Dak Prescott was not going to be denied getting into the end zone on this play Monday night against the Cardinals.
Last week, quite frankly, the Dallas Cowboys were embarrassed by the Denver Broncos. The loss dropped them to 1-1 on the year and even had some questioning just how good this team really is. For the past week, Dak Prescott and company have had to deal with wondering what the hell even happened in Denver last week as they prepared for their Week 3 Monday Night Football matchup against the Arizona Cardinals.
Heading into the first half against the Cardinals on Monday, things weren’t looking all that much better. They were down 7-0 and the offense wasn’t looking that good at all once again.
Then, Dak Prescott decided he needed to turn into Superman to get his team on the same page with the Cardinals, at the very least.
With a minute in the half approaching, Prescott ran one in from 10 yards out to tie the game, but this touchdown was anything but easy. The Cowboys quarterback took a leap from around the 3-yard line, and while of course met with some resistance from the Arizona defense, he completed the perfect flip into the end zone.
After the horrible performance last week, though, this is what people wanted to see out of the second-year signal-caller out of Mississippi State. They wanted to see whether or not Prescott could put this team on his back, and at least on this play, he did.
I say “at least on this play” because his first half wasn’t really anything to write home about. In the first 30 minutes of action, Prescott is 5-of-6 passing — but just for 25 yards.
