Coming off of a two-game winning streak, everyone knew this was going to be a pivotal game in the Cowboys' season, and it certainly lived up to the hype. The Cowboys' Offense exploded in...
At the beginning of this story, you have a choice. It is a choice that should be simple, but due to partisan machinations, has become near impossible to resolve. This choice has to deal with what the media has dubbed the “migrant caravan.” Your choice is how you react to these images of suffering. Do you accept the machinations...
