Watt were given to the quarterback earlier than he may just make the throw. Had the Cowboys transformed that play, they most likely would were in place to kick a successful box purpose.
“That’s why you can’t let outside of here seep into your head or get into your head,” Prescott stated. “You watch the game, you don’t necessarily see that. So you just hear negative all this. We’re this close.”
As the Cowboys stay operating to get there, Garrett has no considerations a couple of divided locker room.
“We’ve got the right kind of guys on our team who go about it the right way every day,” Garrett stated. “I have the good fortune of spending time with them at meetings, walkthroughs and practice every day. They absolutely handle themselves like pros who support each other.”
Elliott used a couple of expletives to check out to illustrate how he believes his teammates are responsible.
