Another hard loss for the Cowboys and this time against MVP front-runner

Aldon Smith was putting on a show Sunday night as he now leads the most NFL sacks with now 4. This is just ahead T.J. Watt and Akiem Hicks. What is even more shocking is Smith hasn't played a down of football since 2015. Smith got three of those four sacks during Sunday's loss, 38-31 in Seattle.

The Cowboys were able to sack Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson a total of four times. Yet, that wasn't enough to slow down the MVP front-runner to throw for five touchdowns and 315 passing yards. Dallas now sit 1-2 at the start of the 2020 season.

Smith hasn't complete three or more sacks in a game since 2012. According to NFL research, this was the sixth-longest stretch between history making performances.

Fans and the Cowboys organization can easily recognize this is not the defense we need this season. Smith is the shining star currently coming out from the new defensive coordinator Mike Nolan.

An unsung hero during this game for the Cowboys was none other than Cedrick Wilson. Wilson caught for five passes for 107 yards. He also went for two touchdowns of his career.

A not so much hero during this game was running back Ezekiel Elliott. In Seattle, Zeke only had 34 rushing yards making it the third-lowest single game total during his career. Zeke also only put up 24 receiving yards on six catches. During the game, he only had 20 ball touches along with 68 yards produced from that.

Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott hit yet another milestone this game coming off last week against the Falcons. Prescott is the first Cowboys player in history to record consecutive 400-yard passing game. He is also the second player in NFL history to have back-to-back games of putting up 450-yards or more.

The Cowboys will be back in action Sunday October 4th as they host the Cleveland Browns. Kick off is slated for 12 p.m.
