In 2019, Dak Prescott had a career year with 4,902 passing yards and 30 touchdowns. Yet still, many continued to question whether or not he’s worth the price of admission.
Well in the first two weeks of the 2020 season, Prescott has continued the roll he was on a year ago. So much so that he was named NFC Offensive Player of the Week for his performance last Sunday vs the Atlanta Falcons.
Dak Prescott has been named NFC Offensive Player of the Week for his historic performance in the #Cowboys comeback over the #Falcons.
The Cowboys became the first team in NFL history to win a game when their opponent scores 39 points and doesn’t commit a turnover (previous 440 all lost). The biggest reason, of course, was Prescott. He became the first quarterback in league history to pass for 400 yards and score three rushing touchdowns in a single game. Also, he tied former Cowboys signal-caller Tony Romo for the most 400-yard passing games in franchise history with five.
What makes his performance even more impressive is that the Cowboys were down their top three offensive tackles (Tyron Smith, La’el Collins, Cam Erving). Nonetheless, Prescott engineered his 15th game-winning drive since his rookie season in 2016, tying Drew Brees and Derek Carr for the most over that span.
So far this season, Prescott has 764 total yards, five total touchdowns, and no interceptions. Also, he’s completing 68.6% of his passes with a quarterback rating of 101.7. Anyone who still has questions about this man’s ability shouldn’t be taken seriously at all.
