Dak: “We know we’re for real and we believe that.”

Prescott threw for 445 yards and three touchdowns on Sunday. Cowboys cornerback Trevon Diggs also had a pick-six for his seventh interception and second touchdown of the season.

As long as Dallas continues its stellar play on both sides of the ball, the Cowboys should be in contention for an appearance in Super Bowl LVI.
