One big problem that was not punished earlier was the indiscipline of the defensive line. In the game against the New England Patriots in week 6, the Cowboys were penalized for over 100 yards before luckily being bailed out by an overtime touchdown by CeeDee Lamb. Watching the Thanksgiving game, the Raiders took advantage of the poor concentration and lack thereof by the ‘boys on defense, including getting the guy in the picture above, Anthony Brown, called 4 TIMES FOR PASS INTERFERENCE. Just atrocious by all involved. However, the defense is not the only leaking area on the roster.
Even in the OT win against the Patriots, if Greg connected on all his field goals, overtime would not have commenced (would’ve won by three). These key moments are where the clutch gene comes into place, and so far it hasn’t reached the surface. These three reasons are why the Cowboys may be unsustainable for the remainder of the season and bogey teams when it comes to the playoffs, but then again, they could prove me wrong. Anyway, so what do you think? HOW ‘BOUT DEM COWBOYS?
Well, I am 18 years old currently undergoing my Bachelors of Science in Media and communications. I'm currently in my first semester and I would like to be a sports analyst in the future. I am also from Jamaica. I would like to work at one of the biggest sports companies in the world (ESPN/SKY/BT) but everyone needs a start and I would love it if you were to give me that start.
