Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett applauded his team’s physicality in the victory over the Titans in Nashville on Sunday, a game that saw Dallas post 220 yards rushing and control the ball for over 40 minutes.
“Rushing for over 200 yards in the National Football League is a hard thing to do and you certainly embrace any of those games. There’s no guarantee you can play like this,” Garrett told the team’s website. “If you decide that this is the way we want to play, it’s hard to guarantee you’re going to be able to do that week in and week out.”
Obviously, as Garrett points out, it’s not as though Dallas will be able to dominate the ball to the degree they did against the Titans week in and week out. But that kind of performance is what the team aspires to.
“It all follows with a plan we’ve had really for a couple or three years to be able to do this and be this kind of a football team--a physical team that controls the line of scrimmage and can run the ball, early in the middle and at the end of games,” Garrett said.
