Kamu Grugier-Hill: Cowboys always choke

"They always choke. So we'll go down there and make them choke".

Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott responded Thursday first by asking "who" when told of Grugier-Hill's comments. A win will pull the Eagles into a first-place tie and give Pederson's squad the temporary tie-breaker advantage.

"It's a rivalry game. I didn't mean to disrespect this organization or coach Pederson", Grugier-Hill said, via ESPN.com.

"Look at Dallas' history", the linebacker said, via John Clark of NBC Sports Philadelphia. I didn't think too much about it.

Malcom Perry's 43-yard run to the 5 set up Garret Lewis' 1-yard rushing TD with 7:10 left in the game that pulled Navy to 10-7. Last year's game had a combined three pass attempts and quarterbacks for each team are usually the leading rushers.

Pederson made it clear to the third-year player the comments were unnecessary. The Cowboys beat the Eagles 27-20 on November 11th, and Grugier-Hill, ironically, dropped a sure pick-six.

"We know that, you know, you play these types of games, it's a full 60 minute game, it's a battle every time you play the Cowboys, you play any of our NFC East opponents, and so having guys that have been involved with games like this before, from a leadership standpoint does help", said Pederson. "I've never had to and I wouldn't expect Coach Garrett would have to do that because the players are going to see it and formulate their own opinions".

"It's unfortunate that the comments were made". "I talk to the team a lot about how we don't need to post anything that can be used on another team's website or bulletin board". They have to play. "We have to just do our jobs and focus in on one play and play for 60 minutes".

With only four games to go and a very favorable schedule ahead, Dallas is in the driver's seat of the NFC East and appear to be playoff bound.
