Dak Prescott is done with giving word Olympics to reporters about the Dallas Cowboys struggles over the past few weeks.
Sitting at 6-6 following a Thanksgiving loss to the Buffalo Bills, the team is now seated at 6-6 after starting the year at 3-0, but they still control their own playoff destiny since the Philadelphia Eagles have been quite horrible themselves.
Members of the roster have reiterated that they need to perform better on each side of the ball, but quarterback Dak Prescott is done talking.
“Talk is cheap, right,” Prescott said to reporters on Monday, per The Dallas Morning News. “We’ve talked a lot. We’ve talked a bunch and got ourselves right to where we are. In a moment like this, I say, ‘hell with the talking. I’m going to do more. I’m going to work harder.’”
“If you’re a young guy looking for somebody to figure it out, how to do it, yeah, look at me and some of these other guys because that’s exactly what we’re doing,” Prescott continued. “Putting our head down, focusing, and doubling down on ourselves.”
Defensive end Michael Bennett was reported to have yelled at his teammates after the Bills loss, however, it was later revealed he was actually delivering a fiery speech to help his team get back on the right track.
The Cowboys have just four games remaining on their schedule to secure their spot in the postseason. Given the fact that they have been unable to beat a team with a record above .500, it will likely mean an early exit even if they do make it.
