The pain of losing was felt throughout the Cowboys locker room Sunday night.
It was their second straight loss as they fell to 2-3 and under .500 for the first time since last season.
But although they lost, the Cowboys left Baltimore (5-1) with something they didn't have coming into the game: a sense of pride, a sense of self respect and a feeling of optimism for the rest of the season. They didn't have any of that following the 34-18 loss to the Bears before last week’s bye.
"I’m sick about losing this game," owner Jerry Jones said. "I feel good about this team. Even though we’re at 2-3, I feel good about the way we held up, stayed in there, fought. The way we did some things, executed, the way our offensive line played. There are some things I feel good about our future with, future being this year. I feel a lot more an encouraged than I did after Chicago."
