Sean Lee #50 of the Dallas Cowboys hits Paul Perkins #28 of the New York Giants in the first half of a game at AT&T Stadium on September 10, 2017 in Arlington, Texas.

A Dallas loss to the division rivals would hand the Eagles a stranglehold on the division heading into Thanksgiving.

Prescott is certainly right about the importance of this game for Dallas.

The Cowboys (5-4) are doing the math on how to get in the postseason because they are now on the outside looking in. Second to that, it's the Eagles.

Clayborn sacked Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott six times in a rampaging display during the Falcons 27-7 win, the second-best single-game performance in National Football League history.


"I do personally", the Cowboys quarterback said.

As for the middle linebacker spot, Sean Lee strained his hamstring early in the game.

Clayborn took full advantage of the absence of Cowboys left tackle Tyron Smith, who was sidelined due to injury.

"He's doing well. I got all the faith in him and our trainers and just our organization on making sure he's ready to go when we need him", Prescott said.
