Percentage chance to make the Hall of Fame: 25%

After a season that will be considered a disappointment with a disastrous playoff loss against the 49ers, Dak has become almost Romo-like. There are many stats that I can point to that easily prove the quality play of Prescott, from 30-plus touchdown passes in his past two full seasons to an incredibly low interception rate throughout his career. He finished in the top 11 in QBR in four of his five full seasons.

However, does any of that really matter in the grand scheme of things if they don’t lead to wins? The answer is not really. While Prescott is certainly no loser, with a career record of 53-32 under his belt, the same story rings true for him as it did Romo – he has to get it done when it matters most.

Sitting at a 1-3 playoff record isn’t very flattering, and while all of the losses aren’t necessarily his fault, it has built a pretty negative narrative surrounding Prescott. However, the Cowboys QB could see many opportunities ahead to change this narrative. The reality is that he will need a Super Bowl ring or some MVP awards to put on his mantle to spruce up his argument for Canton.
