The Dallas Cowboys’ return of Dak Prescott did not go as planned. The Cowboys were “whupped,” as the quarterback put it, by the Denver Broncos in a 30-16 loss that did not feel as close as the final score suggested. “We were defeated. We were thrashed in every facet of the game, particularly on offence “Prescott remarked. Prescott completed 19 of 39 passes for 232 yards and two touchdowns, both to Malik Turner in the fourth quarter when the game was already decided, and an interception in his first game since suffering a right calf injury against the New England Patriots on Oct. 17. He was sacked twice in his career.
After the Denver Broncos thrashed the Dallas Cowboys Dak Prescott won’t blame his absence on a calf strain
Prescott stated after the game that his calf was not an issue. “I mean, I moved a lot, I scrambled a lot to get out of the pocket, no problems,” Prescott said. “It didn’t feel right to me. I’m perfectly fine.” Prescott was making his first appearance in 21 days. After beating the Patriots, the Cowboys had a bye week, and they kept Prescott out of last week’s win over the Minnesota Vikings, with backup Cooper Rush throwing for 325 yards and two touchdowns. Prescott had a “difficult, uphill day,” according to coach Mike McCarthy. McCarthy stated, “I believe it’s like everything, the speed of the game is something you can’t duplicate.”
Prescott had his usual turns in practise coming up to the Broncos game after focusing on his rehab the week before the Vikings game. With a right latissimus strain, he missed a considerable amount of practise time and all four preseason games coming into the season opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers out of training camp. “I mean, I wasn’t as clean as I usually am or as I have been.” “It’s difficult to say and assign blame,” Prescott remarked. “I took a lot of time off and came back different in the first game [vs. Tampa Bay], so I’m not going to blame two weeks when I had a tremendous week of practise under my belt coming into this one.”
“We weren’t our regular selves in the passing game when we needed to be, and I just missed some throws. We didn’t carry out our plan.” Prescott had a league-high 73.1 percent completion rate entering Sunday’s game, and he has thrown at least three touchdown passes in four straight games. He completed 6 of 19 throws for 79 yards through three quarters on Sunday. McCarthy did not want to bench Prescott despite the overwhelming score. “To be honest, it was a purposeful effort in the fourth quarter to keep him in there for the 2-minute work,” McCarthy said.
“It’s something that, based on all of the situational work we’ve done and the dedication you’ve shown to each circumstance, we required. So I was pleased to see that we had some 2-minute production, because I believe it’s something we can take away from this game.” Prescott would have been furious if he had been benched. “There was still game to be played out there,” Prescott said. “It never occurred to me that I would be leaving the game.” If someone had asked me to make the decision, I would have told them I couldn’t. We needed to get something going, to be sure. We needed to regain some vigour and momentum. We needed to show our fight, our resiliency, which has helped us win a lot of games in the past. You have to show your character when you’re getting beaten like that.” That, I believe, is where the route begins, with all of us sticking in the game and battling to the conclusion, hoping to get some momentum or something to take away from this game. Yeah, I never imagined myself getting out of it.”
