3. Daniel Jones outperforms Dak Prescott and silences the haters

It goes without saying, but Danny Dimes is going to have to be at his best if the G-Men want to come away with a victory. Jones is 1-6 against the Cowboys in his career and he has never come out on top when going up against Dak Prescott. Jones has had his fair share of struggles vs. Dallas over the past four years, but that won't be what happens in primetime.

Jones enters this game with plenty of confidence. General manager Joe Schoen and head man Brian Daboll have put their full trust in him, as the fifth-year signal-caller earned his four-year, $160 million extension this offseason. The former No. 6 overall pick is coming off the best year of his career and he needs to hit the ground running this weekend.

The last time we saw Jones in action, he had a nightmare showing vs. the Eagles in the NFC Divisional Round. However, the week before, he topped 300 yards and two touchdowns in the Wild Card Round win over the Vikings. Against the Cowboys, look for Jones to toss for 265 yards and three touchdowns, while adding at least 50 additional yards on the ground.
