Jerry Remains Confident in Run Game

The Cowboys rushed for just 37 yards on 16 carries in the Week 2 loss to the Chiefs



    In his weekly appearance on 105.3-FM The Fan on Tuesday, Jerry Jones went out of his way to say he wouldn’t make any excuses for the Cowboys’ 17-16 loss to the Chiefs on Sunday. He then went on to say a bunch of stuff that could be described as, well, excuses.

    Take the running game, for instance.

    Dallas went for just 37 yards on 16 carries--25 on 12 by DeMarco Murray and 14 on four by Lance Dunbar. A pretty forgettable appearance, for sure. But Jones would like to point out that the Chiefs have a good run defense, and says he (and the team) remains confident in the backfield as it is.

    “When I look at everything, I see improvement in the future in our running game,” Jones said, per the Dallas Morning News. “The big thing, though, that I’d like to point out is Kansas City’s got a good defensive front. This [Dontari] Poe, we all got real familiar with him. He was the talk of the combine two years ago.

    “He’s a handful. And he did give us fits inside. Hopefully, there won’t be many Poe’s around the corner.”
