The Cowboys have made a habit of blowing leads this year.
And not little leads.
Two- and three-touchdown leads.
"I think at different times we've done a really good job handling the fourth-quarter situations, and other times we haven't," Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said.
The Cowboys gave up a 24-10 lead against the New York Jets to start the fourth quarter and went on to lose in overtime, 27-24.
They were up 27-3 against the Detroit Lions in the second half and wound up with a 34-30 loss.
Sunday night, they had a 34-22 lead against the New York Giants with 5:41 to go. But that became a 37-34 loss.
"We shot ourselves in the foot with penalties and stuff like that," Cowboys linebacker Victor Butler said. "You don’t want to help them, and we helped them."
