Mariota, Titans take down Cowboys in Dallas

Mariota, Titans take down Cowboys in Dallas

FRISCO, Texas - To owner and general manager Jerry Jones, quarterback Dak Prescott remains the long-term answer for the Dallas Cowboys, even after two turnovers played a big part in Monday night's loss to the Tennessee Titans. With eight games left, the Cowboys (3-5) still have a mathematical chance to win the NFC East or earn a wild-card bid, but all of their faults were on display against the Titans. This win by the Titans (4-4) ended their three-game losing streak while handing the Cowboys (3-5) their first loss in four home games and making their road to the playoffs a hard one. Dallas went out and traded a first round pick to the Oakland Raiders for Amari Cooper to give their receiving corps a boost.

With road games coming up against the Philadelphia Eagles, who are coming off their bye week, and the Atlanta Falcons, who have won three in a row, the Cowboys find themselves with their season the line. Prescott looked for him early and often, but the two couldn't connect enough in the second half, when Tennessee shut out Dallas. Offensively the running game was there, where Zeke picked up around 26 yards alone on his first three carries. Amari Cooper caught five passes for 58 yards and a touchdown in his team debut, and fellow receiver Allen Hurns also caught a scoring pass for the Cowboys (3-5). He has run for 247 yards and two scores. One thing Prescott didn't do last night was run the ball.

Mariota was 21 of 29 for 240 yards without an interception and had 32 yards rushing.

Prescott committed his first two turnovers at home this season in Dallas' first loss at AT&T Stadium. "I've just have to throw it out of the back of the end zone at that point".

"I was actually expecting somebody to knock my head off", said Byard, who thought about the possible celebration at the team hotel. "Had we played a lot better tonight and had the loss, then I would be more positive about that". Witten waved, smiled and tapped his chest around his heart several times as the crowd roared.

Linebacker Sean Lee is expected to be out a few weeks at least after re-aggravating his hamstring injury.

As they celebrate the recent victory, Titans fans across the country will gather at the polls to cast a vote in the elections as the Titans prepare to take on next week's opponent at home in the New England Patriots (7-2). The Cowboys don't have a first round pick in the upcoming draft.
