6 major takeaways from the Cowboys’ statement win over the Vikings
3. This was the best Dak Prescott has looked since last year
Last season, Prescott ended the regular season on a tear. In his final three games, he totaled over 850 passing yards, 12 touchdowns, and no interceptions. He looked the best he had all season, and he played a lot like that against the Vikings on Sunday.
No. 4 finished the contest 22-of-25 with 276 passing yards, two touchdowns, no interceptions, and 16 rushing yards, most of which came on a third-down conversion. He looked poised and clearly made no mistakes with his throws.
Given his yards-per-attempts as well, these were no dink-and-dunk passes. He was making accurate throws down the field. On passes over 20 yards, the signal-caller went 3-3 for 130 yards and a touchdown.
To further dive into his deep passes, in Week 11, Prescott was the second-highest graded passer on deep throws according to PFF, with a 96.7 grade. He looked great. He looked more comfortable than in recent weeks, so hopefully, this is something he can keep going into the Thanksgiving matchup against the New York Giants.
