After dropping their first two games of the season, their worst start since the 2001 season, the Dallas Cowboys need to turn things around now if they have any hope to be the first team to play in the Super Bowl at their home stadium.
A lot of blame has been directed towards all the Super Bowl hype in the preseason going to the players heads. Something Wade Phillips denies.
"It's just the way we've played so far" said Phillips, "we haven't played well enough to win."
Dallas did get a little bit of good news after tight end Jason Witten announced that he expected to play this Sunday. Witten slammed the back of his head against the turf after a tackle midway through the fourth quarter against Chicago Sunday. After stumbling for a few steps, he was helped to the sideline and did not return.
This week Dallas travels to Reliant Stadium to take on undefeated Houston.
