Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was not pleased with his team’s effort against the New England Patriots on Sunday. Jones couldn’t help but express his frustration in the Cowboys loss to Tom Brady’s Patriots at Gillette Stadium.

The Cowboys fell to a record of 6-5 on the NFL season after losing a road game to New England in Week 12. The pathetic Cowboys offense could only muster nine points in the loss, which caused Jones great grief.

Inclement weather forced a low-scoring game. However, it didn’t help the Dallas head coach Jason Garrett decided to kick a field goal on fourth-and-seven on their 20-yeard-line in the final minutes of the game when he needed a touchdown.

“It’s having players ready. Special teams is nothing but coaching,” Jones said after the game. “Special teams is effort. Special teams is savvy. Special teams is thinking.”

“Special teams is a total reflection of coaching,” Jones said, via Jon Machota of The Athletic. “To me, special teams is 100 percent coaching. It’s 100 percent coaching. It’s strategy.”

“I don’t think there’s a game where a coaching staff couldn’t do better,” Jones said. “I don’t like that we’ve got so many [this year] as I’m standing here tonight.”

The Cowboys had a horrendous special teams day with two muffed punts, a missed field goal, and a blocked punt that led to the Patriots’ only touchdown on Sunday.

“This is very frustrating,” Jones said. “It’s frustrating just to be reminded that some of the fundamentals of football and coaching were what beat us out there today. … With the makeup of this team, I shouldn’t be this frustrated.”

The Cowboys also experienced an atrocious tripping call against them.

It should be noted that Garrett is in the final year of his contract.

Rob Gronkowski threw shade at the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday. Gronk hinted as to why the Cowboys would struggle against the Patriots during FOX’s halftime show.
