The Cowboys offense started off strong in terms of putting up yards and points with quarterback Dak Prescott at them helm. Unfortunately, their inability to secure the football gave opposing teams the ability to score early and often. Their own ability to score has now been seriously hampered with the season ending injuries to Prescott, Smith, and Collins.
The Cowboys offensive coordinator, Kellen Moore, has had to get creative in his play-calling to help the three quarterbacks that have come in after Prescott at quarterback. All have differing skill sets and experience levels in the NFL, and that is a tall task for this second-year coordinator. Moore has done the best he can with what he has but the loss of those three players for the season has really crippled this offense.
That’s not to say that we should count out this offense. Last week they showed signs of life with quarterback Garrett Gilbert under center. Having Zack Martin healthy was a big deal, too. They were able to push the ball down the field and score a touchdown, something that had not been done in the two previous games. Gilbert gave this team a spark and could be just what the Cowboys needs for the rest of the season if they really believe they have a shot at winning the NFC East.
How do you feel about the Cowboys offense coming out of the bye week?
