    Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett is hopeful that Tony Romo will play against the Jaguars on Sunday, but he said this week that he still has faith in backup Brandon Weeden.

    Weeden struggled replacing Romo in Sunday’s 28-17 loss to the Cardinals, going 18 of 33 passing for 183 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions.

    "There were some positive things in the game [Sunday] that you can point to," Garrett said, per ESPN Dallas. "But for the most part we didn't do what we needed to do in the passing game throughout the game. We've got to build on some of the good things that did happen. There were a couple of scoring drives that were positive.

    “What happens in a game like that, you hear me say this a lot, there's one play within one drive, you have 10 scoring opportunities in the game and if you don't make it in the run game or the pass game or you get behind the chains with a penalty, it starts to impact the game. We had a couple of those. [We] didn't convert on third down like we had up to this point this year and some of those plays that impacted those scoring chances certainly hurt us."
