Fans of the Dallas Cowboys are having a hard time buying into this team.
Especially Dak Prescott.
Owner Jerry Jones’ team lost an NFC East showdown 20-17 to the rival Washington Redskins on Sunday.
The offense managed just two touchdowns on the day, and Ezekiel Elliott was limited to just 34 yards on 15 carries.

Supporters of the team, many of whom were still clinging to reports Jones might trade for Oakland Raiders wide receiver Amari Cooper, were plenty mad at head coach Jason Garrett and the rest of the offense, but Prescott drew the majority of their ire.
Despite tossing a gorgeous a 49-yard bomb to wide receiver Michael Gallup, Prescott fumbled the game away late in the fourth quarter for a Redskins touchdown, which gave Washington a commanding 10-point lead.
The Cowboys had a shot to tie the game in the final minute, but Brett Maher’s potential game-tying 52-yard field goal bounced off the uprights as time expired.
