Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says being 3-3 puts his team in the pack in the division and the conference.
“It leaves us not digging out, if you look at where everybody else is around the league,” Jones said after the Cowboys’ 19-14 win against Carolina. “We’re not digging out of anything. We’ve got a chance to improve on where we are. We’ve got a big-time game coming up here against the Giants. We know what that game can mean. And we do a good job against the Giants and come out with a win, what is everybody going to be saying?
“So, it’s amazing what eight days could do.”
Jones defended himself for saying the Cowboys can evolve into a team that can compete for a championship this year.
“The key thing is, to make the statement like that, you have to believe you have a team that has the skill level, with the ability to improve, to get them from 2-3 to 3-3. This one does, in my opinion.
“And if you can be, and really make, improvement, you’ve got a chance to do some things at the end of the year.”
