Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones doesn’t think the handful of Giants defenders who went down with injuries in the second and third quarters of Sunday night’s victory were being 100 percent genuine.
In fact, Jones thought it was pretty obvious that this was a tactic employed by the team to slow down the Cowboys’ hurry-up offense.
“I thought us experts on football were the only ones who could see that,” Jones said when asked of the ruse, per the Dallas Morning News. “I didn’t know everybody could.
“It was so obvious it was funny. It wasn’t humorous because we really wanted the advantage and knew we could get it if we could get the ball snapped.”
The Cowboys responded to several of these “injuries” by complaining to the referees, and it happened often enough that NBC’s Cris Collinsworth briefly discussed it on the telecast on Sunday night.
