No matter how the team performs, the Dallas Cowboys, also known as “America’s Team”, always draws plenty of attention from all over the NFL.
Star quarterback Dak Prescott is off to a 6-2 start in the 2021 season. This puts even more pressure on the team.
Prescot responded when asked about the motivation of opposing teams to defeat the Cowboys.
It’s evident. America’s Team. America’s Team. We wouldn’t have it any other way, if you ask me and anyone else in this building.
Dak Prescott when asked about teams being motivated to play the Cowboys: “It’s obvious. America’s Team. You’re the most watched team on TV. … We know we’re gonna get everybody’s best shot. But if you ask me or anybody else in this building, we wouldn’t want it any other way.”

The Cowboys started the year with a 6-1 record and the Cowboys got the Denver Broncos on their side in Week 9. Prescott and his team were held to zero points for the first three quarters. Prescott was then defeated in a blowout 30-16. The Broncos had lost four of their last five games before this game.
Dallas will host the Atlanta Falcons at AT&T Stadium on Sunday. Dak Prescott, looking to get back on track will place the spotlight and accept the responsibility of being the Cowboys’ franchise quarterback.
