Back then, reserve quarterback Cooper Rush was a relative unknown despite being with the Cowboys for the better part of six seasons.
Before the 2022 season, he played in only ten games and started one.
He did not play a single snap in 2020 because the Cowboys waived him in favor of Andy Dalton.
But four games into his 2022 campaign and the Central Michigan alumnus is now a household name among Cowboys.
He rejuvenated their hopes by helping Dallas score three consecutive victories.
Those wins maintained his immaculate record as Cowboys starter.

The NFL tweeted that Rush is the first quarterback in Cowboys history to start his career 4-0.
Even Prescott was not able to achieve that record, though Dallas went 13-3 in his first season.
Rush made one start last season, finishing with 24 completions for 325 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception against the Minnesota Vikings.
Rush’s Numbers Early In 2022
He had 19 completions for 235 yards and a touchdown in their Week 2 game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
A week later, he had 21 passes for 215 yards and a touchdown versus the New York Giants.
Finally, Rush finished with 15 completions for 223 yards and two touchdowns against the division rival Washington Commanders.
Rush hasn’t thrown an interception in his three starts for the Cowboys this season.
He has 62 completions for 737 yards and four touchdowns through four games.
He can improve his record to 5-0 if the Cowboys can beat the defending Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams.NEXT: Is Cooper Rush Creating A QB Controversy?
