Cowboys' Dak Prescott Vows To Be Even Better After Blowing Out The Falcons

Ernesto Cova

Even though the Dallas Cowboys had a nearly perfect record through the first 9 weeks of the NFL season, some people still thought it was just a fluke.

I mean, it's hard to blame them, as the Cowboys have teased us for years just to eventually fall off a cliff right when it matters the most.

That's why it was so important for them to make a statement after an embarrassing home loss to the Broncos, and they pulled it off by completely dominating the Falcons 43-3.

Prescott Says The Cowboys Need To Be Better

Quarterback Dak Prescott knows that the Cowboys are always in the spotlight, meaning there's no room for error until the end of the season:

“Just each and every week finding a way to get better, be the best version of ourselves, best offense, best defense, play complimentary football,” Prescott said after the game, per ClutchPoints.

Mike McCarthy's team is on a mission and want to silence their doubters once and for all, which is why they continue to take every game as a playoff game.

Dak Says The Cowboys Are Resilient

The star quarterback had a lot of faith in his team's ability to bounce back from a tough loss and lauded his teammates for how they embraced that kind of pressure:

“We’re a resilient team,” Prescott told The Athletic. “A team that is very aware of what we’re capable of. Last week just wasn’t us. And everybody in that locker room knows that. (...) But tonight just shows that when we focus in, take it one play at a time, and our minds are where our feet are, we’re capable of doing some great things.”

The Cowboys Will Stay Aggressive, Says Ezekiel Elliott

The Cowboys have been quite aggressive throughout the season, especially when it comes to going for it on fourth down.

And even though that formula didn't quite work out for them two weeks ago, star running back Ezekiel Elliott reassured that they will continue to live and die by their philosophy and aggressiveness:

“We’re going to play aggressive, that’s our mentality, that’s how we’re going to play football. We play aggressive. On the field, with the call, everything. If you don’t like it, it’s whatever. That’s how we rolling," Elliot said, per Jon Machota.

Mike McCarthy's Motivations Tactics Are Out Of The Box

Head coach Mike McCarthy has clearly made an impact on the locker room after a year full of issues and rumors.

His bizarre motivation tactics are working out perfectly this time but that doesn't make them less hilarious.

For this week's game, the former Packers coach gave the players 'Monkey Butt', an anti-chafing powder one may need after getting your butt kicked.

"Last year, #Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy smashed watermelons. This year, coming off an ugly loss, McCarthy dug into his motivational bag of tricks and pulled out … Monkey Butt," NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported.

As funny as it may be, it definitely worked, so we're looking forward to seeing what he's got left on his bag for next week's matchup with the Chiefs.
