Seahawks pick Smith starter after preseason loss to Cowboys

The exhibition season is over for the Dallas Cowboys

Defensively, Dallas brought back memories of last season when they led the NFL with 34 takeaways

The defensive was jumpstarted by three reserve players continuing the turnover parade after leading the NFL with 34 in 2021

The group earned five in this game – four interceptions and one fumble recovery

The Cowboys’ defense finished the job with a late muffed snap recovery by Storey Jackson and a tipped interception by Juanyeh Thomas as Dallas ended the exhibition season with a meaningless 2-1 record

The secondary wasn’t the only group putting in work as rookie Sam Williams, despite two unnecessary roughness calls, was a menace all evening

Mukuamu now has two interceptions in three games as he cemented his role as the fourth safety

 The second-round pick out of Ole Miss had a sack, five tackles and two TFLs while also drawing a holding penalty

It seemed clear Lock's rough night, which did include a touchdown pass, wasn't the deciding factor
