Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has backed defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin, reports cbssports

The Cowboys have had major problems in the defensive line and on Monday night, in a 45-28 defeat to the Chicago Bears at the Soldier Field stadium, the defense ceded over 490 yards for the fifth time. 

However, Kiffin has the full backing of Jones as the Cowboys owner is sure that he's the right man for the job. 

When discussing Kiffin, speaking on 105.3, Jones said: "There's nobody I'd rather have.

"To fix what we're doing, there's nobody I'd rather have than [Kiffin] and Rod Marinelli.

"First of all, [Kiffin] knows what's happening more than anyone. If there are adjustments to be made, he's the right man for the job."

The Cowboys will be desperate to put things right after their disappointing display against the Bears. 

In their next fixture they take on the Green Bay Packers at the AT&T Stadium on Sunday December 15 and will be hoping their defense show improvement. 

The Cowboys are still in with a chance of making the playoffs, but will be well aware that they need to secure the victory against the Packers this weekend. 

A win this weekend would certainly give them a fighting chance ahead of their clashes with the Washington Redskins and then the Philadelphia Eagles.
