“Effectively, this potentially will be arguably the most watched recreation other than the Large Bowl, and I hated that it got down to only throwing the ball up and getting your penalties to salvage your broad plays,” Jones acknowledged. “And I judge we were into that. Now, create now not salvage me outrageous, I’m so ecstatic with our group for the trend we hung in, hung in and came wait on and performed, but it for sure’s frustrating for everyone, for all of our fans at this particular time, to bag a recreation that had you on pretty now not sure footing as to where you were going to be along with your fundamentals, i.e., whether these were going to be referred to as or now not. And they got calls, too, so it’s fair somewhat off steadiness formulation to play the game.”

However it for sure wasn’t beautiful.

In assembly with Mike McCarthy sooner than the game, Jones acknowledged there used to be an anticipation that it’d be a high-penalty recreation. Entering the competition, Shawn Hochuli’s crew threw the fifth-most flags (153) and had the third-very best penalty yardage (1,207) on the season.

“Twenty-eight penalties — I create now not in actuality know what the hell you capture to bag me to allege,” McCarthy acknowledged. “Write whatever you capture to bag, I’m all for it.”

The Cowboys bag been amongst the very best possible-penalized groups in the league all season. They moved into No. 1 in the league after Thursday’s recreation with 91 for 816 yards. The Raiders are 2nd with 89 for 785 yards.

“It used to be obviously frustrating,” McCarthy acknowledged. “The recreation used to be herky-jerky from start to create. Give our guys credit to continue to point of curiosity and fight. The numbers are absurd, no doubt note that. However a lot like everything in this recreation there may maybe be trends and patterns, and we anticipated this recreation being officiated this kind.

“However in the identical breath it’s the line that you just may maybe well presumably presumably even bag straddle. I create now not need our guys slowing down and having fun with slower. Now we bag tried that already and that didn’t wait on us overcoaching the penalties about a weeks wait on. We are going to come up on the balls of our toes and relief fighting. Now we bag got to in actuality point of curiosity on our fundamentals and create plays. We’ll grab a laborious witness at it. We overview the penalties a week. We shatter them down and this may maybe perhaps perhaps presumably very effectively be share of our most important emphasis as we put collectively for the Saints.”

Brown’s penalties accounted for 91 yards. He’s the third participant since 2000 to bag been flagged four times for defensive high-tail interference in a single recreation, becoming a member of Trayvon Mullen and Xavien Howard.

Brown referred to because it “one of them days,” though after one breakup in the 2nd quarter he looked to facetiously look a flag on him from the officers.

“As a DB, you no doubt got to bag a short reminiscence, on to the following play,” Brown acknowledged. “We’re in it until the stop. Unfortunately, that final penalty used to be valuable. Now we bag fair got to aid fighting. We are going to now not regulate when the ref is throwing flags or now not throwing flags. We are going to now not argue with them because it’s now not going to alternate anything else.”

Micah Parsons used to be referred to as for a roughing-the-passer penalty when it looked Carr fell into him.

“I judge we should always nonetheless be having fun with football, now not payment,” acknowledged the rookie linebacker.

The Cowboys also had a capability fumble recovery overturned in the first half after Jayron Kearse looked to scramble the ball free from tight stop Darren Waller. The replay educated certain the high-tail used to be incomplete, and McCarthy can also now not jam.

“I was in actuality on the sideline with my helmet off celebrating with my teammates,” Kearse acknowledged. “I will now not regulate the choice that they invent. I will now not regulate that. We’re fair going to aid having fun with football. To every his indulge in. You may maybe well presumably have the selection to flip the film on and every person that watches it will note what went on. I haven’t seen the play. I fair know from my point of gawk that I thought he used to be operating with the ball, personally. Savor I acknowledged, it’s the officiating that we got tonight. We fair must live with it.”
