Patriots' resolve unshaken after falling to 0-4 at home

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — For 60 minutes, the New England Patriots had an answer for nearly everything the Dallas Cowboys threw at them.

But as they trudged off the field following a 35-29 overtime loss on Sunday, they had to confront the reality that they're not quite good enough to beat one of the league's elite teams.

New England fell to 2-4 for the second straight season since Tom Brady's departure.

“When you look at the big picture, you never want to say you’re close, and it’s hard to do that, but the games that we’ve lost we’ve been two or three plays away,” said rookie quarterback Mac Jones, who finished 15 of 21 for 229 yards, two touchdowns and an interception.
