Dallas Cowboys: 5 things we need to see after the bye week
4. Dak’s accuracy
These final eight games are big for the quarterback. Cooper is coming to shove his weight around. Of course, we know what Ezekiel Elliott can do with the ball. Now, can QB one carry the team following a long, losing bye week? Essentially, the Redskins are at 5-2 and the Eagles won in London.
With the Cowboys bringing in a big-time player for him, Prescott really has to hit his receivers between the numbers. The spotlight on Dak has never been hotter. Can he drill the ball when it counts? He must get the job done; his future in Dallas depends on it.
5. Will the real 3-4 team please stand up?
Well, the loser of this Monday night match falls to 3-5. The winner gets a leg up and sits at .500. Now, the Cowboys have played close contests in their losing efforts. Following a bye week, I can’t see the Cowboys losing this one. Give me 23-17, Dallas Cowboys.
It’s a close game. But, in the end, the Cowboys breathe life into the 2018 season and march forward.
