Jason Witten says the offense as much to blame as the defense for Cowboys woes

There is no fracture in the Cowboys locker room between the offense and the team's maligned defense.

Never mind that the defense ranks last in the league and is on pace to become one of the worst units in NFL history, he Cowboys are in this together, per tight end Jason Witten.

Besides, he said, the team's struggling offense, which has dropped to 18th in the league after being as high as seventh earlier in the season, bears as much blame for the team's woes.

Witten said the offense must focus on improving itself rather than trying to overcompensate for supposed expected problems on defense.

"I don’t think you can look at it that way," Witten said. "You play within yourself and trust the guys around you. Obviously the defense and special teams. We’ve got to do a better job offensively, that’s for sure. We’ve got to get down there more and we’ve got to score more. We just haven’t done a good job. We’ve left our defense out there way too long the last couple of weeks. Those areas, we can improve, too. You’ve got to believe in everybody around you. You can’t go in there and say we’ve got to go put up X amount of points. I don’t think you live in that world."
