Dak Prescott barely played over a three-week
Dallas Cowboys two years ago.Rust won’t be an excuse in his second playoff game against Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks (10-6) on Saturday night.Not only did Prescott play the entire game with the Cowboys (10-6) already set as the fourth seed in the NFC before a 36-35 win over the New York Giants Michael Jordan Jersey , he had just the fourth game in his three seasons with at least 40 attempts and a career-high four touchdown passes.“We can definitely build on this,” said Prescott, who was 27 of 44 for 387 yards, capped by a 32-yard score to Cole Beasley on fourth down and a 2-point conversion pass to Michael Gallup. “This was not meaningless to me. It wasn’t meaningless to any of the guys that played or even to the guys that didn’t play.”Part of the reason it wasn’t meaningless to Prescott is that he remembers the slow start in a divisional loss to Green Bay after the 2016 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year combined with fellow first-year sensation Ezekiel Elliott to lead the Cowboys to an NFC-best 13 victories.Because an 11-game winning streak had the Cowboys cruising to the NFC East title, Prescott played just two series of a loss at Philadelphia in the regular-season finale going into the playoff bye. Dallas fell behind 21-3 in a 34-31 loss to the Packers that eliminated them.This year, the Cowboys had to revive their postseason hopes after a 3-5 start http://www.raidersauthorizedshops.com/au...row-jersey , doing it with a five-game winning streak and going 7-1 in the second half. While Elliott sat as expected against the Giants, the offense kept the momentum alive with one of its best showings of the season.“I wouldn’t give anything for those last two quarters,” owner and general manager Jerry Jones said. “I wouldn’t give anything for this team and Dak to experience that comeback and handle that adversity, come back and make those plays.”Two Pro Bowl linemen also sat against the Giants in left tackle Tyron Smith and right guard Zack Martin. Both are expected to play against the Seahawks, although Martin had the more challenging situation all season while dealing with a left knee injury sustained in a preseason game.The defense was without lineman Tyrone Crawford a week after he injured his neck on the second play of a division-clinching win over Tampa Bay. Crawford could be available against Seattle as well after his neck checked out OK at a hospital.While the Cowboys gave up at least 30 points for the first time this season, the unit that carried them through several wins came up big by forcing four straight incompletions from Eli Manning after Prescott’s go-ahead sequence.“We treat every game like it’s our last one Zach Brown Jersey , and we’re going to be in full attack mode no matter what,” linebacker Leighton Vander Esch said. “No matter what the circumstances are, we’re just going to carry on into the playoffs.”Prescott led the Cowboys to go-ahead scores twice in the fourth quarter against the Giants. It was actually pretty similar to his one playoff experience against the Packers, when he engineered two tying drives in the final five minutes before Aaron Rodgers took the Packers to the winning field goal on the final play.The Dallas quarterback just as vividly remembers spending most of the game trying to recover from the early deficit.“I think you can almost take that year for an example how important the momentum is,” Prescott said before beating the Giants. “I think that’s what you can turn to as a reason on why we should play and how important it is that people just keep their feet moving and stay active.”That mission was accomplished even before the Cowboys secured their 10-win season. Rams coach Sean McVay has greatly exceeded expectations in his first two years on the job. That gives the Rams a bargain over the next three years, as he continues to work through a deal that is believed to pay him $4 million per year.The Rams seem to be willing to enjoy that bargain Shareef Miller Jersey , at least for now.Via Gary Klein of the , Rams COO Kevin Demoff recently said that the team will be focusing for now on contracts for the guys who are on the field, explaining that he’s “making sure the players we need to extend are done.”Still, there’s no doubt the Rams want McVay over the long haul. And they should.“Becoming a face of the team in Los Angeles and, really, becoming one of the faces of the NFL Devin Bush Jersey , is everything you hope when you go into the head coaching process,” Demoff said. “Not just to find a great coach but to find an amazing leader and steward for our franchise.“As you go to make sure that your [core] players are here for a long time, obviously the goal is to make sure your coaching staff is here a long time. . . . Our goal is always to make sure this group can stay together for as long as possible.”That’s fine, but the idea that the Rams can’t extend McVay until they extend their key players is a bit flimsy. There’s no salary cap for coaches, so that’s no impediment to rewarding McVay. The reality is that the Rams have gotten a great return on their investment in McVay, and they feel no need to increase that investment. But they need to be careful http://www.steelersauthorizedshops.com/a...son-jersey , because there’s also no franchise tag for coaches, and McVay should consider finishing out the next three years, becoming a free agent, and then striking it rich as the highest-paid coach in NFL history.
