FRISCO, Texas -- Rookie quarterback Dak Prescott moved the Dallas offense in his debut, early when the Cowboys kept settling for field goals, and late when a mental error in the final seconds prevented a try for a long kick in a 20-19 loss to the New York Giants .The problem is, Dallas still cant find a way to win without Tony Romo.The Giants bottled up both Prescotts rookie partner in the backfield, running back Ezekiel Elliott, and 2014 All-Pro receiver Dez Bryant. Oh, and a defense that never seemed to get a big stop during a 4-12 season last year failed again in the fourth quarter.With another NFC East opponent looming Sunday in Washington, the Cowboys are searching for the same answers they were a year ago when they went 1-11 without the injured Romo. The 36-year-old is likely to miss at least another month after breaking a bone in his back in the preseason.I think we have a chance to be a good team this season, owner and general manager Jerry Jones said. A lot of it has to do with what I saw from Dak and really what I saw overall. We did some good things defensively, too.Elliott was limited to 51 yards on 20 carries, and consecutive 8-yard runs were his longest, including one for his first NFL touchdown. Even with the Giants focusing on the fourth overall pick, Bryant was held to one catch on Prescotts first pass.Bryant did have a catch-that-wasnt moment similar to the 2014 playoffs against Green Bay when a 24-yard touchdown was overturned by replay. Another deep throw to Bryant in the end zone was broken up.Thats a guy theyre going to game-plan against, Prescott said. They might be happy about taking some catches away, but we had some chances. Well continue to attack Dez and go after them in those coverages when they give them to us.Repeatedly in the fourth quarter last season, the Dallas defense couldnt get key stops either to protect leads or give the offense a chance for a rally.While Brandon Carr set up the only Dallas touchdown with his first interception since Thanksgiving 2013, he also turned Victor Cruz loose in the end zone for the winning score on third down with 6:13 remaining. The Cowboys had stopped the Giants four straight times before the decisive drive that started near midfield.Something else had a familiar feeling to last year: one of those what-just-happened plays. Instead of getting out of bounds with no timeouts and less than 10 seconds to go, receiver Terrance Williams turned upfield trying to make a potential winning kick even shorter. The game ended at the New York 40 with Prescott unable to get a snap before time expired.So now, the Cowboys have to work to avoid another familiar feeling: early-season losses piling up while Romo watches from the sideline.I think theres a lot of confidence in this locker room, said tight end Jason Witten, who combined with Cole Beasley for 17 of Prescotts 25 completions with the Cowboys working mostly underneath the New York defense. Well learn from it. That doesnt minimize the loss.Especially when it was so similar to the 12 from last season.---Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL---Follow Schuyler Dixon on Twitter at https://twitter.com/apschuylerNike Air Max 720 Ireland .Y. -- Paul Byron and Matt Stajan scored as the Calgary Flames started a five-game road trip with a 2-1 overtime win over the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday afternoon.

Manuel was offered a position the day he was fired.

He was asked how he would rate his year (he gave it a B). He was asked about the inconsistency in his game (he said he needed to play more). And he was questioned about whether it was possible to play as he did when he won Congressional by a record margin (he said hed love to play like he did then but it would be pretty unlikely). Fast forward to this year and McIlroy is being asked almost all the same questions. Where is his game? What is the cause of the problems? Can he find things this week? He didnt offer up a grade of his 2013 campaign but judging by his record and his comments, its unlikely hed award himself anything close to a B. In fact, he might be headed for an F if he cant figure things out. But at the very least, hes working hard (he has once again been putting in marathon practice sessions this week) and has some good perspective on his troubles. "I was sort of in this position coming into this tournament last year in a way," said McIlroy, who last finished in the top 10 back in May. "I was coming off a fifth place in Akron, but the run of events before that wasnt so good. So obviously, yeah, you never hope to struggle or not to play well, but its going to happen. Its inevitable." In golf, more than any other sports, there are more lows than highs. A solid career can be one where you win only three or four times in 200 or 300 starts. You dont always win. In fact, you rarely win. Its just that, unfairly or not, we figured after such a wonderful start, McIlroy was bound to keep running up titles, competing for majors and taking on Tiger and Phil. At the very least, we believed hed play a whole lot better. With the slide, the fingers have been pointed at the causes. Could it be the equipment? His girlfriend? His change of agents? His moving to Florida? Maybe. Maybe. Maybe. And maybe. Certainly the rest of the world has felt comfortable chiming in on the issue. Nick Faldo said iit was the equipment change.dddddddddddd Gary Player suggested it might be the girlfriend. McIlroy believes it can all be attributed to something rather basic -- a poor swing, one that hes had trouble correcting. "First and foremost," he stated, "I just havent been swinging it the best this year. I got into a couple bad habits with my golf swing, and its just taken me a little bit longer to get out of them. Obviously when youre fighting that so much, its hard to play the golf that I want to play, which is fluid, which is free flowing, I guess. Thats the way I play my best." Listening to him talk, even though there are smiles and laughs, theres a sense that hes tired of struggling, tired of playing bad golf, tired of answering the questions. It bubbled over at the U.S. Open when he creased the shaft in his nine-iron after another bad swing. "Thats the thing," he said. "Theres been times this year where Ive really gotten down on myself and thats something that hasnt helped at all, and something that Im trying to get better at." When asked about his Ryder Cup teammate, Ian Poulter tried to put a little perspective on matters. "You know, I think sometimes we forget how young he is and what hes been able to achieve at a very early age. So the second he feels comfortable again, whether thats with his swing or equipment or whatever it is, then, you know, Rory will be winning golf tournaments. That natural swing of his doesnt just disappear overnight and I think hes had to cope with an awful lot of things and changes that hes had in the last 10 months, and its not just equipment and its not just media. I think theres been a lot of off-the-golf course things that have happened, management, etc., etc., that have all been a factor in whats happened this year." Theres a good way to answer all the questions, put an end to the comments and stop all the frustration -- just win. Might that come this week, just as it did a year ago? It seems unlikely but this is golf, a major, where anything can happen. ' ' '
