Postseason offers Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy chance to respond to critics
The playoffs are now here -- and the Cowboys are coming off their worst performance of the season in Sunday's 26-6 loss to the Washington Commanders. The 12-5 record doesn’t seem to matter. It was hardly inspiring and left more questions, with Dak Prescott getting intercepted for the seventh straight game (including his third pick-six in the last four games), several special teams miscues and a defense that could not do enough to affect fifth-round rookie quarterback Sam Howell, who was making his first start.
