Jerry Jones was not quite as vocal as usual following the Dallas Cowboys’ game on Sunday, though he did express his disappointment over the outcome.
The Cowboys had a chance to clinch the NFC East with a win over the Philadelphia Eagles, but they fell short in a 17-9 loss. The team owner said after the game that he was “disappointed” about losing, especially to a team that has so many injuries.
Jones said he was disappointed about the inability to make plays.
The Cowboys were held to nine points, which matched their season-low total. Tony Pollard had a key fumble. The team did not convert on some critical late-game situations, and Jason Garrett decided not to go for it on a few plays late either, such as a 4th-and-1 where he punted and 4th-and-4 where he kicked a field goal.
The last time Dallas was held to nine points, Jones went off on his coaches, hoping it would spark the team. The opposite happened. Now the Cowboys need to win next week and hope Philly loses in order to make the playoffs.
