The Dallas Cowboys have outperformed expectations in nine of their first nine games.
This was due to the historically poor 6-10 team that last season, which was filled with injuries and poor performances.
Dallas is currently at 7-2, which places them in first place in NFC East. They are one of the best teams in the NFL.
Over the next 12 days they will play three games. This is a difficult task but adversity will be the name of their game.
These are just a few of the reasons Dallas can win the next three games.
Dak Prescott’s remarkable recovery from the season-ending ankle injury that ended his season in 2020 has been nothing short.
He is an MVP player with 2,341 passing yards and 20 touchdowns.
He not only has the stats but he is also winning games, which has the Cowboys very close to securing a playoff spot.
Over the next three games, he will be competing with Derek Carr and Patrick Mahomes, two of the top 15 quarterbacks.
This will be a second test to see Prescott’s ability to lead his team against both teams.
Dak has overcome adversity throughout his entire life.
Dallas is a formidable team because of his leadership of the offense.
Tony Pollard and Ezekiel Elliott steal the show
We have not seen Zeke or Pollard’s running attack be successful in the last few weeks.
Elliott ranks 4th in both rushing yards (663 yards, seven touchdowns), even though his volume is low.
Pollard, on the other hand, hasn’t scored a touchdown against the LA Chargers since week 2.
This is due in large part to the game planning of the defensive coordinator to stop them from wearing down their respective team.
They prefer Prescott to use his arm against them, rather than running around the clock.
The ground attack is a great way for Arrowhead Stadium to steal one of the cold weather games.
Dallas must continue to be a dominant offense team, and Elliott and Pollard have to give that spark they showed earlier in the season.
Ceedee Lamb is showing signs of his potential, with 223 receiving yards and 3 touchdowns.
As the two terrorize opposing defenses, he has been Prescott’s number one target.
Lamb will play in the slot with Gallup back and will face the team’s #3 cornerback.
The Chiefs defense has been poor for most of the season. Lamb will be looking to fill in those gaps.
Lamb was everything Cowboys could have hoped for in 2020’s draft.
Dallas will be 10-2 if he and Dak put on shows over the next three week, as against Atlanta.
