Thursday Another Team Win For Jason Garrett, Dallas Cowboys

Three weeks ago the were left for dead. At 3-5 and with what looked to be a daunting schedule ahead of them, seemingly no one believed that the Cowboys had any chance of playing meaningful December and January football.

After all, they had just gotten embarrassed by the at home. Coming off a bye, nonetheless.

Is the right for the Cowboys? Is worth the extension he'll likely receive from the ? Did the Cowboys give up too much to attain ? And, of course, is it time to move on from and his staff?

Yesterday, for the third straight week, the Cowboys were victorious, fighting for all four quarters with their backs against the wall and a loss all-but-ending their . Just like their head coach preaches every week, the Cowboys have taken it day-by-day and now find themselves in first place of the East.

This now has cornerstone type players at all three levels, led by young studs in , , and . Once again they held their opponents down for much of the afternoon on Thursday, allowing for their to hang around until they finally found their footing.

And once the offense, particularly the to Amari Cooper got going, we saw what the peak of the powers can look like. And, boy, what a peak that can be when things are going correctly.

Thursday's win was what the plan to win with Dak Prescott is supposed to look like. Keeping the opponent out of the end zone, running the football effectively, and making timely and efficient plays through the air. It's rare that Prescott and this offense will successfully stretch the field vertically, but if they can avoid costly turnovers and remain efficient in their passing game, the offense can be effective.

For all of the criticism, and sometimes deservedly so, which Jason Garrett receives he deserves some real praise for how Dallas has fought these past three weeks.

Of course, many of the questions I have mentioned still exist. No three game sample size will ever justify what the decision should be about Prescott, or whether Jason Garrett or should have jobs moving forward. But since that home loss to the Titans the Dallas Cowboys have come together the way which the front office had hoped they would.

They are playing their brand of football, and doing so very effectively. There is a lot of football left to be played in 2018, but considering how the first 8 games of the season went, we should all be thrilled that the Cowboys control their own playoff destiny heading into December.
