After a rough night for the entire Cowboys, Pope Rescott struggled quite a bit before exiting the game, completing just 14 of his 29 passing attempts for 134 yards intercepted. Prescott’s night went from bad to worse after the QB hit his thrower twice on a drive in the fourth quarter, eventually exiting the game with 6:02 left.
A worried Prescott watched as Cowboys medical staff checked his hands shortly after he jogged off the field.

Backup Cooper Rush completed the drive and the rest of the game as Dallas went on to lose the season opener to end a night that was booed by the disgruntled crowd.
