QB Dak Prescott Confident Cowboys Can Right The Ship Sunday

is a warrior.

The Cowboys starting has spent his entire NFL career proving doubters wrong. From fourth round compensatory pick to quarterback and the leader of , Prescott has come a long way in just four years. And he hasn't gotten here by giving up nor giving in.

This week, to put it lightly, Prescott's Cowboys are in a tough spot. Having lost three straight games the Cowboys have fallen back to earth quickly, and now sit tied for first place in their division with this week's opponent, the . They're also only a game up of the 2-4 , who are favored at home against the Cardinals this very Sunday.

Dallas has to have this one at home. And despite the team's recent struggles, Dak Prescott remains confident that his bunch can get it done.

“We're right there,” Prescott told the Dallas media Thursday, “We’re a good team that hasn’t been getting it done.”

Prescott certainly isn't incorrect in his evaluation. He and this were flying high the first three weeks, and although they've taken a step back in recent games they still sit 2nd in offensive DVOA this season.

They have gotten off to slow starts in each of their last two losses, however, scoring just 9 points over their last 4 first half quarters. This first half output is unacceptable, but Prescott remains confident that the Cowboys are going to get things right on Sunday.

The biggest factor holding the Cowboys back? According to Prescott, it's themselves. Dak also told the media that the offense just needs to “get out of our own way,” referring to the , , and general mistakes this team has made in seemingly every key moment during this losing streak.

Luckily for Dak Prescott, he should be getting some reinforcements to protect him from the Eagles fearsome front. Both and Tryon Smith have been active at practice this week, and even remains optimistic despite not practicing yet since his quad .

It feels like Cooper will likely be out on Sunday, but increasing their help across the will be a massive boost for this offense.

Still, in the end, it's the Cowboys which needs to step up and play better than they have on Sunday. and the Eagles offense have been strong in recent weeks, and they are looking to take over first place in the East in primetime.
