Prescott completed 18 of 31 passes for 145 yards and three interceptions during Sunday's 37-9 loss to the Eagles. He also carried twice for 10 yards while losing one fumble.
It was an ugly day for the Cowboys. Prescott -- accompanied by a leaky offensive line sans 2016 All Pro tackle Tyron Smith (groin) -- was square in the center of the team's offensive struggles. His three interceptions mark the most he's thrown in a single game throughout Prescott's young career but aren't the only turnovers he committed Sunday, as Prescott also had a fumble that was returned for a touchdown. Perhaps the offense is struggling to find an identity in life without Ezekiel Elliott (suspension) but, with Elliott or not, Prescott still needs to avoid costly turnovers for Dallas to contend with the league's best. He'll seemingly have more time to make better decisions whenever Smith returns. Regardless, the Mississippi State product will look to get back on track Thursday against a Chargers secondary allowing just 6.6 yards per pass attempt, the seventh-lowest figure in the league.
Missing key cogs on offense and defense, this game was a mess for Dallas on both sides of the ball. The absence of OT Tyron Smith (groin) particularly affected Prescott, as the second-year quarterback was sacked eight times in addition to the two lost fumbles. It was the second time in the last three contests that the Mississippi State product was held without a touchdown pass. Nevertheless, his rushing ability can always bail his fantasy owners out, as it did on Sunday. He continues to be a top-tier QB heading into a Week 11 matchup with Philadelphia.
Prescott completed 21 of 33 pass attempts for 249 yards and two touchdowns Sunday against the Chiefs. He also carried three times for 27 yards and a touchdown in the 28-17 win.
Prescott completed 64 percent of his passes and connected with Cole Beasley for short touchdowns in the first and fourth quarters. He also made an impact as a rusher, recording his second-highest yardage total on the ground while scoring on a 10-yard scamper to cap off a long drive just before the half. Prescott has eclipsed 252 passing yards just once this season, but his ability to take care of the ball -- just four turnovers though eight games -- and his contributions as a rusher have kept him among the most productive fantasy quarterbacks. Ezekiel Elliott will face another legal battle this week while Dez Bryant (ankle) and Terrance Williams (knee) battle injuries, meaning the signal caller could face a substantial burden next Sunday against the Falcons.
Prescott completed 14 of 22 pass attempts for 143 yards and no touchdowns in Sunday's 33-19 win over the Redskins. He also rushed three times for 16 yards.
Fantasy owners need not fear, as the Cowboys opted to let Ezekiel Elliott handle the bulk of the work due to the heavy rain falling during most of the contest. The Dallas defense also recovered two fumbles and blocked a field-goal try that gave the offense several gifts with a short field. With the weather making it hard to sustain longer drives, they settled for five field-goal attempts. Prescott will be back to his usual self in Week 9 when Dallas returns home to face Kansas City.
Prescott completed 16 of 25 passes for 234 yards and three touchdowns to go with four rushes for 26 yards and another touchdown in Sunday's 40-10 win over San Francisco.
It was the second-year quarterback's third straight week with three passing touchdowns. Prescott put on a clinic against the overmatched 49ers defense, and his teammates consistently made plays around him, highlighted by Ezekiel Elliott's 72-yard catch-and-run touchdown in the third quarter. The Mississippi State product has a pretty favorable schedule coming up, starting at Washington in Week 8.
