"We love you Romo!" one spectator shouted before a "Romo, Romo, Romo" chant broke out.
According to David Helman of DallasCowboys.com, Prescott said after the game that everybody at the Cowboys should be frustrated with the team's performance against the Chargers and that he would be annoyed if he found a player on his team that wasn't.
Jones said similar things about Wade Phillips in 2010 before firing him after a 45-7 loss to Green Bay Packers and a 1-7 start, one year after winning a playoff game for the first time since 2006.
And while Smith is right to think that the Cowboys would be in a much better position to compete with Elliott in the mix and linebacker Sean Lee back from injury, at some point the results become the reality.
Elliott, after he and the NFLPA were beaten in court and abandoned their legal challenge, now has served three games of his suspension. It's no wonder Jerry Jones is angry with the NFL about this outcome. If the Los Angeles offense can continue this kind of play in the coming weeks, this team will definitely be hard to eliminate from playoff contention. "Candidly and I don't even want to say it so that somebody might repeat it. Absolutely not". And believe it or not, things got even worse in the second half for the Cowboys as the Charged rolled to a 28-6 victory.
The Cowboys appeared to finally get on the board on their next series when Prescott kept a keeper around the left end and ran 34 yards untouched all the way to the end zone.
"I think more than anything it was just the entire offense", coach Jason Garrett said.
Strangely, Alfred Morris and Rod Smith have done an admirable job running the ball in Elliott's stead.
Nick Novak's injured back is a real concern - just like every field goal attempt by a Chargers kicker this season has been a real concern. The Chargers lead the all-time series with Cleveland 15-9-1.
The Cowboys' record dropped to 5-6.
The defense has a pair of pass rushers in Joey Bosa (10 1/2 sacks) and Melvin Ingram (8 1/2) who have simply taken over. The others are JaMarcus Russell, Brady Quinn and Mettenberger.
Keenan Allen caught a pass and ran past Dallas defenders for a 42-yard touchdown reception in the fourth quarter.
There's no doubt Prescott has pressed to make up for the defensive ineptitude, and it has backfired. The fact that both the Cowboys and the Chargers both seemed to be wearing blue jerseys - when does that happen, and won't that be confusing?
That was then followed by the Cowboys moving down to the Los Angeles 13-yard line.
