Garrett talks about difficult, but good, post-game conversation with Brown's mother, giving her game ball

The Cowboys gave the game ball to Jerry Brown’s mother. Cowboys coach Jason Garrett talked about the conversation he had with her post-game on Sunday and that he enjoyed it, despite how difficult it was.

“I really loved talking to Jerry’s mom,” Garrett said. “I wanted to tell her what our team did, and I just said, ‘Hey, this is Jason Garrett. I coach the Cowboys.’ She said, ‘Yeah, I just watched the game.’ That was … It was a hard conversation to get through, but in a really good way, was a hard conversation. I just told her we loved her son, and we were going to give her a game ball in his memory. He inspired us a great deal. So, that’s the conversation I had. It was one that I was really glad I was able to have, to tell her that.

“I told the team I just talked to her. Again, there was a lot of emotion throughout the whole day for everybody.”
