"You can say whatever, but at the end of the day, when you've got the ball in your hands, that's the team in your hands", Elliott said after the loss, according to ESPN's Todd Archer. The biggest issue remains their passing game as they once again had a hard time getting things going in this regard.
Elliott, whose 7.9 yards per rush were the second-best of his career in a game, was flagged for an illegal touch of a forward pass on what would have been a 31-yard touchdown catch in the second quarter and later fumbled the ball away in the fourth while the Cowboys were driving down 24-6. "Even pregame, a couple Cowboys coaches came up to me, I don't know if they were playing psychological games, but they were like, 'You ready for the trade tomorrow?'" "I'm just speaking on our go-to concepts or go-to beaters or whatever it may be that we didn't get to".
The loss dropped the Cowboys to 1-2 on the season, though their 23-year-old running back has recorded 311 yards from scrimmage and two touchdowns through three games.
There was hope they had found something the previous week, as they were able to put plenty of good plays together in order to get a win against the New York Giants. Heath departed with a left ankle injury earlier in the drive and Wilson found Lockett streaking up the sideline.

Solid performances abounded - Chris Carson logged over 100 yards rushing and the first touchdown by a running back in almost an entire year.
For the first time this season, the Seattle Seahawks played complementary football.
"This is the offense we claimed to be the whole offseason", Carson said.
