    Listen to an version of this article on Bumpers!


    ‘Twas the Night before Kickoff, the season's been flyin'

    Here we are, Christmas Day, about to tame the Lions

    Since this team last felt joy, it sure has been a while

    Yet here we are celebrating an title

    The Cowboys have rookies, of the type you'd never believe

    Dak and Zeke have taken us, to the number one seed

    Coach Garrett is the man, I will continue to say

    A red-haired coaching genius, who takes things day by day

    Get to 13 wins, in this means to an end

    During on

    This is a time for the best, you cannot be meek

    Run, score, and fight, don't forget to feed Zeke

    We've learned a lot of lessons, especially never to settle

    Fight till the end, and jump into a red kettle

    If you need an epic win, one man can answer the call

    His name is Prescott, and he can sure Dak the Halls

    It's now time to begin, some interesting premonitions

    Welcome to a Christmas Edition, of my 5 Bold Predictions

    The Lions Game Is A Culmination Of 9-4

    Randy Gregory, RedskinsWhen the Cowboys welcome the Detroit Football Club on Monday Night Football they'll be doing so with a player that hasn't seen the field in almost a full calendar year – . While the expectations from young Gregory shouldn't be too high – and his status is very ambiguous thanks to the NFL – he's going to play and we should be thankful for that.

    Upon being drafted by , Randy Gregory was given the iconic #94 jersey that once belonged to Legends and . This is a tactic that worked out well with after he slipped the spectacular #88 over his rookie shoulders, recognizing the number and team's legacy.

    The #94 from Gregory will be present, but it's another 9-4 connection that I believe will make an appearance… and .

    Dak is the firmly-anointed starter so that's not shocking, but given the events from around the NFL on Christmas Eve you can sense that Romo might be given one quarter of work potentially in this game. 9-4!

    Byron Jones Starts A Streak Of Interceptions

    Byron JonesLast week the Cowboys secured a victory over the , but a more important achievement was made – ' first career interception!

    “Late Night Ice Cream” – as I have dubbed him – wrapped his hands around an opposing 's pass for the first time ever during a last-second play at the end of the first half. This is something that have been longing for for quite some time, so it was great to see it finally happen.

    Get the spoons ready, because Late Night Ice Cream is starting a streak of consecutive games with an interception. Late Night Ice Cream!

    Every Active Cowboys Running Back Gets At Least 5 Carries

    Darren McFaddenThe find themselves in an interesting predicament that will, as it currently is even in this same article, be discussed a lot – how much should they rest their starters?

    The next game of importance for this football team will come, at the earliest, on Saturday, January 14th. That's quite a ways away. Given that this team has one of the most dynamic players in the league in , it's fair to assume that some tolerance will be made for the notion of resting him.

    Look for and Lance Dunbar – or whoever the other active running backs are – to get some work in an effort to alleviate Zeke's workload. Five carries apiece, Santa!

    Zeke And The Offensive Line Are Compared To Santa And His Reindeer

    If you've made it this far into this then you really deserve one of these – Merry Christmas!

    As it is Christmas season, Christmas magic and decorations and treats and presents are in the air! These presents are so prominent that even Ezekiel Elliott got into the mood when he gave his offensive line ATVs on Friday.

    There's a comparison considering the time of year concerning Zeke and his Offensive Line that's just too easy to make, Zeke is Santa and the linemen are his reindeer. Any seasoned pro in the broadcast booth is going to see that and run (or fly) away with it.

    If we're taking this deeper then is Blitzen, is Dancer, is Comet, Zach Martin is Prancer, and is Donner. You know it's true.

    Don Meredith's Famous “Turn Out The Lights” Is Referenced

    Don MeredithFrom their inception in 1960 through 1968, the Dallas Cowboys boasted one of the best and most iconic figures in their long-standing at the all-important quarterback position – .

    “Dandy” Don was as legendary as they come, and he furthered that legend after his playing career in the broadcast booth. Meredith became a staple on Monday Night Football and developed a signature catchphrase of sorts by singing a Willie Nelson line, “Turn out the lights, the party's over.”

    The Cowboys/Lions game will serve as 2016's Monday Night Football finale – can you believe that?! – and therefore will call for an essence of good-bye. ESPN will still have some playoff coverage, but it won't be the same. The moment is too perfect to not drop Dandy Don's signature line as the MNF season comes to a close.

    Also on Facebook, Tyler Spence says:

    • Byron Jones not only has his 2nd career INT, but it's a pick 6
    • also goes for a 65 yard TD in this one, similar to how he dominated Detroit in the playoff game 2 years ago

    I like the callbacks to the 2014 win over Detroit here! Santa is obviously an Inside The Star reader, so these will undoubtedly come true.

    Merry Christmas from all of us here at Inside The Star to you and yours. Go Cowboys!
