CHARLOTTE Barry Sanders Jersey , N.C. (AP) — The post-Dez Bryant/Jason Witten era in Dallas got off to a rocky start on Sunday.

The Cowboys were clearly missing a go-to wide receiver on the outside, a presence at tight end and leadership on the offensive line without 2016 All-Pro center Travis Frederick, who is battling Guillain Barre syndrome. The result was a lackluster performance and a 16-8 loss to the Carolina Panthers in the season opener.

Quarterback Dak Prescott took the blame, saying he was “off” his game — although he remained upbeat, insisting that things will improve.

“I have to figure out why I was off,” said Prescott, who was limited to 170 yards passing and no touchdowns. “Was I rushing it? Did I feel pressure? What were the things that were causing it? Was it just me missing the pass?”

But it’s hard to pin the 232-yard offensive output on the third-year quarterback.

It didn’t help that he was under constant pressure from a swarming Panthers defense led by Luke Kuechly and Kawann Short. Prescott was sacked six times, the most costly coming on Dallas’ final drive when Mario Addison stripped him of the football and Captain Munnerlyn recovered to seal Carolina’s win.

But the Cowboys never really looked in sync outside of one fourth-quarter touchdown drive that came when they were down 16.

And they have more questions than answers heading into a Week 2 matchup with the New York Giants on offense.

Starting wide receivers Terrance Williams and Deonte Thompson were limited to a combined four catches for 33 yards. Free agent pickup Allen Hurns, who the Cowboys are hoping has a chance to emerge as their No. 1 receiver, had one catch for 20 yards.

Greg Swaim was limited to three catches for 18 yards, and no other Cowboys tight end caught a pass.

Prescott was clearly most comfortable throwing to one of the team’s few holdovers from last season — slot receiver Cole Beasley Youth Darius Leonard Jersey , who was targeted a team-high eight times and had seven catches for 73 yards.

Overall, the offense seemed to lack creativity with the Cowboys settling routinely for screen passes that were often sniffed out by Kuechly, who finished with 13 tackles.

Prescott said the Cowboys’ problems stemmed mostly from self-inflicted penalties.

An illegal block above the waist by left tackle Tryon Smith put Dallas in a second-and-21 on the first drive. Smith had a holding penalty on the second drive leading to a second-and-17. La’el Collins was flagged twice for holding in second half.

Dallas finished 2 of 11 on third-down conversions.

“Early on, we didn’t have a great rhythm,” coach Jason Garrett said. “We were behind the chains a lot. I thought it got better as the game wore on. We spread them out a little bit. We got some creases in the running game. Guys kept fighting. We made some positive plays on top of positive plays that allowed us to move the ball, certainly on the scoring drive and it’s not good enough. We have to play better.”

Ezekiel Elliott had 69 yards rushing on 16 carries and a touchdown but was largely ineffective before the fourth quarter.

“We have to run it better,” Garrett said. “We have to throw it better. Every part of it has to improve. I thought our guys battled and I thought it got better as the game wore on.”

The Cowboys featured a steady rotation of receivers, which Prescott said he liked.

“It keeps guys fresh,” Prescott said. “It gives us the advantage on defensive backs. I’m great with the rotation as long as those guys are continuing to do their jobs.”

Still, Prescott seemed determined things will get better saying the Cowboys have the right type of guys in the locker room.

For now, the big question is what it was before the season began: Who is going to step up in the passing game to replace Bryant and Witten?

One game in Marvin Jones Jr Jersey , the Cowboys are no closer to finding out.

Cornerback Prince Amukamara appreciated the give and take with new Chicago Bears coach Matt Nagy at Tuesday’s practice.

For the defense, as non-contact organized team activities began there was a lot of taking – and then they really gave it to Nagy and his fledgling offense.

”He’s an offensive coach and last year coach (John) Fox, I couldn’t really talk stuff to because he’s a defensive coach,” Amukamara said. ”And it’s like Nagy’s offense, so if I get a pick or something … I like to talk stuff to him.”

The idea for the defense since offseason started was maintaining continuity with players and with coaches, even while the head coach had changed.

The addition of a few new pieces hasn’t hurt, and now defensive players believe they have what’s needed to improve on last year when they ranked 10th overall.

And Nagy is also a believer, even if he and offensive players are getting kidded at practice from Amukamara or defensive coordinator Vic Fangio.

”Right now there’s a trust from one another because they’ve been together,” Nagy said. ”There’s that experience factor, which is good. And they believe what they’ve got going on with Vic’s system.

”When you have that, that’s always good. So they just kind of want to grow from any mistakes they made last year http://www.texansauthorizedshops.com/authentic-keke-coutee-jersey , different areas of the game they can improve on, and that’s what they’re doing right now.”

Linebacker Danny Trevathan pointed to the retention of Fangio as a key. Fangio re-signed after his bid to become head coach was denied following Fox’s firing.

”I was excited to have Vic back,” Trevathan said. ”I was kind of nervous about him leaving. I feel like I really wanted him back.

”He’s one of our leaders and he’s one of the guys we can go to for calls and advice on things.”

Keeping the entire starting secondary together was also important. The Bears could have lost starting cornerback Kyle Fuller or his good friend Amukamara as free agents, but retained both.

Amukamara pointed to Seattle’s ability to keep Richard Sherman, Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor together as an example of what familiarity can do for a secondary.

”So when you have that continuity and the language stays the same, meaning the plays, it just becomes second nature,” Amukamara said. ”Guys play faster. Guys know what to expect.

”They know how teams are going to attack them and all that is a recipe for success.”

Although intact, the Bears secondary has problems to correct. They’ve made a franchise record low of eight interceptions each of the last three seasons.

”I think personally on the back end it’s our job to take the ball away,” Amukamara said. ”I think we had our opportunities last year and just needed to capitalize on them.

”And I would say that for the most part, just taking the ball away Trent Taylor Jersey , I think we did a great job last year. I think we were (third) at forcing fumbles and recovering them. So I think this year, just catching them, intercepting it.”

One change the defense did make is drafting inside linebacker Roquan Smith in the first round to challenge Trevathan and Nick Kwiatkoski for playing time.

Trevathan realizes Smith threatens his job security, but also thinks the extra speed and depth is something the defense lacked..

”We got the right guy to fit our defense,” Trevathan said. ”He’s working his tail off and he fits in with our linebacker group.”

Nagy appreciated Smith’s quickness defending one pass play on the outside.

A forced turnover a few minutes later had the defense chortling, while Nagy had to address his offense.

”We like that because that’s the kind of defense we are,” Trevathan said. ”We’re going to be in your face making plays, but at the same time we’re having fun and we’re all getting better at the same time.”

NOTES: Outside linebacker Aaron Lynch returned to practice after suffering an ankle injury at the April 17-19 minicamp. . After offseason surgery, right guard Kyle Long was able to participate in the offense’s installation, but did not take part in scrimmage. Nagy said it’s likely Long will stay at right guard. Last year some thought had been given to playing Long at left guard. … Wide receiver Allen Robinson is still sidelined while rehabbing a torn ACL. Nagy called Robinson ”ahead of the game” with his recovery.
