The Dallas Cowboys lost in humbling fashion Sunday and dropped to second place in the NFC East behind the undefeated Philadelphia Eagles.

The first three games have given us a chance to evaluate Dak Prescott in the Texas Coast offense. While the Cowboys offense ranks near the top of the NFL in EPA per play, their red zone struggles have become a national storyline, and rightfully so.

Prescott needs to clean up aspects of his game, like being more decisive taking off with his legs, but he's not on the list of Dallas' top concerns.

It's still early in the regular season, but three games is a big enough sample size to revaluate the NFC East quarterback rankings.

4. Sam Howell, Commanders

The Commanders entered Week 3 with the momentum of a 2-0 record, but they were humbled by Buffalo to the tune of a 37-3 beatdown.

Howell isn't totally to blame for the loss, as the Bills racked up a whopping nine sacks (third most in team history) and another 15 hits. Howell was pressured on 27 of 39 dropbacks (69.2%), which was the second-highest pressure rate in the Next Gen Stats era.

That said, Bills players mentioned postgame that they could exploit multiple of Howell's worst tendencies, including holding the ball too long on third down, his vision against zone coverage and propensity to lock into one receiver.

That game plan worked, as Howell was 19-of-29 for 170 yards, zero touchdowns and four interceptions. It was arguably the worst QB performance of the week and brings Howell's passer rating for the season to 74.1, which is 28th of 34 qualified signal-callers.
