With the Cowboys vying for playoff position, Dallas is facing their toughest opponent of the season Sunday when they take on the Patriots.
It’s difficult enough to beat the Patriots when they’re playing fairly, but when Bill Belichick is utilizing biological warfare.
Several notable Cowboys including Jourdan Lewis and Xavier Woods have fallen ill to the flu this week leading up to the big game, with star QB Dak Prescott taking medication for precautionary purposes.
Flu bug has swept the Cowboys this week. Joe Thomas and Ben Bloom have it. Justin March has a respiratory infection, Jordan Lewis and Xavier Woods just recovered from it. Cowboys gave Dak Prescott some medicine as a precaution for any issues.

This hasn’t been a isolated occurrence.
Prior to the 2017 AFC Championship game, many Steelers players became ill prior to the chance for a trip to the Super Bowl facing off against New England.
If it makes Dallas fans feel any better, Tom Brady himself is questionable with an elbow injury on his throwing arm.
