Preparing to face his former team, the Jacksonville Jaguars, Dallas Cowboys defensive end Jeremy Mincey isn’t playing the “it’s just another game” card.
Mincey admits that he’d love to have a huge game against the Jags this Sunday when the two teams meet at Wembley Stadium in London. He played for Jacksonville from 2006 to 2013 when he was cut by the team. He finished last season with the Broncos and came to Dallas as a free agent during the offseason.
“Oh, yeah, it would definitely mean a lot to me to have a big game against my former team,” Mincey said, per ESPN Dallas. “I mean who wouldn’t want to do it? But I look forward to a great challenge. They’re going to come to play now. That’s one thing about Jacksonville. It’s in their DNA. They’re going to play you as hard as they can and I know this game will make their season. We definitely need to be focused and prepared.”
Mincey comes in with just one sack on the year, but he’s applied pressure to opposing quarterbacks all season. Obviously, close isn’t good enough for the veteran.
“I got to get him,” Mincey said. “I’m trying to get him. I mean against Washington I could’ve had at least two or three sacks. He just happened to throw it or he’s an inch away. I’m like, ‘C’mon man.’ It’s one of those things that’s frustrating but I know for me I’m going to have a game where I will really break out. I feel it coming.”
