The Dallas Cowboys dropped to 5-6 on Thanksgiving with a loss to the Los Angeles Chargers, 28 to 6. It was the third loss in a row for a Cowboys team that has really struggled during Ezekiel Elliott’s six-game suspension.

Second-year quarterback Dak Prescott has totally crumbled under the pressure of having to carry the Cowboys with Zeke out.

This was fairly predictable; Dallas attempted the third fewest pass attempts in 2016. Prescott’s rookie success was made possible by an awesome supporting cast. Now that everything isn’t perfect, he’s failing to step up. Great quarterbacks find ways to overcome adversity. Needless to say, Prescott isn’t a great quarterback. Put another way ...

In his last three starts, Prescott has completed 58 of his 88 attempts for a mere 5.68 average, ZERO touchdowns, FIVE interceptions, and a 57.0 passer rating.

Prescott’s struggles have forced the Cowboys into being a long-shot for the playoffs, and now fans are calling for him to be benched for backup Cooper Rush.

Rookie undrafted free agent out of Central Michigan University, Cooper Rush.

Happy Thanksgiving.
