Cowboys Wishlist: Can TE Dalton Schultz Rise to the Occasion?

Every year, the take the field on Day. It's an amazing tradition and a very enjoyable one. This time, they'll play in a game, as they take on the for the East's first place. With a win today, the Cowboys would control their destiny of getting to play football in January. This feels like a great day in the making.

As every gameday, I hope you enjoy this week's edition of !

Wish #1: Defensive Touchdown

The last couple of weeks, rookie LB has been able to intercept the ball twice. Both times he got room to return the ball for a handful of yards. This time, I wish we get to see him or any other defensive player find the end zone. Whether it's a pick six or a strip sack resulting on a touchdown, it would be awesome to see this unit score.

The has been very impressive all year in every position, despite a few struggling players. It's a good unit, and one that has proven to be able to win football games. The “Hot Boyz” certainly deserve to put up points on the board.

Wish #2: Amari Cooper Beats Josh Norman

has been shadowing receivers the last few games and he'll probably do so against WR today. Cooper continues to justify the first-round pick the Cowboys traded to get him, accounting for the most targets since his arrival to the team.

Norman is one of those players who have made this rival interesting over the last couple of years and with out of the picture, I can't wait to see if a similar rivalry arises between the two. I wish it does.

Warts And All, Dak Prescott Shows Why It's Not So Easy To Move On

Wish #3: Dak Prescott 3-TD Game

has played well the last couple of weeks, including two back-to-back game winning drives versus the Falcons and Eagles. With Cooper on the team and an improved , Prescott continues to prove to be a tough player to move on from. In what should be a big win (we'll talk about that on wish #5), I wish Prescott puts on a three touchdown performance as the Cowboys walk away with the division's first place.

Wish #4: Dalton Schultz Rises to the Occasion

won't see the field versus the Redskins, providing fourth-round rookie with an opportunity to shine. I've been a fan of this pick since April and I truly believe Schultz will be a contributing player down the road.

He's been blocking better and has had a few opportunities as a pass catcher. I hope he takes advantage of the opportunity and has a nice game today. He could earn the starting job with a great performance against Washington.

Wish #5: Double-digit Win

Yeah, it's Thanksgiving and it's a rivalry game. But to be honest, I don't see how this turns out to be a close game. Colt McCoy simply should be outmatched by one of the best defenses in the at the moment, specially considering his is far from perfect.

The Redskins should represent little concern for and company. With the defense keeping Washington on check, the will have a chance to win big like they did against the back in week 6. At the very least, I hope they win by 10. It'd be an amazing way to start Thanksgiving dinners off, right?

Bonus Wish: The last time the Cowboys played the Redskins, drew a flag for a “snap infraction.” I simply wish the refs don't do that again. Please. Just… be cool, okay?
