Cowboys backup quarterback Cooper Rush has stepped in admirably since Dak Prescott went out with a fractured thumb.

Dallas has won each of the past two games with Rush leading the offense, including a second half rally vs. the Giants on Monday night.

On Tuesday, star running back Ezekiel Elliott tweeted out a new nickname for the undrafted veteran: "Cooper Clutch."

With Dak reportedly healing faster than expected, it'll be interesting to see how the Cowboys handle the QB situation if Rush continues to win.

Jerry Jones already put it out there that Rush has "the makeup of a top quarterback" and would welcome a QB controversy.
