    However, like I said the offense put up 19.5 points per game in those same 10 games which would be amongst the worst 1/4 in the league. The point per game average they put up in those other six games was 36.0 points per game. Thatís a huge difference. Nearly a 17 point difference for the offense and a 5 point difference for the defense.
    So to recap this for anyone that doesnít like reading paragraphs

    *Dallas scoring offense in 6 games against 5-11 or worse teams: 36.0 points per game

    *Dallas scoring offense against 6-10 or better teams: 19.5 points per game

    That is a 16.5 point per game difference

    *Dallas defense in 6 games against 5-11 or worse teams: 16.5 points per game

    *Dallas defense in 10 games against 6-10 or better teams: 21.6 points per game

    That is a 5.1 point per game difference

    I don't know how you can look at those numbers and claim that Dak did enough to win but the defense is the reason they lost.

    I mean, sure, if the defense shut out every opponent the Cowboys would have gone 16-0.

    The defense certainly did a good job in the losses against the Eagles, Patriots, and Saints, holding those teams to 17, 13, and 12 points respectively. Dak in those three games threw 0 TDs, 2 Ints for a passer rating of around 70.

    It just seems like dak and the offense gets little to no blame at all whereas the defense gets a good majority of blame and I donít think either are justified.
