Cowboys bringing in kickers to challenge Folk

IRVING, Texas (AP) — The Dallas Cowboys are opening up the kicking competition after Nick Folk's latest key miss against New Orleans.

Cowboys coach Wade Phillips wouldn't specify which or how many kickers the Cowboys were bringing in Monday.

Folk clanged the upright on an easy 24-yarder that would have put away Saturday night's 24-17 victory against the unbeaten Saints. Instead, the Dallas defense had to make one more stand against one of the league's best offenses.

Folk leads the NFL with 10 misses, going 18 of 28. Several of them have hurt the Cowboys' chances late in games.
