Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones urges his side to take more risks when defending.

Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones has called for his side to take more risks when defending in an attempt to stem the tide of points being scored against them.

Only six teams have conceded more points in the NFL this season than Dallas, with their latest outing seeing them ship another 45 in a heavy defeat to the Chicago Bears last night.

"Basically, we will have to make some adjustments in what we are doing defensively. What that usually means is taking more risks on defense," Jones told The AP.

"But if you're going to have the kind of match like we had tonight or certainly in New Orleans you have to take some risks. We have to double up and I'm sure that will be part of the plan on defense; more risks."

The Cowboys are currently second in the NFC East, one win behind the Philadelphia Eagles with three games left to play.
