Where did the Cowboys end up? The Dallas Cowboys are struggling on offense this season. If you look at the numbers

, itís a little discouraging.There are lot of different theories going around as to why this offense is playing so poorly. Most of it centers around the play of quarterback Dak Prescott. Our own Connor Livesay does a great job of breaking down his mechanics and how they are contributing to his sub-par play this season. Some of the criticism is directed at the play-calling, including comments made by Cowboys receiver Allen Hurns. Even the receivers themselves have been under fire to where Hurns and even Cole Beasley have felt compelled to defend the position group.While all these factors play a part in the poor play of the offense, another group also shoulders part of the blame - the offensive line. The Cowboys have invested quite a bit into their offensive line over the years with four players - Zack Martin ($14 M), Tyron Smith ($12.2 M), Travis Frederick ($9.4 M), and Laíel Collins ($7.7 M) accounting for nearly one-quarter of the teamís salary cap resources. And letís not forget they just used a second-round pick on rookie Connor Williams in Aprilís draft. Expectations are that this group performs at a high level or else they are mismanaging their financial resources.Unfortunately, life gave them some lemons when Travis Frederick was diagnosed with Guillain-Barre syndrome, an auto-immune disease that affects the nervous system. Frederick was placed on injured reserve last weekend, keeping him out for at least the next seven weeks.With Frederick out, backup center Joe Looney has been filling in and heís been solid this season. Pro Football Focus recently ranked the offensive line of all 32 NFL teams so far this year. The top 10 are as follows:1. Los Angeles Rams2. Philadelphia Eagles3. New Orleans Saints4. Green Bay Packers5. San Francisco 49ers6. Detroit Lions7. Tennessee Titans8. Washington Redskins9. New England PatriotsAnd rounding out the top 10 are our beloved...This is a fair assessment of the Cowboys offensive line. Zack Martin has now emerged as the teamís best offensive linemen. Despite J.J. Watt notching a rare sack against him on Sunday night, those two exchanged blows all night with Zack winning his fare share of battles. Here, he gives J.J. a little nudge just to let him know heís thinking about him.While Martin has been a model of consistency, the same cannot be said for the other remaining All-Pro lineman still suiting up for them. Tyron Smith has been good at times, but also shaky at times. He already has three penalties on the season with a hold, false start, and illegal block in the back. Speaking of penalties, Laíel Collins is getting flagged almost every game. He already has been called for four holding penalties (two have been declined) as well as a false start. What is odd is that the interior line, with two new pieces

, have shown more discipline that the veterans out on the edge. The only penalty the inside guys have comes from the rookie Williams.The Cowboys offensive line is not as dominant as they once were. That was never more evident when Jason Garrett opted to punt on fourth down in overtime against the Houston Texans. In past seasons, he wouldnít have thought twice about running down the defenses throat with an offensive line that could impose itís will on their opponents. Of course the offensive line is only a part of the Cowboys offensive woes, but they are definitely a part of it. A top 10 unit is still pretty good, but pretty good wonít cut it. They need to be outstanding. We know itís in them because weíve seen it. They played extremely really well against Detroit and the result was the teamís only 400+ offensive performance of the season. Itís going to be a challenge for this group with each new game, especially with some of the tough defensive fronts theyíll face this season. Defenses are really coming after Ezekiel Elliott. And they know that anytime they get pressure on Prescott, the Cowboys offense usually sputters. But if the Cowboys can survive and stay in the NFC East hunt, help should eventually be on the way. Frederick was asked by 105.3 The Fan about the decision to put him on IR and his outlook for when he might be able to return.If Frederick is ready when his eight weeks are up, then that puts him back on the field when the Cowboys host the Philadelphia Eagles. Thatís a big game. It would sure be nice if the Cowboys had the better offensive line on that day. The season might depend on it.Cowboys vs. Seahawks: Five winners, five losers, and a whole lot in between Watching the Dallas Cowboys lose to the Seattle Seahawks felt a lot like the loss to the Denver Broncos last season.Dallas didnít get lit up in the same way on the scoreboard, but they did get beat up in almost ever facet of the game. The Cowboys were outplayed in almost every way by the Seahawks, and it was ugly.They lost the game, but there was more losing than that (and winning!). Here are our five winners, five losers, and everything else in between. Winner: The shot that Earl Thomas calledIt was on December 24th, 2017 when Earl Thomas chased down Jason Garrett and pleaded with him to ďgo get himĒ from Seattle. Jason Garrett and the Cowboys tried, but they were unsuccessful. It hurt them that they couldnít pull it off. Thomas had not one, but two interceptions off of Dak Prescott

, granted they both came off of tipped balls. To make matters worse he poured salt in the wound when he took a bow towards the Cowboys sideline after the second one.Oh well. Winner: Those that donít believe in Dak PrescottFor a long time I thought that the internet had never seen anything like the Dak Prescott and Tony Romo debate of 2016, but then the 2018 season happened.He hasnít exactly had help around him (or from his coaches), but Dak Prescott has been quite bad so far on this young season. Take a look at his day on Sunday.Not a single attempt beyond 15 yards. Thatís quite telling. This subject isnít going away.Winner: The rest of the NFC EastWeek 2 was quite nice to be a fan of the Dallas Cowboys within the NFC East because they were the only team from it to walk away with a victory. Those were the days.Week 3 was not so kind to the rooters of Americaís Team. The world saw the Philadelphia Eagles (Indianapolis Colts), Washington Redskins (Green Bay Packers), and New York Giants (Houston Texans) all walk away with wins on Sunday. The Cowboys lost. Thatís not good.Itís still very early in the season and a lot is going to change, but itís never a good thing to be the only team in your division to lose. Thatís how you fall further and further behind.Winner: Brett Maher, which is something positiveWeíre finally at a point where the dust from releasing Dan Bailey has settled (he lost this week, too), and part of the reason for that is Brett Maher. The 28-year-old rookie has been perfect since missing his first ever kick, and thatís kind of an awesome thing.Dallas is resorting to a lot of field goals and look like theyíre going to be for some time in the near future. At the very least they have a good kicker at their back, and things could definitely be worse in that regard.Winner: The idea of using Tavon Austin, sort ofGuess what? The Dallas Cowboys ran a jet sweep with Tavon Austin! The jet sweep is one of the more predictable plays for the Cowboys whether itís Lucky Whitehead, Ryan Switzer, or Tavon Austin running it. Not only did they jet sweep Tavon though, the Cowboys used the Ďol shovel pass with him coming in motion thatís become popular across the NFL.Itís definitely great to see the Cowboys finally taking pages out of other coaches playbooks, but that shuffle pass has been going on for a few seasons now. The Cowboys are a little late to the party, but the play did result in a touchdown so thereís that.Loser: Ezekiel Elliottís utilizationThe Dallas Cowboys run the ball on every first down, and thatís a problem. The Dallas Cowboys also arenít running enough

, and thatís a problem thatís also possible.Not running enough can be problematic because the Dallas Cowboys employ Ezekiel Elliott. They are using him at an alarmingly low rate.In defense of the idea of not using Zeke (thatís not a good idea, mind you) the Cowboys tried to go to him a few times and he let them down. Elliott stepped out of bounds before catching what would have been a great touchdown, and he fumbled after a nice gain downfield, ending whatever hope that drive had.This is not fun.Loser: The idea of getting sacks all the time, even against bad offensive linesRussell Wilson had been sacked six times in each game before he played the Cowboys. Dallas was coming off of a six sack performance themselves, so things looked like they were coming up Hot Boyz in Seattle.Dallas only managed to corral Wilson twice. TWO TIMES. The Cowboys were unable to get to a quarterback that people were getting to at a historic rate, and they were unable to do so even with Kris Richard calling defensive plays. Loser: The second and third quarters when it comes to things that matterThe season is now three games old, and do you know how many touchdowns the Cowboys have scored in the second and third quarters? The answer would be zero.Dallas has actually scored a majority of their seasonís touchdowns in the fourth quarter, but one came in Carolina that was near the end and the same is true in regards to the Austin one in Seattle. Dallas is having a very difficult time scoring, and theyíre really only doing so when no one is trying their hardest to stop them.Loser: Any chance of being road warriors this seasonIn past years where the Cowboys have had serious success weíve seen them pull off impressive records on the road. The Cowboys have played two games away from AT&T Stadium this season, and theyíve left with a loss in both instances.Dallas isnít exactly known for being able to win at home so theyíve needed road wins in seasons past. Theyíre going to need to find some before this season is over.Loser: The NFL rulebook... yet againTyrone Crawford was penalized early on in the game because of the NFLís new idea that defensive players canít sack quarterbacks. It was terrible.Jerry Jones wasnít too thrilled about this (as the Green Bay Packers were not in their game), but this is the way the NFL wants their game to be called. Itís unfortunate, and Tyrone Crawford even had a health scare after what should have been a punt for the Seahawks. This wonít sit well with folks for long.There were only five listed losers, but it felt like there were many more in Seattle. Dallas is 1-2 for the first time under Jason Garrett, but they do have winnable games coming up versus Detroit and in Houston.Itís going to be a long week with the Cowboys with many more questions about their offense and coaching staff to deal with. The only way for them to rid themselves of those is for their offense to perform at a higher level. Will it happen? Or wonít it?
