The Dallas Cowboys’ Offensive Numbers Have Fallen And They Must Get Up

The Dallas Cowboys’ Offensive Numbers Have Fallen And They Must Get Up.

The stink of the Dallas Cowboys’ offensive performance against the New Orleans Saints two weeks ago still lingers just a bit entering Sunday’s game with the New York Giants. For 14 days the Cowboys have had to sit and stew about their numbing offensive numbers against the Saints.

Entering this game things have to change offensively for the Cowboys to contend in the NFC East. But where exactly? The truth is the performance against the Saints had been brewing for weeks. But many Cowboys fans were so focused on the woes of the defense that it took a stinker like the Saints game to get everyone to focus on the offense.

How so? Well, consider yards per play as an appetizer. Last year the Cowboys averaged 5.7 yards per play. This season they’ve averaged 5.5 yards per play. But that number drops in their last three games (5.0) and their last game (4.5). The Cowboys aren’t getting the ball downfield as consistently as they did earlier this season.
