|Cowboys owner Jerry Jones discusses the positives and negatives after Sunday's win against the Bucs, Mike Jenkins' return and more. |
It was the whipped cream to the Dallas Cowboys' 16-10 victory Sunday.
Dez Bryant's 44-yard punt return was the cherry, but it was the Cowboys' defense -- unlike last week in Seattle -- that had a solid performance against a young and inspired Buccaneers team.
