The team amassed 13 penalties for 105 yards against the Buccaneers on Sunday, including six unforgiveable false start penalties.
The Cowboys have 36 penalties in three games so far this season, putting them on pace for 165. It would shatter the team record of 141 set in 1998.
Coach Jason Garrett said the Cowboys will do whatever it takes to get it cleaned up, analyzing things from play to play and player to player.
“The communication at the line of scrimmage, we just have to clean up,” Garrett said. “I think some of the other penalties that have happened were almost effort penalties, guys trying to do too much and getting hands up in a face mask or some things that occur in a ballgame. You have to address those as well. We constantly address 'do your job,' and sometimes a guy wants to do their job well and get themselves in trouble. The pre-snap penalties we’ve just got to eliminate. We’ll keep working on that as a coaching staff. We will address it penalty by penalty and see why they happened.”
