After dominating the two New York-based NFL teams, the Dallas Cowboys suffered a shocking defeat in Week 3.
They will try to bounce back in Week 4 against the New England Patriots.
That matchup also marks Ezekiel Elliott’s return to AT&T Stadium after spending seven seasons with the Cowboys.
Linebacker Micah Parsons shared his thoughts on playing against Elliott, who was his teammate for two seasons.
“I feel like Zeke’s coming for me. He used to tell me, ‘You’re lucky I’m not out there. I’d really get you.’ If there’s ever a matchup, I’m gonna be looking forward to it, for sure. … You know Zeke, everything is gonna be funny to him.

While they have faced each other in countless practices, being on opposite sides during an NFL game is different.
They may be good friends, but that will be different once the game begins.
Meanwhile, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones revealed they are planning a tribute for Ezekiel Elliott in his return.
However, he hasn’t revealed specifics of what will happen.
What’s certain is that Parsons won’t welcome the idea of Elliott having a big game on their home field.
Instead, the two-time All-Pro would like to restore their claim as the best unit on that side of the ball by dominating the Patriots.
