Jerry Jones is one of the most visible owners in the National Football League. The Cowboys pride themselves on their reputation as “America’s Team.” Jones invested billions to produce the palatial AT&T Stadium. It is affectionately known as “Jerry World.” He has gone out of his way to make sure Dallas is unaffected by the COVID-19 outbreaks plaguing the rest of the league. This week, it was time management that cost them.

The Cowboys dropped a key NFC matchup on Sunday to the Arizona Cardinals. Dallas dropped to 11-5, tied with the Cards in a tight race for NFC playoff seeding. Jones wasn’t thrilled with the way his team went about things.

In his post-game address with 105.3 The Fan, Jones criticized his team for not having a time out available when it was desperately needed. Arizona halfback Chase Demonds fumbled with Dallas trailing 25-22 late in the fourth quarter. It was ruled on the field that he was down. Without a time out, coach Mike McCarthy wasn’t able to call for an instant replay challenge.

“Well, they didn’t rule it a fumble. That’s why you save a timeout if you can. But of course we were trying to keep something left on that clock to get it done. But that’s the risk you take. I wish we had had it left to use, could have made a big difference, obviously.”

Jones also criticized Sunday’s officiating crew. He said that particular group is known for calling penalties that others wouldn’t. He said the game could’ve looked different if there were different people refereeing the game.

In the end, a loss is a loss. Jones will surely have a talk with his coach about time management. The Cowboys are still in great shape despite taking the defeat. There is plenty of time to clean things up. Dallas should be looking forward to the Super Bowl rather than dwelling on a single loss. It’s a long season.
