The Dallas Cowboys were beaten by the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday. Trevor Lawrence and his team won during overtime. The loss also came after the Cowboys scored a too-close-for-comfort win over the Houston Texans in Week 14. Dak Prescott, Dallas’ quarterback, said that the defeat by the Jaguars was a wake-up call to his team to make sure they don’t make more mistakes in the playoffs.

“This is about momentum right now heading into the postseason,” quarterback Dak Prescott said. “Sure, we lost, but there was a lot of good in this game too, so it’s about just continuing to push forward and understanding the men that we have in this locker room and understanding what we’ve done up to this point and the foundation that we’ve laid and just continue to try and grow and get out of these errors. “Whether it’s my interceptions or whatever it may be, eliminate the bad, build on the good and create momentum heading into the postseason.”
Prescott will be the first to point out that change must start with his play. Both Cowboys’ turnovers in the Jaguars game were due to the interception Prescott threw. None was more significant than the one that Jacksonville safety Rayshawn Johnson returned for the game-winning touchdown in overtime. Jenkins was also responsible for another Prescott interception.
The Cowboys are in a good position to secure a playoff berth with a record of 10-4.
