With a Week 2 matchup against the Jets looming, Dallas Cowboys fans were tuned into Monday night's clash between New York and the Bills. Aaron Rodgers is feared to have suffered an Achilles injury, but Josh Allen couldn't outperform the outkasted Zach Wilson and the Jets walked it off in overtime.

Dak Prescott was more ridiculed last season for throwing interceptions than Allen has been in his career despite having a lower turnover ratio.

Sure enough, Allen was back to coughing up the football in primetime. He was intercepted three times and lost a crucial fumble in the fourth quarter that allowed the Jets to march down the field and kick a go-ahead field goal.

In fairness, the Allen critics are out in full force on social media, but Jayron Kearse wants the national media to lean into the Bills QB.

Because that's exactly what would happen if Dak played like this.

Just build Kearse a statue outside AT&T Stadium.

If Prescott did this, every national show would scrap its script and eviscerate the Cowboys QB for segments at a time, if not the entire program. You wouldn't even know Rodgers -- the single biggest talking point in the NFL all offseason and leading up to Week 1 -- suffered a potential season-ending injury after four snaps.

We're obviously exaggerating, but Kearse and Cowboys fans are well aware of the media's bias against Prescott.

Even though Dallas won 40-0 against the Giants in Week 1, FS1 radio host Colin Cowherd was left wanting more from Prescott. For what it's worth, the Cowboys offense ranked sixth in EPA per play (a stat that goes beyond a simple box score check) in Week 1.

All Allen had to do from the moment Rodgers went down was play a mistake-free game. Instead, the quarterback was out of control (a worryingly familiar sight with him) and his four turnovers cost the Bills a chance to pick up an easy road win against a wounded rival.

If Allen is simply a competent QB, this doesn't happen.

Again, Rodgers was injured on the Jets opening drive. Wilson struggled to move the ball and his only touchdown came on a catch-of-the-year contender by Garrett Wilson, but Allen basically had a full game to figure it out.

Allen is an upper-echelon quarterback. There's no arguing that, but he has 20 interceptions and 19 fumbles in his last 19 games. Some media members acknowledge his reckless tendencies, but he's teflon relative to the way Prescott is covered and Kearse -- and likely the entire Dallas locker room -- is fed up.
