1. Dak Prescott has 400 yards passing and three touchdowns

Through two games, Dak Prescott has been absolutely dealing. With Mike McCarthy now calling plays, you can see the offense is built around what Prescott does best. They're using more movement with players in motion and even have Prescott running more bootlegs than we're used to seeing.

This has helped him get into a rhythm and they've done well with preventing the overly risky passes we saw in 2022. With this strategy, he's completed 71 percent of his attempts for 398 yards and two touchdowns with no picks.

What was most impressive was how dominant he was against the Jets — even though that's being shrugged off as "beating Zach Wilson." Prescott didn't go against Wilson, he went against Sauce Gardner and D.J. Reed who are both top-tier cornerbacks according to PFF as well as Jordan Whitehead who picked off Josh Allen three times in Week 1.

If Prescott was able to carve up that defense, imagine what he could do to the 22nd-ranked pass defense that surrendered 468 yards in the first two games while facing Sam Howell and Daniel Jones.

With no disrespect meant to either of them, Prescott is a far superior passer. For that reason, this final bold prediction is that he not only goes three games now without a pick but goes off for 400 yards with three touchdowns in a lopsided win.
