Dak Prescott’s thrown five interceptions, zero touchdown passes, failed to throw over 200 yards and the Dallas Cowboys haven’t scored more than nine points during their three-game losing streak. Appropriately, the Cowboys quarterback is perturbed.
“It’s frustrating, it’s shocking,” Prescott admitted, according to Kate Hairopoulos of the Dallas Morning News. “You look around and you see the Pro Bowlers and the talent that you have, it’s almost lost at words for why it’s happening. But it just shows you this game’s tough.”
The Cowboys have been thoroughly outplayed during their three-game skid. Prescott and the Cowboys’ latest loss came in front of a national audience on Thanksgiving Day at the hands of the Los Angeles Chargers.
Dallas’ problems on offense aren’t exclusively on Prescott.
Running back Ezekiel Elliott’s six-game suspension and left tackle Tyron Smith’s absence for two games have certainly played a role in the offense’s rough patch.
The Cowboys haven’t had a 100-yard rusher since Elliott left for Cabo, the team’s offensive line has given up 14 sacks in the last 12 quarters and Dez Bryant and the Cowboys wide receivers struggle to separate from coverage.
Amid a three-game losing streak and a frustrated locker room, Prescott is not pointing the blame on anyone. Instead, the Cowboys quarterback wants to focus on getting back to winning football.
“Look into it deeper,” Prescott said. “You must not know much if you just point fingers at the coaching staff or point fingers at anybody, really. Then you don’t know enough. Just look into it more.”
There will be people, in and out of Dallas, looking into it more when the Cowboys face the Washington Redskins on Thursday night.
