Jason Witten says Cowboys got to play better

Nov 3, 2013; Arlington, TX, USA; Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten (82) argues an offensive pass interference call called on him with headlines man Phil McKinnely (110) in the fourth quarter against the Minnesota Vikings at AT

The Dallas Cowboys bounced back from the loss to the Detroit Lions and beat the Minnesota Vikings. Cowboys fans might have been hoping for or expecting a big win over a team that had a 1-6 record, but they needed a late touchdown pass from Tony Romo to Dwayne Harris to win the game

Tight end Jason Witten understands there thought process and said that the Cowboys need to play better.

“You never minimize a win, but somewhere deep down, you know you’ve got to play a lot better,” Witten said, via ESPN Dallas. “You can be first place in the division and all that, but know that you’ve got to play better moving forward. We all have to realize that and live in the now and understand that moving forward; we need to do that in all phases of our football team.

“Enjoy the win, but deep down know that we’ve got to play better moving forward. That’ll be the message.”

One of those areas they need to improve is the ground tame. The Cowboys did have a franchise record low 9 rushes for 36 yards. Surprisingly that rushing total is only one yard lower than their previous season low against the Kansas City Chiefs.
