Cowboys players under the most pressure Monday night against Tampa Bay

Pressure is always at the forefront when it comes to the NFL . The have a better record and have been the better team all year, but a few players will be under massive pressure against the .

The 12-5 Cowboys will look to end 's perfect 7-0 record against them on Monday night. 

We can talk all we want about and , but here are my top three players under the most pressure when weekend kicks off. 

Dak Prescott

We all understand his turnovers have been a problem this season, but since he has returned from his thumb , the has averaged over 30 points a game. They are first in third-down percentage and third in scoring touchdowns in the

We even saw against Philly that he could overcome a turnover and put together an excellent performance with over 300 yards through the air.

It is hard to judge the Bucs' right now, but they are under .500 for a reason. 

Again we must recognize his turnovers because it might cost the Cowboys if he can't protect the football Monday. If Prescott plays 70% to form, Dallas will win this game. 

Prescott is under the most pressure because of his position and he wears on his helmet, and he needs to beat the G.O.A.T. in this game. 

Micah Parsons

Micah Parson has pressure in this game because he loves using Twitter. He claps back and forth with just about everyone. Honestly, I LOVE it, but he needs to show up Monday against a terrible Tampa

He creates havoc without generating , pressures the QB better than anyone in football, and opens free rushing lanes for others on the

The Cowboys will need to make a play or two.

He has pressure because of how good he is. Great players show up in big games, and Parsons should be able to take advantage of a beat-up Bucs OL. 

Look for Parsons to finish the game with a couple of sacks and a game-changing play. 


That's right. 2.

The wide receiver group as a whole is under a lot of pressure.

I want to see someone besides Lamb step up. I want someone else to create some separation and make a big play like Hilton did against the Eagles. Someone will have to make a big catch in this game, and I don't know who it will be. 

I have a feeling Gallup is going to have a big day. He hasn't looked right the last few weeks, but it has that feeling. 

Prescott is under the most pressure at the end of the day, followed by Parsons due to his Twitter words, followed by the guys under Lamb. Due to his recent play, Prescott and the others need to show up consistently. 

The last two times the Cowboys have lost, they responded with 40 points on the scoreboard. Look for it to happen again.

Go, ‘Boys.

Gallup big disappointment this season. I’d say Biadasz & McGovern to handle Vita.


Hello Shane! First rate and spot-on as usual. Got a lot of bad feelings about the game Monday night. Hope I’m wrong and we can deliver the knock out blow to a bad Tampa Bay Bucs team!!!


Players and staff under pressure…everyone – it’s a TEAM sport. That said, it’s a QB league…Dak + Moore are the most glaring players/coaches under pressure to achieve success. Oddly, I’m not worried about our defense against the GOAT b/c I trust Quinn to make the necessary changes. And I feel the ST unit bounces back from the Commanders game, due to Fassel’s influence/experience. I have least faith in the O, even despite the gaudy #’s Dak put up since his return. His legacy will be sealed with the post-season and so far 6 seasons in, he’s failed.
