The Cowboys had not gained a postseason sport since Prescott and Elliott arrived in Dallas after the 2016 NFL Draft, however the staff’s star performers stepped on top of things on Saturday in a 24-22 triumph.
Quarterback Prescott threw one landing and decisively rushed for one more within the fourth quarter, whereas operating again Elliott had 26 carries for 137 yards in addition to a landing.
On the sphere within the moments after sealing victory, Elliott instructed FOX of Prescott’s contribution: “He is a grown-a** man. That is what it’s. That is how he performed at present.”
And Prescott’s evaluation of Elliott was equally glowing, including: “He is a hell of a participant and he all the time desires the ball.
“If you’ve bought a participant like this – the very best man within the NFL with the ball in his palms – we attempt to do as a lot as we will to present him the ball. I am grateful to have him, my finest buddy.”
The admiration then continued because the pair analyzed the sport with reporters.
“[Prescott was] legendary,” Elliott mentioned. “He got here on the market and made performs once we wanted them, particularly in his operating sport.
“Everytime you see a quarterback who can run like that and break tackles – he is achieved it a few occasions this yr – it is actually powerful on their protection. Dak got here on the market and he performed his tail off.”
Prescott mentioned of Elliott’s use of the phrase “legendary”: “I am in a younger profession. I am three years in. For him to say that, I could have to inform him to not say that once more, or to attend till later. It is a hell of a praise.”
