ARLINGTON, TX — The Cowboys fought their way to their tenth straight win in the annual Turkey Day classic, taking down the Redskins 31-26.
“10-1 feels great, you know?” Ezekiel Elliott said. “We’re on a roll, we’ve got a lot of momentum, we’re playing good ball and we’re just focused on building on this and becoming a better team every week.”
“I’ve got tons of confidence in myself, this team, this coaching staff, never go into a game thinking we’re going to lose,” said Dak Prescott. “It’s always what do we have to do to win and I feel like that’s how this team thinks.”
The game was a slugfest with Washington never going away, with the battle highlighted between a war of words and shoves between Dez Bryant and Redskins’ corner, Josh Norman.
“I didn’t make it personal, he made it personal,” Dez said after the win, before going on to add: “I honestly feel like the guy is extremely soft, I think he’s just a bunch of talk… but on another note we got after that ass, hell of a win, it feels good.”
The win has the Boys firmly entrenched atop the NFC East, but the schedule stays tough the rest of the way with every remaining game being against a playoff contender. So while there’s a lot to be thankful for, there’s still a long road ahead!
