Seattle's Earl Thomas bows in the direction of the Dallas bench after an interception

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott is accepting full blame for the team's 24-13 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, despite the fact that he had a season-high 127 rushing yards on just 16 carries.

Thomas had picked off his second pass of the day and the crowd at CenturyLink Field was going insane.

According to Gregg Ball of the Times Tribune in Seattle, Thomas didn't practice today but was at practice. In turn, Thomas skipped offseason workouts and only reported to Seattle just before the season started.

"I need to make sure my body is 100", Thomas told reporters.

"I'm investing in myself", the ninth-year veteran added. "Even pregame, a couple Cowboys coaches came up to me, I don't know if they were playing psychological games, but they were like, 'You ready for the trade tomorrow?'" "But I feel like if anything, I don't give a damn if it's small, I got a headache, I'm not practicing". On Sunday, as trade rumors continue to swirl, Thomas got the Cowboys.

It was a awful day for the Cowboys' starting running back. Fueled by Thomas going into their locker room previous year and telling head coach Jason Garrett to "come get me", many believed that the All-Pro safety would play this season in a Cowboys uniform instead of the blue and green of Seattle.
