Saw a story yesterday that the Cowboys were seriously evaluating their kicker. Yeah the kicker, that's where the talent problem is. That explains it all.
The game Thursday reminded me a lot of the Titans game last year where Mariota went 22-23 and was praised for a great game when he totally sucked. The Cowboys all finished with good stats, all of them gathered Blake Bortles style in the second half when the game was over. Cooper finished with 6 catches, 88 yards and a touchdown. Good game right? He was 1 catch on three targets for 15 yards while the game was still in doubt. 5 catches, 73 yards and a touchdown that didn't matter even a little.
Prescott finished with 334 yards. He had 270 of those yards after the Bear took control of the game 24-7, he went two full quarters between the first drive and the 24-7 score with 19 yards passing.
The second highest paid Dlinemen in the league had two tackles and no sacks. He's had 1/2 sack in his last five games.
There are some long lean years ahead for the Cowboys.
