Summary

Dak Prescott was a revelation in 2016. The rookie was considered a long-term project by most pundits, but a confluence of circumstances led to his starting for the Cowboys and playing so well, Tony Romo opted to retire and head for the broadcast booth. The former Mississippi State Bulldog showed poise, creativity, and precision on route to a near-MVP season. Prescott's success in 2016 led to enormous expectations in 2017, and both he and the team fell well short of preseason hopes. Every facet of the young quarterback's play deteriorated. His completion rate dropped from 67.8% to 62.9%. His touchdown rate fell from 5.0% to 4.5% as his interception rate tripled from 0.9% to 2.7%. Prescott's yards per attempt (8.0 to 6.8), yards per completion (11.8 to 10.8), yards per game (229 to 208), and sack rate (5.2% to 6.1%) also suffered. In spite of his struggles, the team remains committed to him. The team hopes Ezekiel Elliott's presence for a full season combined with an injection of new blood in the receiving corps will enable Prescott to recapture his rookie glory. If not, it'll be a long season in Dallas. (August 4)

Cowboys | Dak Prescott efficient Saturday (Sat Aug 18, 09:36 PM) - Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott completed 10 of his 15 passes for 86 yards and a touchdown against the Cincinnati Bengals in the preseason Saturday, Aug. 18.

Our View: Prescott looked better, but it's still clear that the Cowboys are going to have one of the less productive passing games in the league this year. We're also awaiting information on an injury to arguably the team's best offensive lineman - Zack Martin.
