Garrett: Whole team accountable for Cowboys' loss to Eagles

There was plenty of blame to go around after the Dallas Cowboys' 34-7 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, but coach Jason Garrett refused to point fingers at anyone, including defensive coordinator Rob Ryan, the next day.

Ryan told The Dallas Morning News after Sunday night's game that the loss was "all on me." But Garrett said Monday that the Cowboys' performance wasn't the fault of only one person.

"We need to do our jobs better to not have games like that," Garrett said.

The screening of the Eagles game tape merely underscored to players and coaches that the Cowboys simply were overwhelmed by a division rival coming off a bye week that badly needed a victory to climb back into the NFC East race.

"I don't think they did anything on offense or defense that surprised us," Garrett said. "We've seen a lot of the stuff they've done and were prepared for it. Unfortunately, we didn't execute as well as we needed to."

The Cowboys also are dealing with injuries to linebacker Sean Lee (left wrist), punter Mat McBriar (left foot) and cornerback Mike Jenkins (right hamstring).

Jenkins told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram he will likely sit out at least three weeks. Lee is unsure whether he'll play Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks but will wear a cast if he does. McBriar is scheduled to see a specialist.
