This four-game stretch for Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys will determine both the team's playoff seeding and where Prescott will finish in the MVP race. Prescott soared to first in MVP odds following Sunday's win against the Eagles and now faces another difficult matchup in Buffalo against the Josh Allen-led Bills.

The Bills are a sleeping giant in an otherwise lousy AFC. They've had some inexplicable losses, which would explain their 7-6 record, but they led the Eagles wire-to-wire in Philly before losing in overtime and are less than a week removed from beating Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs in Arrowhead.

Long story short, Prescott out-dueling Josh Allen in Buffalo with the Cowboys facing a must-win scenario to keep their NFC East hopes alive would go down as the best regular season victory of the Dak era. Period.

Fully aware of the stakes, Prescott remained grounded after the Eagles win.

That said, Prescott will be playing with a chip on his shoulder this Sunday. He surely hasn't forgotten Bills cornerback Tre'Davious White mocking his famous pregame hip dance warmup as Buffalo handed Dallas a Thanksgiving loss in 2019.

Dak Prescott can get revenge after Bills mocked Cowboys QB in 2019

Who could forget? This image has been burned into Cowboys fans' minds. There's never been a better time for a Prescott revenge game.

The Cowboys lost 26-15 and were outscored 26-0 over a 50-minute stretch before a garbage time touchdown in the fourth quarter. Though he threw for 355 yards and two TDs, Prescott had a big hand in the defeat, as he threw an interception, lost a fumble and fumbled again on fourth down to put Buffalo in the driver's seat.

The loss dropped the spiraling Cowboys to 6-6 and foreshadowed the end of Jason Garrett's 10-year run as head coach. Garrett was let go after the team finished 8-8 and ceded the NFC East to the 9-7 Eagles and Dallas hired Mike McCarthy as his replacement in the offseason. The rest is history.

White's mockery of Prescott was clever in the moment, but Dak and the Cowboys undoubtedly kept the receipts.

It's not showed in the above video, but the Bills also mocked Ezekiel Elliott's "feed me" celebration in the game. You can understand why Cowboys fans have unfinished business with the Bills. We can only hope Prescott feels the same.

Given the moxie and confidence Prescott is playing with this season, our guess is he's had this game circled on the calendar from the moment the 2023 schedule was released.
