There was certainly a lot of ugly negatives to take away from the Cowboys’ season opening loss to the Jets last Sunday. There were crucial miscues on offense and special teams, cringe-inducing turnovers, and, for the first time in franchise history, Dallas watched as a 14 point fourth quarter lead disappeared.
But according to defensive tackle Marcus Spears, there were some positives to take away from Sunday night, as well.
"Everybody who watched that game knows it was ours to lose," Spears said, per the Dallas Morning News. "Going into that environment everybody thought we were going to get killed and that wasn't the case, so there are a lot of positives to take away from last night, but it's football, so there are always things to work on, too.
"They made big plays. They got a blocked punt, turnover and it's a bunch of plays throughout the game you can credit to losing the game but those two plays stick out because they happened to happen at a time when you're probably thinking you're going to win the game. I think we'll be fine."
