Through the first nine games, the Dallas Cowboys have exceeded expectations as most counted them out.

This was due to the 6-10 historically bad team from last season filled with injuries and poor performances.

Dallas currently sits at 7-2 (first place in NFC East) and is one of the better teams in the NFL.

They play three games over the next 12 days, which will be a tall task, but adversity is the name of the game.

Here are a few reasons why Dallas can go 3-0 over the next three games.

Dak Prescott’s leadership and playmaking ability

Dak Prescott has been nothing short of great since returning from his season-ending ankle injury in 2020.

He is on an MVP level as he currently has 2,341 passing yards, 20 touchdowns, and only five ints.

Not only does he has the stats, but he is also winning games and has the Cowboys close to locking up a playoff spot.

He will be going toe-to-toe with two of the top 15 QB’s in Patrick Mahomes and Derek Carr over the next three games.

This will be another test to see if Prescott can lead his team to victory against both teams.

Dak has dealt with adversity all of his life and has defeated those obstacles.

With his command of the offense, Dallas has become a team to be reckoned with.

Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pollard steal the show

Over the past few weeks, we have not seen the running attack of Zeke and Pollard be effective.

Elliott is 4th in both rushing yards and touchdowns (663 yds, seven touchdowns) even though his volume has been ow recently.

Pollard on the only hand has not scored a touchdown since week two against the LA Chargers.

This is in large part due to the defensive coordinator’s game planning to stop the duo from wearing down their respective teams.

Instead, they rather have Prescott use his arm to beat them rather than chew up the clock by running.

With the cold weather games coming up, the ground attack will be a great way to steal one in Arrowhead Stadium.

For Dallas to continue their dominance on offense Elliott and Pollard need to provide that spark as they did early during the season.

Ceedee’s TD’s

Recently, Ceedee Lamb has been coming into his own as he has put up 223 receiving yards and three touchdowns.

He has been Prescott’s number one target as the two have been terrorizing opposing defenses.

With Gallup back in the lineup, Lamb will be primarily in the slot and will face a team’s #3 cornerback.

The Chiefs defense has underperformed most of the season, so look for Lamb to find holes in the zone.

Lamb has been everything the Cowboys hoped for when he fell right into their lap in the 2020 draft.

As long as he and Dak can put on performances over the next three weeks, like against Atlanta, Dallas will be 10-2 by early December.
