Last week, I predicted the final score of the Cowboys-Packers game would be a 21-24 victory for the Cowboys. Dallas scored 24 points, but they did so in complete desperation after getting run over in the first half. The game went terrible for the Cowboys on Sunday. A pass deflected off of Amari Cooper’s...

Neither one of these things happened. Prescott and the offense looked flat and frankly brought back memories of last year’s group....
