“I would submit that Case was not the reason we lost this game today,” Fisher said. “We just didn’t make plays in all three phases. We’ll circle the wagons with the coaches and look at the tape, but I’m pleased with the way Case has fought. As I say consistently, repeatedly, week after week, I’m pleased with Jared’s progress.”
But still not enough to name him the starting quarterback, even though the Rams are now 3-5 and would benefit from providing the future face of their franchise with much-needed game reps.
Keenum has thrown nine touchdowns and 11 interceptions, many of them crucial.
“The thing I’m most happy about is, I can’t believe Dak’s getting these reps,” Jones said. “To see a young guy like him get eight full games, you just Casey Hayward Jersey don’t get to do that in the NFL. Tony had to wait four years to get that kind of experience.”
In the AFC, it’s not so surprising: The New England Patriots are 7-1. In the NFC, however, the Dallas Cowboys have shaken off Tony Romo’s injury to post the same 7-1 record.
Could this be what we see in Houston come February? There’s Chris Watt Jersey a long way to go, but #PulseOfTheNation is asking:
The most likely obstacle for the Patriots, who fought off Tom Brady’s four-game suspension for another strong season, will come from the AFC West, where the Denver Broncos, Kansas City Chiefs and Oakland Raiders are off to encouraging starts.
The Cowboys, who have been led by rookie quarterback Dak Prescott and running back Ezekiel Elliott, play in a difficult division. Each of the four teams is .500 or better.

Does that portend a return to the bench for the dazzling young rookie? It could. The idea that Romo — or pretty much any other quarterback in the world — couldn’t have completed those three touchdown passes Sunday to three wide-open receivers while under no pressure at all — is crazy. Prescott deserves a ton of credit for the way he has handled his situation — far better than any of the veteran backups who failed the Cowboys in 2015, when Dallas was 1-11 without Romo. But the idea that going back to Romo would be some kind of a downgrade or rattle the locker room doesn’t hold water. Not when the rest of the team is performing the way it is around Prescott.
