Arlington, Texas – The Dallas Cowboys made an incredible start despite traveling to the AFC West in November and controlling the NFC East.
After being forced to work overtime on Thursday, the Cowboys received two more untimely penalties after winning the ball for the first time and before losing to the Las Vegas Raiders 36-33. It was his third defeat in four Dallas games. All played against the AFC West area.
With a 6-1 record after Halloween’s victory in Minnesota, the Cowboys finished their annual Thanksgiving Games 7-4. They will not play at home again until the day after Christmas.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said, “It was (previously) a home game and I expected to win this game before going out on the road.” “Oakland took advantage of this situation. I call it a throw-up ball. The correct way to play a game like this is to just throw it away and get a penalty.”
Daniel Carson’s 29-yard field goal at the end of the game came after cornerback Anthony Browne was asked for pass interference with a fourth third-down incompleteness. This was part of the 166 penalty yard of the franchise record against Dallas against the 14 flags that came into force.
After a 33-yard penalty marked on Dallas 24, Raiders (6-5) made two running plays to set up the kick, finishing three consecutive losses.
“It’s frustrating, but at the same time you have to deal with it. You have to get over it,” Brown said. “Other teams are dealing with it. They are also called. I can’t complain about it.”
Despite the lack of a top two receiver and Ezekiel Elliott’s prolonged knee injury, Dallas was forced to work overtime with a total of 437 yards and a 45-yard field goal on the Greg Zuerlein.
However, the Cowboys suffered penalties including illegal blocks of kick-off returns and were forced to start overtime from their 7s.
Starting in Dallas in November, Denver had a 30-14 home loss, leading 30-0 in the fourth quarter. The Cowboys defeated Atlanta 43-3 at home the following week before losing 19-9 in Kansas City last Sunday.
Dallas is currently playing three games in a row in New Orleans next Thursday before the division game between Washington and the New York Giants.
The receivers CeeDeeLamb (concussion) and Amari Cooper (COVID-19 protocol) are expected to return to the Saints game. Defensive end Demarcus Lawrence (broken leg) was also able to play for the first time since the opening.
Both Eagles (5-6) and Washington (4-6) won the last two games against the 3-7 teams this weekend. Dallas’ next home game will face Washington during the golden time of December 26th.
“There is a young man on the way who is playing hard with help,” Jones said. “We have a tight schedule in front of us. I’m not talking about relationships with other teams or the strength of the schedule. We’re here and play with any team. And any game. But I know my hands are full.
“We are a team that needs to be better than we are here today to think about our goals for the year,” he said. “We need to be better than today. But the fact is that we can be better. We can be technically and concretely better than today. . “
