Dak Prescott has thrown an interception

The streak is over.

Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott threw an interception on his 177th pass attempt of the season, ending a record-setting streak for interception avoidance to start a career. Prescott was flushed from the pocket on a third down and threw a ball behind tight end Jason Witten that Packers safety Morgan Burnett corralled for a turnover.

Prescott’s streak might still be alive if wide receiver Brice Butler had been able to catch a deep ball that clanged off his hands on the previous play, but it remains an impressive way for Prescott to kick off his career.

Rodgers threw an interception of his own earlier in the third quarter, which the Cowboys were able to turn into a field goal that extended their lead to 20-6. Rodgers fumbled while trying to run the ball into the end zone from the two-yard-line shortly before Prescott’s interception and his rough day continued when he missed an open Randall Cobb in the back of the end zone after the interception.

Mason Crosby came on for his third field goal of the day and the Packers trail 20-9 with 14:48 left to play.

    The Packers fans booing is the funniest thing I’ve ever heard. Next week the stadium will be empty. Most fair weather fan base in sports history.

    It was bound to happen. . . He should still remain the starter. Sorry Tony. You break your back you lose.

    Well, between this and Beckham’s bizarre behavior, I can see the next week worth of headlines here.

    Prescott is better than Rodgers. A lot better. The Packers better be scouting a quarterback to draft next year. Rodgers is done. A slump is a few games. Rodgers is beyond slump. He is looking average at best. They should have kept Callahan and started him the rest of the season to see if he could be a good pro.

    Geez. Boo much?

    Can we dispel the myth of the Packers rush defense being elite…

    so sick of the hero worship for erin munn. he is avg at best. he peaked about 2 years ago

  14. section310 says: Oct 16, 2016 7:38 PM

    This guy should be the Dallas starter from here on out. Tony Romo shall be benched. Shades of Tom Brady 15 years ago. Note: Not really comparing Prescott to TB12, just food for thought…

    Dak beat Tommy’s record for sure and set the NFL record, before he threw his first interception 🙂 I do believe…I am thrilled at having 2 franchise q/bs. Cannot wait for Tony to get his chance with this team!!! It would be about time for him 😦

    Is Rodgers still a lock for the HOF? Can you really compare him to the greats of the game like Unitas, Montana, or Brady?

  18. Ferdinand says: Oct 16, 2016 9:11 PM

    Actually, he threw two but the refs decided to call one a fumble even though the ball left his hand and went directly into the hands of an opposing player. They only called the second one an interception after he got the record.

    One of several gifts the refs gave them (that they really didn’t need).

  19. purplepackerhater says: Oct 17, 2016 1:46 PM

    Actually, no. The first one was a fumble, had it hit the ground it would have been up for grabs. His hand was empty moving forward, very easy to see…thus it was not a throw.

    At least the Packers will have one claim to fame this season.
