The Cowboys, losers of two consecutive, have to straighten the Thanksgiving Day of the Ships against the Chargers if they want to keep their playoff aspirations a reality. And no Cowboy understands it better than 15-year veteran Jason Witten.
The tight end called a meeting with the offensive earlier this week to discuss its unfortunate performance in the last two weeks. In 23 combined units against the Eagles and the Falcons, Dallas (5-5) has scored just one touchdown and has produced a measly 16 points.
"It was a good visit," Witten said of the meeting (through Star-Telegram.com). "I think our guys understand what the badignment is and where we are in the season … Look, we've seen what we're capable of doing … In this offense, we know we have the right guys, the right players and the right coaches. the confidence that comes from that, you know, you just have to play better. "
Dak Prescott did not use the absence of Ezekiel Elliott and Tyron Smith as an excuse on Sunday after a 37-9 loss to the Eagles. He will recover Smith against San Diego, but he still plans to be accountable for the performance of the team.
"For me, as players, we have to run better, we have to make the boys get lost sometimes, one by one." We have to make the boys miss, sometimes they come out of the pocket instead of staying out of the limits, I hope I try to make sure that security ignores and tries to score, "he said.
The kick-off is scheduled for 4:30 pm ET (CBS) at the AT & T stadium.
