BUF 26, DAL 15: Cowboys Blow Early Lead, Fall to 6-6

The still can't beat good teams, and apparently not even average ones. 's crew was once again outclassed with a 26-15 loss to the , and again the loss felt more due to Dallas' errors than anything their opponent did.

Two offensive turnovers and two missed field goals marked this one. The Cowboys had more first downs and offensive yards than Buffalo but played the sloppier game, and those critical misses and mistakes made all the difference.

threw for 355 yards and two touchdowns but also had an interception and a lost fumble. missed two FG attempts from 35 and 47 yards.

Along with these big plays was an overall poor defensive effort. The Bills ran for 124 total yards, 43 of which belonged to QB Josh Allen. He also had 231 passing yards and a touchdown.

Former Cowboys WR had a nice revenge game; six catches for 110 yards and a touchdown in his return to Dallas.

It was a bad effort across the board. Once again, the Cowboys looked unprepared and unable to execute consistently on either side of the ball.

The loss drops Dallas to 6-6 on the year, though still clinging to the lead in the East. Even if the win this week, they will still be just 6-6 themselves and the Cowboys will maintain their lead thanks to the head-to-head tiebreaker.

FIRE GARRET NOW!!!!!!! I was wanting to see Jones hit the sideline in the last 2 min. and take Garret’s headphones and just point the way off the field.

Jerry says there is zero chance for the Cowboys to win the Super Bowl if Garrett is fired. Ok…be that as it may…there is zero chance they win with him either. I think back to last year when they fired there O line coach and replaced him with Columbo. There was an immediate attitude change as well as a change in the performance on the field. In my view this entire team has become tone deaf to his message…including the assistant coaches. They all realize they are on a sinking ship with a lame duck captain at the helm.
