The Cowboys lost their third straight game on Thursday afternoon and they have scored a total of 22 points in those three games, so it’s no surprise that the offense was a major topic of conversation in the locker room.

A common theme emerged when Cowboys players addressed their struggles. Running back Alfred Morris and center Travis Frederick each said they didn’t know what’s wrong while tight end Jason Witten said he wishes “it was as simple as one answer.”

Some would suggest that it is pretty simple. The three games have been played without running back Ezekiel Elliott, who has been at the center of the team’s offensive success in the last two years and is going to miss three more games with a suspension.
