DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) - Despite allowing another 38 points in last night's loss to the Arizona Cardinals, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones hasn't lost faith in defensive coordinator Mike Nolan.

"In general, my thoughts are I like the way we came out defensively. I thought we had a good plan for the skills of Murray and what the Cardinals presented us," Jones said on Shan and RJ on 105.3 The Fan. "These aren't excuses, but his defense has had a very difficult time with field position, where we've gotten the ball early. I don't care what the skill level of a team is when they get up on you they're gonna tee off on you. ... I'm okay with Mike Nolan. I am."

So far this season, the Cowboys defense has allowed a whopping 218 points. That total is tied for the fourth most points allowed by a defense through six games in NFL history.
