Prescott completed 25 of 33 pass attempts for 305 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions in Monday night's 31-14 wild-card win over the Buccaneers. He also rushed seven times for 24 yards and another score.
Coming off an interception-laden second half of the season and a particularly abysmal regular-season finale, Prescott came out of the gates Monday night like a player focused on atoning for that stretch. He finished off the Cowboys' third drive with a 22-yard touchdown pass to Dalton Schultz before putting Dallas up by two scores with a one-yard run just past the midway point of the second quarter. Another touchdown toss late in the second quarter to Schultz, this one of 11 yards, followed before he added strikes to Michael Gallup and CeeDee Lamb in the second half. The five-touchdown effort absolved Prescott of his recent struggles for the time being, but an unenviable test awaits Sunday in a divisional-round matchup versus the 49ers at Levi's Stadium.
