Cowboys vs Chargers Preview

The Cowboys haven’t played since September 9, when they almost handed Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers a loss. Instead, Dallas wound up with the ‘L,’ falling 31-29 after a hard-fought game.

Dak Prescott answered all questions about his recovery from ankle surgery, completing 42 of 58 passes for 403 yards, three touchdowns and an interception. He didn’t get much help from the run game, either, as star back Ezekiel Elliott had just 33 yards on 11 carries.

“No, I didn’t think that I would have rust, to be honest,” Prescott said about his return to action this week, via the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “I mean I’ve been preparing for that game and preparing for this season since I don’t know, February. Maybe even January, the moment I started walking again and got my foot back on the ground.”

Prescott will be going up against a hungry Chargers ‘D’ that has found new direction under first-year head coach Brandon Staley. Los Angeles is coming off a 20-16 win over the Washington Football Team Week 1. Quarterback Justin Herbert picked up right where he left off last year, going 31-47 for 337 yards, a touchdown and an interception against a formidable defense led by Chase Young.

Herbert got some help from a defense led by Joey Bosa that allowed just 259 total yards all game. The Chargers defense was also solid on third down, allowing just three first downs on 10 attempts, and that made a huge difference in the game.

They face a huge challenge against Prescott this week, however.

“This guy has been a proven guy for a long time,” Staley said about Prescott, per the Chargers’ official website. “Since he’s played for the Cowboys, their record speaks for itself with him as the quarterback — and their production. Going back to last year, they were number one in the NFL in total offense the year … he lit it up Week 1 against the defensive Super Bowl champions, against a defense that’s really, really good. His track record speaks for itself. He’s a guy that’s very worthy of that contract. He’s an elite competitor. We’re excited to be able to face him this week.”

It will be an intriguing matchup, to be sure, but a huge issue for Dallas emerged this week when pass rusher DeMarcus Lawrence went down, while Randy Gregory is also out, as he’s in COVID protocols. With virtually no pass rush, Herbert could have a huge day.
