Ahead of Week 3’s game against the New York Giants, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones welcomed the quarterback’s controversy over Dak Prescott being sidelined due to injury and being replaced by Cooper Rush.

Jones may have gotten his wish Monday night.

The Cowboys came from behind to beat the previously undefeated Giants, 23-16. Rush didn’t have the most spectacular stats (21 of 31, 215 yards, 1 touchdown), but he led Dallas to a 17-point second half, won his second straight start, His career moved to 3-0 in the match.

Prescott said before Monday’s game that he could return as early as Week 4 after injuring his throwing thumb in Week 1.

Bayless said Tuesday in an “Undisputed.” You’ve just seen Cooper Rush do this attack.It’s very high level through 3 games with very tough and tough stages.

“He’s a lot better than Andy Dalton thought as a backup quarterback. He’s clearly better than Ben Dinucci and Garrett Gilbert. We’re operating this offense at a higher level, a more consistent and efficient level.” Dak has been running it for several years. ”

Cooper Rush leads Cowboys to victory over Giants

Skip Bayless is thrilled that Cooper Rush has led his Dallas Cowboys to a big win over NFC East rivals New York Giants.

Rush’s numbers on Monday weren’t great, but Bayless rated Rush’s performance on Monday on the curve and thought he played well. I just didn’t allow it. Not only was the Cowboys able to score his fifth scoring drive, Rush avoided being sacked by Giants defensive his coordinator, Wink, against Martindale’s fierce blitzkrieg.

The way the Rush and Cowboys offensive line stood up to constant pressure impressed Bayless.

“Last night Wink Martindale’s goal was to take care of him with the headlights – light him up,” Bayless said. You know what it feels like for a quarterback to go up against a freerusher and get hit in the mouth on almost every play.He stood strong.” I played big and got hit in the face.”

The Giants scored only two quarterback hits on the rush, but the quarterback picked up the clutch again. With the game tied 13–13 at the start of the fourth quarter, Rush led the Cowboys with an 11-play, 89-yard drive and a 1-yard touchdown pass to CeeDee Lamb in the back corner of the end zone. Finished.

It was the second week in a row that the Rush led the Cowboys to victory. In Week 2, Rush completed his three passes for 30 yards in his final 57 seconds, and Brett set Maher up for his goal on the winning field, leaving Dallas to Cincinnati. 20-17 on the run.

In his first start of 2021, Rush threw the game-winning touchdown pass to lift the Cowboys to the Minnesota Vikings in the final minute. Bayless said how Rush’s performance in the clutch captivated him.

“Cooper Rush is amazingly special. Special,” Bayless said. “Cooper Rush is manipulating that attack at a level that I have never seen Dak Prescott manipulating it. Efficiently and effectively. I told you, he Playing with fearless composure and commanding that attack.He’s been in it for six years.He’s 28.He’s not a raw rookie to be thrown into the fire.”

Prescott had his stitches removed Monday, just two weeks after surgery, and although he hasn’t ruled out a return against the Commanders in Week 4, he’s targeting a return by Week 5 against the Rams.
