Despite Sunday's victory coming by a narrow 19-14 margin against a one-win Carolina Panthers team, Jerry Jones called the outcome "satisfying" for his club.
"Candidly, the win, to get out on that score, on the upper end of that score was beautiful to me," the Cowboys owner and general manager said. "There wasn't one thing ugly about it to me."
The Cowboys improved to 3-3, which keeps them in the middle of the NFC East standings. Although Jones said that he thought the Cowboys would be more effective throwing against the Panthers, he focused mostly on the victory keeping his team in contention in the division.
"With this team that I believe can improve and has room for serious improvement, and I say that positively, 3-3 keeps you in the hunt," Jones said. "All you have to do is look at the rest of the league and you're in the hunt. If you can be, and really make improvement, then you have a chance to do some things at the end of the year.
"The key thing is, to make a statement like that, you have to believe that you have a team that's got a skill level and got the ability to improve from what got them from 2-3 or 3-3, this one does in my opinion."

The Carolina Panthers, at 1-4, must beat the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday if they want to remain relevant this season. Unfortunately, they will have to do it without starting cornerback Chris Gamble, and, most likely, starting linebacker Jon Beason.

When the Panthers wrapped up their captivating 2011 season, highlighted by the standout play of rookie quarterback Cam Newton and a respectable 6-10 record, team general manager Marty Hurneys job looked secure.
But after a 1-5 start this season, Hurney is now out of a job. The Panthers made the move to relieve Hurney of his team duties Monday morning after 14 years with the team...

CHARLOTTE, NC -- The Carolina Panthers continued their 2012 swoon with a 16-14 home loss to the equally desperate Dallas Cowboys on Sunday at Bank of America Stadium.
As a result, the Panthers dropped to 1-5 on the season and are nearly a virtual lock to miss the playoffs once again despite that being the team's stated mission in preseason camp.
The following are both teams...

So, what does this mean about your team?

It may mean that they are likely exactly what they appear to be:...
