Landon Collins laid out the New York Giants’ defensive strategy for Sunday’s game against the Cowboys by saying the focus is on stopping Dallas running back Ezekiel Elliott.
When told of Collins’ statement Thursday, Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott had a simple response.

Cowboys receiver Allen Hurns said Collins’ statement is more about the entire passing game.
“As far as him saying it out loud, it doesn’t change anything for us,” Hurns said. “Of course, he kind of called out our quarterback, but we know, week in, week out, we’ve got to make plays in the passing game.”
Prescott admitted he missed a lot of plays that could have changed the outcome of the game.
“I didn’t play well, and the only way I know how to play better is to go to work and put in the time, put in the time the right way with the right focus, and that has been my plan,” said Prescott, who said his injured ankle is not an issue after going through two full practices this week.
If you watched the game, Dak looked very mediocre. He’s not a great Quarterback, but he can be a pretty good one at times. Playing the QB at the NFL level is all about consistency. Dak shows very little of that.
Not sure why Collins would give Dak any bulletin board material. It didn’t work out very well for him last time.
This is what happened last time Landon Collins challenged the quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys.
