Jerry Jones is trying to remain supportive of a Dallas Cowboys offense that

has shown only fleeting moments of promise through three weeks of the season.Eight points in the opener and 13 points on Sunday won’t be enough to get victories on the road no matter how well the Cowboys play on defense.“I do think that we do have the talent and I do think that we have the coaching that can get us on the right track offensively Marshawn Lynch Color Rush Jersey ,” Jones said. “We will get on the right track offensively, I’m sure.”The Cowboys offensive issues 鈥?specifically in the passing game 鈥?were exposed again in their 24-13 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.Dak Prescott threw for 168 yards and a touchdown, but most of those came in the fourth quarter when the Cowboys were trying to rally. He averaged just 4.9 yards per pass attempt and the Cowboys were rarely able to push the ball downfield against Seattle’s secondary. The longest pass play was a 20-yarder to tight end Geoff Swaim. The longest catch by a wide receiver was an 18-yarder to Cole Beasley.“We did not do a good enough job of staying ahead of the chains, controlling the line of scrimmage in the passing game like we would have wanted to,” Dallas coach Jason Garrett said. “We did a better job of rallying at the end but certainly not good enough.”The Cowboys trailed 24-6 before finally finding the end zone on Prescott’s shovel pass to Tavon Austin midway through the fourth quarter. It was the one bit of innovation in an otherwise stagnant offensive game plan that should have yielded more success considering how well Elliott was doing on the ground.Elliott rushed for 127 yards on just 16 carries, but even his longest run of the game ended up in disaster for the Cowboys when he fumbled deep in Seattle’s end, getting hit from behind by safety Bradley McDougald.“Our defense started out really great, and we had them on the field too long and they got worn down. We only scored three points in the first half. We’ve got to do better than that,” Elliott said.Seattle found a formula that worked, getting 102 yards rushing from Chris Carson, two touchdown passes from Russell Wilson and two interceptions from unhappy safety Earl Thomas. Thomas, who wants a contract extension or a trade from Seattle, even bowed to the Cowboys sideline after his second interception with 3:09 remaining ended any hopes of a rally by Dallas.Thomas even acknowledged rumors floating around that he could be traded soon and Sunday could have been his last game in Seattle.“I don’t know if it was but I had a damn good time and I’ll go out like that if I have to,” Thomas said.Here’s what else to know from both teams moving to 1-2 for the season:UNDER PROTECTION: Wilson had the cleanest pocket to throw from at any point this season. Seattle’s offensive line that had allowed 12 sacks in the first two weeks neutralized the Dallas pass rush and allowed Wilson time to find receivers. Wilson was sacked only twice Germain Ifedi Color Rush Jersey , one of those when he was tackled at the line of scrimmage. For his part, Wilson made smart, decisive decisions on his throws and didn’t show the hesitations that had thrown off the timing of Seattle’s pass game the first two weeks.INJURY CONCERN: The Cowboys had one significant injury concern to come out of the loss when linebacker Sean Lee aggravated an already troublesome hamstring injury and missed most of the second half. Lee had 11 tackles before being forced to the sideline because of the injury. He had been rotating with rookie Leighton Vander Esch, who also finished with 11 tackles.“It feels like the same deal but I have to get (evaluated) and see where I’m at,” Lee said.CENTURY MARK: Carson’s 102 yards rushing and his touchdown were major milestones for a Seattle run game that’s been absent for more than a season.Carson was the first running back to top 100 yards in the regular season since Thomas Rawls rushed for 106 yards in December 2016 against Carolina. Carson’s TD run was the first by a Seahawks running back since J.D. McKissic found the end zone on a 31-yard run in Week 4 of the 2017 season. Seattle went 14 games without a running back finding the end zone until Carson bulled his way in with 12:54 remaining.FUN WITH NUMBERS: For the first time since 2010, Dallas did not start 2-1 through three games. The Cowboys started 0-2 in 2010, won their third game, and then dropped five straight. Dallas has also lost three straight to the Seahawks. SEATTLE (AP) — By the time December rolls around, the Seattle Seahawks may have more regret than they currently do about what transpired the first two weeks of the regular season.Because in hindsight, those first two games appear such outliers from where the Seahawks are headed based on the way they’ve played for the past month.“I’ll never not be frustrated by the way we started this season, but we’re moving,” Seattle coach Pete Carroll said. “This is kind of how we’ve done it over the years and we got a chance to be a really nice team.”The Seahawks sit at 3-3 going into their bye week, but a .500 record doesn’t fully tell the story of what Seattle has shown through six games.For two weeks, the Seahawks were lost in trying to discover their identity. No matter how much they said during the offseason they were committed to running the ball Patrick Kerney Color Rush Jersey , relying on field position and defense, putting that mission statement into practice when the regular season began proved difficult.That’s why Seattle seemed so out of whack offensively during season-opening losses to Denver and Chicago. It was counter to everything Carroll and his staff preached leading into the opener.And it’s why a reset before Week 3 has proved the difference in putting the Seahawks in position to be part of the playoff conversation as the season progresses.The reset Seattle made offensively before facing Dallas in Week 3 involved two key aspects. The first happened on the offensive line. D.J. Fluker returned from injury and was slotted in at right guard, sliding veteran J.R. Sweezy over to left guard. The shuffling on the line instantly made Seattle a significantly better run-blocking team. Fluker has put together his own personal highlight tape of flattening defenders in recent weeks, while Sweezy’s demeanor and style is akin to the Seattle teams he played for several years ago when the Seahawks were making Super Bowls.The second came with Seattle’s stable of running backs. Rather than trying to be equitable, as the Seahawks were through the first two weeks, the decision was made to make Chris Carson the primary ball carrier. No more splitting carries just for the sake of doing so. Only when Carson needed a break would another back get the chance.The results for the past four games — when the Seahawks have gone 3-1 — have completely changed the course of Seattle’s season. In those four games combined, Seattle is one of three teams to have rushed for more than 600 yards, along with the Rams and Cowboys. The Seahawks’ 180 total rushing attempts are second only to the Rams. In the past four games, Seattle has 142 rushes, the most of any team during that span.And the Seahawks are getting these yards with only limited contribution from Russell Wilson as a running threat a year after he was Seattle’s leading rusher.At a time the league is going wild with passing and scoring, the Seahawks are bucking the offensive trend in the other direction with a formula that appears to be working.“This is winning football,” Seattle wide receiver Doug Baldwin said. “You run the ball, you convert on third down in passing game when you have to. You play stifling defense and stopping the run, and you don’t turn the ball over. Usually you win the games when you do that.”The most telling stat comes from looking at Wilson’s numbers. In the first two games Steve Largent Color Rush Jersey , he was sacked 12 times, completed just 59.4 percent of his throws and had a passer rating of 89.3. In the four games since, Wilson is completing 67 percent while attempting significantly fewer throws; has a passer rating of 116; and has been sacked seven times.Just as eye opening is his lack of runs: Wilson has just 17 rushes for 62 yards through six games. Last year, Wilson had already run 32 times.“Russell’s doing more than he’s ever done before. He’s orchestrating and controlling the play calling, the adjustments at the line of scrimmage when he can,” Carroll said. “He’s just been brought to a different level of responsibility and he’s doing a nice job with it. He’s putting us in position to run the ball effectively now as well as in the passing game, so he’s grown, yeah he’s improved.”Whether that formula is capable of keeping Seattle in the playoff race will be tested when it returns from the bye. The Seahawks face a challenging five-week stretch in which four of the five opponents have above-.500 records. Three of those games — at Detroit, vs. Green Bay, at Carolina — come against teams Seattle could end up competing against for a wild-card berth.“There’s a real style about it where we can sense now. It’s one week at a time, we just need to keep riding that and see how far it takes us,” Carroll said.
