Prescott completed 26 of 36 pass attempts for 270 yards and a touchdown, adding nine yards and another touchdown on six carries in Sunday's 27-20 win over the Eagles.
Fresh off a vote of confidence from his owner earlier this week, Prescott led his team to a key division victory in a hostile environment. After a slow start to the year, the 25-year-old has begun to pick things up over his last four games, averaging 242.3 passing yards per game to go along with six touchdowns to just one interception. Not known for his mobility, Prescott has also helped his fantasy stock with 135 yards and three more scores over that four-game span. The signal caller doesn't have the greatest upside, but he could be a sneaky play against a porous Falcons' pass defense Week 11.
Owner Jerry Jones said Tuesday on his weekly radio show that Prescott remains the Cowboys' starting quarterback both this season and for the foreseeable future, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News. "Listen, Dak is the quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys," Jones said. "He's young and he's going to get extended."
After a highly impressive rookie campaign in which he displaced the since-retired Tony Romo as the No. 1 signal-caller, Prescott has regressed over the subsequent season and a half. Through eight games in 2018, Prescott has already turned the ball more often (five interceptions, four lost fumbles) than he did while starting throughout his rookie season (four interceptions, four lost fumbles). Two of those turnovers came in Monday's game against the Titans, with the Cowboys taking a 28-14 loss in that contest to drop their record to 3-5 for the season. Though the Cowboys now appear on track to miss the playoffs for the second consecutive year under Prescott's stewardship, the 25-year-old is still a major bargain as a passable NFL starting quarterback on a rookie deal. He'll be less valuable once his contract expires after the 2019 season, but based on Jones' comments, it sounds like the Cowboys intend to work out a new deal to keep him in the fold long term. Unless Prescott's productivity takes a dramatic turn for the worse in the second half of the season, look for the quarterback and the front office to engage on preliminary extension talks during the offseason.
Prescott completed 21 of 31 passes for 243 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Monday night's 28-14 loss to the Titans. He also rushed twice for 11 yards and lost a fumble.
Prescott got Dallas into scoring position on each of its first three drives, but experienced mixed results following a missed field goal to start. After hooking up with new weapon Amari Cooper on a four-yard touchdown on the Cowboys' second series, Prescott forced a throw in the end zone to Cooper on the team's third possession, resulting in an interception. While Prescott would find Allen Hurns for a 23-yard score before halftime, one of the five sacks he took resulted in a lost fumble early in the third quarter. Unable to get much going afterward, it was overall another frustrating performance for Dallas' offense, even though Prescott passed for multiple scores for the third time this season. To make matters worse, the team now faces a Week 10 trip to the defending-champion Eagles.
Prescott completed 22 of 35 passing attempts for 273 yards, a touchdown and two lost fumbles while adding 33 yards and another score on six carries in Sunday's 20-17 loss to Washington.
Prescott had another difficult game on the road and was fortunate to find the end zone for a 1-yard score after the Cowboys had fallen behind by 10 in the fourth quarter, thanks in part to his fumble-six at the Washington goal line just minutes before. The 25-year-old was even more fortunate to have finished the game at all as he took a vicious hit while trying to lunge for a first down in the first quarter. He also had his hand looked at while on the sideline after the play and reportedly was given some smelling salts before reentering but ultimately was able to stick around and keep the Cowboys in the game until the end. The 25-year-old will certainly be monitored for any concussion symptoms in the following days, but he'll have an extra week to recover as the Cowboys head into a Week 8 bye.
Prescott completed 17 of 27 pass attempts for 183 yards and two touchdowns Sunday against the Jaguars. He also carried 11 times for 82 yards and another score in the 40-7 win.
Prescott connected time and again with Cole Beasley, who accounted for 101 yards and a pair of touchdowns through the air. He notched a career high in rushing yards and scored his first rushing touchdown of the season with a 17-yard run in the first quarter. Prescott avoided turning the ball over against the vaunted Jags defense and has six total touchdowns compared to zero interceptions through three home games this season. He hasn't been quite as successful on the road to this point and will look to change that next Sunday against the Redskins.
