Jerry Jones Reacts To Cowboys Losing To Eagles
Jerry Jones reacted to the Cowboys losing to the Eagles, and he was far more restrained than most expected he would be.
Coming into this crucial game, everyone knew what the stakes were.
If Dallas won, the team would clinch the divisional crown once and for all.
A Philadelphia win would mean that the Eagles control their own fate, then needing to simply beat the New York Giants in Week 17 or have the Cowboys lose to the Washington Redskins next week.
When it was all said and done, the Eagles emerged with a 17-9 victory.
After the game, Jones admitted that he was “disappointed” with what transpired on Sunday.
#Cowboys owner Jerry Jones: “When you get yourself technically in a spot to come in to a Philadelphia team that has the players they got even though they have been missing a lot of them, you give yourself a chance to be real disappointed. We are.”

“When you get yourself technically in a spot to come in to a Philadelphia team that has the players they got even though they have been missing a lot of them, you give yourself a chance to be real disappointed,” he said.
When pressed on what specifically disappointed him most, Jones did not hold back.
“I thought we could up here and play a better game than we played,” he replied.
“I thought right up until the very end we could come in and make some plays and get it done.”
Dallas was held to a season-low nine points in this game.
Despite having multiple opportunities late to even the game up, a combination of bad play calling and awful execution kept that from actually happening.
Now, Jones will need to pray for two positive outcomes next week. First, he will need his team to beat the Redskins – which is no guarantee. And second, he will need the Giants to step up and take care of what the Cowboys could not against Philadelphia.
