FRISCO, Tex. — You could almost call it a tale of two Cowboys teams.
The squad that saw the Colts roll past them 23-0 Sunday probably wasn’t too recognizable to most Dallas fans. It didn’t look like the team that won five-straight showed up in Indianapolis ready to play.
The Cowboys (8-6) came out flat on offense, wore down on defense and failed to clinch the NFC East title.
Ezekiel Elliott ran 18 times for 87 yards and caught seven passes for 41 yards. Amari Cooper had four catches for 32 yards and Dak Prescott was 24 of 39 for 206 yards with one interception.
Dallas gave up its first 100-yard game since Week 9 and endured its first shutout since losing 12-0 to the Patriots on Nov. 16, 2003.
Today at 3 p.m. Central, Cowboys insider Mickey Spagnola will be live on the Silver Star Nation section of the website to take your questions about Sunday’s game — and also what to expect this week.
