Is Cowboys' Garrett starting to sour on QB Prescott?

Cowboys' Offense More Dangerous After Ezekiel Elliott's Return Dallas Cowboys: 3 Big takeaways from loss vs. Titans in Week 9

The Tennessee Titans are bad on offense, literally bottom of the league. They have lost three straight games after starting the season 3-1 and are looking to do anything to stop that slide.

The Dallas Cowboys entered Monday's night game against the Tennessee Titans sitting at 3-4. The Dallas Cowboys defense should easily handle the Titans inconsistent offense even without David Irving.

It looks like we will get a two-in-one of classic celebration tributes this weekend in the NFL. Lewis had 122 total yards (62 rushing, 60 receiving) and safety Kevin Byard recorded an interception as the Titans (4-4) snapped a three-game losing streak.

Injuries have pretty much derailed the first half of the season for the Dallas Cowboys "elite" offensive line. Fifteen plays later the Titans scored a touchdown to tie the game at 7-all. In fact, they are now ranked 31st in the National Football League in the passing game. They didn't have any more turnovers and never trailed again. Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott faced a 2nd and goal from the Tennessee 6-yard-line on the play.

How will the second half play out? The blocking up front has not been great and as a result, the running game has suffered and Mariota has been running for his life at times.

The Cowboys did get another early crack at the Titans end zone soon afterward, however, when Mariota fumbled after being sacked on his 31-yard line and the Cowboys recovered the ball. "We just didn't play very well". Coming off the bye week, they felt like they had a solid week of preparation with quarterback Dak Prescott calling it "chippy", but in a good way.

Who covers the Cowboys vs. Titans spread?

The Titans are facing a team that is predicated on its run game. "He's young and he's going to get extended". Clearly, Byard made it off of the field untouched on Monday night. The Dallas Cowboys have not been a whole lot better, but they have at the very least seen some success. The mistake could come back to haunt Dallas as the game progresses. For the Titans to win this game Monday, the defensive intensity level can not drop and someone has to step up and be the hype man for that team.

To come up empty at AT&T Stadium, where they had been flawless thus far this season, can be viewed only as deflating. Hopefully for their sake, they get it all together for this prime time game.
