Mike McCarthy has words for Cooper Rush

That's two straight wins with Rush under center.

The Dallas Cowboys are now 2-1 in the 2022 NFL Season thanks to last night's victory over the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium, meaning that backup quarterback Cooper Rush is now 3-0 in games he's started in place of the injured Dak Prescott over the course of his career. 

Of course, Prescott continues to be on the shelf after suffering a hand injury in Week 1 against Tampa Bay; his initial projection of time missed was set around eight weeks, though that remains a fluid situation.

In the meantime, Rush is the man for the Cowboys moving forwards. 

"Well, he doesn't get rattled," coach Mike McCarthy said of Rush in his postgame remarks. "…He's the same, every day. So consistent. But yeah, he's playing good football right now. I'm glad to recognize him for it. He's giving us the boost to just keep playing on offense."

"Yeah, that's the job," Rush said. "You've got to come in and you've got to play well every week. That's how this league works at every position. Week-in and week-out you've got to show up and you know we were able to build some momentum last week and it carried into this week, and we just don't hurt ourselves and keep staying on track and making plays, I think we'll do alright."

Rush finished the night against New York by going 21-of-31 passing for 215 yards and a touchdown with no interceptions.
