The play of Cooper Rush has been the surprise story of the Cowboys season so far

Photo by Stacy Revere/ The Cowboys have had a lot of surprising stories this year, but the Cooper Rush run for Dak Prescott topped the list. As the Dallas Cowboys prepare for their Sunday Night Football game against the Indianapolis Colts, their future looks very bright. They are 8-3, have a very good shot at the playoffs, and the team is one of the strongest they have fielded in all three phases - offense, defense and special teams. They have a lot of young talent and a franchise quarterback. The future is bright. So much so, that 89% of you are confident that the...

Cowboys are one of the best teams in the NFL because Dak Prescott is one of the best QBs in the NFL

Cowboys are one of the best teams in the NFL because Dak Prescott is one of the best QBs in the NFL

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports A great quarterback with a great defense can be very dangerous, and the Cowboys have it. The Dallas Cowboys are in a good place right now. After the first month, it was evident that their defense was special. Even though the takeaways regressed just like everyone said they would, this unit is still performing better as they are getting after the quarterback at an alarming rate. And while Cooper Rush did an incredible job holding down the fort while Dak Prescott was out of the office, we are now witnessing the return of offensive firepower...

Cowboys vs Giants: Writer predictions for Thanksgiving showdown

Cowboys vs Giants: Writer predictions for Thanksgiving showdown

Photo by Sarah Stier/ Cowboys fans are hopeful for a Thanksgiving win this year. It’s once again that time of year. The Cowboys are preparing for their annual Thanksgiving game. Just four days after dismantling the Vikings, the Cowboys are at home to face a division rival in the Giants, who they beat earlier in the year with Cooper Rush at quarterback. The Cowboys are 3-7 in their last 10 Thanksgiving games, but the last time the Cowboys played the Giants on this day they went to the Super Bowl. Which piece of history do our writers think will come more in handy this...

Pregame Shuffle: Cowboys vs Giants (Week 12)

Photo by Jim McIsaac/ The Cowboys have a lot to be thankful for right now, The Cowboys are coming off a complete dismantling of the Vikings and turning things around in a hurry for their Thanksgiving matchup against a very banged-up Giants team. These two teams have already met this year, and the Cowboys notched a 23-16 win in New Jersey with Cooper Rush under center. But Dak Prescott is back now, and the Cowboys haven’t lost to the Giants with Prescott on the field since 2016. The Cowboys have also become a much better team since their quarterback has returned,...

The McCarthy Chronicles: Cowboys remind the NFL who they are

Photo by Adam Bettcher/ The Cowboys response to a bad loss is exactly what you want in the NFL. Let’s turn the clocks back to last year for a moment. Coincidentally, the Cowboys had just beaten the Vikings on the road to improve to 6-1. More impressive is the fact that they did so with Cooper Rush making his first career start. For a week, it felt like the Cowboys were unbeatable. Then they got shellacked by a middling Broncos team just a week later. There was talk all week of the Broncos “solving” the Cowboys and creating a blueprint to beat them. But the...

Cowboys full-strength backfield too much for Vikings as Dallas rolls to easy win

Cowboys full-strength backfield too much for Vikings as Dallas rolls to easy win

Photo by Adam Bettcher/ The Cowboys proved they belong in the top of the NFC after a 40-3 win at the Vikings. Good things happen for the Dallas Cowboys when Cooper Rush plays in Minnesota. Last year it was a full four-quarter effort to beat the Vikings in primetime, and a Sunday a much more modest closing series to put the finishing touches on the biggest road win in franchise history for the Dallas Cowboys. The Cowboys were able to take their starters out with a short game week ahead, dominating the Vikings from start to finish 40-3 to reach 7-3 on the season. By...

Cooper Rush’s first miracle hangs over Cowboys’ return to Minnesota

Cooper Rush’s first miracle hangs over Cowboys’ return to Minnesota

Photo by Stephen Maturen/ If Dallas drops a second-straight game, last year’s win over the Vikings will definitely get brought up. The Dallas Cowboys and Minnesota Vikings tangle again this Sunday after playing each other just a year ago. Their 2021 matchup was one of the signature moments of Dallas’ previous season, a stunning win with QB Cooper Rush in his first NFL start. While many circumstances have changed since then, the Cowboys are now up against that memory in this next meeting. Dallas wasn’t supposed to win a year ago when they met the Vikings. Dak...

Cowboys at Vikings: Dallas needs to get back to being the team they were built to be

Photo by Stephen Maturen/ For the third year in a row, the Cowboys visit the Vikings, this time with Minnesota atop the NFC at 8-1. The Dallas Cowboys complete their midseason tour through the NFC North with a familiar stop at the Minnesota Vikings this Sunday, their third road game at the Vikings in as many seasons. The Cowboys have won both meetings against former Washington quarterback Kirk Cousins, and neither with their starter Dak Prescott. Andy Dalton and Cooper Rush were the winning signal-callers the last two times these teams met, with Rush’s primetime win...

Cowboys vs. Vikings preview: Fast facts about the Week 11 game

Photo by Nick Wosika/Icon Sportswire via The Cowboys game against the Vikings feels real important for Dallas. It’s a big game for the Dallas Cowboys. A win over the Minnesota Vikings, a team with an 8-1 record that is tied for the best in the NFL, will get them back on track and build confidence. But a loss, piled on top of the defeat in Green Bay, would be a very worrisome trend for a team that has big ambitions in 2022. The Cowboys were able to beat the Vikings last year in Minnesota, and that was with Cooper Rush at quarterback. But this appears to be a...

The McCarthy Chronicles: Same old Cowboys deny a chance for revenge over Packers

Photo by Patrick McDermott/ The Cowboys loss to the Packers was a vintage Dallas game in the worst ways. You almost had us, Mike McCarthy. For a moment, it looked like the Cowboys really were turning a corner. They survived without Dak Prescott, going 4-1 despite some often uninspiring quarterback play from Cooper Rush, and then thrashed two bad teams once Prescott returned. More than that, they did so while the rest of the NFC (sans the Eagles) was looking incompetent, incapable, or both. The Cowboys were emerging as one of the best teams in the NFL: their defense...
