Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy saw this one coming
The day following, the Cowboys was defeated by the Raiders on Thanksgiving; Mike McCarthy said there was something that the team needed to complete.
“Winning ugly is crucial, particularly during this period in the year,” coach Cowboys head coach stated. “Throughout the season, it’s time to cut down. The lineups change every week. It is the time to be able to perform the small things, particularly during the fourth quarter and also in-game situations, to win.”
The Cowboys played that game on Thursday night at the Superdome.
