Jerry Jones, Cowboys player reportedly had argument

This weekend has been an extremely emotional one for the Dallas Cowboys -- before and after Sunday's 20-19 win over the Cincinnati Bengals.

A report from KRLD-FM indicates last week's win over the Philadelphia Eagles was pretty emotional, too.

Cowboys nose tackle Jay Ratliff reportedly had a "volcanic" jaw-to-jaw exchange with owner Jerry Jones after the game.

Jones reportedly told Ratliff "we need you," and the veteran, who hasn't played in seven games this season because of injuries, didn't take it well. Ratliff rose to physically challenge Jones and made a comment about the owner's age.

"They're both passionate men and great men, and they want to win, that's all it is," one source told the radio station. "But they were in each other's faces. People had to intervene."

Ratliff didn't practice all week after the incident and was described as a "brooding" presence at the Cowboys' facility.
