Dak Prescott plays worst with brightest lights on him
Dak Prescott could do no wrong for the Dallas Cowboys this season. That is, until Sunday Night. Dak completed less than 50 percent (17 for 37) of his passes and two interceptions in the 10-7 loss to the Giants. New York, playing without Jason Pierre Paul on the defensive line, sacked the rookie quarterback three times and took him out of his game early on.
There may not be an 11-2 team in NFL history who has this much chatter around them calling for change. The Giants regular season sweep of Dallas is alarming, and there is now a blueprint on tape to beat the Cowboys. The way the Giants threw different defensive schemes at Prescott is how many feel Seattle could beat Dallas in a playoff game.
Whether you overreact this morning like some, and call for the Cowboys to go back to Tony Romo, or you still believe Dak Prescott gives you the best chance to win, everyone needs to chill. Dallas plays two playoff contenders with everything to play for next in Tampa Bay and Detroit. The Bucs have won five in a row and will pose a tough test for the Cowboys offense, while the Lions currently sit as the number 2 seed and are trying to win their first division title since Bill Clinton was president.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones can’t afford for his rookie quarterback to play as bad as he did Sunday night again. The team chemistry is rolling right now, and as long as they don’t play the Giants, they are unbeatable. Dak and Dez Bryant have yet to build the type of chemistry you look for, and that could come back to haunt this team in January. As for Tony Romo, the debate of whether he should get some playing time during the regular season or not hinges on when Dallas clinches homefield. A home loss next week to Tampa Bay could have the Romo chants a little louder in Big D.
