The Dallas Cowboys are coming off a 43-3 demolition of the Atlanta Falcons and occupy the top spot in the NFC East Division at 7-2. Despite the Cowboys’ success in the first half of the season, there are still some kinks to iron out.
Penalties have been an issue for the Cowboys, particularly in the trenches. Offensive lineman Connor Williams has been one of the main culprits in terms of committing violations. He has already been flagged 13 times this season, 10 of which have been accepted. To put that in perspective, Jedrick Wills led the NFL with 11 penalties last season. Across nine games, Williams is just one shy of that tally.
Per Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News, Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy addressed the struggles of the 24-year-old left guard.
