‘It’s really crunch time’

The chippiness in practice comes after veteran Michael Bennett, who came to Dallas just a few weeks ago after a trade from New England, was overheard shouting at teammates in the locker room after the loss to Buffalo.

Bennett was trying to encourage his fellow Cowboys, highlighting that they have great players but need to do a better job executing, especially under duress.

Elliott got the message.

“I mean, we need to start to get this going now,” he said. “Not many games left. It’s really crunch time now. We’ve got to win some ballgames. What I do know is we’ve got to go out there and play better.”

Bennett delivered the message, but he wasn’t the only one having those thoughts.

“We’re better than we’ve been. We’ve got the right group of guys in the locker room. We’ve just got to put that on the table,” Elliott said. “He said something we were all thinking. It was good to hear from him. We’ve just got to apply it.”
