The Dallas Cowboys had an absolutely abysmal performance against the San Francisco 49ers and barely beat the Los Angeles Chargers. Things are not looking too good as the season starts to ramp up.

After a shaky week three performance and a bounce-back victory over the Patriots in week four, the Dallas Cowboys had a tough upcoming game against the undefeated San Francisco 49ers in week five. 

Yet, things didn’t go according to plan against the 49ers, as the Cowboys got demolished 42-10. It was one of the worst quarterback and overall team performances I have ever seen. No one on the Cowboys rose to the occasion; it was a horrid performance from both the offense and defense. 

I will give credit to the 49ers; they played a great game; however, I will not give credit to the Dallas Cowboys offense and Dak Prescott. The offense generated just barely over 200 yards and scored a singular touchdown. Prescott, who I thought got out of his slump from last season, threw three interceptions in one game. Prescott had looked consistent during the first few games; I actually thought he looked like a top-ten quarterback at the time. But he disappointed Cowboys fans yet again against the 49ers. Last year, he threw more interceptions than games he played, and now he’s back to that form. 

Prescott is not the only one responsible for the loss; football is a team sport, after all. The Dallas Cowboys defense, which was thought to be one of the best in the NFL, gave up 42 points against the 49ers. Star defensive end Michah Parsons seemed to have no impact whatsoever. The Cowboys secondary was atrocious, allowing 49ers tight end George Kittle to score three touchdowns. 

What was supposed to be an exciting matchup between two NFC top teams turned into a routing of the Cowboys. The team then hoped to bounce back against the Los Angeles Chargers in week six before heading into a bye in week seven. The Cowboys did bounce back somewhat, as they pulled out a close victory over the Chargers 20-17. In a game full of a few controversial calls and a monster performance by wide receiver CeeDee Lamb, the Cowboys managed to squeeze out a victory. 

Prescott threw zero interceptions and looked decent, which is all Cowboys fans can hope for right now. Lamb, however, had a monster performance as he had seven catches for 117 yards. Parsons also seemed to wake up from whatever slumber he was in against the 49ers as he added another sack to his resume. The defense looked considerably better than they did against the 49ers. Stephon Gilmore also had the game-sealing interception against the Chargers, as he and DaRon Bland continue to try and fill the void left by star corner Trevon Diggs’ season-ending injury. 

Overall, it was a bad couple of weeks for the Cowboys and not at all what they are striving for as a team. With 10 weeks left in the regular season, the Cowboys will need to do much better if they plan on making a run into the playoffs.
