The Dallas Cowboys' 2022 season may not have ended the way Jerry Jones would've liked, but there's one moment from the team's playoff run that he's taking great pride in.

Speaking to reporters at the Senior Bowl on Wednesday, Jones explained how special it was for him to see the Cowboys defeat Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in what turned out to be the quarterback's final NFL game.

"I'm proud of that win. I'm gonna hold that Tampa Bay win up just like I did that Herschel Walker ball when we won one game the first year, and that was my prize," Jones said, referring to his first year as Cowboys owner in 1989 when the team finished the season 1-15. "So we're proud of that win - (Brady) has been outstanding."

Dallas eliminated Tampa Bay from the playoffs with a 31-14 victory in the NFC wild-card round. The win marked the first time the Cowboys had ever beat Brady, who announced his retirement Wednesday after 23 seasons.

The Cowboys went on to face the San Francisco 49ers in the divisional round, where they lost 19-12.
