SEA 23, DAL 15: Cowboys Self-Sabotaging Continues in First Half

While it’s hardly on the same level as last week’s game against the Falcons, the Dallas Cowboys are still making costly mistakes and digging themselves into a hole. They’re now down 23-15 at halftime in their Week 3 matchup with the Seattle Seahawks.

Dak Prescott threw his first interception of 2020 on the final drive of the half, trying to force a ball to Amari Cooper while hoping to get into scoring range. The turnover gave Seattle field position and Russell Wilson eventually found Tyler Lockett for a touchdown before the teams went back to their locker rooms.

One of the worst sequences occurred early in the game following the Seahawks’ first touchdown.  Tony Pollard muffed the kickoff and recovered it at the 1-yard line. This led to a safety as Ezekiel Elliott lost his footing and was touched before getting back over the goal line.

Last week’s hero Greg Zuerlein has missed two extra points, one of which was blocked, to add to the Cowboys’ woes.

Seattle’s lead should be bigger than it is.  At the end of the 1st quarter, D.K. Metcalf was about to walk into the endzone on a 62-yard bomb. However, he got sloppy with the ball and CB Trevon Diggs came in from behind and poked it out just before he broke the plane. The ball went out of the back of the endzone for the turnover.

Diggs’ play was one of the few highlights for the Cowboys defense. Aldon Smith has been bright spot with two sacks and other pressure on Wilson, but otherwise Seattle has been doing mostly what it wants on offense.

Keeping Dallas in the game so far is 181 passing yards from Prescott, which includes a 40-yard touchdown to Cedrick Wilson. They will need more consistent offense though, and way fewer mistakes, if they want to turn things around in the second half.

  1. Big money. Big bragging and hype. Big failures and really BIG LOSERS WITH PLENTY OF EXCUSES since 1993. Maybe they shouldn’t have gotten rid of Garrett. Heavens knows the play calling sucks badly, The players are egotistical money grabbers who follow the typical routine…Cannot play because they are “Hurt” with a boo boo that lower level players suck up to get paid on a minimal contract or are just the routine under talented hyped shite bags we always knew they were before they got the money. I HAVE SEEN BETTER FROM MY LOCAL HIGH SCHOOL TEAM because during the 1st half, I thought I was watching horrific high school team. Thanks Mr.Jones for overpaying your consistent no talent losers. Still no confidence in Dakless Prescott, Eeeky Elliot or Take the money and fail Lawrence nor their coaches. Where is the difference?? You should have left Jimmy Johnson alone when he was winning in the 90s. At least we would have had that. Hope you are happy because we the many decades long fans are definitely not.
