-      With the 'Boys playing on Monday Night Football, there was plenty of game reaction to be had following the 23-16 win at MetLife Stadium. Cooper Rush has filled in wonderfully for Dak Prescott since Week 1, and Nick Eatman gave his thoughts on Rush's performance on Monday and overall. "Sure, he might seem like the "bus driver" type and maybe that's the case. But if so, he was driving the hell out of that bus up and down the field. It just didn't seem like his "passengers" wanted to cooperate for a while," Eatman writes. [Eatman: This "Bus Driver" Thrives In Rush-Hour]

-      Michael Gallup has all yet but to return to the field following his rehab from ACL surgery, but the wide receiver said on Wednesday the final hurdle to clear the mental aspect. "The 26-year-old will instantly inject a barrel of gunpowder into the Cowboys passing attack, a unit that's definitely struggled at times over the first three games while also making just enough big plays to mostly negate the errors (see vs. NYG as one example)," Patrik Walker writes.
