Dak Prescott, Cowboys lose out on touchdown at goal line against Eagles

Dak Prescott touchdown

Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys lost out on what should have been a touchdown early in their “Monday Night Football” game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Cowboys had 4th-and-goal at the Philly 1-yard line in the first quarter with the game tied at seven. Prescott tried a quarterback sneak and there was a huge pile-up at the goal line.

The initial call on the field was that Prescott rushed for no gain and was short of a touchdown.

Replays seemed to show that Prescott had extended the ball beyond the plane of the goal line.

However, there was not enough evidence for the officials on the field to overturn their original call. Mike McCarthy lost his challenge of the no gain ruling as the officials let the call stand.

Even though they lost the challenge and touchdown, the Dallas defense quickly forced a punt. The Cowboys got the ball back at midfield and drove right back down for a touchdown to take a 14-7 lead. Perhaps all worked out anyway.

Dak Prescott wears green suit to Eagles game

Dak Prescott

Dak Prescott came dressed appropriately for Monday night’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Prescott arrived for the Dallas Cowboys’ home opener dressed in a green suit — a color closely associated with Monday night’s opponent.

A bit of trolling, perhaps? It could be looked at as a hunting outfit, at least. Maybe it’s a reply to the recent shirt selection by Eagles coach Nick Sirianni.

Prescott has a lifetime 5-3 record in eight starts against Philadelphia, though he’s only thrown eight touchdowns to seven interceptions. A big performance Monday would go a long way toward establishing the Cowboys as the team to beat in the NFC East.

Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott file joint application for ‘214’ trademark

Dak Prescott

Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott are the two biggest stars on one of the most popular sports teams in the world, and they are looking for a new way to profit together.

Prescott and Elliott recently filed a joint trademark application for “214,” which is a combination of their two jersey numbers (No. 21 for Elliott and No. 4 for Prescott). The number also happens to be the area code for Dallas, Texas.

Athletes file for trademark applications all the time, and many superstars have done it with multiple teams. We cannot, however, remember many — if any — times a pair of teammates have filed for a joint trademark like the one Prescott and Elliott are seeking.

It’s worth noting that Elliott may not be with the Cowboys as long as some expect. He’s been outplayed by Tony Pollard in the early part of the season, and Mike McCarthy was not the head coach in Dallas when Elliott signed his massive six year, $90 million extension. If Zeke and Dak want to make money off a joint trademark, they had better do it soon.

Dak Prescott, CeeDee Lamb boast about Cowboys fans turning SoFi into home

Dak Prescott

The Los Angeles Chargers may be playing in a new home stadium, but they’re experiencing the same old attendance problems.

Dallas Cowboys fans had a strong presence at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, Calif. on Sunday for the Week 2 game between the teams. One reporter estimated 70 percent of the stadium was full of Cowboys fans.

Cowboys players certainly took note of the fan support they had. CeeDee Lamb said it felt like a home game for them.

Quarterback Dak Prescott said the offense didn’t even have to use a silent snap count despite being on the road.

This is nothing new. Since leaving San Diego, the Chargers have had severe attendance issues. Their ownership group might not really care so long as the stadium is full, unfortunately.

Look: Dak Prescott’s girlfriend Natalie Buffett has custom football shorts

Dak Prescott girlfriend Natalie Buffett

The Dallas Cowboys may have lost their opener 31-29 to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but that didn’t appear to keep Natalie Buffett from having fun.

Buffett, who is Dak Prescott’s girlfriend, posted some photos on her Instagram profile Thursday from the game. The photos showed her and her mother supporting Dak at Raymond James Stadium.

One of the photos shows the cool custom shorts Buffett wears to support Dak. They have his jersey number four on the back and say “Prescott.”

That’s a nice and subtle way for her to support Dak without being so obvious. We have seen other family members of football players show off custom gear before, like this. This was a nice touch from Buffett.

Prescott and Buffett have been dating since at least last year. They took advantage of Prescott’s injury status last year to dress in a fitting Halloween costume.

The Cowboys are 0-1 to start the season, but Prescott looked good in his return from injury and passed for 403 yards and three touchdowns.

Video reveals Dak Prescott’s postgame message to Tom Brady

Dak Prescott Tom Brady

Dak Prescott and Tom Brady put on a show in the NFL’s season opener on Thursday night, and Prescott seems to believe that will not be the only time the two star quarterbacks meet this year.

Prescott and Brady met at midfield for a brief exchange after the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ 31-29 win over the Dallas Cowboys. It was difficult to hear their full conversation, but microphones appeared to capture Prescott telling Brady the two teams will meet again later in the season.

That is not totally out of the question. Both the Cowboys and Bucs looked rusty at times on Thursday, but that is almost always the case in the first game of the season. Prescott showed no signs of being hampered by his surgically repaired ankle or the shoulder injury he battled during the preseason. Brady played like Brady, with Tampa Bay’s offense looking like it could challenge records in 2021.

If not for a very questionable no-call late in the game (video here), the Cowboys might have gotten the best of the defending champs. Football fans could do a lot worse than a Brady-Prescott rematch in the postseason.

Ex-Eagles coach reveals Dak Prescott tell on offense

Dak Prescott

A former Philadelphia Eagles coach and analytics expert revealed on Twitter Thursday a tell that he says Dak Prescott has on offense.

Ryan Paganetti, a former Eagles assistant linebackers coach and analytics expert, shared a tweet about Prescott. He claims that Prescott punches his fists together on audibles to signify run plays to his receivers. This gesture apparently tells the receivers to run block on the play.

That’s not the only tell Paganetti claims to have deciphered. He also believes he picked one of Tom Brady’s audible calls as well. He claims that Brady saying “blue” represents a run is going to the left.

Maybe both men should think about changing things up. It’s not inconceivable that Paganetti has these signals picked. Sometimes it’s easier than you think to pick a quarterback’s signals, which can lead to lopsided results.

Dak Prescott shares update on shoulder injury for first time in weeks

Dak Prescott

Dak Prescott has been working his way back from a shoulder injury ahead of Week 1, and the quarterback has finally provided an update on his health.

Prescott met with the media for the first time in several weeks on Friday. He told reporters he is fully ready for the start of the season.

“I’m definitely ready. I’m excited. I put in a lot of work to get to this point,” Prescott said, via Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “Whether it was months ago, rehabbing the ankle, to the last few months keeping the feet working while I was letting my arm rest. Being out there with my brothers and do something I love.”

Prescott suffered a shoulder injury in practice on July 28, and the Cowboys have been playing it safe with him since. There has been some talk of the injury potentially bothering him all season, but it does not sound like he is concerned about that.

Prescott appeared in just give games last season before suffering the ankle injury. He threw for 4,902 yards with 30 touchdowns and 11 interceptions the year before.

Report: Dak Prescott has had no setbacks, on track to start Week 1

Dak Prescott

Dak Prescott will not have a preseason, but the Dallas Cowboys remain confident that their quarterback will be ready to go for Week 1.

According to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, Prescott has had “absolutely no setbacks” as he works his way back from a shoulder injury he suffered during practice on July 28. The Cowboys plan to ramp up his practice activity this coming week, and expect him to be ready to go for Week 1.

By the sound of it, Prescott has been feeling fairly healthy for a while now. The Cowboys are being extra cautious with him, perhaps in part because he’s also coming back from last year’s ankle injury.

In spite of the optimistic outlook, there is some speculation that the 28-year-old might not be quite as healthy as hoped. We won’t really get a good idea of where he is physically until we see him in Week 1.

Dak Prescott may not be fully healthy all season?

Dak Prescott

Dak Prescott has been slowed by a shoulder issue during the preseason. That comes on top of the Dallas Cowboys quarterback working his way back from his broken ankle in 2020. For all the optimism about his status, however, there seem to be legitimate concerns about how healthy he will be all season.

Speaking at halftime during ESPN’s coverage of the Chiefs-Cardinals preseason game, ESPN reporter Adam Schefter said Prescott isn’t fully healthy and may not be this season.

“He’s not fully back, he may not be back all season long,” Schefter said of Prescott, via Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk.

That’s not exactly encouraging if you’re a Cowboys fan. Schefter didn’t specify which injury was the biggest concern for Prescott. There’s also no easy way to find out via the eye test, as Prescott may not even play during preseason.

Prescott’s shoulder appears to be doing much better. However, if Prescott is still compensating for the ankle issue, intentionally or not, it may lead to other physical issues.
