Jason Witten, offense dropped ball in loss
Apparently, the Cowboys left their solid execution and big-play offense in New Jersey. Dallas had five drops on Sunday in a 27-7 loss to the Seattle Seahawks at CenturyLink Field, just one aspect of a day when little went right.
After such an impressive Week 1 showing by the offense in the 24-17 victory over the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants, the Cowboys couldn't get the job done Sunday when they needed it.
"That wasn't Cowboys football," Witten said. "It's unacceptable. We have to get it fixed. You can't have a big win on the road like [the Giants game] and then come back and play as bad as we did.
"We didn't play good football and I didn't play good football. Too many drops and too many opportunities missed. You can't do that and win games in this league."
