“I guarantee you it’s going to be a Cowboy crowd, no doubt. … It’s a home game, and we’ll take advantage of the home crowd,” Jones told 105.3 The Fan in Dallas.

Jones touted the franchise’s plans to have a Medal of Honor recipient on hand for the game

“One of the things I want to mention that I’m really excited about is that we have one of the youngest Medal of Honor recipients going to toss the coin for us on Sunday. It’s exciting,” said Jones.

Jones called Nantz “lucky” to be able to sit next to Romo for the match.

“Speaking of the commentators, Jim Nantz is lucky. Granted, we’ve had times when it didn’t go well with him, but in general he’s a great time. That guy sitting next to him , Tony Romo, I just want to be around him. It’s exciting to know that Romo is making this game,” Jones added.

The last time the two teams met in the playoffs was on January 15, 1995.
