Dan Bailey made all six of his field-goal attempts, and with David Buehler nursing a strained groin, he had two touchbacks on kickoffs. Bailey's performance led to a local debate about whether the Cowboys need two kickers on their 53-player roster.
But owner Jerry Jones said Buehler's job is safe.
"We want David Buehler to get well," Jones said on his weekly radio show on KRLD-FM. "He will need the bye to really get well, I think. We need that kickoff deep in that end zone. That touchback is an important part of the game.
"...Buehler is too big of an asset for us not to count on him the rest of the year."
Buehler has 56 touchbacks in his career. He also was the field-goal kicker last season, but made only 24 of 32 last season and missed two extra points.
