DeMarcus Ware did as much as he could do, but it wasn't as much as he wanted to do. Ware played with a shoulder strain and a hyperextended elbow.
He needed a harness for his shoulder and a brace for his elbow.
The Cowboys picked their spots for Ware. He played only 10 plays in the first half, and more in the second after Anthony Spencer briefly left the game with a left ankle injury.
Ware made one tackle and had one hit on the quarterback.
"Ware was very limited," Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said. "He gave us as much as you could ask of anybody to play tonight. But he certainly had his limitations. But they had players who had their limitations, too. So, I want to even it up here. But they were able to play better than we were and win tonight."
Ware, who had only 1.5 sacks in the last six games to finish with 11.5, will need surgeries on his right shoulder and right elbow, he said. He made the Pro Bowl but won't play in the all-star game.
