Quarterback Dak Prescott #4 of the Dallas Cowboys looks to pass for a second down against the Philadelphia Eagles during the first quarter of the game at Lincoln Financial Field on December 31, 2017 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Kevin Byard sparked the sluggish Titans with an end-zone interception of Dak Prescott and celebrated T.O. -style. The Cowboys beat the trade deadline rush by shipping a first-round pick to the Raiders for wide receiver Amari Cooper on October 22. Quarterback Marcus Mariota and the Titans converted 11 of 14 third downs on the way to victory. He has not played 16 regular-season games in his career, but the coaches kept him out of a meaningless finale in 2016. Dallas went out and traded a first round pick to the Oakland Raiders for Amari Cooper to give their receiving corps a boost. Anything less than a 6-2 finish would leave Garrett with three winning seasons, and two playoff appearances, in eight full seasons. Luckily the rest of the NFC East has had issues as well, still keeping the Cowboys in the race for the top spot in the division.
Prescott committed his first two turnovers at home this season in Dallas' first loss at AT&T Stadium. We are here to play ball, and here to win the game.
" I very candidly didn't see this coming", Jones said after the Cowboys lost at home for the first time this season. A fumble while trying to churn for yardage on a sack at his 40-yard line set up Tennessee's go-ahead touchdown in the third quarter.
The Cowboys had almost two weeks off and made two drastic desperation moves, firing their offensive line coach and trading a first-round pick for an upgrade at wide receiver. 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. Dallas had just 108 yards in the second half - the bulk of those on a desperation drive down two scores late - and was booed several times at the end of failed drives. "We want to play better than we played (Monday), so I certainly think each individual and coach and front-office person is going to have to do better, including me".
