The Jazz's 118-68 loss to the Mavericks marked the lowest-scoring game by any team this season. The Rockets had the previous low with a 98-80 loss to the Thunder. Utah scored only 22 in the second half, the fewest points the Mavs have ever allowed in a half.

Left tackle Tyron Smith was one of nine Cowboys not to practice Wednesday. Smith had his back tighten up, but the expectation is he will be able to play Sunday at Atlanta. The bad news is he has had back troubles the last two seasons. Smith has played in every game this season and had his best game last week against Philadelphia. His absence in last year's game against the Falcons' contributed mightily to the eight times Dak Prescott was sacked with four coming against Smith's replacement, Chaz Green.

Heading into last week's game against Philadelphia, Ezekiel Elliott called it a must win. Heading into this week's game against Atlanta, Elliott said the Cowboys' mindset is not changed. “It's hard to need extra motivation. We're going into the game 4-5,” he said. “For the rest of the season our backs are going to be against the wall. We have to do the best we can to go out there and try to win every one of these last games. I'm sure those guys on the other side are the same way.”

The Cowboys do not have five defensive linemen practicing Wednesday: Daniel Ross (calf), David Irving (ankle), Maliek Collins (knee), Taco Charlton (shoulder) and Antwaun Woods (concussion). There is hope Collins, Charlton and Woods will be available for Sunday's game but the Cowboys could have to call up defensive linemen from the practice squad.
