Dallas Cowboys’ Ezekiel Elliott takes blame for blowout loss to Arizona Cardinals

ARLINGTON, Texas — Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott was not blaming any part of Monday night’s 38-10 loss to the Arizona Cardinals on quarterback Dak Prescott’s absence. He was putting it all on himself. “I don’t think we can use that as an excuse,” Elliott said of not having Prescott, who suffered a season-ending compound fracture and dislocated right ankle in Week 5. “I’m just going to keep saying it over and over — I started the game out with two fumbles, gave the ball away and gave them all the momentum they need to go take off. I want to say I’m sorry and this one is on me. I need to be better.” Elliott finished with 49 yards on 12 carries and caught a team-high eight passes but for just 31 yards. However, it was fumbles on back-to-back drives in the first and second quarters that changed the game.
