The Dallas Cowboys showed up and dominated the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. They secured a 33-13 victory and controlled the game from start to finish. Despite this triumph, it’s still difficult to trust the Cowboys. The victory over their rival put them in a three-way tie atop the NFC with San Francisco and Philadelphia, but the 49ers hold the tiebreaker. The Cowboys still have a shot at the No. 1 seed with four games remaining.
The Cowboys have had winning streaks and successful regular seasons during Dak Prescott’s tenure, but the real test will be how they perform in January. There’s talk of Prescott leading the MVP race, but winning the MVP is not enough for the Cowboys’ fan base. They are desperate for a return to the top and expect a Super Bowl victory. Prescott should be motivated to win a Super Bowl to solidify his legacy and prove his worth to Jerry Jones, who has not fully embraced him. Ultimately, leading the Cowboys to a Super Bowl victory is the only thing that will matter for Prescott in Dallas.
