The Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett turned to former Washington Redskins coach Joe Gibbs to inspire his players before Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers.
The Cowboys beat the Panthers 19-14.
Gibbs, who owns the stock-car racing team Joe Gibbs Racing, lives in Charlotte and went to the team hotel Saturday night to speak to the players for the chapel service.
"He was talking about different situations he's been in and how he fought through them," Cowboys linebacker Dan Connor said. "He said when you're in a situation, you think it's the worst thing ever, but you have to have faith in God and push through it. That was the message. He was unbelievable."
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said his players have "immense respect" for the three time Super Bowl Champion Gibbs.
"He came into chapel, and talked about some of his low times," Jones said. "He spoke about some of the coaching errors. He wasn't directing it to the team at all, relative to our criticism this week of our sideline coaching decisions, but he talked a little about a couple that bit him.
"The players told me that when they hear Joe Gibbs talk about a few bad decisions, they know anybody can make them."
