The chestnuts are good, the Packers are bad, the bills lousy
Sunday’s result: 30-16 loss to the Denver Broncos
I thought the 2021 Cowboys were on top of that. Shame on me. Shame on them.
The Broncos – fresh out of the business of one of the greatest players in franchise history, von Miller – went on the road and hit straight Dak prescott and the Cowboys in the face. That final score does not do the loss justice, as Denver led 30-0 midway through the fourth quarter.
After missing Dallas wins in Week 8 at Minnesota Due to calf strain, Dak took over the reins of Cooper rush … and looked horrible. Having entered this game with a perfect completion rate of 73.2 percent, Prescott was only able to connect on 19 of his 39 shots. Intrinsically, that’s what the Cowboys’ first eight possessions produced: four punters, three turnovers on downs and one interception. Meanwhile, Dan Quinn’s defense gave up 190 rushing yards, the worst of the season, with Javonte williams and Melvin gordon in turn slashing the ‘Boys.
With the loss of the Packers and Rams on Sunday, Dallas could have emerged as the biggest threat to seeded Arizona in the first-round bypass race. But after the loss, the Cowboys hold the lowest place of division heads at n ° 4. They weren’t supposed to be the same old Cowboys. They had played well in every phase during a six-game winning streak. But Mike McCarthy’s group just didn’t show up at Jerry World on Sunday.
