The Dallas Cowboys’ current record isn’t sitting well with tight end Jason Witten.
Witten put the team on notice that everyone should be disappointed with a 2-2 record in the aftermath of a 35-30 Week 4 loss to the Los Angeles Rams.
“I like our team. I think we’re a good football team. But we’re 2-2 after the first quarter [of the season], and we have to be better,” Witten said, per Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News. “There is no excuses for that. I think our team is going to be accountable.”
The Cowboys got off to a quick start but were unable to hold off a surging Rams. A majority of the blame could be a credited to the team’s defense. Los Angeles had 412 total yards, including 121 rushing yards from Todd Gurley who outperformed Ezekiel Elliott in the contest.
Linebacker Sean Lee’s absence was felt in Dallas. Yet, the home team should come up with a win putting up 30 points in their own backyard.
The Cowboys can take solace in that no team has asserted themselves in the NFC East. Although, as Witten said the Cowboys “have to be better” to repeat as division champs.
