Not much went right for the Cowboys on Thanksgiving Day as they were blown out by the Washington Football Team, 41-16. Coach Mike McCarthy gave his thoughts on what happened and what the future holds at a press conference. (All answers are paraphrased and not actual quotes).
Zack Martin and Cam Erving
Mike McCarthy noted that both of the team’s starting tackles from their Thanksgiving Day game will be out multiple weeks. He added that Erving has an MCL sprain and that Martin has a calf injury.
Sense of desperation before the fake punt
Coach said anytime you get into a game, you have to assess the flow, the variables of when you go for it, and that characteristics like field position and down and distance come into it.
