For the second week in a row the Cowboys offense has been absolutely abysmal. For the first time in his career, Dak Prescott throws three interceptions and looks absolutely terrible doing so.
That's for the best, really. The Cowboys don't deserve to mislead people with garbage time points.— David Helman (@HelmanDC) November 20, 2017
Think that pick also cements this as the single worst performance of Dak Prescott's career. No way around it.
If Chaz Green was the reason for the loss last week...face facts the quarterback sucked tonight...— ✭Michael Sisemore✭ (@MrSisemore) November 20, 2017
Now, one worse-than-bad game doesn’t make him a terrible quarterback for all the Tony Romo folks still hanging on to false hope. It is clear though that Ezekiel Elliott is by far the MVP of this offense. Without him, it doesn’t work in the least bit.
Playing without Ezekiel Elliott and Tyron Smith, the Cowboys have lost each of their last 2 games by 20+ points. It is the 1st time the Cowboys have lost consecutive games by 20-or-more since 2004, when they suffered 3 straight such losses— James Palmer (@JamesPalmerTV) November 21, 2017
Love Romo. Love Dak. When the former had a trash outing, I didn't give a pass and won't do it with the latter.— Patrik Walker (@VoiceOfTheStar) November 20, 2017
Praise for greatness. Criticism for sub-par play. Them's the rules. https://t.co/340p5qQ9dj
Nobody feels sorry for teams without their better players but this Cowboys offense leaves you with no confidence going forward. The real problem for the Cowboys is that nobody scares you on this offense. Without Elliott, none of these skill players add much of anything. When it rains, it pours.

That's Dak's first interception since Oct. 8, against Green Bay. Coincidentally, that interception was also a bobbled ball by Terrance Williams.— David Helman (@HelmanDC) November 20, 2017
These offensive weapons need to be revamped. Dak and Dez STILL can’t make a consistent connection. Witten is close to the end of his career. 83 is 83. Butler goes missing and unused. Beasley and Brown can stay. We gotta start churning soon.— (@DCBlueStar) November 20, 2017
The worst part of this entire game was the fact that the Cowboys’ defense kept them in it a lot longer than expected but the offense did absolutely nothing.
Cowboys defense has been magnificent tonight. They've given the offense more than enough opportunities to build a lead. They're playing, and have been holding, a quality offense and quarterback.— RJ Ochoa (@rjochoa) November 20, 2017
Tonight is on the offense.
Cowboys inept offense is putting an enormous amount of pressure on their defense. At some point that dam is going to break.— RJ Ochoa (@rjochoa) November 20, 2017
At some point, you knew that the Cowboys defense was going to break and that’s what happened in the second-half. The defense got off the field multiple times and Dallas wasn’t able to do anything. Six of the Eagles seven first half drives ended with zero points, the Cowboys got nine points out of it.
Well...there you go, rout is on, Cowboys defense did everything in first half, the offense is to blame for not putting up points.— ✭Michael Sisemore✭ (@MrSisemore) November 20, 2017
So, the Cowboys sit at 5-5, still somehow in the wildcard playoff hunt but have to turn around and play another game in just a few days. By the way, the Chargers may be wildly inconsistent but they just hung 50+ points on the Bills and they have this:

Everything the Cowboys have showed us over the past few weeks points to the fact that they are non-threatening on offense. It’s not impossible for them to make the turnaround as they have a rather weak schedule coming up but their lack of execution is more than troubling for their playoff hopes. Plus, they are extremely dependent on the players they don’t have right now.
But i'll keep hoping I'm wrong— ✭Michael Sisemore✭ (@MrSisemore) November 20, 2017
That’s all she wrote for this week’s Tweetcap, hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving and that the Cowboys give you something to smile about.
