Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott doesn’t care how bad his team looked against the Kansas City Chiefs in Sunday’s loss.
Although the Dallas Cowboys dropped to 7-3 on the season after losing to the Kansas City Chiefs, quarterback Dak Prescott doesn’t seem too concerned about the 19-9 road defeat.
Prescott did not play well in the face of the improved Chiefs’ defense. Completed 28 of 43 passes for 216 yards and two interceptions. He put the ball on the ground twice, with Kansas City catching one of those two fouls. Although Dallas was expected to return to Earth after eliminating the Atlanta Falcons last week, the Cowboys offense failed to score a touchdown.
As worrisome as this may be, Prescott doesn’t let a poor 10-point road loss to Kansas City affect him heading into the Thanksgiving Day game versus the reluctant Las Vegas Raiders.
Dak Prescott press conference: Cowboys QB is not interested in losing bosses
Dallas might have a short week, but the Cowboys host the struggling Raiders on Thursday afternoon. Next, the Cowboys have four winable division games and a date with the New Orleans Saints who don’t get good quarterback play out of necessity from Trevor Siemian. Their only tough game the rest of the way is against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 17.
While the intense struggles in Kansas City aren’t great, Dallas plays not only in the opposite conference, but also plays in the weakest division in football. The Cowboys may have fallen to 7-3, but this team is quite capable of winning 12 to 14 games. They will do the playoffs. From there, here’s the big challenge: Can the Cowboys win big in January?
Dallas has plenty of time to recover from this loss, but it leaves Super Bowl hopes in doubt.
