Cowboys Stud: Dak Prescott, Quarterback

As the quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys, Dak Prescott will always have more than his share of critics. Oftentimes, those critics target him unfairly but Prescott knows it comes with the territory and says it doesn't matter to him what outside voices say.

This Sunday, Prescott had a game that even his toughest critics can't judge too harshly. Despite early struggles from the offensive line, Prescott was absolutely dealing. He capped off their first drive with a dart to Jake Ferguson, who pulled the pass in for an 18-yard touchdown.

He had two more touchdowns in the first half, hitting CeeDee Lamb on both of those.

In addition to his work through the air, Prescott used his legs wisely. He moved around in the pocket well and took off for 19 yards on four attempts. That might not sound like a lot but the runs were typically for a first down and made the Rams pay for locking up the wideouts.

Prescott did have one pass he would surely love to have back, which was when he tried to force a pass to Sean McKeon near the goal line. The pass was batted into the air and with so many defenders around, it was easily picked off by Jordan Fuller.

Despite that one play, he put on a clinic in this one and was a huge reason the score was so lopsided.
