North Texas was well represented in Sunday's Dallas Cowboys vs. Cleveland Browns game at Cowboys Stadium, as former Mean Green teammates Lance Dunbar and Craig Robertson, each in their first year in the National Football League, played key roles in the game that Dallas won in overtime, 23-20.
Linebacker Robertson, who spent the final two weeks of last season on the Browns practice team before earning his first roster spot this season, has seen his playing time with Cleveland steadily increase. Sunday, he had five tackles and recorded his first career sack and his first fumble recovery.
Running back Dunbar, who made the Cowboys roster after being signed this fall as a free agent, continued his special-teams duties and continues to see his time at running back grow. Dunbar had five carries and two receptions, and rushed for a key first down on the Cowboys' game-winning overtime drive.
Before and after the game Robertson and Dunbar had a chance to speak with one another, and we spoke with both players in their locker rooms after the game.
