DAL 31, WAS 21: Dak Prescott Dominant In Comfortable Win

Fourth year quarterback Dak Prescott is up for a new contract t this offseason, and he’s playing like he knows it.

After putting up a perfect passer rating in the Cowboys’ season opening win, he was once again excellent today. Prescott threw for 269 yards and 3 touchdowns, and also ran for 69 yards on 5 attempts to lead the Cowboys to their 31-21 victory over the Washington Redskins.

Prescott spread the ball around to a multitude of different targets. Tight end Jason Witten caught his second touchdown of the year, Amari Cooper had yet another touchdown as well, Michael Gallup went for 68 yards on 6 catches, and even Devin Smith had a huge day to lead the team in receiving. Ezekiel Elliott eclipsed the 100 yard rushing mark for the first time this season, and got himself a rushing touchdown as well to seal the deal.DAL 31, WAS 21: Dak Prescott Dominant In Comfortable Win

Defensively, the Cowboys were not as impressive. While the final statistics are skewed due to garbage time yards and scoring, this defense felt like they were on their heels the entire afternoon. DeMarcus Lawrence came up with a couple big pressures, but outside of Tyrone Crawford’s first half sack the Cowboys didn’t create many problems for Redskins quarterback Case Keenum.

This defense will need to tighten up if they are to contend with the elite offenses they’ll have to face around the NFC going forward.

Dallas is now 2-0 on the season, with both wins coming over division opponents. Of course, they’ve dominated the two worst teams in the division, and both match-ups with the Philadelphia Eagles still loom large later in this season.

Regardless, the Cowboys are off to an excellent start to their 2019 campaign, and get to come home to play the lowly Miami Dolphins next Sunday.

What do you think?
