Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari cooper feels that Dak Prescott is being unfairly blamed for the team’s recent performance.
After their two-game losing streak, the Cowboys have won back-to-back games. Prescott’s slow play has been the focus of much of the talk lately. He has thrown for five interceptions in Dallas’ two most recent games and has posted a passer score of less than 100.0 in four out of six of his most recent games.
Cooper believes Prescott does not deserve to be held responsible for how the Cowboys are performing. This was explained by Cooper during a press conference before the Cowboys’ Week15 matchup against the New York Giants.
“That’s typically how it works,” Cooper said. “We’re doing good, he gets all the praise and he’s going bad, he gets all the blame.
“At the end of the day, it’s a team game no matter which way you’re swinging.”
Prescott has had to deal with a few injuries over the course of the year. This included the calf injury suffered in the final stages of the Cowboys’ road defeat to the New England Patriots earlier this season. The veteran passer has not used that excuse. He recently admitted he wasn’t playing his “best” ball.
Prescott and the Cowboys offense have an excellent opportunity to get back on track in the divisional matchup against the Giants.
