Owner Jerry Jones knows the Cowboys are being given no chance to win against Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos on Sunday.
But he likes his team's chances because of the parity of the NFL and the play of quarterback Tony Romo. He says a win on Sunday would be a big plus for the Cowboys in what they hope to accomplish this season.
“I like Tony going in big game like this, kind of respect we have for them,” Jones said. “I like these kinds of games in the NFL because we know where parity can be in the NFL. We know how easy it is where one team can slip up and win a game. It would be areal major plus to catch major in here and come out here with a win. That is a lot to play for
We recognize that.”
Jones said he would be worried about playing against Peyton Manning even if his defense hadn’t just given up 401 yards passing to San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers. He said the offense is going to have to help out.
“This will be real challenge we got,” Jones said. “It’s going to take the offense doing its part and keep the ball out his hands. What we have to do is keep ball out his hands and sustain some drive. We are going t have to make some third downs.”
