Jones: Talent, coaching not to blame for Cowboys’ sputtering offense

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones delivered a vote of confidence Monday to everyone involved in his offense's sluggish start to the campaign.

"I think we've got the players and I do think we have the talent and I think we have the coaching that can get us on the right track offensively," Jones said, according to the Dallas Morning News' Jon Machota, a day after the Cowboys fell 24-13 to the Seattle Seahawks.

"We will get on the right track offensively," he added. "I'll assure you."

The Cowboys' offense has been abysmal through three games, ranking 31st in the NFL with 13.7 points per game. Their passing attack also ranks second-last in the league, averaging 145 yards per contest.

Still, Jones is certain that preseason concerns about his team's lack of established skill players and potentially stale coaching or play-calling will prove to be rubbish.

"I've seen the makeup of this general group move the ball well on offense," he said. "No reason to think we won't see it again."

If there was one bright spot on offense against the Seahawks, it was Ezekiel Elliott, who rushed for a season-high 127 yards and averaged 7.9 yards per carry. Still, the game ended with observers pointing to a lack of weapons around quarterback Dak Prescott and a lack of game-plan creativity from head coach Jason Garrett and offensive coordinator Scott Linehan.

Dallas will take a 1-2 record into a Week 4 meeting with the Detroit Lions.
