(WNFL) - Dallas Cowboys' owner Jerry Jones calls his team's 37-36 home loss to Green Bay one of the quote, "hardest losses that I've ever experienced." It put Jones on the defensive over the future of his head coach, after Jason Garrett was given a vote of confidence a week ago when the Chicago Bears blew out the Cowboys 45-28. Yesterday, the Packers came back from 23 points down at halftime to win. Pundits almost immediately began criticizing the Cowboys for not running the ball much in the fourth quarter, keeping the Packer offense off the field and not giving them a chance to come back. Instead, Dallas quarterback Tony Romo threw interceptions in his final two possessions -- Green Bay scored five touchdowns in the second half -- and the Packer defense had enough stops to stay in the playoff hunt at 7-6-and-1. Three years ago, Garrett was promoted after the Cowboys got crushed at Green Bay 45-to-7 on a Sunday night, and coach Wade Phillips got the ax the next day. Yesterday, Jones said it would be a "bad mistake" to jump to conclusions about Garrett's future so soon after such a bitter defeat. Cowboys' receiver Dez Bryant walked off the field with 1:22 left, after Tramon Williams intercepted Romo's final pass. Bryant refused comment after the game but he tweeted quote, "I was emotional -- It had nothing to do with my teammates -- We fought and didn't finish."
