In their 49-17 Week 10 loss to the New Orleans Saints, the Dallas Cowboys learned the value of a balanced offensive attack: nothing. That's especially true when your defense turns in one of the all-time worst performances in NFL history, giving up 392 yards through the air and 242 yards on the ground.
Shockingly, the Cowboys ran only 43 offensive plays: 27 passes and 16 runs. Things started fine with an early second-quarter touchdown, helping Dallas to a 10-7 lead, but the Saints went on to score four touchdowns before Dallas was able to put more points on the board.
As always, I'll use a combination of traditional stats and advanced stats to grade each position for Dallas.
