Even before the Chiefs improved to 3-0 on Thursday night, Cowboys owner and General Manager Jerry Jones was saying that no one should downgrade Dallas for its loss last Sunday in Kansas City.
Jones pointed out that the Chiefs were favored going into the game against the Cowboys, so his team had a tall order going into Kansas City.
“We went in there as the underdog,” Jones said on KRLD 105.3 FM, via the Star-Telegram. “The Cowboys were the underdog going in the game. The line actually expected us not to win that game. And so, let’s keep that in mind.”
The NFL frowns on discussions of point spreads, but Jones pointed out that the Vegas oddsmakers usually know what they’re talking about. And they did when they made the Chiefs favorites over the Cowboys.
“It never ceases to amaze me,” he said. “Actually, they were right. I think, what were they a three-point favorite? End up losing by one. It never ceases to amaze me how close these things pan out.”
Good news for Jones: The Cowboys are four-point favorites over the Rams on Sunday.
