Dak Prescott named NFC offensive player of the week

Dak Prescott got a last-minute boost for the contract his owner calls “imminent.”

The Cowboys quarterback was named NFC offensive player of the week for his performance in a win over the Giants.

Playing with a still-getting-up-to-speed Ezekiel Elliott, Prescott completed 25-of-32 passes for 405 yards and four touchdowns.

He also became just the third player in league history to record a perfect 158.3 rating with more than 30 pass attempts.

While the conventional wisdom is that the Cowboys can’t win consistently depending on his throwing as opposed to Elliott’s running, Prescott gave a glimpse of the possibility — and possibly put a few more bucks in his pocket.

  1. Whether you like it or not, games against lesser opponents do count. Just look at the Patriots who have been fortunate enough to play the inept Jets, Dolphins and Bills twice each year during their incredible run.

  2. “He also became just the third player in league history to record a perfect 158.3 rating with more than 30 pass attempts.”

    When will the NFL get better at math? If a QB doesn’t complete every pass how does he get a perfect rating? Completing 25-of-32 passes for 405 yards and four touchdowns is great but it isn’t really “perfect” is it?

    Dak vs NFC East

    5-2 vs Giants
    5-1 vs Redskins
    4-2 vs Eagles

    Yeah, keep pretending he sucks, NFC East doormats. It’s adorable!

    I have no problem with Dak, but you aren’t mentioning Dak has had probably the best running back & offensive line in the league. Plus the Giants & Redskins are usually mediocre to bad. You should show his stats as opposed to win-loss record. Like dak’s completion percentage & TD passes, etc. Win & Loss record in that division is directly related to Dallas being more talented overall than Dak being a great QB.

    The rest of the NFC East”

    You understand that his record against the rest of the NFCE is 14-5, right?

    Mumfio hilarious how you say that Dak has the better team and leave out the fact that he is an integral part of that “better team”. His record against the Eagirls is 4-2. His career passer rating is 97.4 and his career INT% (1.7) is second best in NFL history so I’m not sure what you’re talking about.
