The sky is falling for the Dallas Cowboys. But at 2-3, Big D can still steal the show, even without the leadership of Dak Prescott. Lot’s to talk about.
This isn’t how the 2020 season was supposed to go. Even at a 2-3 standing, the Dallas Cowboys appear to be drifting out of orbit. The team is banking and hoping for a weak NFC East, which may feed the organization a lifeline.
Yes, quarterback Dak Prescott is gone for the year. It’s not a sentence you want to utter considering he was the MVP of Big D so far and, was arguably the most valuable player in the NFL up until the third period of the Giants game.
The Dallas Cowboys were already in deep hope mode with Dak Prescott playing lights out football, but now the squad is spinning on contingent plans with a weak defense and a suspicious special teams. The team wasn’t going to fix these conspicuous problems overnight, so adding insult to injury by losing Prescott with an ankle injury certainly sucks the air out of Cowboys Nation.
The show moves forward. It will go on. It must go on.
