Thanks for checking in for this Dallas Cowboys Get Real chat to cover the real-life nightmare that was their 31-29 loss against the Baltimore Ravens.
Post your comment underneath and we can begin a discourse.
THE DALLAS COWBOYS DEFENSE IS RANKED NO. 1 IN THE NFL, BUT ... : I had to to do a triple-take on this - in five games the Dallas Cowboys defense has intercepted one pass, last in the NFL. The unit has forced four fumbles, and recovered three, which is tied for 19th in the NFL.
Sacks? The Cowboys have 10, which is 23rd in the NFL.
The unit is not making the types of plays necessary to change a game.
The Dallas Cowboys defense ranks No. 1 in total yards allowed but in terms of the types of numbers that have a correlation to winning they aren't doing so well.
They are allowing 23.8 points per game, good for 20th in the NFL.
SOMEONE, MAKE A PLAY: Nose tackle Jay Ratliff returned from his ankle injury on Sunday to play his first game of the season, but didn't make a huge impact.
Anthony Spencer is going to be out for a while, meaning Victor Butler has to do something. It looks as if Marcus Spears' career with the Cowboys is coming to a close; he was not activated for Sunday's game.
DeMarcus Ware has to start making a real impact, as do Sean Lee, Bruce Carter, Morris Claiborne.
Not giving up yards is key, but the defense has to generate more turnovers.
