Hopes dashed early, Cowboys look listless
Published January 2, 2006
IRVING, Texas - Their playoff incentive gone, the Cowboys couldn't muster much enthusiasm - or many points - against the Rams.
Aveion Cason and Arlen Harris ran for their first touchdowns since 2003 and Jeff Wilkins added two field goals for St. Louis.
The Rams had given up a league-high 27.9 points a game, but turned in their stingiest effort of the season. The game was made meaningless when Washington beat Philadelphia, eliminating Dallas from the wild-card chase.
"I think we were a little deflated mentally, especially our offensive group," Cowboys coach Bill Parcells said. "We just seemed to not be on edge in light of what happened today, probably."
Now the wait begins to find out whether Parcells will return for the final season of his four-year, $17-million contract. Owner Jerry Jones told ESPN: "I hope that we can continue what we've got started here. I think that we both recognize we've got something good. ... We got more work to do."
