Cowboys vs. Panthers 2012 preview: Dallas looking for another rebound performance

After yet another frustrating loss, the Dallas Cowboys head to Carolina to take on Cam Newton and the Panthers.

The Dallas Cowboys (2-3) hope to right the ship once again, as they travel to take on the Carolina Panthers (1-4) on Sunday.

The Cowboys are coming off another signature disappointing loss, a game in which the Cowboys offense found their way once again and fell just short of completing a rather miraculous comeback against the Baltimore Ravens. The 31-29 loss, in which clock management issues and a dropped two-point conversion doomed the Cowboys attempts to tie the game, casts more doubt on a team that was expected to take a big step under second-year head coach Jason Garrett.

The Carolina Panthers, meanwhile, are still attempting to find the magic that sustained them under quarterback Cam Newton in 2011. After passing for 4,000 yards and 21 touchdowns his rookie season, and rushing for 14, Newton has just four touchdown passes through five games to go along with five interceptions. The offense isn't nearly as explosive as a year before, scoring just 92 points on the season.

It's a game between two teams that feature inconsistent offenses, with Tony Romo leading a Cowboys attack that has yet to produce more than 29 points in a game this season.

The Dallas Cowboys face the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, Oct. 21 at 12 p.m. CT, with coverage on FOX.
