‘Grab Your Nuts!’ Again: Dak Prescott Up & Down; Dallas Cowboys Trail Eagles 20-17 at Halftime
ARLINGTON – It was just a few weeks ago that the Dallas Cowboys and quarterback Dak Prescott were trailing a weak opponent and required a 98-yard drive in order to win the game.
Prescott’s late-game play was the reason Houston won. His words were “Grab your f g nuts” and he said, “Grab your F G nuts and win a game!” Grab your f *****g nuts, and win a f ****** match! He continued to bark at his teammates, which is now considered a reason for the “ballsy” victory.
The Cowboys won’t be playing the one-win Texans on Christmas Eve. They’re playing the one-loss The Philadelphia Eagles are the NFC East-leading team.
It’s “Grab your *****g nuts!” It’s time to do it all again.
Dallas is two games behind the Eagles in the division championship race. This is a long shot, as there are only two games remaining. The Eagles are still without Jalen Hurts (injured MVP candidate), and that would help level the playing field.
Sometimes it takes a while before things “figure out.”
Prescott spent the first part of this game in the middle a few spectacular and extraordinary – but also extremely oddball – plays. Prescott’s interception problem (eight in five of the last five games) still exists. In the early going, he tossed an intercept right into the hands D-lineman Josh Sweat. Sweat bullied through Dak’s tackle attempt for a score.
The double-pass attempt involving KaVontae Turpin wasn’t too bad either
Prescott and the Cowboys put together a march that was capped off by an Ezekiel Elliott touchdown (that’s eight games in a row with a score for him), while CeeDee lamb shook free for a 36 yard touchdown throw from Dak.
And at halftime? The Cowboys are close to the Eagles. It’s time to grab your f g nuts! Time for at least two more quarters.
