Prescott was inactive during the Cowboys’ clash against the Vikings, but replacement QB Cooper Rush seems to have fit in well in the squad as he led the Cowboys to a 16-20 victory. Rush, however, gave an incredible introduction as a starter as he finished with 24 passes with 40 attempts covering 325 yards with two touchdowns and an interception.

But since all the stars pointing at Prescott‘s return, Rush’s remarkable skills will be used again at times of difficulty. It was fortunate for the franchise to have a bye during week 7, as it gave the quarterback enough time to heal up and get back in the game after missing just one game and that too resulted in a victory.
