After watching the Philadelphia Eagles’ Jordan Matthews streak into the end zone almost untouched for the game-winning touchdown in overtime, Cowboys defensive end Jeremy Mincey was left in the home locker room of AT&T Stadium looking for answers.
“We definitely got to get together and figure out ways to stop this madness,” Mincey said after the 33-27 loss, per the Dallas Morning News. “What is this, six in a row? That's too much. And we're way better than that, that's what's frustrating about it. That talent we possess and the guys we have on the field and then come up short, six games in a row, it's unacceptable.
“It's unacceptable for me, it's unacceptable for the rest of the guys. So we'll get that fixed.”
Mincey, who has become a defensive leader since being signed as a free agent prior to the 2014 season and led the team in sacks last year, hopes early wins against the Giants and the Eagles and two chances against the Redskins in front of them will be enough to keep them alive in a down NFC East.
Even though history suggests it won’t.
“We're still alive,” Mincey said. “We still got hope. We're 1-1 with the Giants and we're 1-1 with the Eagles. Hopefully we can get the Redskins twice and get back in this thing. We're not going to give in, I don't care how deep in the hole we are. We're going to find our way to climb out of this hole. We will find our way.”
