Jerry Jones was not lying when he talked about his Dallas Cowboys’ plans for their Week 18 game at the Philadelphia Eagles on Saturday night.

One of the big questions teams that have already clinched their divisions entering the final regular season game face is whether they should play starters or give them rest. Jones said prior to Saturday night’s game that he expected quarterback Dak Prescott to play into the fourth quarter.

Jones wasn’t lying.

Prescott remained in the game through a touchdown drive that began in the third quarter and ended with a touchdown early in the fourth. After giving his Cowboys a 37-20 lead thanks to his fifth touchdown pass of the game, Prescott finally was subbed out for Cooper Rush.

Prescott’s final stats were: 21/27 for 295 yards and a career-high five touchdowns.

Jones’ reasoning makes sense. The Cowboys played well on Saturday night, which should give them confidence and momentum entering the playoffs. This was also a good time for Prescott to build his confidence.

Ezekiel Elliott also added some context to the decision.
