#3. The Offense is trending up
After being held to 19 and 17 points in the first two games of the season, the Cowboys offense has been on the rise. In their last three contests, Dallas has averaged 30 points a game. That should be enough to win most NFL matchups.
Unfortunately, the Cowboys defense has suffered from the three “I’s”: Injuries, inexperience and inconsistency. Fortunately, all of these issues can be improved upon and should be as the season progresses. Offensively, Dallas is doing enough to win ball games.
#4. Dak Prescott is running
There is a tendency for players labeled as “running quarterbacks” to stay within the pocket more in order to prove they are capable passers. With a focus to improve his accuracy in the offseason, I believe Prescott suffered from this mentality when he started the season.
But Dak is starting to realize that his mobility is a major factor in the Cowboys offensive success. That’s despite his offensive line bolstering three perennial Pro Bowlers.
Extending plays and using his legs as a constant threat opposing defenses must account for has been the key to unlocking what was a stale offensive performance to start the season.
