Dak Prescott: Cardinals Defeat ‘A Wake Up Call’

Dallas quarterback Dak Prescott says the Cowboys need to ‘fix’ their red zone inefficiencies after their first loss of 2022.

After impressing with two opening wins, the Cowboys came back to earth on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals. The previously winless Cardinals beat them 28 – 16.

The Dallas Cowboys were 1 – of – 5 in the red zone, and Dak Prescott described the defeat as ‘humbling’.

“That’s the challenge of this league, you know, every game is so unique to the specific matchups and so forth. This has been a rough week on a lot of fronts,” said head coach Mike McCarthy. 

“I think the amount of adversity you go through, your preparation process, and we didn’t have enough today. The discipline and the penalties.

“We have to learn from this. It’s going to be an every-week challenge.”

“Y’all put us on top of the world,” Dak Prescott said. 

“We knew who we are. In that same sense, I’m sure the media got what it wanted. For us, there hadn’t been but one undefeated team. It sucks, it’s humbling, but to say it’s a wake-up call, we knew we had a lot of adversity and we just didn’t get it done. It just goes back to myself, the offense, in the red zone. We get better there, we win this game. But we’ve got to fix that area, period.”

“We’re staying in the moment. That’s who we are. That’s who this team is,” said Prescott.

“This was a humbling loss in that sense. Obviously, we’ve had a lot of adversity just throughout the week. It wasn’t easy. Nobody’s making excuses. I thought we had a great opportunity to come in and, even with the adversity, get a win. Obviously, every week you’ve got to reset and refocus, and honestly, it’s a little bit easier after a loss. So, there’s not going to be any worries about that.”
