Showers in the forecast for Cowboys-Bengals

Sunday's game between the Cowboys and Cincinnati Bengals has a 60 percent chance of scattered thunderstorms according to weather.com

"You're always talking about ball security and certainly in the elements you got to make sure you lock that thing up," coach Jason Garrett said on Friday. "Anybody who is touching the football at any point, you got to make sure you secure it."
