Kevin Ogletree takes the blame for pass that bounced off his hands and resulted in an INT

Blame Kevin Ogletree. He accepts it.

Tony Romo’s second interception came in the third quarter when the Cowboys were driving to cut the Bears’ lead to one score. With Dallas on the Chicago 18 yard-line, Romo found Ogletree in the middle of the field, but the ball bounced off Ogletree’s hands and into strong safety Major Wright’s hands.

"I just didn't reach out for it," Ogletree said. "I let it get on my chest. It was a bang-bang play. I can't do that down in the red zone."

The Cowboys have eight turnovers in the last two games. Their minus-7 turnover ratio is second-worst in the NFL next to the Chiefs, who are minus-13.

"That's what wins and loses ball games in the NFL," Ogletree said. "We've got to do our best to get to the plus-side in the turnover ratio."

its nice that Ogletree takes responsibility, but that ain't good enough. In a game filled with bad plays, that Ogletree mistake was just brutal. Who would've ever thought that Dallas would be so weak at WR? We have an injury-prone Miles Austin and not much else. You certainly can't count on Dez Bryant and Ogletree is more of a #4 WR.
