2. Slump or not, Dak Prescott CAN be outstanding
Whether you’re Team Slump or Team Franchise QB, Dak Prescott made it happen this year. The QB1 led his team to a 12-5 year, shined on many occasions, and ended the season by tying and breaking multiple franchise records.
Instead of asking to rest before the playoffs, Prescott wanted to go out there and finish the regular season with momentum. And, boy did he. He ended the game with a 151.8 passer rating, went 21 for 27 on passes, and threw five passing touchdowns. Those five touchdowns in one game were a career-high for Prescott. This gave him 37 touchdowns on the year, helping him surpass Tony Romo’s 2007 record of 36 touchdowns in a season.
Yes. Prescott didn’t play a healthy, full-string Eagles team. But he still did what he needed to do and proved that he is a competitor. The quarterback finished the year with over 4,000 passing yards.
The starting QB also found a way to make it work with Cedrick Wilson. The two were quite the duo against the Eagles. This is a great sign for Cowboys fans who were worried about what Dallas would do in the absence of Michael Gallup. Prescott was completing passes to several targets in both long tosses and short routes. He looked great.
Prescott played an integral part in the victory and helped show the NFL world that this Cowboys’ offense does have high potential.
