The Dallas Cowboys got pummeled in Denver, losing 42-17. Not much went right for the Cowboys. Ezekiel Elliott was held to 8 rushing yards on 9 attempts. Dak Prescott averaged less than 5 yards per attempt against Denver’s tough defense, dropping back to throw 52 times, getting sacked twice, and throwing for under 250 yards.
In postgame interviews, it sounds like Garrett was direct about Prescott’s performance.
Dallas is the most popular–and thus most criticized team. Garrett, by the way, punted on 4th and 3 down by 18 and is not blameless in the Cowboys’ performance. Dak can play better. And the Denver defense, as we have learned plenty of times over the last few years, can embarrass you if you aren’t at the top of your game.
