NFL analyst says Cowboys have some of the best defensive triplets in the league

The term “triplets” was created to describe the legendary offensive force composed of Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith, and Michael Irvin. Collectively, they were the engine driving the Dallas Cowboys dynasty of the early 1990s. Now the term has been appropriated across the league. Mostly it has been used to describe the same combination of offensive skill players. A recent example was put up at, ranking the current trio of Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott, and Amari Cooper as the twelfth best in the league, which is respectable.
