While still absolutely thrilled over last week's dominant victory over the Minnesota Vikings, it's a good idea to take a look at what happened during the game to result in this kind of beatdown.
I am also happy to say that Offensive Coordinator Kellen Moore had some pretty darn good plays Sunday. It was very satisfying to see the offense finally look as it should. With the amount of talent that is on the team, it's good to know that we can perform at this kind of level if we put forward the effort to make good plays and figure out how to get around the opponent team's defense.
Kellen Moore really needs to look over the film this week, not only at his team but at HIMSELF too. It's time for him to realize what he did right and put it forward for every remaining game.
YO, what happened? Quarterback Dak Prescott went off Sunday with amazing stats of 22/25 passes completed and 276 total yards. With two touchdowns, it's amazing to see him play like this. I understand that a QB can't perform this well “every” week, but I am glad that he had a good day, especially over a critical game like this one.
This is the Dak that everyone has been waiting for, his ability to drive down the field and hit wide receivers with such accuracy is very important as we approach the postseason.
Where to start? Only three points were allowed on a team that had an average of 25 points per game this season. I have to give a ton of credit to our cornerbacks for only allowing Quarterback Kirk Cousins to have 105 yards in this game which is the least amount of yards he has had this season.
The defense also completed a task that a lot of people thought would be a struggle for them, which was stopping Running Back Dalvin Cook. The Cowboys only allowed 90 yards on 20 carries for Dalvin. This was a big reason why the Cowboys got the win. The way they contained Cook and only allowed small runs rather than bigger runs was huge.
Usually, on these types of posts, I would describe some things I think the Cowboys did badly at, however, I don't have any complaints. I don't think anyone could have asked for a better victory.
The only thing Cowboy fans can hope for is that Kellen Moore, Dak Prescott, and the defense keep these types of performances up for the rest of the season. A tough match-up against the New York Giants approaches. This game will be critical when it comes to conference play. Let's hope the same Cowboy team that played the Vikings will show up against the Giants.
