Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones believes the team needs a win over the Jaguars this weekend in London to turn the tide and get an emotional boost to start the second half of the season.
After starting out 6-1, the Cowboys have dropped two straight, to the Redskins and the Cardinals. Making things worse, in the loss to the Redskins, Tony Romo suffered a pair of small fractures in his surgically repaired back--an injury that sidelined him for the loss to the Cards. It looks like Romo could return to action this week though which, by itself, would go a long way in providing the team with a lift.
“Yes, we needed to win those two that we lost, and we needed them badly,” Jones said, per the Dallas Morning News. “We got a tough schedule ahead of us. We’ve got more games that we’ll be playing away from our home field, our stadium which will require travel, but we got more games to play away than we do at home and certainly just from the standpoint of the talent, just from the standpoint of numbers we need a win.
“But we also need a win from the standpoint of a psyche of the team and this has been disappointing to have lost these last two games, both of these games. Just as we were building, we don’t want to build in the wrong direction or go in the wrong direction. In every respect this game is as important and consequentially it’s very important that Tony Romo plays in the game if he is able to play.”
