Mike McCarthy made his return to the Dallas Cowboys facility on Thursday.

The veteran NFL head coach had been out after testing positive for COVID-19. McCarthy missed last Thursday night's win over the New Orleans Saints.

McCarthy returns a couple of days before the Cowboys' big division showdown against the Washington Football Team.

Dallas' head coach essentially guaranteed a victory on Sunday, too.

“We’re going to win this game. I’m confident in that," the Cowboys head coach said.

That's not quite Joe Namath-level, but it's still pretty cool. Of course, an NFL head coach should believe his team will win every game. But, you rarely see an NFL head coach - or player - come out and said "we're going to win" before kickoff.

The Cowboys and the Football Team are set to kick off at 1 p.m. E.T.

Sunday afternoon's game will be televised on FOX.
