Jerry Jones has been brought to tears three times since buying the Dallas Cowboys in 1989 and recalled those moments because the Houston Texans are coming to town.
That’s because the last time he shed tears over his football team was in 2002 when the Texans won their inaugural game over the Cowboys, 19-10, at Reliant Stadium.
“It was because we had such a base of fans,” Jones said on his KRLD-FM radio show Tuesday morning.
“We’d go down there when they were the Oilers ... and we knew we had a big base. We were big supporters, huge supporters, of Houston getting that franchise back, but that loss killed us. That will always be there for me.”
