Week 15: at Dallas Cowboys
Who would have thought that the Dallas Cowboys with no Tony Romo and a similar defense to last season would be 7-1 at the midway point of the season? If you told me that during the preseason I would have laughed in your face. I knew Ezekiel Elliott was going to be special behind that offensive line but Dak Prescott is a completely different player than he was at Mississippi State. He is still mobile like he was in college but his accuracy and decision-making are incredibly improved since then.
I mean, would have thought that a rookie would have caused fans to want Romo to stay on the bench? That is exactly what Prescott has done. He is a leader and has taken the NFL by storm making headlines the way Carson Wentz has in Philadelphia.
Barring the largest collapse in NFL history the Cowboys are a playoff team. At week 15 in the NFL season this could be a crucial game for the Cowboys if they want a first round bye. They will look to entertain the hometown crowd and blow out the Bucs 34-20. (5-9)
