Garrett says Newman has had two quiet games because it's tough to maintain high pace

Terence Newman was on a hot streak a month ago. He had four interceptions in a stretch of five games. A pick-six. Seven tackles against Philadelphia. A fumble recovery at New England.

But last week at Arizona, he recorded no stats. It was his quietest game of the season, and it came off a Thanksgiving Day game against Miami in which he had only two tackles.

Where did he go?

“He made so many productive plays for us, game-changing plays earlier on, it’s hard to maintain that pace,” coach Jason Garrett said. “So you just keep banging away.”

Newman is seventh on the team in tackles and leads the team in interceptions with four as the Cowboys get ready to play the New York Giants on Sunday night.

“We’ve played some great receivers, different challenges that we’ve had,” Garrett said. “We’ll have more challenges this week. They’re awfully good throwing the football.”
