After another below-par display on Monday night, Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott was subjected to widespread criticism, The seasoned NFL running back admitted that he was to blame for the Cardinals loss.

“I don’t think we can use [Prescott being gone] as an excuse. I’m just going to keep saying it over and over – I started the game out with two fumbles, gave the ball away and gave them all the momentum they need to go take off. I want to say I’m sorry and this one is on me. I need to be better,”

Meanwhile, here’s what Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy said after the loss.

“We didn’t play very well on offense, defense or special teams. Most importantly, I didn’t coach very well. I have a continuing issue with ball security on my football team,” McCarthy told The Athletic.

The Jerry Jones-owned franchise face an uphill task ahead of them. In Dak Prescott’s absence, the Cowboys will only find it harder to make the playoffs this season.
