Dallas Cowboys .500 team again after 2 different games

IRVING, Texas (AP) - Just like that, the Dallas Cowboys are a .500 team again.

While it's only two games into the season, there was a long list of mistakes in their loss at Seattle. In a year that they have insisted has to be different after being distinctly average for so long, the Cowboys are 1-1.

After opening the season by winning on the road against the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants, they seemed so listless in a 27-7 loss at Seattle.

Coach Jason Garrett says it's obvious the Cowboys played better against the Giants. He says they now have to figure out what happened, and why the performances were so drastically different.

Their home opener is Sunday against Tampa Bay.
