The Cowboys won again on Sunday and they won in convincing fashion at Lambeau Field behind another strong game from rookie quarterback Dak Prescott.
Prescott’s three touchdowns and consistent ability to move the team made two turnovers fairly insignificant in the final reckoning, but did they end the questions about whether he’ll keep the job when Tony Romo is healthy? Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is less emphatic about a Romo return than he has been in the past but isn’t saying anything definitive either way.
It’s pretty clear he’s happy about the overall situation at quarterback, though.
“There’s nothing I’d rather do than go into [the] last half of the season with a ready-to-go Tony Romo and a winning Dak Prescott,” Jones said, via Ed Werder of ESPN. “I dream of being able to make that decision. We are not there yet by the way. We are not there.”
The Cowboys are 5-1 and it’s not easy to mount a convincing argument for changing what’s working so well, especially when you’d have Romo as another option if Prescott gets hurt or sees his play decline. The Cowboys may feel differently, although a bye in Week Seven means nothing’s changing for a while.
