Urban Meyer stepped away from being Ohio State's head coach last year, but he'd be tempted to return to the game for one other storied franchise. Meyer stopped by The Herd with Colin Cowherd on Friday, where he was asked if there was any truth to the rumors of Oklahoma's Lincoln Riley potentially joining the Dallas Cowboys coaching staff. Meyer took this opportunity to throw his name into the [email protected]: Would Lincoln Riley consider leaving Oklahoma for the [email protected]: I can't speak for him. I hate to even speculate... That's the one job in professional football you say, 'I've got to go do that'.

"That's New York Yankees, that's the Dallas Cowboys. That's the one. Great city. They got Dak Prescott, Zeke Elliott.

You got a loaded team. And I can't speak for him obviously, I hate to even speculate because I don't know him, that's really not fair, but to me, that's the one job in professional football that you say, 'I got to go do that.'" This prompted Cowherd to ask if he would be interested in the gig if Dallas called him. Absolutely. Yes," Meyer answered. Jerry Jones hasn't alluded to the Cowboys' current coach, Jason Garrett, being on the hot seat, but he's on the last year of his contract. The team is sitting at 3-3 with two straight losses to the Packers and Jets. He's never made it past the divisional round of the playoffs during his tenure. ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. [WKBW] — Big-time players make big-time plays. It's a sports cliche we've heard time and time again. But on Sunday when his team needed it most, Tre'Davious White changed the Bills' fortune. In the third quarter with the Dolphins about to go up 21-9, Tre'Davious White jumped a route and intercepted Ryan Fitzpatrick's pass.

"That was huge for our team." "We finally got the juices going, the crowd got into it, and it was just a momentum play," defensive tackle Jordan Phillips said. "You could tell that the tides turned." His teammates responded with a 98-yard touchdown drive that shifted the game into the Bills' control. It was the first touchdown for the home team of the game and it gave the Bills a lead they wouldn't relinquish. "We needed that play," QB Josh Allen said. "That was a big boost for us, you know, mentally and emotionally and we knew that once we got that ball in the end zone, that we started playing, how we're supposed to play complementary football." Allen, who struggled in the first half, turned things up down the stretch. In the second half, the Bills QB finished 10-of-11 for 112 yards and two touchdowns. It wasn't a great game by any stretch, but it was a solid recovery after a slow start for the offense. "When we play to our standard we trust each other we play complementary football," Allen added. "That's usually going to produce good results and that's what we weren't doing that the first half." After scoring their first touchdown it was once again Tre'Davious White making a play to help his team. The Bills corner punched a ball loose, forcing a fumble that Jerry Hughes was able to recover. Once again the Bills turned the turnover into points as Allen found Cole Beasley for his first touchdown as a Bill. "That's something we practice everyday" White said of his forced fumble. "That's what we do on this team. We just execute the things we do in practice and we take them to the field and display them." The Bills, who were favored by 17 points, went on to win by 10 thanks to an onside kick they returned for a touchdown. But for White, all that matters is that the Bills are 5-1. "This is the NFL. Any given Sunday. Teams watch film, they get tendencies and it's something we need to correct and we'll come out next week and try to have a better day."
