When Dak Prescott went down with a season-ending ankle injury, backup QB Andy Dalton came in and instituted a drive that allowed the Dallas Cowboys to beat the New York Giants last week.
Most expected the veteran QB to be serviceable, filling in for Dak Prescott for the rest of the Dallas Cowboys season. One game in, and those thoughts have changed drastically.
The team could only muster up 3 points before getting a garbage time touchdown in a blowout loss to the Cardinals on Monday Night Football.
Chase Stuart of Football Perspective says that there are major trade rumors starting to flare up that includes New York Jets quarterback Sam Darnold making his way to Big D. He floats a second-round pick in the NFL Draft as potential return.
2-4 is good for first place in the NFC East for the Cowboys, but simply getting into the playoffs isn’t enough for a team that had Super Bowl aspirations all offseason.
The Jets dropped to 0-6 on Sunday with another embarrassing loss, this one a 24-0 defeat by the Dolphins. The team has already shown a willingness to get rid of players on the roster, so Darnold might be the next one on his way out.
