Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones encourages his team before the game as the Dallas Cowboys play the Arizona Cardinals.
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was obviously disappointed in Sunday’s 19-13 overtime loss to the Cardinals.
He understands the Cowboys blew a golden opportunity on Sunday to possibly take a two-game lead in the NFC East and clinch the division title with a victory against the Giants next Sunday at Cowboys Stadium.
But Jones said he never expected the Cowboys, who saw their four-game winning streak snapped, to win all their remaining games.
He said the Cowboys just need to show they can bounce back and play well against the Giants, all while understanding they made their job a little bit tougher.
“Certainly we can still control our destiny,” owner Jerry Jones said. “I think we can do look at it that way (with the Giants showdown next week.) The team has got to be able to do that. We know this thing is about getting setbacks. This is definitely can be a setback. But we’ve got to come back out here and play. So we’ve got a lot of work cut out for us.”
The Cowboys (7-5) remain one game ahead of the Giants (6-6) atop the division standings.
