Mariota magic as Titans stifle stumbling Cowboys

"Listen, Dak is the quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys", Jones said on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas on Tuesday.

And the normally upbeat owner and general manager doesn't care to discuss the NFC East standings, even though the Cowboys can pull even with defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia by getting their first road win of the season at the Eagles on Sunday.

The Titans took a 21-14 lead when Mariota hit Smith for a 7-yard scoring pass with 5:44 left in the third quarter.

The Titans (4-4) stopped a three-game losing streak while handing the Cowboys (3-5) their first loss in four home games and giving Dallas a hard road to recovery for the playoffs.

We can tell you Tierney is leaning toward the over, but his much stronger play is on the side. Recently Dallas thought it was their new offensive line coach, Paul Alexander, so they sent him his walking papers and promoted Marc Colombo to offensive line coach. The Cowboys beat the trade deadline rush by shipping a first-round pick to the Raiders for wide receiver Amari Cooper on October 22. 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.

Prescott threw two touchdown passes in the first half, and the game was tied at 14 at the break.

The trial could take up to 3 weeks and the judge will have the duty of going thru all the info and making a decision. His lawyer Lance Spiegel added that Brad "adamantly disputes the contention that he has not paid child support".

Once again, the Cowboys' failure to convert red zone pressure into points proved costly, with the tone for another dismal showing set on an early drive which ended with a missed Brett Maher field goal.

When asked if there was any scenario in which he would make an in-season firing, Jones simply said, "no".

"Tonight's game did not - did not, I emphasize - impact my future look at Dak Prescott", Jones said after the game. "So I mean that's the difference right there, 14 points". The interception was the game-changer.

While it's realistic to expect Prescott and Cooper to need time to work together and an offensive line to adjust to an in-season coaching change, the Cowboys are running out of it.

"The defense didn't play well enough in the game", Garrett said. "We've got to buckle down, lock arms and be together more than ever". But Garrett acknowledged that the QB's play hurt Dallas at times in the loss to Tennessee. The Cowboys likely open with a run and the Titans have a strong run defense. Jones declined several chances to address that issue. We go down there and I try to force the ball and give it right back to them. "I felt good going into this one and to come out with this loss to be 3-5 is very disappointing".
