“We didn’t run, catch, throw. We didn’t block,” Romo said of the 27-7 loss. “We didn’t do the things you need to do – the small things you need to do – to give yourselves a chance in an environment like this.”
The Cowboys gained only 296 yards. DeMarco Murray rushed for only 44 yards on 12 carries. Romo completed only 23 of 40 passes for 251 yards and threw an interception as well as a touchdown. Jason Witten and Dez Bryant dropped passes. The offensive line again made Romo run for his life, though he escaped well enough that the Seahawks sacked him only once.
The Cowboys found the end zone only once. The only time they scored seven or fewer points last season was in the two losses to the Eagles.
“You’re always disappointed then you lose, so it’s frustrating,” Romo said. “I mean, it sucks standing up here just talking about it. It’s part of playing in the National Football League. That was a good bunch that we played against today. That defensive unit they had definitely gave us trouble at different times, and we didn’t do the things that we normally would do well to offset that a little bit.”
