From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 16): Prescott will likely shoulder even more of the offense with Ezekiel Elliott facing a suspension and the Cowboys defense among the league's worst. He could vie for QB1 from here on out.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 5 vs GB (25 / 36 / 251 / 3 / 1 pass, 4 / 37 / 1 rush)

Prescott had one of his finest games as a pro against the Packers in Week 5. While the defense allowed a long touchdown drive in the closing minutes to Aaron Rodgers, Prescott was consistently impactful. Prescott had multiple occasions where he eluded pocket pressure and delivered an accurate intermediate or deep throw on the move. He has shown the ability for accurate ball placement both rolling right and left this season. Prescott's mobility is a difference-making trait especially on third down and in the red zone. Three of Prescott's four rushes in the game came in key moments from picking up a third down in field goal range to a fourth down sneak conversion to a red zone read option touchdown. While Prescott could pile up more rushing production if a focal point of his game, through more than 20 career starts it is clear Prescott is a pass-first quarterback in his mindset. Prescott staked Dallas to a 21-6 first half lead, but trailed by the early fourth quarter in a hotly contested game. Prescott's interception, returned for a touchdown, was not his fault. An accurate pass sailed through Terrance Williams' hands on a simple hitch route. With a bye week up next, Dallas can get their defense in order as the schedule softens for Dak Prescott and the passing game with San Francisco, Washington, and Kansas City following the week off.

2017 Week 4 vs LAR (20 / 36 / 252 / 3 / 1 pass, 3 / 25 / 0 rush)

Prescott has been at his best when moving from the pocket this season and against the Rams was no exception. Prescott looks to run only as a last result in these situations, fueling a number of chunk gains as a passer. Rolling left Prescott has strong accuracy, finding Dez Bryant to convert a key third down and a red zone touchdown to Brice Butler on another occasion. With Dallas' defense struggling to stop the Rams, Prescott's margin for error was small to secure the victory. Despite leading scoring drives on every possession (outside of a fumbled return) in the first half, Dallas trailed in the third quarter. Prescott's few inaccurate throws turned into critical missed opportunities down the stretch. Prescott took a big third down hit as the ball shot up in the air, turning into his lone turnover of the game. Earlier in the game, Prescott should have had another interception on an intermediate throw to Terrance Williams but the defender dropped the ball. With two minutes to play and needing a touchdown, Prescott had an overthrow to Dez Bryant, hurting their ultimate comeback effort.

2017 Week 3 vs ARI (13 / 18 / 183 / 2 / 0 pass, 3 / 16 / 1 rush)

Dallas had intentions to control the game with their rushing attack, but Prescott threw only 18 passes against Arizona for different reasons. The Cowboys run game found its rhythm in the closing minutes to salt away the victory, but Prescott was commonly forced to throw in front of the sticks in the first half to stall drives in long-yardage situations. Prescott was at his best on the move. Two of his rushes came on zone read concepts for chunk gains. Once in the red zone, Prescott kept the ball after a fake to Ezekiel Elliott, ultimately leaping over a defender at the goal line for the touchdown. Prescott's mobility becomes a larger impact as Dallas moves into scoring range has been the common theme to-date in his career. Through the air, Prescott made two outstanding throws outside the pocket to Brice Butler, both in critical moments of the second half.

2017 Week 2 vs DEN (30 / 50 / 238 / 2 / 2 pass, 3 / 24 / 0 rush)

This week marked the first time Prescott has thrown more than 45 passes in an NFL game and the second time with more than 40 attempts since his 2016 NFL debut in Week 1. The typical Dallas game script was out of the window as Denver jumped out to an early lead and did not let up on the gas pedal all game on offense. As a result, Dallas was stuffed on the ground and Prescott was left to use the short passing game against Denver's smothering pass defense. Prescott threw multiple interceptions for only the second time in his career, one being a tipped pass and the other a pick-six dagger late in the game to seal Dallas' fate. Prescott should have had a third interception, but Aqib Talib dropped one of the easier opportunities of his long career on the play. Prescott was under consistent duress in the pocket, especially when his initial read was taken away. Routine throws like slants and out routes within 10 yards of the line of scrimmage - Prescott's bread and butter - became labored due to pressure. Prescott faces another stingy defense, on the road, next week with a Monday night clash in Arizona.

2017 Week 1 vs NYG (24 / 39 / 268 / 1 / 0 pass, 3 / 24 / 0 rush)

While Prescott gets credit for the win, his game was up-and-down against the Giants. Little was required of the passing game outside of a few third down conversions due to the Giants' offensive futility. However, Prescott accuracy waned on bigger throws, specifically deep routes and end zone looks to Dez Bryant, resulting in field goals instead of touchdowns on the board. Prescott's game was not without highlight moments as his deep connection with Brice Butler down the sideline marked one of the better throws of Week 1 for any quarterback. Prescott was situational with his rushing, including a scramble of 15+ yards late in the first half to move into field goal range. Prescott, for such a mobile quarterback, was primarily a rock-and-fire pocket quarterback in this game.
