The Dallas Cowboys aren’t in the greatest of positions as we begin the final month of the calendar year, but with a 38-33 victory over the woeful Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night, their playoff hopes are still alive. As such, owner and general manager Jerry Jones--who is never too far from discussing the team’s playoff chances--is cautiously optimistic.
“I’m real hopeful, I’m very hopeful, but I’m realistic,” Jones said Sunday night, per the Dallas Morning News. “I’m proud of the team, but we really have to call on everybody and everything to do everything, whether it’s a coach or a player, we have to do everything we can do to get these next four ballgames.”
With the win over Philly--who, it’s worth noting, has now lost eight straight--Dallas is 6-6.
“We ought to take these four games and say, ‘Hey, we’ve got an opportunity here but let’s get in here and dedicate ourselves.’ That’s the way I feel about it,” Jones continued. “I’m proud that we have an opportunity.”
