1. Dak Prescott has 4 touchdown passes

Dak Prescott led a sensational final drive in the loss to Miami and hit Brandin Cooks for what could have been a game-winning touchdown. Had the defense held, the narrative would have been how Prescott and the Cowboys finally proved they could get it done on the road. Since they didn't hold, it went back to their struggles.

Prescott said as much after the game, openly discussing his frustrations. He added that they had one more road game to try and figure things out before the playoffs but that doesn't mean he's looking past Week 17. He's also not expecting things to be easy just because they're 7-0 at home, saying they're going to be facing a great team.

"It's about moving forward and understanding what's ahead of us" Prescott added via Patrik Walker of DallasCowboys.com. "And we're gonna improve again and, obviously, we're going back home on Saturday and it's a place we've been winning but we've got to make sure we can't lean on the fact we're at home. This isn't gonna be easy. This is another great team coming in."

Prescott has been laser-focused all year with 3,892 yards and 30 touchdowns — against just seven picks. He's also completing 68.4 percent of his passes. On Saturday night, look for more dominance from Prescott as they take on the Lions, who aren't especially strong against the pass.

Detroit is 23rd in the league in pass defense and 25th in touchdowns surrendered through the air. That should lead to another huge night as this final bold prediction has Prescott throwing four more touchdowns.
