Can’t tell you why the Cowboys are losing, but it’s not on Dak Prescott

The Dallas Cowboys have underwhelmed all season long thus far and though there are a few reasons for it, Dak Prescott isn’t one of them.

The Dallas Cowboys did it again. Yep, they were defeated again on Sunday.

Right before the game started, I found myself asking myself, “we couldn’t lose to the Brownies, could we?” Well, just a few short hours later and after mild heart palpitations might I add, I had an answer.

The story was a similar one to the same one we have experienced throughout the rest of the season. The offensive line gave up a pressure or two, special teams weren’t all the way there, and the defense allowed way too much opposing production.

That’s why the Cowboys got beat. When they needed to make a big stop yesterday to get the Browns off the field, they were unable to come up with it.

The Cleveland Browns made a couple of huge third-down receptions and conversions, but it was the running game that murdered us. Listen, Trevon Diggs has to be the unluckiest defensive back on the face of the planet, as he has had several world-class catches made on him in every game it seems.

Going back to the Los Angeles game, where he was right there and in position, playing it as well as it could be played without drawing a penalty. Somehow, the receiver came up with it and made a play.

In the Seattle game and although it was more over the top, there was a play or two of a similar nature made there as well. It was exactly that way in the Atlanta game as the wide receiver Russell Gage made an unbelievable grab on him.

It was more of the same yesterday as Jarvis Landry proceeded to make JUGS machine catch after catch on the defensive back. He may have or could have played some a slight bit better, but to be honest, he has just caught some of the toughest breaks as well.
