Sunday night’s game against the New York Giants feels like a showdown to Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.
He said on his weekly radio show Friday on the FAN 105.3 FM that it’s a matchup of teams with Super Bowl potential.
“They’re very big in the hunt as far as, if you will, a Super Bowl,” Jones said, “because we saw a team last year, the Packers, come back and really play well at the end and get it. So they’re there. But we’re there, too.”
Jones said it’s important for the Cowboys to take advantage of the home field. They’re 0-2 against the Giants at Cowboys Stadium. Against everybody else, they’re 14-7.
“We’ve got a game here that home field means a lot to us,” Jones said. “We’ve played well there this year. It’s important that our fans – and I’m selling, lobbying now – we’ll have largest crowd that we’ve had there in probably the last year. We need it loud, and we need it rambunctious to help us beat these Giants.”
The Cowboys are 5-1 at home this year. In the one game they lost, against Detroit, they blew a 24-point second-half lead.
