Turnovers doom Detroit Lions in 24-6 loss to Dallas Cowboys

Turnovers doom Detroit Lions in 24-6 loss to Dallas Cowboys

ARLINGTON, Texas — Jamaal Williams sat in front of his locker with his head bowed, brushing his hair, battling for his role in another confusing Detroit Lions loss.

Williams lost a fumble on the goal line early in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s 24-6 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, the second of five turnovers the Lions committed in a second-half snowball .

The Cowboys turned three of those errors into the game’s only three touchdowns and retired in the final minutes with a win that left the Lions (1-5) with the worst record in the NFL.

“I put it on me,” Williams told a small group of reporters after the game. “We should have scored and everything would have been different if I hadn’t put us in this situation where people had to do more than they had to, then we wouldn’t be in this situation.”

Williams had never lost a fumble before Sunday, when it happened in the 745th race of his career. He said he never fully secured the ball, which he lost when he hit a bunch of defenders near the goal line.

“I put that on my back,” Williams said. “It’s my fault and it won’t happen again. I’m going back to work. I’m motivated, I’m pissed off. So no matter who we play next, they are able to get it.”
