But turnovers and ball security aren't the only drive killers.
"It's not just interceptions, we have been preaching about playing smart," Holgorsen said. "The two things I talk about are penalties, especially pre-snap penalties that's something that just must be eliminated, and taking care of the football. We work on taking care of the ball every day, typically first games are won by the team with the least turnovers."
Junior quarterback Brandon Weeden will be the trigger man in the offense and his decision making will be critical if the Cowboys want to limit their interceptions and overall turnovers.
But it's not all on Weeden.
"We trust Brandon to make good decisions," Holgorsen said. "(But) when (the ball) is in the air it's the receiver's job to catch it or make sure they don't."
Said Blackmon: "That's the No. 1 rule. If you can't catch the ball you're supposed to turn into a defender and knock it down. (A interception) is as much our fault as it is Brandon's fault."
