Q: There is a lot that Dallas can throw at you. How do you handle all of that at once?
A: They are well rounded. First thing is to stop the run. That’s the number one focus. Number two is to convert on third down. Limit them on converting third downs. Get off the field on third down for us. Those are the two things that we do. That makes our chances of winning pretty high. Thirdly, get turnovers.
Q: Does it get any bigger than this Sunday night against your rival?
A: Yes, it does. The Super Bowl or division playoffs. At this point in the year, I guess not. Every game is big for us. We just look at one game at a time. The next opponent is the biggest challenge. They’re the biggest obstacle facing us at the moment in order for us to get to where we want to get to, which is the playoffs.
Q: What’s your take on Dak Prescott?
A: He’s very confident in what he does. In the scheme that they give to him and allow him to do, it plays really well to his strengths. They have a great running game, of course, but when he’s asked to throw the ball, he’s able to do that very well. He’s able to make crucial throws and decisions. He doesn’t turn over the ball that much. That is something you see.
Q: What’s the key to stopping Elliott?
A: Just keep doing what we’ve been doing all year. Keep building a wall and being aggressive.
