Sunday night is for all the marbles. Back in August, did you think that the Cowboys would be 11-1 in December? Show of hands please. The Cowboys already have a spot in the playoffs but they’re chasing that NFC East division. It’s so close that they can just taste it but the Giants haven’t been too shabby this year despite Sunday’s game against the Steelers.
As we like to call him, coach Jerry Jones, discussed Sunday’s game and the possibility of his starters resting. If you know him, you know he’s all about taking chances.
During an appearance on 105.3 The Fan on Tuesday, owner Jerry Jones said it would be business as usual. Jones said, via Charean Williams of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, the team is not planning to rest healthy starters, which fits with earlier proclamations about running back Ezekiel Elliott’s workload.
In addition to Elliott, there’s been some question about whether the Cowboys would try to get Tony Romo some playing time in order to help him be ready should starting quarterback Dak Prescott get knocked out of a game. Jones said they want Romo to be ready, so there may be some rest for at least one starter for at least some of what’s left in the regular season even if all is fine physically.
The Cowboys face off against the Giants on Sunday December 11 at 8:30 pm.
