The Cowboys signalman was turned off to start this season.
Again, it’s crazy to think the score could have been even more off balance than it was. Prescott was obviously referring to Fletcher Cox recovering in the end zone of his bag-fumble in the first quarter, briefly tying the game at 7-7. There was also the issue of Prescott’s goal-line quarterback sneaking into fourth, which he – unsurprisingly – thought he had converted, despite reviewers’ disagreement.
âI thought I scored,â he said. âI mean obviously at the start and then I even put the balloon over the plane. But that’s what it is. I guess you can’t look back and know when the whistle went. been given.
Credit to Prescott and his offense: The backhand seemed to bother them for about 20 seconds. Four minutes of play after the turnaround on downs, the Dallas defense had forced a punt and Prescott had found Dalton Schultz for a score of 19 yards. âIt’s tough when we have as much depth as we have,â Schultz said. “The guys sit down and try to play shell, which opens up a lot of opportunities for tight ends in the middle.”
10 truths about Cowboys ‘win over Eagles: Dan Quinn became Dallas’ best offseason addition – Jean-Jacques Taylor, Dallas Morning News
Take a look back at the Cowboys’ dominant performance last night.
1. The Cowboys’ best offseason decision was to hire defensive coordinator Dan Quinn. He reshaped one of the NFL’s worst defenses – the one that allowed a franchise record of 472 points last season – giving it structure and direction. The result is a unit playing to its potential, creating turnovers and playing with maximum effort. Dallas intercepted two passes, sacked Jalen Hurts twice and allowed just one touchdown when it counted. They also drew five detention penalties.
Quinn plans the game to leverage the strengths of rookie Micah Parsons while letting Trevon Diggs cover the opponent’s best receiver. Quinn has made a difference, and if that continues throughout the season, he will have the chance to be head coach again.
2. Ezekiel Elliott played tyrant against Philadelphia.
Obviously, he wanted to prove a point this week after hearing on social media how Tony Pollard was the Cowboys’ best option as a running back and that he was not worth his $ 90 million contract. Elliott tackled and played with such force that he inspired his teammates. He finished with a high 95 yards with just one rush in the fourth quarter.
Ten Things We Learned From The Dallas Cowboys’ Dominance Over The Eagles – Tom Ryle, Blogging The Boys
What were your main lessons from Monday night’s game?
The Cowboys are the best team in the NFC East. It was a full kick, and it would have been a lot more dominant had it not been for a real late touchdown by the losers. The Cowboys came in with a very weak defense and a few attacking starters, and still took control of the game early on and never gave up. They were clearly the better team on the pitch, and both New York Giants and Washington football team seem unable to challenge them. These two only have one win between them – the fight team victory over the Giants. Plus, Dak Prescott is hands down the best quarterback in the division. It is indeed early. It is also difficult to dispute the conclusion.
Trevon Diggs is the real star of the defense. It’s not at all a blow to Micah Parsons, who had a half-sack and an inclined pass. But Diggs is tied for the league lead in interceptions, with one in each of the first three games. He had the six pick that really killed any chance of the Eagles rallying. He broke two more passes. He’s been beaten once or twice, but he seems to be the best cornerback on this team for a long time.
Jerry Jones “Not Concerned” With HC Cowboys Time Management Decisions Mike McCarthy – Staff, Dallas Morning News
Looks like Jerry Jones isn’t worried about his head coach’s clock-management skills.
With a stopwatch just after the two-minute warning, the Eagles faced a third and 24 when quarterback Jalen Hurts connected with running back Miles Sanders for a 19-yard reception before being tackled near the midfield.
The game started with less than a minute to go and the Cowboys, with two timeouts remaining, did not stop the clock before or after the third down was called. The Eagles would then accept a late game penalty with 20 seconds left and a punt in fourth place. After the Eagles punt, the Cowboys knelt down to end the half rather than using their timeouts for another potential chance to score again on offense.
Jerry Jones released McCarthy on Tuesday during his weekly interview with “Shan & RJ” on 105.3 The Fan [KRLD-FM] and the Cowboys owner backed his head coach’s decision making late in the half.
âI know Mike’s abilities firsthand and I know how he approaches it, the logic he uses, and I’m not at all concerned with his ability to handle a tense situation,â Jones said, mentioning that these types of situations occur in the league. weekly.
Take a look at the impact of Week 3 on the rest of NFC.
Washington was blown away by the Bison Tickets and it wasn’t particularly close. Washington defensive end Chase Young is a very good player, but a team without a quarterback is like owning a boat and not knowing how to operate it. It looks nice as long as it’s docked, but you can’t really go anywhere. As long as Washington neglects the quarterback position, they will continue to spin their wheels without gaining traction.
The Giants lost to a Falcons team that were crushed by Philadelphia in Week 1. The Giants have a roster filled with good players, but their coaching staff and front office seem to be their biggest problem. Giants owner John Mara is the person to blame for the recent influx of provocative sanctions. He led the offseason charge to have the referees strictly enforce this rule. Do what I say and not what I do should be his mantra. Apparently, keeping your emotions in check only applies to players on the pitch.
Mara probably should have spent this offseason evaluating her own GM David Gettleman. The Giants GM is a dinosaur in an ever-changing sport. I’m not complaining because their ineptitude only helps the Cowboys, but I’m sorry for the players who are wasting their careers in this archaic-thinking franchise. I applaud the Dallas fans for enduring the Jason Garrett era for so long.
Take a look at three players who played pivotal roles in the 2-1 start.
I knowâ¦. Dalton Schultz has been an essential part of the Cowboys’ versatility in attack. OK, maybe he’s not that low-key after posting the first multi-touchdown game of his career in Monday’s resounding win over the Eagles. But the fourth-round pick in the 2018 draft quietly becomes a full tight end, and it shows that his career-high 63 catches last season were no fluke.
Lots of offseason debate over how the offense would split up tight snaps with Blake Jarwin back in good health. So far, the distribution is fairly even: Schultz with 155 snaps against 120 for Jarwin. In three games, offensive coordinator Kellen Moore actually uses more tight looks than last season: 30% of offensive snaps, according to Sharp Football stats, up from 21% in 2020. Part of that could be related the passage of wide receiver Michael Gallup in the reserve / injured, but it also shows the adaptability of the offense – and the difficulty in keeping Schultz off the field.
The fourth year veteran helps in all areas. His growth as a blocker is evident in the running game, where the Cowboys are averaging 4.6 yards per carry, and in pass protection, helping second-year right tackle Terence Steele in places. He’s been a nice underlying option for quarterback Dak Prescott as well. Over the course of the matches, Schultz is tied for most catches on the first down on the third down (5).
