That overthrown deep pass to Cowboys WR Michael Gallup? Not all on QB Dak Prescott

Remember that deep pass down the right sideline against the Saints?

Dallas Cowboys rookie receiver Michael Gallup had at least five yards on the nearest defensive back and the entire AT&T Stadium crowd saw him. So did Dak Prescott, who overthrew the pass, which instantly elicited one of the louder oh/sigh/groan sounds you’ll ever hear in Arlington.

The incompletion, however, wasn’t entirely on Prescott.

“It was a good ball,” Gallup said. “I’ve got to dig a littler harder coming out of my route. But we know it’s there so we’re going to click.”

The stop and go route on 3rd-and-10 early in the fourth quarter was set up perfectly throughout the game, Gallup said.

“We were running a lot of short stuff and knew he was going to bite on something,” he said. “That was a play. We’re going to get it, though. It’s definitely going to click one day.”

Still, Dallas held on for a 13-10 win against the Saints. The Cowboys (7-5) host the Philadelphia Eagles (6-6) at 3:25 p.m. Sunday at AT&T Stadium.

“A win like that is huge. It’s a confidence booster going into December,” Gallup said. “We just need to stay on this streak. It’s way more fun when you’re winning. We’re playing good ball right now, we just have to keep it going.”
