The Cowboys want turnovers so much, they’re going to stop calling them turnovers.
Defensive coordinator Rob Ryan joked Friday in his weekly media session that he now calls turnovers “takeovers.”
“Obviously, we’re not good at getting turnovers. We changed the name,” he said. “So I think we’re going to do much better. We’re getting takeovers, so we’re ready to go.”
The Cowboys have only four takeaways, an interception and three fumble recoveries, including a muffed punt.
“We’ve got a sound defense, we’ve got great players, we’re not turning people loose,” Ryan said. “The takeovers are coming, and that’s what we’re going to do.”
