Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said that his team needs to challenge Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman instead of ignoring his side of the field.
The Dallas Cowboys are 4-1 and currently riding a four-game winning streak, but they will be put to the test as they face the Seattle Seahawks.
The Cowboys will have to play at a tough Seattle home field, and the Seahawks are known for performing especially well in their home games.
Their defense features cornerback Richard Sherman, who excels at covering his man and isn’t afraid to talk trash. This has made teams such as the Green Bay Packers throw toward his side of the field.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones vowed that his team would not fall into that category. “We can’t run from him. That’s easy to say and hard to do. We got to challenge him and make him at least cover us one-on-one and Dez (Bryant) of course is the guy who can do it,” the Cowboys owner told ESPN.com.
Wide receiver Dez Bryant is expected to be covered by Sherman, and he has continued to be a playmaker throughout the season. Running back DeMarco Murray, who leads the NFL in rushing, will look to open up the passing game and help the Cowboys slice the Seahawks defense.
