What ‘pissed off’ Dak Prescott in Cowboys’ brutal loss to Chiefs
After the Dallas Cowboys’ rather disappointing loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 11, Dak Prescott expressed his frustration to the team and issued a challenge to the rest of his teammates as they aim to bounce back in Week 12.
Prescott admitted he was “pissed off” not because they lost, but due to the fact that they did not fight back in terms of physicality against the Chiefs. With that said, he wants everyone to show what they got when they play the Las Vegas Raiders on Thursday.
“We talked about responding and somebody’s got to obviously pay for that,” Prescott said, per Ed Werder of ESPN. “So we just got to go out there in this game and show how physical we can be.”
The Cowboys struggled offensively against the Chiefs, putting up just nine points as Dak Prescott himself failed to throw for a touchdown. Dallas linebacker and pass rusher Micah Parsons did step up with his 2.0 sacks and multiple quarterback hurries, but he was the lone bright spot for a rather pedestrian showing from America’s Team.
Prescott does have a point that the Cowboys need to respond when being challenged physically. Against the Chiefs, they simply let the opponents trample them without putting up a fight.
With Amari Cooper out and CeeDee Lamb questionable, Prescott and the Cowboys need to start and finish strong in the game against the Raiders if they want any chance at winning. They simply cannot relax and let the opponents have their way, especially with the roster missing some of its best weapons.
