Despite the win, Micah Parsons said Dallas receives more criticism from the media than the other three teams in the NFC East.
“Nah. I’m the face,” he said. “I’m giving them their content. They’re basically stealing my content. They’re wrong. They’re doing exactly what I say they’re going to do. Whether we win or lose, they’re going to have something to say.”
On Wednesday, Parsons again ripped the media, saying they are “big bullies” that will have “something to say” no matter if the Cowboys win or lose, as reported by Clarence Hill, Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

Dallas returns to action on Sunday with a 1 p.m. matchup against the Rams (3-3).
The Cowboys rebounded from a 32-point loss to San Francisco with their victory over the Chargers last week.
As for Parsons’s alma mater, PSU will take on Indiana Saturday, with a noon kick scheduled for CBS.
