Dallas Cowboys Head Coach Bill Parcells
"At the end of the day the penalties did us in. We had our chance to win the game right there, we just had to execute one play and we didn't do it. It's a heartbreaker."
"It's a really tough pill to swallow because after closing all that distance to get a shot at winning and then have it just reverse itself, its very disheartening."
On the blocked field goal:
"It was a bad mistake."
On the momentum turning point:
"The momentum turning point was that last play of the game. We came back, had a chance to win with a reasonable field goal, and it went to the wire." "I thought my players fought hard, but it's very disappointing to lose like we lost."
On the penalties:
"We're just terrible at that area."
On how the game ended:
"The blocked field goal and then a return and giving them a chance to win in regulation; that's the play that turned the game. Everything else, we're in position to win it with seven seconds to go, all we had to do was kick the field goal. So give the credit; they played pretty hard too.
"We had a 7 point lead in the second half and you just do what you can to move it up to fourteen so you don't have something like this happen."
On the Cowboys struggle to close out games this year:
"We beat ourselves. That's been the thing all year and today was no different. It's really frustrating because we have opportunities to do things. I didn't get the job done just like other people. I got to go back and watch film to see what I can do better to help this team win."
On the deep pass that Terrell Owens dropped in the second half:
"It was a good play. He got behind the coverage but that's going to happen once and awhile."
On his thoughts on his performance today:
"I don't feel good. I'm not out here to put up any kind of numbers. I'm here to help this team win and that's what I was trying to help accomplish today. We didn't do that so this leaves a bad taste in my mouth."
On the Cowboys failure to keep the lead late in the game:
"We had a 7 point lead in the second half and we squandered it. It's disappointing and frustrating that we don't get the job done when we have those opportunities."
On the difficulty of winning in the NFL:
"This league is very hard week to week if you are going to be bouncing up and down. We will come back from this but it's just frustrating we didn't get this one today."
Jason Witten on the potential game-winning field goal that was blocked:
"It's a roller coaster there. You have the most accurate kicker in the history of the game with a 35 or 40 yarder and you think you have the game won. After the ball it was just devastating for us. This team .500 at the halfway mark, we didn't expect that."
On the large amount of penalties the Cowboys committed today:
"It was loud but that's not an excuse. They have a good crowd there but we have to be more disciplined."
