Cowboys cornerback Mo Claiborne remembers penalty-filled day, expects Eagles to target him again

It was a day Cowboys cornerback Morris Claiborne wants to forget, but even he couldn't help but think about it on Monday outside the locker room at Valley Ranch, six days before he faces the Eagles on Sunday at Cowboys Stadium.

It just two weeks ago that Claiborne had the worst game of his life, committing five penalties – two offsides, two holding, one pass interference – and giving up a touchdown in the Cowboys’ 38-23 victory against the Eagles.

If he remembers, he knows the Eagles remember.

“As I was standing outside, I was thinking about it,” Claiborne said. “And I know the penalties I had last time, they have no choice but to come try me. If I was on the opposing team, I would try me. I just have to prepare myself and get ready for it.”

Claiborne hasn't given up a touchdown or committed a penalty in the two games since, against Cleveland and Washington. He was not part of the barrage of points given up by the defense against the Redskins last week when Robert Griffin III tossed four touchdown passes. 

Still he knows the Eagles are going to focus on victimizing him again on Sunday.
