Cowboys TE Jason Witten Says 'This Team Won't Panic' After Week 2 Loss

The Dallas Cowboys suffered a 42-17 loss to the Denver Broncos on Sunday. It was a jarring defeat for a club whose only double-digit loss last season came when resting key players in Week 17.

Denver stripped away Dallas' formidable ground game by limiting Ezekiel Elliott to eight yards on nine carries. Having endured plenty of peaks and valleys since joining the Cowboys in 2003, tight end Jason Witten knows not to overreact to one loss.

"This team won't panic," he said after the game, per DallasCowboys.com. "We'll get back to work. We know what we're capable of doing, and we got to be accountable for how we played today."

Despite the Week 2 letdown, the 1-1 Cowboys enter Week 3 in a three-team tie for first place in the NFC East. They face the Arizona Cardinals on Monday night.
