Taylor's Takes: Without Josh Brent, who was arrested Saturday for intoxication manslaughter in the death of practice squad linebacker Jerry Brown, the Cowboys used a combination of Sean Lissemore and Robert Calloway at nose tackle. The Bengals averaged 7.3 yards per carry and did much of their damage between the tackles. ... Cornerback Sterling Moore, who joined the team less than two weeks ago, has made himself valuable because he can play outside and the slot, which is why he received considerable playing time. ... Gerald Sensabaugh has not missed a play in 10 weeks. ... Alex Albright played better this week and split some time at inside linebacker with Dan Connor.
