Last season, the Cowboys were victims of a waiting game, explaining away losses by saying they would be better when Tony Romo and/or Dez Bryant returned. This year Dak Prescott and others are having none of it.
In a report by Todd Archer of ESPN, Dak Prescott said Dez Bryant's potential absence does not change his approach to the game.
"I don't really pay attention to who I'm throwing to," said Prescott, who has connected with Bryant 11 times for 150 yards and 1 touchdown this season. "I just go through my reads. Whoever's open gets the ball. So, I mean, hope [he] gets well, is well really, really soon, but it doesn't really affect this offense."
When you look at the number of players out for the Cowboys who could potentially return this season, it’s amazing how a different mindset can make all the difference.
"I can't say much, but I did learn from the experience that I did have last year," Williams said. "So what I can tell you is it's going to be different than what you saw from me last year."
But the offensive leader is now clearly Dak Prescott. If he can execute a win on Sunday on the road without his top receiving threat, it will be another feather in his cap.
