The Cowboys win over the Jaguars can propel them to win the NFC East. Stop laughing I’m serious. What we witnessed yesterday was a Cowboys team that played to it’s strengths and minimized their mistakes. Dak Prescott was throwing on the move and running the ball. Ezekiel Elliot ran with authority; the defense which is starting to jell made tackles.
In the interest of transparency you need to know that I am a former Cowboys fan. I root for the Saints now. I’ve watched too many bad games, suffered through too many disappointing seasons. But I digress. When I was eight or nine years old I heard a sermon that has stuck with me all my life, ‘Use what you got’.
Sometimes in life and in sports you have to use the talent and tools that you have at your disposal to achieve your goal. The key is to keep doing it, stick to a plan, a process and your vision. Pretty soon your talent improves and your tools become enhanced. It’s in that journey that you find your character, you develop your faith.
Now, I’m not guaranteeing that the Cowboys will win East, the Eagles are the Champs for a reason the and Redskins have an opportunity to take a step forward. What I’m simply saying is that the Cowboys can learn from the win over the Jags and build momentum from it.
