Cowboys QB Dak Prescott responds to Eagles LB’s ‘choke’ trash talk
The much-anticipated Week 14 matchup between the Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys got even spicier after Eagles linebacker Kamu Grugier-Hill called the Cowboys a bunch of “chokers” during an interview with local media.
“I mean, look at Dallas’ history,” Grugier-Hill said. “They always choke. So we’ll go down there and make them choke.”
Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott was asked about Grugier-Hill’s inflammatory remarks, and he took quite a nice shot of his own. “Who?” Prescott said of the linebacker, via David Moore of the Dallas Morning News.
Prescott then proceeded to hold back on his own trash talk, and instead dropped some words of wisdom he got from head coach Jason Garrett.
“You know, Coach (Jason) Garrett has a great saying, and I don’t know where he got it from, but winners worry about winning and losers worry about winners,” Prescott said. “We’re focused on ourselves in this locker room about what we need to do to get better in each and every phase of this game to be ready for this week.”
Prescott and the Cowboys have reeled off four wins in a row, a streak which began with a 27-20 win against the Eagles in Philadelphia. Prescott had one of his better passing games of the year as he completed 72 percent of his passes for 270 yards and a touchdown.
The Cowboys are also coming off a huge confidence-boosting win over the New Orleans Saints at home. The Cowboys are an impressive 5-1 at AT&T Stadium this season, and judging by Prescott’s comments, they don’t plan on choking at home against Philly on Sunday.
