The Dallas Cowboys running game has been one of their offense’s weakest points during the season. That hasn’t been the case the past two games, and the Cowboys rushed for 198 yards against the Chicago Bears despite losing the game.
Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said he thinks the run game will improve even more against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday.
“I would like to think that just fundamentally we have improved in our running game,” Jones said Friday on 105.3 The Fan [KRLD-FM], via Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News. “Our offensive line, I think, is better than when the season started. That’s a good thing, because I thought we’ve done a good job the last few games of protecting Tony [Romo].
“But I do also think that the running game, which will open it up for what we want to do in the passing game – we all know how all that fits together – that has improved, and we should see a better running attack against Green Bay. But different teams, of course, that we play dictate that.”
