    Dallas Cowboys Cooper Rush Delivers Huge Win, Replaces Dak Prescott

    Dallas Cowboys backup quarterback Cooper Rush delivers a huge win against the Minnesota Vikings, 20-16. Things couldn’t have gone better for the Cowboys on Sunday night as they won with their backup quarterback due to Dak Prescott being injured.

    Prescott was able to rest longer for his strained right calf. Rush was able to deliver their six consecutive wins for the talented squad. Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy was very pleased and emphasized how important of a win this was for the team.

    “This was definitely a gut-check win for us,” Coach McCarthy said.

    Dallas Cowboys Impressed with Cooper Rush: ‘Just as good as the dream’

    Rush played exceptionally, considering he entered Sunday with only two career passing yards. He had not delivered a pass since 2017. Just a year ago, Rush was cut from the Cowboys and now he’s delivered a massive win by throwing the game-winning touchdown for the same team.

    “You definitely dream about them and it’s just as good as the dream,” said Rush, during post-game interviews.

    He completed 24 of 40 passes for 325 yards with 2 touchdowns, including a 5-yard fade to Amari Cooper with 51 seconds to play, per ESPN.

    His first touchdown pass of the day was a 73-yard dime to Cedrick Wilson midway through the third quarter. This was the longest throw for a Cowboy quarterback since Roger Staubach in 1969.

    “I felt like I belonged out there,” Rush said. “In the huddle, breaking the huddle, getting to the line, going through your processes, it didn’t feel overwhelming at all. I haven’t played a lot but being around the NFL, you’re practicing against these guys every day and our defense is pretty good. … It never felt too big in terms of the speed. I just felt in command.”

    Prescott’s Ready to Help Lead until His Return

    Prescott prepared to heal up entirely all week, on Sunday, Prescott McCarthy and Brown discussed his future. Prescott remained on the field delivered a few passes here and there. However, he was still put on the inactive list roughly an hour or so before kickoff.

    “I had a plan all week, trying to progress and get myself out there,” Prescott said. “We made a call at the end of having a chance to come out with a win, without me playing, and be able to get healthy and not have something re-injure and linger past this week.”

    “There wasn’t a moment I thought he was too high or nervous or rattled. That’s Coop,” Prescott said. “He’s very mild-tempered and always that way — never too high or too low. It showed tonight,” Prescott continued.
