Dak Prescott to Landon Collins: “Challenge accepted”

Giants safety Landon Collins said he meant no disrespect when he said the Giants “really just have to focus on stopping Zeke.”

Indeed, Collins was just stating the obvious about Ezekiel Elliott and the Cowboys offense.

The Cowboys are 10-2 when Elliott rushes for 100 or more yards, including a 10-7 loss to the Giants in 2016 when Elliott had 107 yards. They are 9-5 when the third-year back has fewer than 100 yards, including only 4-4 when he has fewer than 90 rushing yards.

“Make sure we [take] the air out of their running game. Put the ball into Dak’s hands and I think we have a better shot at winning,” Collins continued when asked the key to stopping the Cowboys offense.

Prescott heard Collins’ quote, and while he didn’t seem to be offended, he did accept Collins’ challenge with double emphasis.

Challenge accepted. Challenge accepted,” Prescott said, via David Moore of the Dallas Morning News.

Prescott passed for only 170 yards Sunday in the 16-8 loss to the Panthers. It marked the seventh time in the past nine games the Cowboys have thrown for fewer than 200 yards. He was sacked six times and lost a fumble.

“I missed a lot of plays,” Prescott said. “I’ve simply got to play better. That is what this week is about.”

  1. “Challenge accepted”…lmao. Now he’s going to focus too much on passing and will make even more errors. I hope he stares down his receivers. Way to indirectly get into his head Collins. He’s seems a little salty that no one sees him as a threat anymore, now that the O-line sucks.

  2. Cowboys are the bottomfeeders in the NFC East. Thats what happens when you run a 3rd string quarterback and a truckload of junkies and felons out onto the field. All is well is Jerrys World. Carrot Top the puppet and Garretts Guys keeping “the culture” intact.

    Least in the East.

    4-11

  3. So, this is his motivation. Why do they pay any attention to this? Nobody is challenging you, they are just watching film from the last dozen games you played.

  4. There is actual video of several talking heads saying that this future back up QB was better or had a better future than Carson Wentz. It’s amazing to watch it, how unbelievably wrong all those guys were. Wentz is an MVP candidate and Dakota is hoping he turns in to a good back up QB.

  5. Cowboys are mediocre, not bad and not great. At this point, the Browns are more interesting

  6. “Make sure we [take] the air out of their running game. ”

    I’ve heard “tale the air out of the ball” meaning to run it to eat up the clock and get a win but this is a new one for me. I would say he meant it like “taske the wind out of the sails” but that is probably giving him too much credit.

  7. Cant wait to see more NFC East Divisional play. I say Eagles are the class right now, but Skins look interesting.

    ==========================

    wentz isnt even playing right now, so mvp candidate is a bit of a stretch. get what youre saying, it just isnt currently accurate.

  9. Once teams got enough film on Prescott, he was done. Collins is just stating the obvious. Prescott has to have a great offensive line and a dominant running game to succeed. Take either of those away and he’s just not very good.

  10. Two 0-1 teams in JerryWorld! Let me think, what will happen in this game. Beckman will make an acrobatic catch. Zeke will make an electrifying run. Eli will toss a couple of interceptions. Dak will take too many sacks. Cowboys O line will suffer more injuries. DeMarcus Lawrence will get a sack. Taco will create a fumble. Randolph Gregory will get a strip sack. Landon Collins will make outrageous statements. Field goal attempts will remind people of a golf game – as in slicers. Lots to watch while dinking the $13 beer and eating the $32 Papa Johns pizza.

  11. If he says nothing than it looks bad, he says something and he gets ripped, this dude can’t win no matter what with all these turds who constantly mock him, get a life morons!
