The Dallas Cowboys’ defense struggled to get stops again, this time on Monday Night Football against the Chicago Bears. The Cowboys have the worst ranked defense in the league allowing 426.8 yards per game, they’re also the worst against the pass allowing an average of 298.5 yards per game.
Cowboys owner and Jerry Jones came out and expressed his faith in defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin and now he is getting a vote of confidence from head coach Jason Garrett.
“Absolutely,” Garrett said, via Calvin Watkins of ESPN Dallas. “Well, we just have to go back to work. We have to look at what happened in the ballgame. There were some technical things. There were some scheme things. We just have to make the necessary corrections. A couple of different times in the year we’ve had some bad games and games where we didn’t do what we needed to do on defense and we made the corrections and we played better. We simply have to do that again.”
The Cowboys fell out of first place in the NFC East but if they run the table to end the season they can still win the division.
“Well, we’re certainly in this situation that we’re in, and the challenge is for us to simply do that, as players and as coaches,” Garrett said. “So the opportunity is going to happen at 3:25 on Sunday afternoon against the Packers. So, got to learn from this one, make the corrections and get ready to go against the Packers.”
