Cowboys’ playoff hopes end even Zeke back

Free Shipping

Running back Ezekiel Elliott wholesale jerseys free shipping returned Sunday, but the Dallas Cowboys‘ season ended anyway.

The Cowboys lost to the Seattle Seahawks 21-12, bringing to a close any playoff possibilities with their Week 17 finale against the Philadelphia Eagles next Sunday left to play.

“It’s really disappointing,” tight end Jason Witten said. “We had a chance and fought there at the end. It’s not overly complicated. Opportunities in this league are fleeting. You have to take advantage of them when you can. We just weren’t able to do that with well enough.”

Sunday started well enough for the Cowboys, with the Detroit Lions losing to the Cincinnati Bengals and the Atlanta Falcons losing to the New Orleans Saints. It could have been made even better if not for the Carolina Panthers’ last-minute victory against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

But all of it meant nothing because the Dallas offense failed to score a touchdown for the fourth time this season. Quarterback Dak Prescott was intercepted twice and saw a pick returned for a touchdown for the fourth time this season when Justin Coleman cheap jerseys came away with an errant dump-off to Elliott on the Cowboys’ second play of the second half.

Wide receiver Dez Bryant wholesale free shipping jerseys, meanwhile, had perhaps his lowest moment with the Cowboys (8-7), dropping a first-quarter pass, fumbling a second-quarter reception and dropping a third-quarter dump-down.

Garrett has a 67-55 record, including his 5-3 mark as the interim coach in 2010, and has led the Cowboys to the playoffs twice in 2014 and ’16. The Cowboys had home-field advantage through the playoffs last season with a 13-3 record but lost to the Green Bay Packers in the divisional round.

Garrett signed a five-year deal after directing the Cowboys to a 12-4 record in 2014.

He was not interested in talking about his wholesale jerseys future on Sunday.

“My job is to [do] the best job for this football team,” Garrett said. “It was a tough loss for us today, and we’re going to get back to work and try to finish strong.”

After last year, coordinators Scott Linehan wholesale authentic jerseys free shipping (offense), Rod Marinelli (defense) and Rich Bisaccia (special teams) signed extensions. A number of assistants have expiring contracts, though.

They will carry what ifs with them regarding Elliott’s absence. They went 3-3 without his wholesale jerseys free shipping, but the offense was unable to generate a touchdown in the three losses, and the passing game became stale without the threat of Elliott.

It wasn’t better on Sunday with him. Prescott threw for 182 yards, completing 21 of 34 passes. It was the seventh time this season he did without not throw for at least 200 yards.

But when it mattered most, the Cowboys went with the pass instead of handing the ball to Elliott.

“It was just one of those days,” Elliott said. “Everything that could have gone wrong went wrong. We beat ourselves.”

And they will have to watch the playoffs with wholesale jerseys free shipping as a result.
