The embattled Dallas Cowboys quarterback has always done what was best for the team and he continues to do so this season. Over the last month, Dak Prescott has been playing some of the best football of his career.

His pre-snap reads and adjustments at the line of scrimmage have been masterful. His new and now famous "Here We Go" cadence has been able to draw players offside, giving him free plays down the field, and his delivery of the football has been on the money.

And yet Prescott is still not getting the credit he deserves in a league that, for the most part, is regarded as a "what have you done for me lately?" league. Dak can't beat good teams, Dak disappears in the playoffs, and the teams he's beating aren't good.

Well, there are some people taking notice of how Prescott is playing during this stretch. The latest being New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who said this on the Pat McAfee show recently.

As we've seen over the years, praise from Rodgers is hard to come by and Rodgers going out and explaining in football terms how Prescott has raised his gameplay is a welcome sight. But people still aren't going to trust words.

They need to see stats and hard evidence on the subject. So let's take a look at how Prescott compares to the other top quarterbacks out of the NFC over the last six weeks, including Jalen Hurts, Jared Goff and Brock Purdy.
