Things are taking a gloomy tone within the Dallas Cowboys organization after the team fell to 6-5 on the yeardue to the offense scoring 9 points at the New England Patriots in Week 12, again, finding another way to lose.
The Patriots had to grind for 13 points themselves in a game headlined by inclement weather, but what they didn’t do was give up penalties and special teams mistakes. Also, Jason Garrett will be forever questioned about his decision to kick a field goal in the waning minutes of the game when the team was in position to take a shot at a needed touchdown that would’ve given Dallas a chance to tie the score. Instead, on fourth-and-short, they opted for a field goal pushing the score to 13-9, and the Patriots clamped down from there.
It was all owner Jerry Jones could take, voicing an unusually scathing level of frustration about what he witnessed at Gillette Stadium.
