Cowboys lose third to the Titans

There is no team in the NFL these days that has more pressure to win in my opinion than the Dallas Cowboys. No matter what team they put on the football field every week, owner Jerry Jones and the sports media tend to put an enormous amount of pressure on America’s team to perform and ultimately to become Super Bowl title contenders.

Coming into this NFL regular season, the consensus around the league was that the Dallas Cowboys were the team to beat in the NFC Conference.

Even though there were plenty of talented teams in the NFC that were thought to be Super Bowl title contenders as well like the Minnesota Vikings, Green Bay Packers and the defending Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints, the Dallas Cowboys seemed to have the edge as it was thought that this was the year everything was finally going to fall into place.

With all that being said and the fact that this season’s Super Bowl will be played at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas, the Dallas Cowboys were destined to make a run at a title, but that just hasn’t been the case early in this season as they have struggled on both sides of the football at times this year with the defense making costly mistakes and the offense not living up to the hype of being one of the best in the NFL.

Regardless of what happen in the first three weeks of the season (1-2 record), Tony Romo and company came off their bye week with high hopes of getting back on track with their second straight win of the season over Vince Young and the Tennessee Titans, but the complete opposite happen as both Vince Young (173 passing yards, two touchdowns) and Chris Johnson (131 rushing yards, two touchdowns) had solid performances and were able to lead the Titans to a 34-27 victory.

Even though the Dallas Cowboys were able to get their offense going at times which resulted in Tony Romo throwing for over 400 yards and three touchdowns and Felix Jones finally having a breakout game with 109 yards rushing, it wasn’t enough and the three costly interceptions that Romo threw were what sealed the deal for Jeff Fisher’s Titans as they came a crucial moments in the game.

Not only were the Cowboys given plenty of opportunities to get back into this game and improve their record to 2-2, but their offense needs work as Tony Romo is turning the football over way too much this season.

I wish I could say that things will only get easier for America’s team moving forward, but that just isn’t the case as they have the third toughest schedule in the league and will face off against Brett Favre and the Minnesota Vikings in Week 6 where they will almost certainly fall to very disappointing record of 1-4.
