Cowboys can't afford any more losses

The Dallas Cowboys (6-6) need to win all four of their remaining games, starting Sunday against the New York Giants (2-10), to legitimize any and all hope of making the playoffs.

FRISCO, Texas -- And even that might be enough, considering the number of teams ahead of them in the race for two wild-card spots.

"It's just the playoffs start now. Simple as that," quarterback Dak Prescott said. "You've got to embrace it. If you play this game and you don't love ... If you don't love the fact that your back's against the wall and it's about what you do every week or every day that it pays off on Sunday, that's what makes this game fun."

Prescott spent the weekend massaging and rubbing the swelling out of his bruised throwing hand.

But he says he has "no limitations. It's not holding me back from doing anything. It's simply bruised. It's fine. Good to go."

The wrapping he wore on his hand early in practice Wednesday was later removed.

Prescott said the passing game wasn't perfect against the Redskins. But it was an improvement over the previous three weeks when he was intercepted five times with no touchdown passes.

He said it's definitely something he can build on, especially the connection with Dez Bryant, who leads the Cowboys with 58 catches for 639 yards and five touchdowns. Bryant does not have a 100-yard receiving game this season.

"We're still working," Prescott said. "There's a lot that we can take and grow off of that was good, but it's still not perfect or not where we want to be, so we're going to continue to work on that."

Prescott said the Cowboys are back on track after losing three consecutive games by a combined score of 92-22.

They plan to take the momentum against a desperate Giants team looking for renewed energy with a coaching change and a switch back to Eli Manning at quarterback.

"I'm sure they'll have a different energy," Prescott said. "New coach, Eli back in there. It's also Cowboys-Giants. It's going to be there, and the energy's going to be there regardless because it's a rivalry, it's in the division and it's two teams that are playing for pride, a lot of pride and then obviously us trying to make the playoffs.

"The whole point of us winning out, it motivates me," Prescott continued. "I feel like it should motivate anybody in this locker room. We're not looking at letdowns. We're not looking at anything. It's one thing in our head and it's to win. Win every game. Right now it's about winning today at practice. We did that and we're going to win tomorrow and give us the best shot to win on Sunday."
