The Dallas Cowboys suffered an embarrassing setback this weekend against the rival San Francisco 49ers, their largest margin of defeat since the 2013 season.

But if you think that team owner and general manager Jerry Jones is going to start criticizing quarterback Dak Prescott over his performance, you'd be mistaken. 

"Dak Prescott is a quarterback that can get us to the Super Bowl," Jones said on Tuesday during his weekly call to 105.3 The Fan. "That's the way that's gonna be. We have other quarterbacks on that roster, and players that certainly (are capable) if something should happen to Dak. But I want to be real clear: Dak is very capable of taking this team where we want it to go."

Jones isn't sounding the alarm after the disappointing Week 5 loss, as the Cowboys are still one game above the .500 mark with plenty of time left to go in the season. 

"I'm not panicked, but the gap is -- when something tells you what it is, don't try to dream that it's something else," Jones said. "What I'm trying to say is we can do better than what we did out there Sunday night. That's a given, we can do better, we have the potential to do better. We have the preparation to do better, we didn't do it at all, to be trite about it, Sunday night.

"Do we have the quarterback? Let me be very affirmative, I completely believe that we have the quarterback that can take us where we want to go. Do we have the coaching staff on both sides of the ball, we certainly do. Did Sunday reflect that? No."

The Cowboys are going to be taking on the Los Angeles Chargers on Monday night before returning home to face the Los Angeles Rams at AT&T Stadium.
