How Dak and Zeke saved the Dallas Cowboys

Week 1 of the NFL season began and it felt like the same story every year. Tony Romo dropped back, Romo escaped pressure and was hit! And he went down… Everybody laughed at the Cowboys’ luck. Another year, another Romo injury, another losing season. What everyone forgot to anticipate was how deceivingly good their backup rookie quarterback Dak Prescott was. Prescott was unable...

Report: Prescott to start through Week 8, possibly beyond

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is not in danger of losing his starting job during the bye week, and the rookie may be able to keep it even longer than that. Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Prescott will start in Week 8 against the Philadelphia Eagles. Tony Romo has yet to return to practice, and it’s possible he won’t be ready by Week 9, either. #Cowboys...

Ezekiel Elliott has solid chance to become first rookie to rush for 2,000 yards

The Dallas Cowboys made a move against modern draft wisdom in the 2016 NFL Draft when they selected Ohio State star Ezekiel Elliott with the fourth overall pick. Jerry Jones broke the current trend of passing on running backs high in the draft that has taken over the league, and the decision has paid huge early dividends so far.

Jerry Jones: No timeline for Prescott vs. Romo decision

Report: Cowboys teammates support Dak Prescott keeping starting job

Once Tony Romo is at 100 percent, the Dallas Cowboys are going to have a decision to make. It’s a decision that could impact not only the remainder of the 2016 season, but the long term as well. When Romo went down with a broken bone in his back during the preseason, the assumption was that he’d regain his starting job when he returned. Now, five weeks into the regular season...

Jerry Jones: Tony Romo is our No. 1 quarterback
