Dak Prescott Named NFC Offensive Player of the Week

    In 2019, 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 , Prescott has continued the roll he was on a year ago. So much so that he was named for his performance last Sunday vs the .

    The Cowboys became the first team in NFL 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 in league history to pass for 400 yards and score three rushing touchdowns in a single game. Also, he tied former Cowboys signal-caller 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 (, , Cam Erving). Nonetheless, Prescott engineered his 15th game-winning drive since his rookie season in 2016, tying 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.

    One word, deserving.


    He in no PM and I won’t pay him 40M


    Let’s see who wins.Dak or Russell Wilson

    Mike M

    Hey, this just in…Dak sometimes makes bad throws. He don’t have the arm of others…but, he’s effective and he is a big dude who isn’t afraid to get hit.. and when he heads to the endzone, he will get there. Look out defenders!

    Gary b

    He doesn’t have to be P Mahomes…..anyway who is? He just has to be good enuf for this team. Time will tell and he needs to be judged by a body of work. But that won’t stop people from making blanket statements after each game regarding Dak. The Dak detractors will find fault no matter what. I like what I see so far but alot football to be played.

    James A. Howerton II

    He’s proven he’s a top 10, if not top 5 QB in the League. Like every QB in the League all he’s needed were WRs who could get open and catch the ball. By haggling over the length of his contract, all Dallas has done is given him even more money. But he WILL get paid at the end of this season.

    James A. Howerton II

    Wilson and Prescott don’t play against each other, they play against the other team’s Defense. Even without all of Dallas’s injuries, I still think Seattle has the better D. So I predict Russell will win. And I actually think Russell is the best QB in the League because he carries the team on his back. I don’t think even Mahomes can do that if you took away all his weapons. But I am happy we have Prescott because, like Wilson, I think he’s special.

    Gary b

    Good posts James! And ur right even though the QB is the most important position, u are still reliant on other players playing well and doing their part. I like what I see from Dak so far especially playing behind this patchwork OL. However it’s just two games. While he can’t be expected to have a Falcon like gm every wk he needs to play at a high level for this cowboys team to have success this season. Not perfect but consistently good.
