Cowboys Stud: Dak Prescott

As is always the case when Dallas loses, someone is going to try and say Dak Prescott choked. While it's true he couldn't get a touchdown at the end, he wasn't the one who lost this game. Prescott did what he's been doing for the past several seasons — carrying this team on his back while they make mistakes.

Prescott's only real miscue came when he stepped out of bounds on a two-point conversion but there were plenty more blunders that made it to where he had to play perfectly. There was the easy drop from Michael Gallup on third-and-three. There was the hold on Luke Schoonmaker that killed a promising drive in the second half. There was also a missed touchdown from Schoonmaker when he didn't get far enough into the end zone and Jake Ferguson didn't draw the safety away on his route.

All of that led to Dallas needing Prescott to pull a rabbit out of his hat. He was given the ball deep in Philadelphia with under one minute to go and no timeouts. Somehow, he was quickly at the Eagles six-yard line but then the offensive line gave out. Tyler Smith was hit with a false start and Terence Steele was beat for an 11-yard sack.

Despite all the issues, Prescott had 374 yards with three touchdowns and no turnovers. He did enough to win and was an absolute stud on Sunday.
