Cowboys QB Dak Prescott has lost no confidence after loss to the Saints
But Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is still riding high after the two-point road loss, saying the team still feels good about itself.
“We’ve got a great team,” Prescott said, according to Todd Archer of ESPN.com. “There’s no confidence lost with this loss, I can promise you that. There’s a lot of things we’ll take from this that we’ll learn from and become a better team because of it. That’s the most important thing.”
After a red-hot first three games, Prescott came crashing back down to earth against the Saints, as he completed 22 of his 33 passes for 223 yards and an interception.
Dallas also could not get its run game going, as Ezekiel Elliott logged just 35 yards on 18 carries.
The Cowboys’ defense did a great job and kept the club in position to win the game with some big-time stops in the second half, but the offense was unable to deliver.
Given that the combined record of Dallas’ first three opponents is 2-10, some have questioned if the Cowboys were really as good as their 3-0 record indicated heading into the game in New Orleans or if they were just a product of a weak schedule.
To be fair, you can only play who is on your slate, and Dallas did win 10 games last year, so most likely, the Boys are for real, but they did fail their first real test of the season.
The Cowboys will head home to host the Green Bay Packers next Sunday.
