Jason Garrett speaks out on being winless against winning teams this season

Cowboys, Jason Garrett

After losing to the New England Patriots in Foxborough, the Dallas Cowboys are 6-5. Inside of that record is a scary number: going winless against teams with a winning record. Head coach Jason Garrett says that doesn’t matter to his team.

It really doesn’t matter to us,” Garrett said after the game, via Charean Williams of Pro Football Talk. “Obviously, this is a really good football team. I think they have won [21] games in a row in this building, and their history of success is well documented. So we knew it was going to be a great challenge today, and unfortunately we came up short.”

The Cowboys’ six victories have come against teams with a combined 16-46-1 record, beating the Philadelphia Eagles, Washington Redskins, New York Giants (twice), Detroit Lions and Miami Dolphins.

Dallas’ five losses have come against a cumulative record of 39-15, dropping games against the Patriots, Minnesota Vikings, Green Bay Packers, New Orleans Saints and worst of all, the 4-7 New York Jets, which was their first win of the season.

The Cowboys’ schedule does let up, but they do face multiple winning teams soon. Four days from now, they will face the 8-3 Buffalo Bills on Thanksgiving. In Week 15, they will host the 6-4 Los Angeles Rams.

The Cowboys have playoff aspirations and much more. Though they remain as the top of the NFC East, with the Eagles reeling, they won’t look the part of a playoff team if they can’t beat other teams that they may face come January. Something has got to change.
