DALLAS — Jason Witten and Barry Church helped the Cowboys score a huge comeback win in San Fran, but on Monday back in Dallas they were looking for a much bigger win.

DALLAS -- With Attorney General Loretta Lynch in town, Witten and Church took part in a Community Policing Youth Forum at Skyline High.

It’s all part of Obama Administration’s new National Community Policing Week, which looks to build trust and respect between communities and cops.

“Controversy and challenge to me are just opportunities,” said Attorney General Lynch. “They’re just opportunities to sit down and have an honest, hard discussion.”

The football field has been a huge part of the national conversation this year. In San Francisco, the Boys were where the entire kneel down protest began with Colin Kaepernick.

“The neat thing about the platform and privilege we have as members of the Dallas Cowboys and the National Football League is that we understand that with that platform comes a duty and that duty is to serve and to unite,” said Jason Witten. “That’s the opportunity that we felt was presented to us to unite our community and to gather with them, not just with our community here in Dallas, but to take the lead and to try to advance the ball to find solutions moving forward for our country.”

Well, maybe some of the most standout members of America’s Team can be a huge part of addressing and solving some America’s problems, one yard at a time.
