Jason Garrett: 'My confidence doesn't wane'
|ESPNDallas.com's Tim MacMahon and Jean-Jacques Taylor join Ben and Skin to talk all things football in another award-winning Cowboys Think Tank. |
It’s the Cowboys' lowest point production in a three-game stretch in contests started and finished by Tony Romo since two three-game spans during the 2009 season.
In Weeks 9-11, they scored 34 points against the Eagles (W, 20-16), Green Bay (L, 17-7) and Washington (W, 7-6). In Weeks 10-12, they had the decisions against Green Bay and Washington, followed by a 24-7 win against Oakland.
“My confidence doesn’t wane,” coach Jason Garrett said. “I believe in the players. I believe in what we’re doing. Just got to do it better.”
Doing it better this week against Chicago might be difficult. The Bears are allowing only 16.7 points per game but their two wins came against Indianapolis and St. Louis, which rank 25th and 22nd in points per game so far.
Romo is 1-1 against the Bears in his career, and the Cowboys scored 34 and 20 points in those games. Can one big-scoring game change the fortunes of an offense stuck in neutral?
“I don’t think we think about it that way, ‘Hey, let’s go score 40,’” Garrett said. “Let’s go execute ball plays. If we execute ball plays, do things the right way on a consistent basis our offense will be the consistent and good offense that it’s been in the past.”
