Despite not having much to play for Saturday against the Philadelphia Eagles , the Dallas Cowboys will not rest its starters.
Rex Ryan, former Head Coach, shared his thoughts about the Cowboys’ game against Dak Prescott. Some people call it a “meaningless” game.
Ryan made it very clear that Dallas needs to keep Prescott protected. If the star quarterback gets hurt right before the playoffs, he believes it’ll be a fireable offense for Mike McCarthy.
“If you get Dak Prescott hurt, you’re gonna get fired today,” Ryan said. “You won’t even get a flight home. You will get fired. So you better make sure you’re handling your job.”

Prescott has been criticized for his play in recent weeks, but he assured reporters that he is seeing the field perfectly.
“I feel like I’m seeing it fine,” Prescott said this week. “I don’t know if y’all differ. It doesn’t really matter to me. We’re continuing to get better and work, and that’s the simple fact of it.”
Prescott might use tonight’s match against the Eagles to gain momentum for the playoffs.
