They had a golden opportunity last season when they had the home-field advantage during the Wild Card Round after winning the NFC East.
Unfortunately, their offense faltered against the San Francisco 49ers.

“I think Dak Prescott is going to have a fantastic year. I think he’s shown he’s more than capable of playing great football consistently throughout a year,” Romo said.

Other Guys Must Step Up For The Cowboys
While Romo has no problem with Prescott, he somewhat challenged his teammates to elevate their game.
Dalton Schultz should also work to achieve a breakout season if he wants a long-term deal after signing the franchise tag.
As more players step up for the Cowboys, they will be more difficult to beat, especially if Prescott maintains or surpasses his performance.
“I think Dak is going to be Dak. I think he’s going to be good. He’s going to play good football. He’s going to give them a chance to win every week he plays,” Romo said about Prescott.NEXT: Cowboys Insider Reveals A Dalton Schultz Contract Update
