    IRVING, Texas -- The Cowboys’ defense didn’t allow a touchdown Sunday night. That ought to be good enough to win.

    It wasn’t, but the defense didn’t point any fingers after the 13-7 loss to the Redskins. They looked at what they did wrong.

    The lack of turnovers, an issue for the last couple of seasons, topped the list. The defense was also angry that it didn’t finish strong, allowing the Redskins to march down the field for a field goal on their final drive.

    “You think of it from your standpoint on your side of the ball,” said defensive end Marcus Spears, who wasn’t pleased with his performance against the run on that last possession. “You can’t worry about anything else.”

    Good attitude. It would be easy to sit back and point at the Offense.

    They're right too. If they had stopped the run the last drive, maybe we go into OT after a FG. Just like the offense won't point fingers if the defense gives up 30 points and we have to try to win a shootout, the defense can't point fingers when they carry a game. They have to help each other.

    If our defense allowed 6 points a game for the rest of the year, we will be 15-0.

    Spear's comments indciate to me that this is a team that wins or loses as a team and that good individual performances are for naught if they don't win. I'm encouraged by that.
