Besides being immensly successful, the Dallas Cowboys owe their Thanksgiving game slot over the years to their popularity and the nickname, “America’s Team”, which has stayed with them since their first glory days in the 1970’s.
And as we get to Thanksgiving again, the Cowboys find themselves in an excellent position: The best record in the NFL, with a good shot at locking up the NFC East despite having Dak Prescott, a fourth-round rookie, at quarterback. Combined with a monsterous offensive line, underrated receiving crew and the best rookie running back since Adrian Peterson (Ezekiel Elliott) if you didn’t know, they’re well on their way to their best season in over 20 years.
One of the special things about Thanksgiving games are the jerseys, and we’ve got a nice little selection for the 2016 Thanksgiving NFL event which includes the Cowboys playing the Washington Redskins, a special rivalry game for a special day: Prescott, Elliott and Roger Staubach Thanksgiving jerseys. Two of the biggest Cowboys legends, and two from possible legends in the making.
Dallas Cowboys Ezekiel Elliott Thanksgiving Jersey
Ezekiel Elliott, the fourth overall pick out of Ohio State, isn’t just the best rookie running back this season; he’s the best running back in the NFL, period. The former Buckeyes superstar has been unstoppable behind a freightening offensive line, and pretty quickly established himself as one of the rising stars of the NFL, which means his Thanksgiving jersey is quite the popular item.
Dallas Cowboys Dak Prescott Thanksgiving Jersey
The second sensetional rookie the Cowboys are featuring this season is Dak Prescott, a fourth round pick out of Mississippi State. All was lost (or looked like it) when Tony Romo went down with another injury during the preseason. But the backup quarterback quietly took over the QB spot and has been improving while winning, each week at a time. Having a Dak Prescott Thanksgiving jersey could be something you tell your grandchildren about one day.
Dallas Cowboys Roger Staubach Thanksgiving Jersey
The first big Dallas Cowboys legend, Roger Staubach is probably the best quarterback in the history of the franchise, playing during the 70’s and leading them to a couple of Super Bowl titles. Buying a Roger Staubach Thanksgiving jersey isn’t just cool, it’s smart because it’s on a huge sale, costing only $28.29 instead of $294.99.
