Silver Star Nation:Keys to beating Raiders

December 16, 2017 - It's that time again for some Silver Star Nation keys to the Cowboys game Sunday against the Oakland Raiders.

The first key is, can't let them get my quarterback. That comes compliments of Cowboys right tackle La'el Collins, and he means the Cowboys have to protect Dak Prescott. They've been doing a better job of that of late. In the last two games the Cowboys have only given up one sack, but in those three games they lost in a row, they gave up 14 sacks, so the Raiders have been pretty good of late sacking quarterbacks registering 12 in the last three games.

The second key is, biggie size. The Cowboys this past game against the New York Giants came up with three plays of 50+ yards. All three plays either ended up in a touchdown, or eventually led to the touchdown. Those big plays certainly make it a lot easier to score points.

And the third key is, to steal the Raiders slogan, Just Win Baby! That's right, the Cowboys have to keep winning. It doesn't matter how. It doesn't matter how it looks, but if the Cowboys want to keep their playoff hopes alive they need to win their third consecutive game. Beat the RAiders and then have two games left, and guess what? For those two games, Zeke Elliott will be back.

And those are your Silver Star Nation keys. I'm Mickey Spagnola.
