Giants safety Landon Collins responded confidently Friday at his Citi ProCamp about his team’s chances after Dak Prescott said last week that the Cowboys would win the division, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

“I commented right underneath his picture. I said, ‘I highly doubt that.’ They do not control the [NFC] East. It’s over with. We’re going to have a run for it. I mean, they’re not going to win, I can tell you that much. We’re definitely going to take over.”

At the ESPYS, Prescott had said: “We’re the Cowboys. We’re gonna win the NFC East.”

The Cowboys (13-3) won the division last season but lost both matchups with the Giants. Prescott threw one touchdown pass in the two games.

The NFC East has not had a repeat winner since the Philadelphia Eagles did it in 2004. The Cowboys have not won back-to-back division titles since 1995-96.

But they’re confident entering this year with an offense that is loaded with talent. Many consider Dallas’ offensive line the best in football.

It didn’t stop Collins from making his bold declaration. He’s never shy to express his opinion and confidence.

“Not at all. Coming from the program I can from, the team that I came from, the kind of player that I am, I’m not afraid to say any of those words,” he said. “My team, my guys and our organization backs it up every time.”
