    Many fans already knew that Dallas' opponents had the fewest penalty yards and second-fewest penalties last season. But despite being 22nd in penalty yards and 21st in penalties themselves, the Cowboys were hurt by their own penalties more than any other team. (Via @NinerStatsR)

    This is based on Win Percentage Added (WPA). Essentially, the Cowboys' penalties hurt their chances of winning more than any other team's penalties hurt their chances, even though Dallas was called for fewer penalties (and for fewer yards) than most teams.

    So why did our penalties hurt worse? The time they occurred? Yardage lost/not gained? What was it?

    I’ll guess they were game changing penalties like the illegal pretend fake sub and the false start on the long snapper.

    Lack of proper execution stalls drives, takes points off the scoreboard and makes the opponent's day a little brighter.

    Alex Barron called for holding on game winning touchdown by Roy Williams against the Redskins and we ended up losing.

    Lack of preparation + lack of accountability = lotsa soul-sucking penalties.

    Simply put it's the refs.

    I'm not sure the reason, but we have had the least amount of penalties called against our opponents since 2013.

    So true. I don't care what people say. After that 2016 loss to the green bay packers. That was the most one sided screw job I've ever seen. Saints fans are mad and everything but it was one call. The playoff loss to the packers was 4 calls that if any one of them were called correctly we would have won the game.

    Sorry bruh. It's definitely a thing. I used to think it was just being unlucky. 6 years is no coincidence.

    Refs have been attacked with accusations of a bias against the Cowboys. A counter attack is being planned as we speak.

    Blaming lack of preparation and accountability as the reason for other teams not getting penalties called on them is....... about as ****ing stupid as you can sound

    We've had what? 3 penalties/ruling in the last four seasons called against us that hadn't heard of in 20+ years

    With your own lame-axx/no-nothing expertise being employed in judgement, I consider this a compliment.

    Thanks!

    Man I watched that 2016 game with a bunch of the homies. Most were giants fans. 1 falcons fan, an eagles fan, and a couple cowboys fans. Not one person heard of that huddle penalty.

    The 2019 season has not yet begun. Stats about last year are interesting, but not necessarily relevant.
