Listen to Colin Cowherd explain why he thinks the previously streaking Dallas Cowboys have absolutely free-fallen back towards earth after they sprinted out to a 3-0 start to begin the season.
Obviously playing the doormat Miami Dolphins, New York Giants, and Washington Redskins had a lot to do with Dallas’ undefeated start, but the Cowboys became a popular Super Bowl bet the second star running back Ezekiel Elliott ended his holdout.
The Cowboys have arguably the best team in the league on paper and still have the biggest names from Cowboys teams who went 32-16 the last three years behind Dak Prescott, but are suddenly in a precarious position in a loaded NFC.
Despite leading the NFL in QBR, Prescott has put up a touchdown-to-interception ratio the last three games of 2/4 as the Cowboys have dropped consecutive games to the Saints, Packers, and Jets with Dak badly struggling to connect on the same types of big plays that had propelled him into a legitimate MVP candidate the first month of the season.
Check out the video above as Colin tries to make sense of an unexpected losing streak that has the Cowboys appearing punch drunk heading into their massive Sunday Night Football showdown with the Eagles.
