On Wednesday the trash talk for Sunday’s game between the Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles got upped a level thanks to Eagles linebacker Kamu Grugier-Hill. Kamu said the Cowboys “always” choke.
Thursday the Cowboys practiced for the second time this week and after that met with the local media. Obviously this subject came up with several Cowboys players (for what it’s worth Jason Garrett dismissed it during his morning press conference).
Dak Prescott was asked for his thoughts on Kamu’s words and responded like many people when they first heard what was said. Who?

Dak Prescott was asked about the Eagles LB saying Dallas has a history of choking and they'll make them choke again.— Jon Machota (@jonmachota) December 6, 2018
After being told again, Dak: "Coach Garrett has a great saying...winners worry about winning and losers worry about winners." https://t.co/FBZhwTRiL8
This is likely going to upset a few Eagles fans, but this is the way rivalries work. People talk, people chirp, and then the football game itself gives one team the right to brag. Football is awesome like that.
We’re still several days away from kickoff between the Cowboys and Eagles but you can rest assured that the hype will continue to build. This game means a lot, and it’s going to mean even more to whoever wins it.
