The Dallas Cowboys can reach the playoffs only if they win all four remaining games.
The other things need to go to their favor, but we will not talk about calculations and “what if” types of situations. Their first must-win game is against the rivalry New York Giants, a team they beat once in the season opener. Will they be able to come up with another victory, no without Ezekiel Elliott? These five players you need to pay attention to.
It is not surprising that Prescott’s performance dropped without Elliott to support him in the backfield. Prescott didn’t have a passing touchdown until last week against the Washington Redskins, plus he turned the ball over eight times in total in those four games. He needs to get going, and this can be his game.
Alfred Morris started running well against Washington as well, and he had 127 yards. Can Morris do it once again? His last back-to-back 100-yard games were back in 2013, but Dallas will have to trust him with the ball.
Bryant has the most touchdowns (72) in the history of Dallas Cowboys, and he has just passed legendary Bullet Bob Hayes on the list. However, the Cowboys star has struggled, even though he is the first target. The good news is that Janoris Jenkins is out and he will not guard Bryant.
Lawrence leads the league with 13.5 sacks and just like the rest of the team, he slightly cooled off in the three consecutive losses, but he managed to sack Kirk Cousins twice and force a fumble. He will step up against the struggling Giants defense.
This year, we have seen how valuable Sean Lee is to the Cowboys. He was always an excellent player, but he transformed poor Cowboys defense into a solid one. Without him, winning is hard. He is nicknamed General Lee, and you can imagine why. He returns on Sunday, and hopefully, we will see him hungry for a win!
