Loss at Kansas City Exposes Glaring Weakness in the Dallas Cowboys' Offense

Heading into Week 2, the Dallas Cowboys wanted to go into Arrowhead Stadium and get a win, against the Kansas City Chiefs.

What many people failed to realize, however, is that the current Chiefs team, isn’t the same team that went 2-14 in 2012. With quarterback Alex Smith under center, the Chiefs’ offense is very methodical, and as most people found out, they don’t make many mistakes. In fact, the Chiefs haven’t turned the ball over through the first two weeks, and that may be the biggest reason they’ve started the 2013 NFL season 2-0.

The Week 2 loss at Kansas City stings, as all losses do, but it should bring the Cowboys down to earth, and it should serve as a learning tool going forward. I know that a call here or actually, a call not made, could have made the end result different, but if you’re going to rely on the refs to make these calls, you deserve to lose.

On Sunday, the Cowboys looked good at times, but they also looked completely lost, and have no one to blame, for the loss, but themselves. I understand that it’s early in the season, but where is the Cowboys’ rushing attack; where are DeMarco Murray, and the commitment to a balanced offense that we heard so much about throughout the preseason?

Until the Cowboys’ rushing attack shows up, and produces, there won’t be any balance on offense. I truly feel like that is what cost them the win on Sunday.
