Stop me if you’ve heard this before: the Cowboys offense is not good this year. Yes, the offense featuring the 2016 Offensive Rookie of the Year and the 2016 rushing champion looks absolutely awful through three games. In fact, the only offense to have scored less points so far is the Arizona Cardinals, who just benched their quarterback for rookie Josh Rosen.
Dallas doesn’t have those kinds of questions, though - at least, they’re not supposed to. Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott are supposed to be the franchise centerpieces, but both have struggled in different ways. Dak has had a rougher go of it, for sure, and the passing offense is particularly bad. Part of the issue is that Prescott has been sacked 11 times so far, which is tied for fifth most in the NFL.
For a team whose offensive line is stocked full of All Pro’s and blue-chip talent, that shouldn’t be happening. How can Dak be successful if he’s getting sacked so frequently? Answer: he really can’t. But what is the source of these sacks? Below is a montage of all 11 Dak sacks so far.
Which brings us to our question of the day:
Who is most to blame for Dak getting sacked this much?

The offensive line
Receivers not getting open
