Cowboys' Jerry Jones disagrees with Mike McCarthy's clock management during win over Charger
Jerry Jones, the outspoken owner of the Dallas Cowboys, found himself in the spotlight yet again
but this time it wasn't because of drama he intended to create. After the Cowboys' narrow 20-17 victory over the Chargers,
Jones openly expressed his disagreement with a decision made by the team's head coach, Mike McCarthy
With the game tied at 7-7, the Cowboys had a critical decision to make just before halftime. Instead of taking a more aggressive approach to potentially score a touchdown,
they opted for a safer 32-yard field goal by Brandon Aubrey as time expired. Jones didn't mince words,
His point was valid. Just before the field goal, Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott completed a 15-yard pass to tight end Jake Ferguson,
which turned into a 30-yard play due to a Chargers penalty. With first-and-10 on the Chargers' 17-yard line and two timeouts in hand,
Prescott chose to throw a conservative 3-yard pass to Tony Pollard with just 14 seconds left in the half.
Instead of using a timeout to attempt another play, McCarthy let the clock run down to three seconds before sending the kicker onto the field.
