After the first two weeks of the 2018 season , Cowboys defense is good.We wanted to believe it heading into the season and now after two impressive showings, this is becoming more and more a reality. After holding rookie running back sensation Saquon Barkley to only 28 yards rushing and All-World receiving spectacle Odell Beckham Jr. to just four catches for 51 yards, the Cowboys defense has taken a stand. Oh yeah, they also sacked Eli Manning six times.There are a lot of reasons to feel good about this defense. For example...Despite a very unimpressive showing by the team&#8217;s star linebacker Sean Lee, the Cowboys LB group has been tenacious getting after the ball carrier. Lee missed some reps against the Giants, yet the defense never missed a beat. The combination of Jaylon Smith, Leighton Vander Esch, and even Damien Wilson have been very reliable so far.Despite the front office not trading for the talented All-Pro safety Earl Thomas, the Cowboys safeties have not budged. Not only are they not a liability like some of us worried about, but they are playing well. The Cowboys defense is top five in passing yards allowed so far this season with an average of just 183 yards against them. And they are top three in efficiency, only allowing an average of 5.3 yards per attempt, a trend that continues to get better ever since they remodeled their secondary last year.The Cowboys defense is also ranked third in points allowed as they are only giving up an average of 14.5 points per game. How is all of this happening?While it&#8217;s a collective group doing the damage, it all starts up front and right now the Cowboys defensive line rotation is getting it done. I know it&#8217;s early, but the Cowboys are currently second in the league in sacks with nine. Last year, Dallas was ranked in the middle of the pack with 38 sacks. With nine already in the books this year, there&#8217;s a good chance they improve on their sack total from last season.And it&#8217;s not just one player getting the job done. Of the nine sacks, eight different players have sacks.Defensive tackles Maliek Collins, Tyrone Crawford, and newcomer Antwaun Woods each have one. The Cowboys have a great interior line rotation going and that doesn&#8217;t even include the fact that David Irving (suspension) and Datone Jones (knee) will be returning soon.Second-year defensive end Taco Charlton has looked sharp so far this season and is showing a jump in ability that Cowboys fans were hoping for.And of course, there&#8217;s last year&#8217;s breakout sack-maker DeMarcus Lawrence who is the only Cowboys player with multiple sacks this year. He&#8217;s picking up where he left off last season and it&#8217;s becoming more and more clear that the Cowboys front office will be handing him a big check next offseason.While the defensive line has been playing great Cheap Tyron Smith Jersey , they&#8217;re not the only ones getting in on the sackfest as Jaylon Smith, Damien Wilson, and Kavon Frazier each have a sack as well. Rod Marinelli has been dialing up more blitzes and the team is making them count. With strong play from their defensive backs, maybe Marinelli trusts his guys more to handle the back end while he sends extra pressure? And the good news is, it looks like more is on the way!We have to be happy about what we&#8217;ve seen from this Cowboys defense so far. The battle in the AFC may go through Sacksonville this season, but if these Hot Boyz keep playing like they have been, post-season play certainly will be in Cowboys future.Dak Prescott saved his most-aggressive performance for Detroit, his toughest secondary matchup yet Being the Cowboys quarterback means dealing with high expectations and relentless criticism when you don&#8217;t get the job done. Troy Aikman has admitted avoiding public places like the grocery store following poor performances. Tony Romo spent years being called &#8216;overrated&#8217; by his critics while the undrafted-turned-Pro-Bowler just may be the most under-appreciated quarterback in NFL history. Nobody is spared from the wrath and the same is the case for Dak Prescott who started his Cowboys career going 18-6 in his first 24 games. Up until this past week&#8217;s win over the Lions, Prescott was 5-6 in his last 11 games. He also failed to reach 200 passing yards in nine of those games with an 8-11 touchdown-to-interceptions ratio. That&#8217;s why the importance of his performance against the Lions cannot be overstated though it&#8217;s been slightly overshadowed by arguably the best player on that field. Ezekiel Elliott&#8217;s 240 total yard performance was easily the best outing of his 29-game career. His 152 rushing yards was his third-best on 25 carries, which was only his eighth-most in three seasons. Elliott was outstanding and he showed exactly why he was drafted fourth overall. Still, in context, Ezekiel Elliott did what he was supposed to do against the NFL&#8217;s worst rushing defense... he dominated them. Even though Elliott saw eight or more in the box 32% of the time (fifth-most in Week 4), he gashed the Lions all day long for over six yards per carry. It&#8217;s certainly impressive but that&#8217;s what you expect from the league&#8217;s leading rusher by nearly 90 yards. What Dak Prescott did though was not only fantastic but also one of the most unlikeliest of feats.A few weeks ago, I mentioned that a good day for total offense is 300+ yards, and a great day is anything over 400. Passing for 200+ yards is an expectation for NFL quarterbacks. On the surface, 255 passing yards for Dak ranks 18th for the week, five quarterbacks had 400+ passing yards and eight others went over 300. It wasn&#8217;t the amount of passing yards that we should be impressed with, it was the way he got there and everything in between.Dak&#8217;s composure, the poise that we&#8217;ve all been waiting to see, returned in terms of his confidence and he looked like that 18-6 Dak Prescott again. Here&#8217;s the NextGen breakdown of Dak Prescott over these four weeksgrinning smileyak's 2018TTAgg. %Comp %Exp. Comp %Comp. +/-Pass. RateAYTSDak is clawing his way out of the slump he was in.Three weeks in Cheap Dak Prescott Jersey , Prescott&#8217;s expected completion percentage was 53.5% but he exceeded that by 9.5% which was only usurped this week by Jared Goff and Matthew Stafford. His time to throw shows that he was attempting to not hold the ball as much. Prescott was throwing well-short of the sticks, as high as four-yards short against the Seahawks, but against the Lions he was throwing it almost three yards past the marker... best of the week. Here&#8217;s where we get to the best part, the &#8220;aggression percentage&#8221; which determines how many passing attempts are made in tight windows with a defender one-yard or less away from the target.Often times those with a high aggression percentages can also correlate with quarterbacks that turn the ball over a lot such as Eli Manning or Jameis Winston; however, great quarterbacks are often mixed in that list as well. You have to be aggressive, take shots, and make tight-window throws to be among the best in the NFL. Through his first three years, Prescott ranked middle of the pack in aggression percentage. As a rookie, Dak attempted three passes of 20+ yards on average per game. That number dropped to 2.8 last season and as low as 0.75 per game this season. To see that 48% of Dak&#8217;s attempts were also of the &#8220;big boy&#8221; variety was a pleasant surprise. Considering he accomplished this versus the previously top-rated Lions&#8217; pass defense was shocking. Dak Prescott was &#8216;pea-cocking&#8217; at it&#8217;s finest.Darius Slay, Quandre Diggs, and Glover Quin are all among the top defensive backs in the league. This Lions&#8217; unit held Tom Brady to 133 yards, Jimmy Garoppolo to 198, and Sam Darnold to 206. All three of those quarterbacks would likely finish ahead of Prescott in most passing categories yet Dak outperformed all of them against this Lions defense that averaged only 152 passing yards surrendered per game. By the way, Prescott did this at the same time that Matthew Stafford carved up his defense for over 300 yards with only six incompletions.Dak&#8217;s day against the Lions showed his willingness to fight through the adversity of the last few weeks and not go into a shell against a great secondary. Dak gets criticized for not taking chances or for bad ball placement but some of these throws were outstanding. In fact, Next Gen has a stat called &#8220;improbable completions&#8221; where it considers everything from receiver separation to air yards and gives the probability of the pass being completed. Prescott only has four of the top improbable completions on the season, three of which came in this game:Tightest ThrowsImprob. Comp. %Weekly RankDak Prescott&#8217;s 255 yards isn&#8217;t going to convince critics to back off, he&#8217;ll need to prove that he can be consistent after his recent slump. As the old cliche goes, the devil is in the details. The details of Dak&#8217;s performance showed that he does have quality quarterbacking in him and hopefully it&#8217;s a sign of things to come. Without question Dak Prescott was beyond bold to save his most aggressive performance for his toughest matchup and it couldn&#8217;t have come at a better time.
