'Cooper Clutch' as QB Rush stays perfect for Cowboys

 Cooper Rush shrugs at what he calls “QB win stats,” seeming to skip the logic that it's the most important measure of a quarterback.

Winning is all Rush has done for the Dallas Cowboys in four games as an injury replacement for Dak Prescott, including three times this season after Prescott fractured his right thumb.

The first of the 2022 victories came in Week 2 against defending AFC champion Cincinnati. Now Rush is set for his fifth career start Sunday at the Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams (2-2).

No biggie. Just another chance to pad his “QB win stats,” and join four other undrafted quarterbacks who started their careers 5-0, including Pro Football Hall of Famer Kurt Warner.

“I've kind of said it all along,” All-Pro right guard Zack Martin said. “He stays like this all the time. I think that confidence is still building in him, and he's done a great job.”

To Rush's point, though, the Cowboys haven't been winning with offense. In fact, last year's No. 1 scoring offense is tied for the fewest touchdowns in the NFL through four weeks with six.
