The Cowboys (2-2) are back to the .500 team they have always been. It was the second time this season they failed to get back to back wins.
It puts the Cowboys to back to 18-18 since the start of the 2011 season and 106-106 since 2000.
The Cowboys are now 2-9 in their past 10 seasons in their fourth game, including six consecutive losses when they’ve gone into their fourth game of the season with a 2-1 record.
Owner Jerry Jones refused to the compare the Cowboys situation to the .500 malaise of the past, just saying that he was “extremely frustrated” with Sunday's loss.
“Well I just look at it completely in the context of this year,” Jones said. “This is again different circumstances. Rivers played to his reputation out there today. We couldn’t’ defense him and they balanced it up real good and we paid the consequences. It was unexpected. They did outplay us without a doubt.”
