Cowboys take command over Washington – is something brewing in Dallas?

    Add another W to the win column, as the celebrate a 25-10 win over the . The Cowboys now sit at 3-1, second place in the East behind the undefeated .

    It feels like a lifetime ago when trotted off the field with an during the fourth quarter of opening day against the in week one. There were so many questions about this team’s identity, personnel decisions, and how they could recover from the significant that unfolded earlier in the year.

    Well, those questions seem to have been answered as the Cowboys are on a roll to begin the season. The scary part? The Cowboys aren’t even at full strength yet.

    Former Pittsburg Steelers WR is still out with an ankle injury that he suffered during , and Dallas Cowboys starting QB Dak Prescott is also eyeing to return to the field sooner rather than later, which will give this Cowboys the spark that it needs.

    has done a remarkable job in Prescott’s absence and has done everything asked of him. However, this Cowboys offense ranks in the bottom half of the league regarding points scored and offensive production. Last year with Dak Prescott under , the Dallas Cowboys were the #1 scoring offense in the entire NFL. That is the type of production you get with Prescott on the field.

    returned to the team after tearing his ACL earlier in the year and immediately made his presence known, scoring a touchdown in the back of the end zone in his first game back.

    Although Cooper Rush has made Dallas Cowboys by becoming the first to begin his career with a 4-0 record – Rush credits this Dallas as the reason this team is having so much success:

    “They’re the reason we’re winning. It’s plain and simple.” Rush said, during his post-game after his win against the Washington Commanders.

    It is no secret that this Cowboys defense is a reckoning for opposing offenses. The Cowboys only allowed the Commanders one touchdown during Sunday’s game and have only surrendered four touchdowns in their first four games combined. As of right now, this Dallas defense ranks third in points allowed, seventh in total yards allowed, and sixth in passing yards allowed.

    This is a recipe for a championship-winning defense.

    The Cowboys will now shift their focus onto next week as they take on their biggest challenge of the season so far, with a game against the defending Champions, the . It is unclear if starting QB Dak Prescott will be ready for the challenge, or if Rush Hour will be extended for another week.

    But now is the time for the Cowboys to show us what exactly is brewing down in Dallas.

    2022 Total QBR

    1 Pat Mahomes 82.3
    2 T Tagovalioa 77.8
    3 J Allen 76.5
    4 C Rush 73.9

    Last year, 2021, DP had a final QBR of 54.6 (11th in the league), and that was boosted from around 50 (17th) by way of a Philly “forfeit” last game of the year.

    Not sure what this “spark” that the Cowboys need. Can it be better than 3-0? Rush is apparently a HUMBLE guy, giving credit to the defense, and they have played well. But what I see so far, with CR at the helm, looks very good. Hope it continues, and Rams will be a tough game after they got stung by SF.

    It seems some folks like glitzy empty calorie stats against scrub teams or late in games when far behind and the outcome is already known. I prefer meaningful stats that wins games or so-called clutch stats. Cowboy great HOF QB Roger Staubach didn’t have the “big” stats, he just won the “big” games.
