“you can definitely feel it. I can't tell you how many times since I've been here having an interaction with a fan, it's, like, ‘Hey, beat Dallas.’

... It also meant bulletin board material for the Cowboys.
After Dallas' convincing win, the team's social account couldn't resist trolling their foe with a well-executed tweet featuring a modified version of the famed shirt.
The Cowboys improved to 2-1 as Dak Prescott threw for three touchdowns in his first home game since suffering a season-ending compound fracture and dislocation of his right ankle in Week 5 last year.
"Just thankful for everything that I've been through, all of the hard work that made me account for just to be back out here doing what I love," Prescott said of his performance. "It's the greatest place to play football."
