Jerry Jones: Cowboys 'not in anything' without improved play

Cowboys' Offense More Dangerous After Ezekiel Elliott's Return

Cowboys' Offense More Dangerous After Ezekiel Elliott's Return

"We're not in anything if we don't play better, " Jones said after a 28-14 loss to the Titans that looked like it could be a blowout win for Dallas midway through the first quarter. "I thought we would be sitting here with a positive result".

The Cowboys traded for a new No. 1 receiver in Amari Cooper and fired offensive line coach Paul Alexander during a surprisingly busy open week.

Prescott is under contract through 2019, but the Cowboys can begin negotiations on an extension after this season if they choose. But, on the ensuing drive, Byard picked off an overthrown pass by Dallas quarterback Dak Prescott in the end zone.

"I very candidly didn't see this coming", Jones said.

After leading the Cowboys to a 13-3 mark in 2016, when he threw 23 touchdown passes and just four interceptions on his way to winning the Rookie of the Year award, Prescott is 12-12 in his past 24 games with 32 touchdown passes and 18 interceptions.

Since taking over for Phillips, Garrett has posted a 70-58 record with just two playoff appearances and one postseason victory.

Prescott committed his first two turnovers at home this season in Dallas' first loss at AT&T Stadium. He has run for 247 yards and two scores. "We've got to buckle down, lock arms and be together more than ever".

Garrett revealed a possible crack Tuesday. A few weeks after strongly backing Scott Linehan when asked if he still had faith in his offensive coordinator, Garrett had a different tone when asked if he envisioned a scenario where he took over play-calling. The Cowboys play the 4-4 Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field. "He's young and he's going to get extended".
