Dallas Cowboys Week 6 Report Card: Grading Every Unit

The Dallas Cowboys played a good football game on the road against a New England Patriots team that is better than them, but they ultimately couldn't find a way to come out of the game with a victory. 

Tony Romo threw for 317 yards and averaged 7.7 yards per attempt. 

Miles Austin had seven catches; Dez Bryant and Jason Witten each had four. 

The Cowboys defense forced the Patriots offense into four turnovers and held the Patriots to 2-of-4 in the red zone. They had been 17-of-26 on red-zone opportunities coming into the game. 

They held Tom Brady to just 289 yards passing and just 7.05 yards per attempt. Brady came into the game averaging 374.8 passing yards per game on 9.56 yards per attempt. 

They held Wes Welker to just 45 receiving yards on six catches—well below his nine-catch, 145-yard per-game averages. 

BenJarvus Green-Ellis, who last week rushed for a career-high 136 yards and two touchdowns, was held to just 58 rushing yards on 14 carries and no touchdowns. 

But none of it was enough. 

Good game, bad result.
