    Dallas Cowboys Cooper Rush Delivers A 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 win really tested 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.

    “It’s just like a dream come true,” Rush said during post-game interviews.

    He went 24 for 40 with 325 yards and 2 touchdowns, including a 5-yard fade to Amari Cooper with 51 seconds left, as reported by 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 comfortable being on the field,” Rush expressed. “From the huddle to the line of scrimmage, it didn’t feel overwhelming. Even though I haven’t played much, practicing against NFL players every day, especially our talented defense, prepared me well. The game speed never felt too fast, and I felt confident in leading the team.”

    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 to progress and get on the field,” Prescott said. “We made a call at the end to have a chance to win without me playing, allowing me to focus on getting healthy and prevent any further injuries.”

    “There was never a moment when I thought he was overwhelmed or anxious. That’s Coop,” Prescott said. “He’s always composed and consistent, never too excited or down. It was evident tonight,” Prescott added.
