Did New York Giants players fake injuries to slow down a no-huddle Dallas Cowboys offense, as Dallas owner Jerry Jones contends, in the Cowboys' 36-31 victory at AT&T Stadium Sunday night?

The outspoken Cowboys owner made his feelings known to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram after the game.

"I thought us experts on football were the only ones who could see that," Jones said. "I didn’t know everybody could. It was so obvious it was funny. It wasn’t humorous because we really wanted the advantage and knew we could get it if we could get the ball snapped."

During the national televised game Sunday, viewers could hear Dallas tight end Jason Whitten screaming at a referee in the second quarter, "Hey, he's faking it. He's faking it," when Giants defensive end Cullen Jenkins sought medical attention from a trainer, according to NFL.com. 

Jenkins' attempt to get medical attention came after Giants linebacker Dan Conner called for attention for a neck injury, bringing the game to a crawl after the Cowboys quickly moved down field on a scoring drive, NFL.com reported.

New York coach Tom Coughlin defended his players on Monday.

"It's absolutely not true. It's not true," Coughlin said in a conference call. "Both those players were injured. Connor never returned to the game. Cullen was in a position where he needed to regroup. So no, that really wasn't orchestrated at all."

NFL.com pointed out that the Giants were accused of faking injuries during a 2011 game against the St. Louis Rams in an attempt to show down their no-huddle offense.

The accusations prompted the league to send out a memo to every team, warning them that faking injuries could lead to "substantial league discipline."
