Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin is on the verge of leading the team to their worst defensive season in franchise history, he remains confident that the unit can bounce back over the final two weeks.
For now, his message is simple: Let’s not feel sorry for ourselves before our season is over.
“I walk in that room, whatever time we meet, 8:30 in the morning. It starts with coach Garrett," Kiffin said, per ESPN Dallas. “You go into your defensive room and you split up and away you go. You walk in, 'Get your heads up, let’s go.' That’s the way it works. We ain’t going to pout around. We’ll be ready to play.”
One area where Kiffin’s 4-3 defense has worked has been in the turnovers department. They have 14 interceptions, tied for 12th in the league, through 14 games. But they only have three in the last six games. Kiffin isn’t worried about the lag, though.
"You just have to keep doing it," Kiffin said. "Like I say sometimes, turnovers are like sacks. They come in bunches. Hopefully they’ll work the other way the next week."
