By leading the Cowboys to a 25–10 home victory over the Commanders on Sunday at AT&T Stadium, Dallas quarterback Cooper Rush stands as the only quarterback in franchise history to win his first four career starts.
It has Cowboys fans on cloud nine and wanting to see him stay permanently at the QB position.
Rush stepped in for starter Dak Prescott after Prescott fractured his thumb during Dallas’ season-opening loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Since then, the 28-year-old has reeled off three straight wins.
Rush went 15 of 27 for 223 yards and threw a pair of touchdowns in the win.
Despite his success, there will be no quarterback controversy in Dallas. Cowboys star DeMarcus Lawrence has made it clear to any fans wanting rush over Dak.
“I say, ‘Calm down.’ I say, ‘Calm down.’ I know you’re happy for the football team but also understand this is still a business. So don’t get it twisted,” he said, per Jori Epstein of Yahoo! Sports.
Rush has completed 62 of 102 passes for 737 yards and four touchdowns. Rush also has taken care of the football, as he has yet to throw an interception this season.
Meantime, Prescott reportedly is aiming to return in Week 5 when the Cowboys travel to California to play the Rams.
Because of his good play, the Cowboys do not have to rush Dak back until he is fully healed and ready.
