Dak Preston was not present on Sunday night. However, it was no trouble for the Dallas Cowboys. Cooper Rush led Cowboys to victory at the Minnesota Vikings with a score of 20-16.
Dallas’ record is 6-1, which is one of the best in the NFC. They have also lost four games to the Philadelphia Eagles second-place team, who are now 3-5. Each of the Washington Football Team and New York Giants are both 2-6.
Rush did a great job on Sunday. He completed 24-of-40 passes for 325 yards, 2 touchdowns and one interception. Rush spread the ball, connecting with CeeDee Lamb, Amari Cooper, and Cedrick Wilson to gain at least 84 yards. Wilson and Cooper each caught touchdown passes.
This Sunday’s game against the Denver Broncos is a winnable one for Prescott. Although there is speculation that Prescott could be given another week off by Dallas to heal his injured calf muscle, owner Jerry Jones said that he believes his QB1 will still be available.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones on @1053thefan said they want to see how Dak Prescott (calf) does this week, but they have "every reason to think he'll be on the field for us this week."

Dak Prescott suffered an injury in the game-winning overtime touchdown pass against the New England Patriots. Many thought that Dak Prescott would be ready for Sunday’s game after his injury on the game-winning overtime touchdown throw against the New England Patriots in Week 6. However, Dallas decided to give him an extra week off.
The Broncos are their next opponent after they beat Washington on Sunday. The Cowboys’ offense is the NFL’s best, but Denver’s defense is 26th in DVOA. Prescott may not be 100%, but this could be another opportunity to rest. However, all parties want him back on the field as soon as possible.
The Dallas Cowboys will host the Atlanta Falcons in November 14 after Sunday’s game against Denver.
