Obviously, there is more than enough blame to go around in the Dallas Cowboys locker room for Sunday’s devastating loss to the Green Bay Packers. As if losing to yet another back-up quarterback wasn’t bad enough, the fact that this loss came when Dallas had a chance to reclaim first place in the NFC East makes it even worse. Let’s examine some of Sunday’s biggest offenders.
The Dallas Cowboys Defense – 36 points should be enough to win any football game. Taking a 23-point lead into halftime, the Cowboys had to simply play the “clock management game” in order to win. Unfortunately, the Packers made some amazing halftime adjustments to score 34-points in the second half. And the blame for that sits squarely on the shoulders of the Cowboys defense, who officially became the worst in franchise history on Sunday by already allowing the most total yards in team history with 5,982.
