1. The confidence of Dak Prescott

To add a little positive spice to this game, the 0-4 Giants will challenge Dak Prescott and his 41-27 regular-season record. His 1-3 record in 2020 doesn’t say much, but truthfully, the highlight of the year has been the quarterback who has given daylight to a team cloaked by a black hole.

Prescott is shooting at a 68.2 completion percentage, a career-best thus far. He’s also averaging 8.4 yards per attempt, which is also a career-best.

Overall, the quarterback has nearly 1,700 passing yards, nine touchdown passes, three rushing scores, a 102.6 quarterback rating, and is averaging a whopping 422.6 yards per game.

Here’s the thing: Can Dak Prescott seal a game when it’s all on the line? The Dallas Cowboys are depending on his magic, which is very Tony Romo like. When it mattered most in the end, Prescott closed the Seattle Seahawks and Cleveland Browns with an interception pass.

Of course, this isn’t all on Dak Prescott. But if we’re being honest, the Cowboys are putting it all on shoulders. With that in mind, a lot of his throws last week were touched by Cleveland defenders. Prescott walked away with only one INT, but he must find his touch or else.
