Cowboys owner Jerry Jones vents frustration over team’s struggles
The Dallas Cowboys have continued to be one of the more disappointing teams this season despite sitting atop the NFC East division standings.
The Cowboys suffered another discouraging loss falling 31-14 on the road against the Chicago Bears on Thursday night. During his weekly interview on 105.3 The Fan, team owner Jerry Jones made it clear what his team needs to do over the final three games of the season.

“We’ve got to play better,” Jones said. “That’s all there is to it. . . . We have not played at the level that I thought our personnel would play at when I look back at the entire season.”
The Cowboys began the year on the right foot, winning their first three games. However, it has been all downhill from there, dropping seven out of their last 10 games played. They have had tremendous issues in finding success against formidable opponents this season, holding an 0-6 record against teams with a .500 record or better.
That has been their Achilles heel that only put them in a much tighter spot then they should be for the NFC East division title. Their struggles have kept the Philadelphia Eagles in the picture, despite them being playing well below their lofty expectations.
The Eagles could grab a share of the division lead with a win over the New York Giants on Monday night, but the Cowboys control their own fate from this point on. Dallas will look to get back on track at home in Week 15 against the Los Angeles Rams.
