Recent Home Woes Have The 2014 Dallas Cowboys On The Brink Of Historical Infamy
As evidenced by their won-loss record for the past three seasons, the Dallas Cowboys have shown a propensity of late for untiring consistency. It is this consistency which will be put to the test over these next two weeks, as the franchise looks to avert the scripting of an inglorious historical landmark.
The Cowboys have never won their fourth game of a season with Jason Garrett as the head coach. Neither have they won a fifth game.
If that trend continues in 2014 and the Cowboys lose games No. 4 (New Orleans) and No. 5 (Houston) it will mark the team’s first five-game home losing streak since Tom Landry and Jimmy Johnson lost a collective 14 games in a row at Texas Stadium in 1988 and 1989.
For an owner trying to promote the wealth, health, and prosperity of his franchise, this is one streak well worth avoiding.
For what it’s worth, Dallas has only had one four-game losing skid at home since ’89, and that cost Wade Phillips his job as head coach in 2010.
