtime period, Dak Prescott and the Cowboys got the ball first but failed to turn the ball down. But the defense looked as if it might advance after forcing a third to fall back. That’s when Brown came back to play again.

Raiders quarterback Derek Carr attempted a deep throw for Zee Jones but threw it. Anthony Brown was in the coverage, though, and he failed to turn his head at all, leading to a fourth DPI call-up for the game.

Cowboys fans angry at Anthony Brown after fourth DPI penalty gives Raiders victory

This penalty kick put Las Vegas in range and they were able to convert and win the Thanksgiving feast.

After that kind of poor performance from the back corner, you can imagine Cowboys fans were ready to get Anthony Brown off the roster ASAP.

Cowboys were on the wrong end for some Extremely Questionable calls throughout the match with the raiders, but most if not all of Brown’s penalties for interference in the pass were not among them.

Now, Dallas is down to 7-4 on the season and it’s hard not to think that, had Brown not been so detrimental to the holiday effort, they would have been in a much better position heading into the extended home regular season.
