Jason Witten made Dak Prescott nervous as hell when the two first met over the summer. The Cowboys’ rookie quarterback sensation admitted as much this week while appearing on an episode of Sports Media’s Inside the Huddle.
Witten, after all, was a 10-time Pro Bowl tight end to whom Prescott looked up as a Dallas fan growing up.
Witten was the guy I guess you could say made me the most nervous, Prescott told host Tyler Clutts when asked which Cowboys intimidated the rookie upon their first meeting.
What does that mean for both teams in the divisional-round rematch Here are Sporting Newspredictions and picks for the game.

Authentic Womens Paul Dawson Jersey Vinnie Iyer (against the spread): Aaron Rodgers has been a quarterback possessed during the hottest streak of his career. But he will be without injured wide receiver Jordy Nelson, a game-changer against Dallaspass defense. Green Bay cant expect to run much better than it did against the Giants, so Rodgers will need to stay on it with Davante Adams, Randall Cobb and Jared Cook.
I think he’ll do that. We’ll help him with that, but he has to help himself, and we believe he’ll do that. He’s a smart guy but sometimes he doesn’t do smart things.
Reese went on to say that Beckham needs to grow up.
Beckham, 24, recorded his third straight season of at least 1,300 receiving yards in 2016, but his campaign was riddled by emotional blowups and questions about maturity. It’s clear the Giants will expect much more from the face of the franchise next season.
