    The Cowboys can't shake some protection problems, and they're a big reason for the drop in road points. Yesterday, Cardinals defensive coordinator Ray Horton took a page from New England's game plan, attacking center Phil Costa with inside linebacker blitzes. Two variants of these ILB rushes generated sacks and limited Dallas to field goal attempts.

    Situation 1: First quarter. Arizona has taken a 3-0 lead, but Felix Jones has returned the kickoff 69 yards, from four yards deep in his end zone to the Cardinals 35.

    Ah yes Costa... I remember 1 play where you clearly saw the blitz coming up the middle and he turned left to help Holland

    Result sack....nobody's perfect I guess

    I'm not much of an X's and O's expert, so I would appreciate some informed opinions. Wouldn't running more screens slow down this kind of rush? During camp I thought we were going to run a lot more screens than we have. Any ideas why we don't?

    For the same reason why we can't explain some of the other decisions made by this team and staff.
