The Dallas Cowboys continue to ride high and have now improved to 10 wins against 1 loss; defeating the Washington Redskins despite Kirk Cousins throwing three touchdowns on the 4th quarter.
Dak Prescott led the offense with two touchdowns to put the Cowboys past the Redskins 31-26.
Redskins safety Donte Whitner says he and the rest of the team is frustrated playing against the Cowboys as Dak seems to have a lot of options for the offense that makes it very hard to predict their next move.
Dak has ability to run the ball and score a touchdown, can pass it off to Ezekiel Elliot who is one the top RBs in the league, or throw it to a health Dez Bryant.
As per Donte Whitner — “They’re very frustrating. You have a lot of quarterbacks in the National Football League that take chances with the football and [you] get the opportunity for interceptions. To put the ball on the ground when you get to them, when you sack them. This quarterback doesn’t do that. … That’s why he’s playing so well. He understands situations, he’s not trying to turn the football over, and he’s taking this opportunity and running with it.”
Even Redskins defensive end Chris Baker has same sentiments:
“[Dak Prescott] showed a lot of poise, made the plays that he was supposed to make whether it was using his feet or making that perfect throw in the corner. He did what he had to do to win the game. That’s why their record is the way they are. They can run with Dak, they can pass with him, give it to [Ezekiel Elliott]. They’re 10-1 for a reason.”
The Dallas Cowboys has found a gem in Dak Prescott and would continue to ride the success and provide lots of frustrations to their opponents.
