"Right now he's obviously going through a little bit of a tough stretch in terms of the turnovers," Jones, the Cowboys' director of player personnel, said Monday on KRLD-FM, via The Dallas Morning News. "He knows better than anybody that we can't have those.

"I think it would've been real easy for a quarterback who doesn't have a strong mental makeup to really struggle, but he brought our team back and gave us a lot of opportunities there at the end of the game to win the game. I think in the long haul Tony's going to be just fine."

Jones added that the Cowboys need "to do a better job of giving (Romo) the correct read and that type of thing."
