Three Phases: Cowboys-Panthers

Every week, we'll grade the Cowboys on the three phases of the weekend's game.

Offense: F

Sure, Tony Romo got injured again in this game and is now out for the season, but the offense was terrible before Romo went down, and a lot of it was on Tony. It wasn't a great surprise, as it was Romo's second game back from an eight-week absence and he was on a short week of preparation, but Romo was awful. He threw three interceptions, two of which came back for six points, and just looked lost before being lost for the season.

Defense: C

It's hard to lay a ton of blame on the defense when the offense was putting it in such bad position, but they weren't good either. In fact, everyone's favorite lightning rod, Greg Hardy, didn't even record a stat against his former team.

Special teams: B

What do you say here? Dan Bailey was perfect on two field goal tries, and Chris Jones continued his solid season of punting. The return game wasn't a detriment or a plus.
