The Cowboys have fallen two games below .500 for the first time in nearly three years.
Ezekiel Elliott knows they can’t afford to dig the hole deeper and have any hope of winning the NFC East, David Moore of the Dallas Morning News reports.
“We definitely have talked about it,” running back Ezekiel Elliott said. “We’ve definitely talked about kind of just having that mentality of us vs. the world.
“We’ve got to go out there and win as many ballgames as we can to give ourselves the opportunity to get in the playoffs. We need to attack that the right way and prepare so we’re ready.”
Does that make Sunday night’s game against Philadelphia a must win?
“One hundred percent a must win,” Elliott said.
