Cowboys credit Jason Garrett’s ‘unbelievable’ speech for setting the tone for win vs. Rams

On Saturday night, Garrett told Cowboys players the story about him playing baseball and it resonated with them.

What took place on the field Sunday against the Rams was what mattered for the Cowboys. But several players pointed to the speech head coach Jason Garrett delivered at the team hotel on Saturday night as setting the tone.

“He gave us the story about him playing baseball and what it means to be a team and about having each other’s backs,’’ quarterback Dak Prescott said. “Saying no matter what happens, I got you. I’ll pick you up.

“That’s what we did tonight throughout adversity and success. A bunch of guys voiced it, looked at each other and said, ‘I got you. I’m going to pick you up.’’

Linebacker Sean Lee also credited Garrett’s words.
