CLE 31, DAL 14: Cowboys Repeating Mistakes in 1st-Half Blowout

The Dallas Cowboys should replace The Star on their helmets with a shovel, because they keep digging themselves into trouble this season. Two turnovers and abysmal defense have them trailing the Cleveland Browns 31-14 at halftime of their Week 4 matchup.

Ezekiel Elliott is rushing better today than he did last week in Seattle with 46 yards on just eight carries. But he also had a fumble, Zeke’s third already in 2020, to set up the Browns for one of their four touchdowns.

Dak Prescott has been great; two touchdowns and 197 yards on 13/16 passing. But he also had a first-half fumble to give Cleveland good field position and another score.

Dak’s fumble came on a strip sack by Myles Garrett, who was abusing right tackle Terence Steele in the beginning of the game. Steele, who was benched at halftime last week, looked no better today and was replaced by Brandon Knight after the turnover.

Dallas would still be in this game despite the turnovers, though, if their defense was accomplishing anything on the field. The Cowboys have been completely run over by the Browns offense with 164 rushing yards allowed in just the first half.

A familiar foe is also having his way with Dallas; receiver Odell Beckham has five catches for 81 yards and two touchdowns. He’s been wide open on a few plays and the Cowboys seem to have no answer for anything Cleveland’s doing offensively.

Will the Cowboys be able to mount another comeback against this 17-point deficit? We’ll find out soon.

What do you think?

  1. I thought without Smiling Dopey Opie we would have a chance. Then COVID cost us the chance to get extra practice with a first year coach. Obviously they needed that extra practice . Fire Dumb and Dumber, Jerry and Stephen, let Will McClay run the team. The Jones’s are jokes. Haven’t won anything since Jimmy’s players retired

  2. Is ridiculous shame on the team. The owner should resign and the coach staff. How Can you win a game with this type of defense. Every year the same song. Last week we lost the game for bad call a week before was the same bad call from the coach. When we are going to learn to play.a good football. The whole team don’t have a discipline , shame on us is time to do something about team. How can you let another team humiliated you in your own stadium.

  3. Jerry….Hey Jerry…..Please beg Jimmy Johnson to come back out of retirement. Your choice of coaches and the overwhelming list of under-performing overpaid players through the decades are staggering. Where’s Waldo and Eeky Elliot? They got the big money but not the performances. You are paying and we are crying again. Who in Hell’s name has been doing the scouting when you promise the contracts?. Stevie Wonder? The good players leave annually and you keep the mediocre ones. The draft fell in your lap but you still cannot make the grade with this team of “supposed” talent. Immediate Advice from a fan: FIRE MCCARTHY! I would rather have Romo as the head coach but then, again, you weren’t focused on winning as much as the $ 5.1 Billion stock value. It’s time for the front office to use some damn sense and stop looking for yes men and focusing on the stock value. I am only concerned, as most fans, about winning. Your fans are pissed off!! Get it?? Probably NOT! Maybe send lollipops to the locker room after each losing game or better yet get the writers to tell you about optimism for the fans and how it’s not all that bad so far. You just don’t get it !! America loves winners.
