45. 16. 123. Final. 30

It has been years since the Dallas Cowboys put up such an abysmal game. This amazing team we’ve seen so far this season either forgot their identity or were just absolutely shell-shocked by a hungrier Denver Broncos team that had more to prove to the football world.

At any rate, yes, Sunday’s 30-16 loss to the Broncos was absolutely terrible. The Cowboys seemed flat, nothing was working, and you could see it all across the team that they didn’t expect to play as poorly they did. In the grand scheme of things, everything will be just fine for America’s Team.

The best teams in the NFL tend to have games like these. You know, a dud of a game where everything goes wrong, utter disappointment is in the air, and everyone starts to say it’s the start of a downward spiral. That bad football games like Sunday’s loss could be a catalyst for worse to come or, a proven recipe for other teams to follow to derail such a solid team when they meet on gameday.

The Dallas Cowboys will be just fine after their embarrassing Week 9 loss

The good news is, the Cowboys will be just fine. These things happen and honestly, no team will win every single game during a regular season. In essence, it’s a good thing this happened as now, the coaches, team leaders, and players can all go over the film to bounce back in Week 10.

The regular season is a long one as it’s best to always take things one week and one game at a time. The Cowboys are still on top of the NFC East at 6-2 which is not bad for going into the month of November. No, it’s not time to hit the panic button or think the Cowboys are done just off of one bad football game.

Whether it was quarterback Dak Prescott being rusty after being out for two weeks or the defense forgetting the fundamental basics of tackling, they will easily regroup sooner rather than later. The coaches know how special this team can be based on everything they’ve accomplished so far this season.

Most importantly, the players know that what happened in Week 9 against the Broncos will never happen again. There is too much talent and well, pride across this entire roster to let that loss set the tone for the rest of this season.

Hot. Dak Prescott can never be this bad ever again. light

Make no mistake about it, the Cowboys will learn from this and make the necessary adjustments and tweaks to get back on track. It’s any given Sunday in the NFL and well, the Broncos got the best of them. There is no sugarcoating it, the Cowboys were the inferior team on Sunday. Luckily, there is still plenty of football left to be played and even more time for the Cowboys to get back to their winning ways.
