Cooper performed as well as any other great quarterback this week. He managed to get 215 yards and 1 touchdown. He also had a 21/31 passing completion. Seems like just some same old stats for Rush. Until you look at his highlights for the game.
CEEDEE LAMB ONE-HANDED FOR THE LEAD 😱 @_CeeDeeThree

I mean, what other quarterback can do this? In this pass, Rush placed the ball with pinpoint precision where only Lamb could catch that ball. His accuracy is freaky good.
Another great mindset he has that results in his ability to win games is his humble behavior. Cooper was asked by a reporter after the game what he thinks about the whole “QB battle” between him and Dak Prescott, Cooper decided to downplay the whole argument, stating he is only focused on winning.
This is the attitude that a QB needs to win games. Cooper has a winning mindset and it shows during and after games.
Cooper Rush is now 3-0 as a starter, a historical stat for a quarterback who was on the bench for the last couple of years of his career. What's next for Cooper? Another NFC East opponent to play against. This time it's the Washington Commanders.
Rush will try to improve to the improbable record of 4-0 as a starter. Not a lot of quarterbacks can say that they have accomplished an achievement like this. Can't wait to see how Cooper performs next week. Hopefully, Gallup will make his return and give Rush another receiver to add to his collection.
