Arthur Smith on loss to Cowboys: ‘We’re lucky it only counts as one’

·2 min read

The Atlanta Falcons suffered one of their most lopsided losses in recent memory to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 10. After trailing 7-3, the Cowboys’ lead ballooned to 36-3 before the game had even reached halftime. In his postgame press conference, Falcons head coach Arthur Smith took full responsibility and didn’t pull any punches on himself.

“Clearly, we weren’t prepared coming in here, and we got avalanched in that second quarter and never recovered,” Smith told reporters following the 43-3 loss to Dallas.

“I’ve got to get this team ready to go, we’re lucky it only counts as one,” continued Smith. “We’ve got to turn around and play a really good New England team that’s on a roll in our home stadium on Thursday.”
