The Dallas Cowboys suffered their first loss of the 2019 regular season on Sunday, falling to the New Orleans Saints on Sunday Night Football.

The Cowboys were beaten by the Saints, 12-10, in a game where neither teams' offense did anything of substance.

Dallas had just 257 yards of total offense, with Dak Prescott throwing for 223 yards and one interception. Ezekiel Elliott added 35 yards and one touchdown on the ground.

Prescott credited the Saints for their performance after the win, but had a brutally honest assessment of his team's offensive output - it wasn't good enough at all.

“I think this was on us. I think this was about our lack of execution,” Prescott told reporters on Sunday night. “Regardless of the way they were doing things, there was a lot of plays left out there on my part, on this whole offense’s part.”

Prescott had been one of the NFL's most-productive quarterbacks through the first three weeks of the season, with talk of the Mississippi State product getting the biggest contract in league history heating up.

Sunday night, though, he looked average at best. It was just one game, of course, and the Cowboys are still a promising 3-1.

However, Prescott and Co. will need to be much better in big games moving forward.
