Tough day on the job for Morris Claiborne

PHILADELPHIA -- Morris Claiborne remembered the last time he was penalized five times in a game: Never.

In his last year at LSU, Claiborne was penalized just once.

On Sunday afternoon, the Dallas Cowboys' rookie cornerback was flagged twice for being offsides and three times for holding a wide receiver. He also gave up a touchdown, on an incredible one-handed catch by Riley Cooper in the first quarter.

But Claiborne is a talented player who had a bad day during the Cowboys' 38-23 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles.

"I think that I had a rough game out there and did not play my best," Claiborne said. "I got a lot of penalties called on me and I just have to learn from that. I just need to go back and get it fixed."
