s apart in a training camp practice [url=http://www.authenticsdallascowboys.com/cheap-allen-hurns-jersey]Color Rush Allen Hurns Jersey[/url] , including an ill-advised pass across the field to a receiver just a few yards from the line of scrimmage.Those picks, and the decisions that go with them, are under more scrutiny after the Dallas Cowboys' quarterback followed his remarkable rookie season with a somewhat pedestrian encore. And Prescott is among those doing the scrutinizing — each night at camp in the film room."When I go back, I'm being super-critical of myself, of the throws, of the placement, of where I should have went with the ball," Prescott said Sunday. "I'm tough on myself. So when I go back tonight, all of that was OK, it's got to better and this is why it's got to better. And I take my notes and I move forward."With the release of three-time Pro Bowl receiver Dez Bryant and the retirement of 15-year tight end Jason Witten , Prescott is working with a revamped group of receivers and unproven batch of tight ends.The resulting rough patches for the passing game after a week and a half in California aren't surprising, but notable nonetheless considering how the offense usually appears to be ahead of the defense with the Cowboys this time of year."The best teams I've been on are where it's back and forth all day and everybody is just competing and battling and no one really dominates the whole day," coach Jason Garrett said. "The other side competes back and challenges back and fights back. That's what we've had really throughout training camp."There's a reality facing Prescott, though.Two years ago, he set an NFL rookie record for passer rating and was voted the league's offensive rookie of the year for a team that finished with an NFC-best 13 wins. In 2017, the interceptions more than tripled (from four to 13), the passer rating dropped by almost 20 points and the Cowboys missed the playoffs at 9-7.Some will point to running back Ezekiel Elliott's six-game suspension over domestic violence allegations, which started halfway through the season just as Prescott and the Cowboys were looking good enough for another playoff trip.Others will remind of injuries that sidelined left tackle Tyron Smith for three games, a big reason the offensive line didn't live up to its reputation as one of the best in the league.Regardless, the onus will be on Prescott to keep defenses honest with the Cowboys making no secret of building their offense around Elliott [url=http://www.authenticsdallascowboys.com/cheap-leighton-vander-esch-jersey]Color Rush Leighton Vander Esch Jersey[/url] , Prescott's fellow rookie star who led the NFL in rushing that season."We have a lot of knew kinks here and there that is going to help everything else," Prescott said. "It's going to help our running game. It's going to help our play-action game out. As long as we've all bought into the offensive system, it is going to pay off."Of the two key free agents Dallas signed at receiver, Allen Hurns has missed some time with leg discomfort and Deonte Thompson hasn't practiced at all because of Achilles heel soreness.Terrance Williams, the second-longest tenured Dallas receiver behind Cole Beasley, is working back slowly from offseason surgery for a broken foot.Rookie Michael Gallup, a third-rounder who was the team's first draft choice at receiver after dumping Bryant, has shown promise in camp. That's a sampling of the collection the Cowboys hope to use to replace Bryant — and develop a rapport with Prescott."It's challenging, but it's not tough," Prescott said. "That is what you want. Those guys are going to be rotating in the game. So we have to go ahead and get in out here ... so I can gain chemistry with all of them and figure out who is a guy I can call on in that time."The Cowboys have to decide how much time to give Prescott and his new receivers in the preseason, starting Thursday night at San Francisco.Last year, with Prescott coming off his sparkling debut, he played just two exhibition games. If the Cowboys follow the same plan, Prescott will skip the 49ers game. But it would be easy to argue that the Dallas passing game needs the work."It is important for those guys to play together," Garrett said. "You want to be a careful of putting them in the situation where it's ultimately not going to be productive for your team. So you want to find your spots in practice and preseason games to get them quality work."The quality has been lacking at times in camp.Week 5 NFL power rankings: Cowboys rise, but still beyond the middle of the pack We’re four weeks into the 2018 NFL season and things are a little surprising with other teams. Who would have ever thought that the Tennessee Titans would be 3-1, for example? Big shout out to them for taking down the Philadelphia Eagles, by the way.That’s the nature of the National Football League every season, though. Teams surprise us, teams fail to live up to expectation [url=http://www.authenticsdallascowboys.com/cheap-dak-prescott-jersey]Youth Dak Prescott Jersey[/url] , and in what feels like rare cases some teams just stay the same. Thankfully the always-accurate and never-ever-wrong metric of evaluation has arrived as we enter Week 5. It’s time for power rankings, baby. Here’s how the Cowboys stacked up across the landscape of the world.SB Nation: 24, previously 29The Cowboys were near the back of the bunch over at SB Nation last week. This isn’t Lost, we can never go back there. EVER. Onward.NFL.com: 22, previously 24I don’t know about you, but the Cowboys are obviously feeling 22 in more than one sense. This is true in terms of this ranking (maybe more, no spoilers here) and in terms of their record, 2-2.Back to reality, Dallas being 22nd is pretty fair a month in. They’re starting to show signs of life which is always a good thing when you need a turnaround.ESPN: 21, previously 22The worldwide leader has the Cowboys in the early 20s as well, and they also took it upon themselves to discuss how the snap-leading rookies on each team were doing. That’s Connor Williams for Dallas. USA Today: 22, previously 27Beating the Lions the way the Cowboys did was great but not the most impressive thing in the world. It seems USA Today feels similarly despite the five-spot jump.Sports Illustrated: 19, previously t-25SI is higher on the Cowboys than anybody else, and for what it’s worth one of their voters even put Dallas as high as 17th. When you alternate wins and losses you don’t inspire people to a great degree, the Cowboys are going to have to put together consecutive wins if they want more on the rest of this season.Bleacher Report: 22, previously 27Aren’t you glad I didn’t spoil it? The Cowboys are viewed as the 22nd best team in the NFL by more than one, Bleacher Report has them slotted there as well.What do you think of the various power rankings? Are they fair? Is Dallas being at all slept on?The Cowboys play on Sunday Night Football this week so if they perform well the whole world will see it (not that this isn’t necessarily true for a non-primetime game, but you get it). They have an opportunity to kickstart the second quarter of the season. They’re going to need to if they don’t want to fall back into hot water.
