Earl Thomas tells Jason Garrett to bring him to Dallas Cowboys

Earl Thomas tells Jason Garrett to bring him to Dallas Cowboys

Even though the Cowboys were hampered by injuries and the six-game suspension of running back Ezekiel Elliott, numerous assistant coaches and coordinators have been called into question. Cowboys' quarterback Dak Prescott had a hard time checking the ball down to his running back, soaring the ball over his head and into the arms of Seahawks' Justin Coleman, who ran it back for a touchdown. "We'll work through this week and see what he's able to do in this game plan". "We're well-prepared for it". Coleman blitzed on two early third downs and Wright came in on another early in the second quarter that forced an incomplete pass that made Dallas settle for a field goal. He has 13 interceptions for the season.

The Rams wrapped up the NFC West Sunday with a 27-23 win over Tennessee in Nashville.

So Jones might may to put Papa John's Extra Large blame on Roger Goodell and the National Football League for its unusual punishment for Elliott as to why his team fell flat, but there were many things that went south for the Cowboys to fall hard from 13-3 and the conference's No. 1 playoff seed.

Both teams struggled to reach the end zone during the first half. If the Seahawks and Falcons both finish 9-7, the Falcons own the tiebreaker by virtue of their 34-31 victory in Seattle on November 20. Prescott also rushed for 21 yards on four carries.

The longest carry was a 9-yarder as he averaged 4.7 per carry. With the entire AT&T Stadium crowd crying for an Elliott handoff, offensive coordinator Scott Linehan instead called a pass that resulted in Prescott scrambling for 1 yard. The Cowboys posted a record of 3-3 in the six games Elliott missed, but they also lost three games when Elliott was on the field.

Bailey, who had two 51-yarders among his four kicks, missed again in the closing seconds. He completed 21-of-34 passes for 182 yards and two interceptions.

Eric Trump: My Dad Sees 'One Color, Green'
MSNBC's Stephanie Ruhle mocked Eric Trump for defending of his father's racist remarks with a complaint about media bias. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) who was present, contradicted him and said the president repeatedly used the racist insult.

"We all know Earl and Earl's a wonderful guy and a great competitor, an incredible player and all that". But despite the occasional improvised big play and the occasional heave to draw a pass interference penalty, there is not enough consistency with Prescott in the passing game to scare anybody.

Wilson saved that scoring chance by recovering a fumble on a bad handoff on the previous play.

PROTECT RUSSELL: Seahawks QB Russell Wilson was sacked seven times last week by the Rams. With Wright back and middle linebacker Bobby Wagner better (if still not 100 percent), there weren't the holes available for Elliott that Gurley saw. "Put it right thee on his facemask and don't give him a chance to drop it".

"I'm a little numb because the way we started, the good feeling, the uptick we had with Zeke coming back", owner Jerry Jones said. "I thought for a huge part tonight we did that". The defense played great, but the offense couldn't do much of anything, despite the return of All-Pro running back Ezekiel Elliott. Coleman got the same penalty, too - a 15-yarder for unsportsmanlike conduct. In his entire tenure the Cowboys have never had a unit ranked higher than 14th in total defense. Seattle forced three while not losing any, a plus-three differential that tied the largest margin of the season (Seattle also was plus-three in a 16-10 win at Los Angeles on October 8). Over in New Orleans, the Atlanta Falcons lost.

Even more impressive for Elliott is that he played well even with Tyron Smith out for the majority of the game because of a pesky right knee injury. He came out after the first series, replaced by Byron Bell.
