Garrett says Cowboys usually crisp in turnover drills in practice but need to "take it to the game"

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett oversees a team that ranks next-to-last in the NFL in turnover margin (minus-11). Quarterback Tony Romo has been responsible for 15 of the team’s 19 turnovers, including 13 interceptions in seven games. Romo threw only 10 interceptions in 16 games last season.

Garrett said Dallas (3-4) works daily on ball-security drills and is not a sloppy team during closed practice sessions.

“I would say we’re practicing well on them. The attention in practices is very good,” Garrett said. “We’ve just got to make sure we take it to the game.”

Other than Romo (13 interceptions, 2 lost fumbles), the list of Cowboys who have lost fumbles includes Felix Jones (2), Miles Austin (1) and Dez Bryant (1).

Hey Jason.
How about yanking someone out of the game when they turn it over? Lets make an example out of someone. So far all we hear about turnovers is "we have to protect the ball", "we need to get better".

Newsflash: it ain't working. How about a new approach? Felix Jones should've been cut by now. This guy is stealing money every time a paycheck is deposited into his account. He set the complete tone of that Seattle game. And is a big reason for the NYG loss.
