For the second straight season, the Buccaneers have spoiled the Cowboys’ opener in prime time.
The Dallas Cowboys are 0-1 and without star quarterback, Dak Prescott for several weeks as his broken thumb will require surgery. He will be on the shelf for approximately 6-8 weeks.
Despite the injury, former Cowboys star Dez Bryant thinks Prescott’s injury is the last of the team’s worries.
Dez is more concerned with what he saw from the rest of the team on Sunday Night Football.
“I have so much to say about the cowboys [loss] last night but I don’t need folks getting into their feelings about the truth but if I’m Jerry I’m taking the boys back to valley ranch to practice,” said Bryant.
The Cowboys managed a paltry 160 yards with seven minutes left to play before entering garbage time.
Without Prescott for an extended period, all of the other issues within the lineup become magnified. Last season’s No. 1 ranked offense was already a shell of itself, thanks to the team’s offseason maneuvering.
The team traded away A,ari Cooper to make way for CeeDee Lamb to be the No. 1 WR. He was only able to corral two of his 11 targets for 29 yards in Sunday’s 19-3 loss to the Buccaneers.
Now that Dak is on the shelf for weeks, will Cooper Rush will be able to find him multiple times a game?
Only time will tell.
