The Dallas Cowboys were without Ezekiel Elliott and Tyron Smith on Sunday and Dak Prescott struggled during a 27-7 loss to the Atlanta Falcons.
Enter Howard Eskin.
The #cowboys have real problems as we saw in loss to #falcons. Without RB Zeke Elliott QB Dak Prescott is not that special. As it turns out Jerry Jones should have let Elliott take his suspension early in the season. #eagles next Sunday night. @SportsRadioWIP

And in a Terrell Owens-like “that’s my teammate, that’s my quarterback moment,” Cowboys wide receiver Cole Beasley had his second-year quarterback’s back.
This is the dumbest shit I've ever heard. Dak is that dude. https://t.co/bnlUlYsWkV

Let’s get these two in a ring ASAP, I’d love to see that!
With Elliott suspended, Prescott will have the opportunity to put the team on his back and show if he’s worth all of the hype. The Eagles have dealt with a plethora of injuries, but that hasn’t stopped Carson Wentz from excelling. If Prescott wants to be in the same class, he must do the same. Until then, people like Eskin will continue to believe that Prescott isn’t that special and a product of the excellent offensive line and Zeke.
Prescott was sacked eight times Sunday, including six by Adrian Clayborn, who was lined up opposite of Smith’s replacement Chaz Green. Prescott was 20-of-30 for 176 yards.
