Dak Prescott could force Cowboys owner Jerry Jones to back-up the Brinks truck if the third-year quarterback manages to beat ​the Los Angeles Rams on the road this Saturday.


Dallas has been dreadful in road playoff games for nearly 30 years now, going just 2-13 straight up in those contests since 1981. In fact, the Cowboys have lost seven straight playoff games on the road, with their last victory coming way back in 1993. Ironically, Cowboys coach Jason Garrett was Dallas' backup quarterback during that victory. 

However, the Cowboys' playoff woes are not exclusive to road games. Dallas is 3-8 straight up in the playoffs since 1998, and have only gone 3-2 SU at home during that stretch.


Unfortunately for Dallas, it's unlikely that things get much better against the Rams. The Cowboys are 7.5-point underdogs, according to FanDuel Sportsbookand the moneyline on Dallas is +270.

If Prescott does manage to pull off an upset, he'd secure the Cowboys' first road victory in since Bill Clinton's inauguration. Prescott has a chance to leave his stamp on this franchise forever, likely earning himself a massive contract in the process. With a spot in the NFC Championship Game on the line, NFL fans should make a point to tune into ​this matchup on Saturday.
