    Remember on Sunday night, how the Cowboys offense seemed to be confused at times? They drew two delay of game penalties during the course of the loss--one right before that crucial blocked punt--regularly ran the play clock down to the wire, and generally had a “hey, what’s going on here?” look to them on a number of plays.

    Well, as it turns out, the confusion was real--and, according to ESPN Dallas, faulty technology was at least in part to blame. Jason Garrett said Tuesday that there were a few instances that the connection between his headset and Tony Romo’s helmet was broken or unclear.

    According to Garrett, this isn’t an unthinkable occurrence.

    That’s the nature of the National Football League,” Garrett said. “Sometimes that happens. It seems to happen a lot on the road. You’ve just got to fight your way through that. Tony has a good understanding, being able to get some plays called if it’s not coming in clean. But that happened a few times in the game.

    “We had to adjust, and a couple of times it did make us look a little sloppy getting out of the huddle because he wasn’t getting the call like he typically does.”
