Cowboys WR blames playcalling for Dak Prescott’s struggles
Frustration is mounting in Dallas as quarterback Dak Prescott continues to struggle, and players are beginning to place blame.
Wide receiver Allen Hurns blamed the playcalling for some of Prescott’s struggles, including his second interception on Sunday against the Houston Texans.
Allen Hurns told Josina Anderson that part of the problem with the passing game is the playcalling, including calling the playcall on Dak’s second INT on Sunday night “the worst playcall you can make against that coverage”. He also said the blocking, WRs, & Dak deserve blame too.

Dallas coaches, particularly offensive coordinator Scott Linehan, are not going to be happy to hear this. Cowboys receivers have tried to defend themselves for their part in these issues, but the questions haven’t stopped. They’re especially pertinent after Prescott threw for just 208 yards and two interceptions on Sunday night. While it’s a bad look to single out coaches, one must wonder if someone might take the fall for these ongoing issues.
