Dak Prescott, the Cowboys quarterback might have put himself in a losing position. There is apparently a constant bet within the locker room about which team will do better on offense or defense.
It is very simple: defense wins with takeaways, offense wins with touchdowns.
Prescott was reminded by DeMarcus Lawrence, defensive end, of their Saturday bet before their Week 15 showdown against the New York Giants. And sure enough, it was the defense that delivered once again . Prescott acknowledged this, noting how Lawrence and Co. ” kick our ass.”
“They obviously won this one. …They’re on top right now …” the Cowboys signal-caller said. per Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News.
That is one way we can motivate each other. We don’t have all the details, but we can only hope that the two sides continue to keep the momentum going.
The Cowboys’ defense caused four turnovers against Giants while Dak Prescott and his offense had only two touchdowns-one passing, one rushing. The defense is likely to win the bet, judging by how it looks.
The Cowboys’ defense already has four takeaways in Week 15, which is a significant accomplishment considering the offensive’s ups and downs.
While it remains to be seen whether Prescott will be able to bounce back in the remaining two games of the campaign with his defense motivated, he should be ready for anything.
