The Dallas Cowboys allowed the Detroit Lions offense to rack up 623 yards altogether. Dallas quarterback Tony Romo threw for just 206 yards on the day with little time to scan the field on most passing plays. The Cowboys running game was far from a threat without DeMarco Murray.

Dallas has plenty to take away from this tough 31-30 road loss. Let's take a look at what Jason Garrett's coaching staff should be looking for in the film room this coming week.
