Cowboys running low on interceptions despite major investments in new cornerbacks

Dallas cornerback Morris Claiborne probably figured his first NFL touchdown would come on an interception. The rookie had to settle for a fumble return because the picks have been hard to come by for the Cowboys.

After trading up eight spots to take Claiborne at No. 6 in this year's draft and committing at least $26 million to free agent Brandon Carr, Dallas is last in the league with five interceptions and the only team without a player who has at least two heading into Sunday's game at Cincinnati (7-5).

Coach Jason Garrett says, "We certainly want to create more takeaways."

Improving the minus-10 turnover ratio might be the only way for the Cowboys (6-6) to stay in the playoff race.
