On their Super Bowl run in 2007, the fifth-seeded Giants took down No. 1 Dallas in the divisional playoff round, 21-17, at Texas Stadium. The loss to their division rivals was the sixth-straight postseason defeat for the Cowboys, and that was too much for the owner.
“That’s where I went to the place I used to go to when they would call and tell me that I had just lost all of my money on a dry hole,’’ Jones said in the article on Dallasnews.com.
That was the third of three times for Jones.
The previous two were the Cowboys’ loss to San Francisco in the NFC Championship Game in January of 1995 and being beaten by expansion team and intrastate rival Houston Texans in their first game of existence in 2002.
