1. Dak Prescott has no picks, Josh Allen has three

Last year, Dak Prescott led the NFL in interceptions when he had 15 despite missing five games. That became the major topic of conversation throughout the offseason — since everyone loves to find reasons to hate Dak.

This year, he's been vastly improved when it comes to ball security, throwing a mere six picks on the year. Three of those came in their disheartening loss to the San Francisco 49ers, meaning he has three interceptions in the remaining 12 games and has gone nine weeks without one including the past four games. His ability to protect the ball while still lighting up the scoreboard is just one of many reasons he should run away with the MVP award this year.

Josh Allen, on the other hand, can't stop throwing the ball to the other team. He enters this weekend with 14 of them and has just two games all year without a pick. Of course, the narrative with him is that he's a gun-slinger whereas Prescott was destroyed mercilessly for his turnovers.

In this final prediction, Prescott continues to put some separation between himself and Allen — who most would have had ranked ahead of Dak at the beginning of the year. Not only will he throw for more yards but he extends his streak of games with no interceptions to five games. On the other side of the field, Allen winds up throwing three of them to this opportunistic defense.
