Dak Prescott's and Jason Garrett's futures on line after another Cowboys loss

Titans-Cowboys Marcus Mariota vs. Dak Prescott

Titans-Cowboys Marcus Mariota vs. Dak Prescott

It was a celebration that proved a bit premature.

The Cowboys are only at the midway point of the season, but Monday's 28-14 loss to the Tennessee Titans seemed crushing.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones reacts during training camp at River Ridge Fields.

"I think we realize we have eight games to go, we've got a long way to go in this season", Jones said.

By intercepting Prescott in the end zone, Byard took away what could have been another touchdown for the Cowboys.

Head coach Jason Garrett said the quarterback tried to lay the ball over the underneath defender and just didn't get a good look. "That was big in the game". It was his third lost fumble of the last two games and fourth of the season. The defense had already posed for another group photo, like it had after two fumbles by Mariota, before the play was overturned on a replay review. Cooper played well in his Cowboys debut, catching five passes for 58 yards and a touchdown. Wesley Woodyard recovered, and like the Titans did after Prescott's first turnover, they turned it into a touchdown for a 21-14 lead. "Our defense gets us a turnover and we're up seven points". "You can't just do it in the first quarter and expect the game to go your way".

A pair of 3-4 teams coming off a bye meet up in Dallas on "Monday Night Football" when the Cowboys and Titans clash at 8:15 p.m. ET.

Everything changed with Dak Prescott's throw to Cooper in double coverage in the end zone with a 7-0 lead. There was a missed field goal before Cooper's TD, and Prescott's interception after that in their first home loss this season. "We want to play better than we played (Monday), so I certainly think each individual and coach and front-office person is going to have to do better, including me".

Dallas finds itself two games below.500 for the first time since the end of the 2015 season. Dallas went out and traded a first round pick to the Oakland Raiders for Amari Cooper to give their receiving corps a boost. Elliott had 17 carries for 61 yards. Mariota will more than likely not have an offensive line that will keep him clean in the pocket, so for the Titans to win, he must break the pocket and make some plays in the passing game and in the running game as well. "Simple as that", said Prescott, who lost a fumble at his 40-yard line to set up Tennessee's tiebreaking score in the third quarter. That is three more than his rookie season in 2016, and just short of the 32 sacks last season.
