NORTH TEXAS — How good of a season are the Dallas Cowboys having?
While sitting at home doing nothing on a Sunday, they became the first NFL team to lock up a playoff spot!
“I’m excited. There’s a lot more football left. We’re going to be playing for a long time,” said Cowboys’ quarterback Dak Prescott.
The ‘Boys have their division rival Redskins to thank. When Washington lost to Arizona, the Cowboys mathematically punched their ticket to the postseason.
You can scratch that off their Christmas wish list.
The Cowboys can lock up the NFC East with a win this Sunday night at New York.
“We acknowledge what we’ve done up to this point, and how we had the opportunity, but we gotta move forward in how we play. Everything we want is in front of us. You can’t lose your edge, you can’t lose your approach and how you’re going about it,” said tight end Jason Witton.
Perhaps, playing Santa’s helpers will help get on Saint Nick’s good side and continue their success.
The boys went out to children’s hospitals around the DFW metroplex to spread the joy to some deserving kids.
“Just to put a smile on these kids’ faces who go through so much, just this little bit mean a lot. It’s great for me, and I hope they got a lot out of it,” said Prescott.
“The resiliency of those young kids in the midst of these challenging times,” Witten added. “It’s a great opportunity for us to be able to put a smile on their faces and allow them to look behind that for a few brief moments.”
