Dak Prescott stands behind Dez Bryant: He should always be a Cowboy
The Cowboys are officially out of postseason contention after a 21-12 defeat to the Seahawks Sunday at AT&T Stadium.
After winning the NFC East last season, the Cowboys and Dak Prescott have been in a sophomore slump. Prescott went 21 of 34 for 182 yards and two interceptions, including a pick-six by Justin Coleman early in the third quarter. He’s been out of sync with Dez Bryant all season and their frustration shows.
We’re still working through how he wants me to play, and how he wants the defensemen to play. I’ve been watching guys that have been here a while [like Ryan McDonagh and Marc Staal], and there are elements in their game that I’m trying to incorporate into my game, said Shattenkirk. They play different defensively than I’m used to, but it’s something that I like — it’s aggressive. Intrinsically, I haven’t gotten it to become a natural instinct yet.
Whenever I come out to go to the NFL, I think I’d be honored to play for any team, Darnold told reporters Wednesday, via ESPN. It’s been a dream of mine for such a long time to play in the NFL. Any team that would want to give me that opportunity to be a part of their organization, it would mean the world to me.
Darnold’s comments came after UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen said he would prefer to be a lower pick at the right team than a higher one at the wrong team Saturday. Rosen added he would rather play for the Giants over the Browns, and if Cleveland closes in on him, his decision to play in the NFL next season could change.
Cleveland (0-15) secured the No. 1 pick in April’s draft for the second straight year following a loss to the Bears Christmas Eve. The Browns will get one last shot at a win when they close the regular season Sunday in Pittsburgh against the playoff-bound Steelers.
Notre Dame receiver Miles Boykin lived up to Brian Kelly’s expectations.
The Fighting Irish’s head coach told the junior during a practice leading up to Monday’s Citrus Bowl game against LSU that Boykin was going to win the MVP trophy.
Boykin made not only one of the top plays of this bowl season but one of the more memorable catches in Notre Dame bowl history. He made a dynamic one-handed grab and raced down the sideline for a 55-yard touchdown with 1:28 remaining to give the 14th-ranked Fighting Irish a 21-17 victory over No. 16 LSU.
