I would call the breakdowns in pass protection, poor ball placement and defensive recognition by the QB, poor tackling and run gap discipline by the defense and a lack of adjustments by the offensive and defensive staffs as being a complete breakdown. The only phase that the Cowboys won in this game was special teams.
I think the players played hard. They just didn't get it done.
