The Dallas Cowboys dropped to 2-4 after yet another embarrassing loss at the hands of the Arizona Cardinals on Monday Night Football. Turnovers put them in an early hole, one of which they were never able to climb out of. Surprisingly enough though they still sit in first place in the NFC East division.
Sadly, it was much of the same from the Dallas Cowboys in Week 6. They continue to make the same mistakes week after week with little to no accountability from either the coaching staff or the players. Something needs to be done, but what?
Instead of dwelling on what they could’ve and should’ve done against the Arizona Cardinals, let’s get to this week’s edition of The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. As always, feel free to share your thoughts and opinions on this topic in the comment section.
I’m having to scrape the bottom of the barrel here, but for me the good for the Dallas Cowboys in Week 6 against the Arizona Cardinals was Leighton Vander Esch’s return from injury. After exiting the season opener early against the Los Angeles Rams with a broken collarbone it was good to see No. 55 back in action. I thought the Cowboys would take somewhat of a cautious approach with him coming off of injured reserve, but he actually ended up playing a surprisingly amount of snaps.
Turnovers have been a problem for the Dallas Cowboys all season and sadly enough it didn’t stop in Week 6 against the Arizona Cardinals. Ezekiel Elliott’s two fumbles in the first half resulted in 14 points for the Cardinals and not so surprisingly that was the bad for me this week. Putting themselves in the hole due to turnovers has become commonplace for the Cowboys this season. Unfortunately, only attention to detail has any chance of stopping it from happening.
Zack Martin exiting early… Kyler Murray running wild… Turnovers… I could go on and on. From start to finish this was yet another ugly performance for the Dallas Cowboys. I keep trying to stay optimistic they can turn things around, but even as a naturally optimistic person I’m finding that extremely difficult. It might be time for us to admit to ourselves this team just isn’t any good and we should probably expect more of the same from them the remainder of the season.
