Prescott completed 20 of 32 pass attempts for 266 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 30-22 loss to the Rams. He added three rushing yards and another touchdown on two carries. Prescott was asked to do the heavy lifting offensively with Ezekiel Elliott being contained on the ground (20 carries for 47 yards). The 25-year-old did a good job of spreading the ball around after it became apparent that the Rams wanted to key in on Amari Cooper early on. Despite his solid play, Prescott's season comes to an end. The third-year arm finished the regular season with a new career high in passing yards (3,885) with 22 touchdowns and eight interceptions. Still, his numbers pale in comparison to higher-end fantasy quarterbacks, as Prescott's real-life value far exceeds his fantasy output.
Prescott completed 22 of 33 pass attempts for 226 yards, one touchdown and one interception Saturday against the Seahawks. He also carried six times for 29 yards and a touchdown during the 24-22 win. Prescott completed 67 percent of his passes and connected with eight different receivers. He threw an 11-yard touchdown pass to Michael Gallup just before halftime and led a pair of scoring drives in the fourth quarter, including one which he capped off with a one-yard plunge to paydirt. In the process, Prescott became the youngest quarterback to win a playoff game in team history and now has more game-winning drives under his belt since entering the league than any other quarterback. He'll need to put on another terrific performance next weekend, whether going up against the Saints or the Rams.
Prescott completed 27 of 44 pass attempts for 387 yards and four touchdowns during Sunday's 36-35 win over the Giants. Prescott acknowledged the possibility of sitting out part of the game, but he hung in until the very end and delivered perhaps his finest performance of the season. He hooked up with Blake Jarwin for three touchdowns before a 32-yard strike to Cole Beasley, which he followed up with the decisive two-point conversion. Prescott struggled over the last two games, so this was a positive way to close out the regular season. The 25-year-old, who finishes the campaign with 3,885 passing yards, 26 total touchdowns and eight interceptions, will now turn his attention to next week's wild-card game at home.
Prescott said he plans to play every snap Sunday against the Giants, but he acknowledged the possibility that doesn't happen, David Moore of The Dallas Morning News reports. Locked in as the No. 4 seed in the NFC, the Cowboys seemingly intend to use their usual starters but likely will sub players out at some point in the game. Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott have both said they're ready to handle their usual workloads, while star pass rusher DeMarcus Lawrence took a more realistic approach, saying there's no way he will play all four quarters, per Clarence E. Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Prescott seems to be in line for the Week 17 start, but there's a good chance Cooper Rush eventually fills in at quarterback.
Prescott completed 20 of 25 passes for 161 yards with a touchdown and no interceptions in the Cowboys' 27-20 win over the Buccaneers on Sunday. He also gained two yards and scored another touchdown on four rushes. Prescott did what he had to do to keep the Cowboys ahead, flinging a four-yard touchdown pass to Michael Gallup late in the third quarter, a score preceded by a seven-yard rushing TD in the first quarter that knotted the game at 7-7. The touchdown on the ground was Prescott's sixth of the campaign, while his 80.0 percent completion rate was his second in the last four contests. Prescott's passing yardage totals have been positively pedestrian the last two games -- 206 and 161, respectively -- but his mistake-free effort Sunday proved to be enough to allow the Cowboys to clinch the NFC East. Prescott's level of participation in a Week 17 regular-season finale versus the Giants is to be determined.
