The day has come. The day for football, food, and family has arrived. Accordingly, what better way to celebrate it than with comparisons of Dallas Cowboys players to your favorite Thanksgiving foods?

These are the non-negotiable, best choices. Don’t bother arguing with them.

Dak Prescott: Ham

A staple. Rarely disappoints. Prescott and the ham on Thanksgiving are both very consistent and play a vital role. Not to mention, ham may be the first food you think of for Thanksgiving. Dak is definitely the headliner for the Cowboys nowadays.

Ezekiel Elliott: Mac and Cheese

Zeke and the cheesy pasta have great variety to them. There are a few ways to make a really solid macaroni and cheese, and Elliott provides value in a few ways for the Cowboys. Of course, he is a great runner, but his production in the passing game as a receiver and blocker cannot be overlooked.

Trevon Diggs: Stuffing

This one takes some explaining. Stuffing is either loved or despised, and there is no in-between. It is a risky part of the meal. The Cowboys’ young cornerback is a risk-taker as well. Those risks either pay off or go downhill rather quickly.

Zach Martin: Apple Pie

Reliable. Lovable. Timely. All of the above describe both a great pie and a future Hall of Fame offensive lineman.

Dalton Schultz: Sweet Potato Casserole

Underrated and overlooked? Schultz and a well-made sweet potato casserole have that in common. The casserole is usually not mentioned as one of the main sides for the holiday, but it can make a big difference. Schultz plays that role for the Cowboys as a receiver and blocker from the tight end position.
