1. Dak Prescott continues to roll, has 3 TDs

Against the Chargers before heading into the bye week, Dak Prescott had arguably his best game of the season. He finished 21-of-30 for 272 yards with a touchdown and no picks. He added 40 yards on the ground as well and ran in a touchdown.

His numbers were solid on their own but it should have been even better. He hit Michael Gallup several times on perfect passes, including one where he dropped a dime in tight coverage which should have been a touchdown. Gallup had it in both hands but the ball bounced off his chest and hit the turf for an incompletion.

As frustrating as those drops were, Prescott was still dealing in this one. He did enough to get his team the win and had it not been for a muffed punt — charged to Jalen Tolbert who mistakenly thought KaVontae Turpin touched a punt that hit the ground — it would have been a comfortable win.

Now with a full week off to work on some of the issues while also highlighting what went right against the Chargers, Dak should be ready to roll once again at home in Week 8. 

The Rams’ defense isn’t as dangerous as it once was but they’re still a top 11 unit. Despite this, Prescott will challenge their secondary, especially since they have just three interceptions on the year. His confidence from the previous outing coupled with the Rams' lack of turnovers in the secondary will lead to an aggressive approach and three touchdown passes.
