Following one of the uglier defensive performances of the 2013 season--as season that’s seen plenty of those--Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett is quick to point out that this edition of the team has a track record of bouncing back after particularly nasty losses.
“A couple of different times in the year, we’ve had some bad games and games where we didn’t do what we need to do on defense. And we made the corrections, and we played better,” Garrett said, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “We simply have to do that again.”
There is some evidence to back this up, of course. The Cowboys bounced back and won their next game after the loss to Denver (in which they gave up 51 points), the loss to Detroit (in which they gave up 31) and the loss to New Orleans (in which they gave up 49).
“We’ve responded well to these kinds of games, and that’s happened over the course of this season, where teams have had a lot of yards, they’ve scored a lot of points, and we’ve gotten back to work and made adjustments that we think would help our football team, and we’ve played better,” Garrett said. “So we’ve simply got to do that again.”
