Dallas Cowboys are leading the NFC and are on the verge of securing the top spot in their division. Home field advantage is a big thing to have for your team in postseason time, so this next game is pretty important for Dallas. By winning the game in Week 16, they will earn the right to rest their players in the final round of the regular season as the home field advantage would already be theirs.
But if Dak Prescott wants to beat Big Ben Roethlisberger’ record, the Dallas Cowboys need to win both of their last two duels in order to end the season with 14 wins on their record. Why do they need these last two matches?
Well, Ben Roethlisberger of the Pittsburgh Steelers is holding the record for most wins as a rookie quarterback in the NFL Season. He was drafted back in 2004 and led his team to 13 victories that year. Dallas has 12 under Dak Prescott with two games left to play.
Cowboys are favored to win both of those last games, but it’s not going to be a cake walk. Detriot Lions will be visiting them, a squad that still needs to secure their top spot in the NFC North. They will have a lot on the line in that match.
In Week 17, the Eagles will host the Cowboys. Dallas could lose that game due to that being the divisional rivalry duel. Also, Dallas might decide even not play with Prescott in the lineup if they beat the Lions.
We think that Dak will for sure tie Big Ben’s record, but it’s a big question if he can surpass it with two wins in the last couple of rounds.
