One sad Cowboys fans summed up Monday night’s loss in a perfect way.
Ezekiel Elliott had two early fumbles and was benched for a period of time in favor of Tony Pollard. That tells the story alone. Andy Dalton ended up throwing 54 passes on the night as his team trailed throughout, and it is a miracle he only ended up with two interceptions.
The fans in attendance at AT&T Stadium paid a lot of money, during a pandemic, to be tortured for three hours, and one fan in particular summed up the feeling of the fanbase with one sad look that not even his significant other could fix.
Cowboys fans getting used to life without Dak Prescott
The Cowboys offense was humming at the start of the season. The problem was the defense being awful. But Prescott was there to put up huge numbers and an NFC East title appeared to be a given.
Dallas remains atop the pitiful division even at 2-4. However, games this like don’t inspire much confidence and fans like the one in the above video are coming to grips with the reality of what appears to be a painful stretch of football ahead.
The offensive line has been decimated with injuries, Prescott is out, Elliott has butter hands and the defense remains awful. Can you blame the fan for not knowing what else to do other than cover his eyes?
Dallas has two wins this season. One was an amazing comeback against the Atlanta Falcons and the other was a three-point win in a shootout against the lowly New York Giants. Will things get better? That is all you can tell distraught Cowboys fans at this point. The NFC East is awful and the Cowboys are no exception.
