Bailey did successfully kick four field goals

hadn’t missed two field goals in one game since his 2011 rookie season – the only time that’s ever happened previously in the 2015 kicker’s career.

“My standard is just much higher than that. So obviously I’m disappointed individually but I think the most important thing is we won. It was a good team win.”

Bailey did successfully kick four field goals, including three that accounted for all of the Cowboys’ points in the fourth quarter, to bring his season total to 25-of-30. The four conversions were from 27, 40, 38 and 33 yards.

The Cowboys had a chance to win the game late, but couldn’t get into field-goal position for Dan Bailey, who had already drilled five field goals.Nike Cowboys #9 Tony Romo Navy Blue White Men's Stitched NFL Elite Split Jersey

As has been well-covered by now, there will be plenty of scrutiny on Romo’s future after he lost his starting job to Dak Prescott in the fall. Romo suffered a fractured vertebrae in August, ceding the way for the rookie quarterback to lead the Cowboys to one of their most successful regular seasons ever.

Justin Durant is my guy. has done a nice job in his place while out, but Durant has a knack for making those game-changing type of plays when he is on the field. I believe that the Packers will struggle to get a handle on him and Sean Lee in this game. Their ability to read and react quickly will be too much for their inside three.

It seems unlikely the Cowboys would open a quarterback competition after Prescott’s Pro Bowl campaign, and it seems even unlikelier that an accomplished veteran like Romo would want to remain in Dallas as a backup.

The Cowboys continue to do a nice job of playing in their dime package. They made it hard on Carson Wentz with this “Clog & Cover” approach. David Irving, Maliek Collins and Benson Mayowa have been getting pressure due to the way that the secondary has been able to pick up receivers and tight ends down the field. Damien Wilson was a nice addition this week to the scheme with his ability to play as a spy on Wentz. When the rookie quarterback tried to move around in the pocket to buy time, Wilson was right there to force him to have to make a decision with the ball, and that benefited the defense. His closing speed is a real asset in these types of situations.cheap dallas cowboys jerseys

Damien Wilson has a chance to be a really good player for this defense. His ability to run and cover ground is impressive. He is a physical finisher when in position, but he needs to play under better control and not overrun plays. He led the defense with eight tackles on the day, but had a chance to add two to three more. He was just too aggressive. I really like what he could develop into as a blitzer with his speed.

Asked about the backup quarterback position, Jones himself made the point that the Cowboys don’t need to worry as much about quarterback depth this spring – which makes sense, given that Prescott is just 23 years old with three years remaining on his rookie contract.
