Cowboys improve on penalty front but offset progess with too many turnovers

After three weeks of struggles with penalty issues, the Cowboys limited themselves to season lows in that department against Chicago: two penalties for 10 yards. There were no false-start penalties after having six in last week’s 16-10 victory over Tampa Bay.

In the first three games, Cowboys offensive tackles Tyron Smith and Doug Free combined for nine false starts. That disappeared against the Bears.

“I thought this game was the best communication we’ve had by far, since I’ve been here,” said center Ryan Cook, who joined the team shortly before its season opener against the New York Giants.

But the Cowboys trumped their progress in the penalty department with a season-high five turnovers, all on interceptions by quarterback Tony Romo.
