Video: 6-6 Cowboys Travel to Chicago to Play the 6-6 in Thursday Night Action

A pair of 6-6 teams do battle to start week 14 in the NFL, as the Bears and Cowboys go to war in Thursday’s NFL lid lifter.

Here’s a preview:

Jerry Jones Believes Cowboys Coach Jason Garrett Can Still Lead a Team

The questions aren’t going away any time soon about Jason Garrett’s job status with the Cowboys, but Jerry Jones believes the coach is qualified to lead a team, Nick Shook of NFL.com reports.

It just might not be the team he’s currently leading.

Jones was asked during his Tuesday morning appearance on 105.3 The Fan about Garrett and why, with the Cowboys sitting at 6-6 and not looking too hot, the owner doesn’t want to make an in-season coaching change. He first referred to Garrett’s work ethic and knowledge of his team before shifting to his opinion on selecting a Super Bowl-caliber coach and how it’s admittedly an inexact science.

“Nobody has the exclusive skills to get the job done so that collectively you can win a Super Bowl,” Jones said, per The Athletic. “But there are qualified people. Jason Garrett is one of them. In my opinion, Jason Garrett will be coaching in the NFL next year.”

Those in support of Garrett can find comfort in Jones’ statement that Garrett “is the guy for the job.” But as we all know, this league is all about wins and losses. The Cowboys might make the playoffs by way of a division filled with dreadful adversaries, but limping to the postseason likely won’t be enough. Garrett’s guys will have to do so with emphasis, force and maybe even a little bit of flair.

“Listen, I’m worried about winning ball games for our fan base,” Jones said. … “There’s nobody that shoves any more out there than I do, than the Cowboys do. We put the show on, and we spend the money. And we want wins.”

Jerry Jones Says the Fallout from the Cowboys Season Falls on Him

There is still plenty of fall out from the Cowboys loss in New England on Sunday to the Patriots, to the point where Jerry Jones is again coming out and talking about the tough to swallow loss.

Jones was not happy with the team after the game Sunday, and again on Tuesday stated how unhappy he is that after 11 games the team is just 6-5, one game ahead of the Eagles in the NFC East.

“When you’re general manager, which I am, those coaches are out there at my ultimate decision,” Jones said during an appearance on 105.3 The Fan.

“It’s very much within my realm of purview, if you will, to not only be standing there as an owner but be standing there as the general manager who put the staff there to begin with. People seem to think it’s particularly harsh to have criticism and they think when you look at the other side of the field and call a job well done, that might mean that’s extraordinary criticism of the job you’ve done on the other side of the field.

“At the end of the day, the buck stops with me.”

The Cowboys were 3-0 to start the season, but since have dropped five of seven games, and they are struggling to find consistency on both sides of the ball.

Many people are thinking that the final axe to this season is going to drop on current coach Jason Garrett, through Jones has been careful not to be overly critical of his head coach.

The Cowboys had a chance late on the road in the rain in New England, but couldn’t do enough to get a key win over the Pats, losing 13-9 to drop to 6-5.

Here’s the highlights:

A Number of Cowboys are Sick Just Ahead of Sunday’s Game Against New England

The Cowboys already have a tall enough task Sunday as they take on the New England Patriots, but the outlook isn’t very good considering a number of players on the team are dealing with a respiratory infection.

Calvin Watkins reports that a number of players and even coaches on the team have it.

Here’s a tweet talking about the situation with the team less than 24 hours away from taking on Tom Brady and company.

It remains to be seen if the team is going to be forced to sit any of their sick players due to the infection hitting the team.

One interesting fact though, even though the team is from Dallas, the AT&T Stadium is located in Arlington, Texas and that is where they play their home games.
