The Dallas Cowboys fall to 3-9 on the year after yet another disappointing loss to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 13. Another loss continues to firmly submit the Cowboys at the bottom of the NFC East division and with four games left on the year that spot could be all but solidified.
Not so surprisingly, the Dallas Cowboys inability to stop the run once again proved their downfall against the Baltimore Ravens. QB Lamar Jackson and the rest of the Ravens rushing attack paved the way to a rather easy victory. Sadly this has become a theme for the Cowboys defense this year.
Before I get to off-topic or start rambling, let’s get to this week’s edition of The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. As always, please feel free to use the comment section to voice your own thoughts and opinions on this topic.
The only good I could come up with for the Dallas Cowboys in this Week 13 matchup with the Baltimore Ravens was the way the offense surprisingly played. Andy Dalton and company was able to move the ball down the field into scoring position on several occasions, even with a patchworked offensive line. Against a pretty good Ravens defense that saying something. It wasn’t enough of course to pull off the upset, but at least it means not everything was a complete disaster.
I think the Dallas Cowboys bad was pretty obvious from the very beginning against the Ravens. I knew Baltimore’s rushing attack would be a problem for the Cowboys defense and that was definitely the case. It started with a 37 yard touchdown run from QB Lamar Jackson and continued from there. This was one of those strength against weakness matchups where Baltimore’s running game took advantage of Dallas’ abysmal run defense.
In what was yet another embarrassing performance by the Dallas Cowboys there were plenty of things to choose from for this category. For me though the ugly from this Week 13 matchup was the lack of execution. Blown assignments, mental mistakes, and just plain poor play once again reared their ugly head. There is absolutely no one taking accountability for something that has continuously been allowed to happen throughout the 2020 season and that’s inexcusable.
