Jay Ratliff calls Cowboys game 'just another game'

The Dallas Cowboys and defensive tackle Jay Ratliff’s fall out was completed this season when the team released him in October. He signed with the Chicago Bears on November 2, and made his debut against the Minnesota Viking last week. He will be taking on his former team, the Dallas Cowboys on Monday Night Football.

Ratliff doesn’t think it is any more special than any other game.

It’s just another game. It’s just football,” Ratliff said, via Michael Wright of ESPN.com. “I don’t get caught up in all that silly rivalry stuff or some payback. The thing is we’re here to win, and we’re going to give every effort to do that.”

Ratliff played 23 snaps in his debut with the Bears, and earned one assisted tackle in the debut.

“I thought he did some really good things out there,” said defensive end Corey Wootton. “He hasn’t played football in a while, but as the season goes on you’re gonna see him be more and more impactful. We were limiting a little bit in there as far as reps, but he’s definitely a force out there; really stout in the run, did some good things in the pass game. It was good to have him out there.”
