The most important thing for the Cowboys (4-4) on Sunday was that they got a win to get back to .500 at the halfway point and get that bad taste from last week’s 34-7 embarrassment in Philadelphia out of their mouths.
And considering the upcoming schedule the Cowboys hope this was the beginning of something they can build on to make a second half run.
They host the Bills (5-3), who lost 27-11 to the Jets on Sunday, next week before facing the declining Redskins (3-5), losers of three straight, the Dolphins (1-7) and the Cardinals (2-6).
The possibilities certainly have owner Jerry Jones excited, as do the possible returns of linebacker Sean Lee (wrist) and running back Felix Jones (ankle).
“I know before this ball game, I had several of (Seattle’s) staff really compliment our personnel and just really talk about how they liked our players and if we could get some things going, we could really make some headway,” Jones said. “I don’t want to and not going to look at a schedule as much as I’m going to look at how we’re playing. Hopefully this gave us a hard game. I know we had a hard game, but it gave us something that we can go out here and build off of and maybe get a couple of guys back. I’m looking at we might be able to do that next week.”
Said linebacker Bradie James: We had to win this one. There is no dobut. Now its time to start putting them together and build on it.”
