Overreactions: Cowboys should bench Dak, start Romo

Dak Prescott can’t beat the New York Giants, so the Cowboys have to bench him for Romo. Otherwise, Dallas (11-2) could be one-and-done in the playoffs.

Prescott had his worst game in a 10-7 loss to the Giants (9-4) on Sunday night. He threw two interceptions and had a season-low 139 yards passing. The rookie quarterback hasn’t thrown for 200 yards in three games and the Cowboys are a combined 2 for 24 on third downs the past two games after converting just once in 15 tries at New York.

Sure, that 11-game winning streak looked nice. But now the pressure is on. Romo certainly can handle it better than a 23-year-old fourth-round pick.

After all, Romo won two playoff games in 10 seasons.
