HOUSTON (105.3 The Fan) - Following his team's overtime loss to the Houston Texans on Sunday night, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was questioned once again about the teams lack of talent at wide receiver after watching DeAndre Hopkins torch the Cowboys secondary for 151 yards. 

"I'd love to have No. 1 receivers. You have to get those when the opportunities are there. Hopkins is tremendous. He made the plays out there that made a lot of difference," Jones said.

Both of quarterback Dak Prescott interceptions tonight once again came off of tipped passes from receivers. Prescott now has four interceptions on the year and each one has come off of a dropped pass from one of his wideouts.

"I don't really want to dwell on any aspect of the offensive side of the ball," Jones said when asked about the two interceptions.

Former Cowboys No. 1 receiver Dez Bryant recently expressed his desire to return to the team after he was cut in the offseason. Jones, however, closed the door on Bryant's chances of returning in his weekly interview on 105.3 The Fan Friday. 

Bryant later tweeted out a response to Jones' postgame statement. 

Dallas was led in receiving tonight by tight end Geoff Swaim who had 3 catches for 55 yards.
