The Dallas Cowboys have legitimate hopes of a deep postseason run.
With New Years Eve festivities on the horizon and another spike in positive COVID-19 testing, there could be problems during the last few weeks of the NFL Season.
Cowboys tight end Dalton Schultz addressed this issue and sent a clear message to his team.
“Make smart decisions. Don’t go out and do stupid s***,” he said during a press conference on Wednesday, per NFL insider Ed Werder.
With New Year’s Eve and the postseason approaching, #Cowboys TE Dalton Schultz was asked about COVID-19 prevention recommendations: "Make smart decisions. Don’t go out and do stupid s***."

Dak Prescott has made Schultz a reliable target in the passing game. The former fourth-round selection has caught 16 passes for 149 yards and two touchdowns in the past two games.
The Cowboys, like every other team in the league have had to deal with COVID-19 issues over the past few weeks. After testing positive for the virus last Wednesday, defensive tackle Trysten Hill was unable to play against the Washington Football Team and cornerback Jourdan Lee missed Sunday’s victory.
The Cowboys are now 11-4 for the year and have won their first NFC East title in 2018. The Dallas team will be hoping for a successful postseason run with matchups against Philadelphia Eagles and Arizona Cardinals.
