DALLAS-FT. WORTH — The Cowboys have a lot to be thankful for right now, and today they gave back, serving Thanksgiving lunch at the Salvation Army in Dallas and Fort Worth.
“To see these fans and all of them have such challenging times in their lives and to put a smile on their face and know that they’re pulling for us, means a lot for us and hopefully we can make a difference in their lives,” said Jason Witten at the Dallas event.
‘The time that you have, it’s important to give to others, kind of what I’m about is relationships and making bonds with other people giving your time and I hope everyone does that,” Dak Prescott told reporters at the Ft. Worth branch of the Salvation Army.
The Boys were welcomed as heroes after knocking off Pittsburgh in thrilling fashion, and the whole team is feeling very good after the eighth straight win.
“Nobody blinked, nobody flinched, all believing in each other to go get it done, it was special,” Prescott said.
How special? Well, the eight consecutive wins tie the franchise record for most ever. The last time Dallas won this many in a row was 1977! Back then Jimmy Carter was president, Star Wars had just come out and every kid wanted the newly released Atari 2600 for Christmas.
Oh yeah, and that ’77 Cowboys team went on to win Super Bowl XII!
And make no mistake, while no one on this team will say the words “Super Bowl”, they all know what the goal is:
“I think this team sees this opportunity right now and knows, ‘hey we’ve got to go play this way every week,’” Witten said.
Well if the next seven weeks are anything like the last nine, then Cowboys fans will have even more thanks to give than they do now!
