Lessons learned from Week 6 for Cowboys include defense still has work to do

The Philadelphia Eagles put an end to the winning streak for the Dallas Cowboys, pounding their way to a 26-17 victory.

The loss also appears to have ended Cooper Rush’s time as the starting quarterback,

 unless another injury should befall starting QB Dak Prescott. It was a job well done for Rush in Prescott’s absence,

but the backup quarterback didn’t have any answers in Week 6. This felt like the final exam for Rush and the Cowboys, who finally weren’t up to the task.

Rush shouldn’t shoulder all the blame because it seemed as though no one had any answers in this loss.

Dallas was outplayed for most of the night and made too many mistakes to win on the road against a quality team.

 Losing to the Eagles is never fun, and the loss ended an eight-game winning streak the Cowboys had inside the division.

Here’s what else we learned about the Cowboys in the Week 6 loss.

This feels silly to say, but Rush isn’t as good as Prescott, if he were, he would be the starting quarterback of the Cowboys. It’s that simple.

 which is exactly what a team needs from their backup quarterback, but rarely gets.

 The loss to the Eagles was a prime example, however, of how Prescott takes the offense places Rush cannot.

There were too many missed throws from Rush and his mistakes were finally capitalized on by an opponent.
