The Chiefs and Cowboys showdown last weekend didn’t live up to its hype. Both high-flying offenses struggled to score points. After the loss, Cowboys’ quarterback Dak Preston spoke candidly about the game.
Prescott told reporters that he was upset that the Cowboys wouldn’t respond to being physically challenged by the Chiefs. Prescott expects that this will change against the Raiders on Thursday.
Prescott stated, “We discussed responding and somebody’s obviously got to pay for that.” “So we have to get out there and be physical in this game.”
Prescott wants Cowboys to be more physically fit in Week 12.
Dak Prescott explained he was “pissed off” because team didn’t respond to being challenged physically in KC. “We talked about responding and somebody’s got to obviously pay for that,” he said. “So we just got to go out there in this game and show how physical we can be."

Dallas could show that it can match Las Vegas in physicality by setting up its ground game early Thursday.
The Cowboys ran the ball only 16 times against Chiefs. This is not enough, considering the efficiency of Tony Pollard and Ezekiel Elliott with each carry.
The Cowboys have recovered from every loss so far this season. We will see if the Cowboys can maintain that trend on Thanksgiving.
The Cowboys-Raiders match kicks off at 4:30 p.m. ET on CBS.
