Dak Prescott Dazzles Again in Dallas Cowboys’ Home Preseason Opener
Dak Prescott is on a mission to win the backup quarterback job in Dallas. The Cowboys 4th round 2016 draft pick completed 12 of 15 passes for 199 yards and was part of four offensive touchdowns in Dallas' 41-14 lopsided win over the Miami Dolphins last night. If you combine both of his preseason games, the former Mississippi State star is 22-27 for 338 yards and four passing touchdowns and no interceptions. He also added two rushing touchdowns for the Cowboys.
"I don’t think 'easy' is the word,” Prescott told ESPN Dallas' Todd Archer. "It’s the work I put in through the week. I’ve got great veterans, great coaches and that puts me in a great position to be successful on the field. I’m thankful for that, but a lot of hard work goes in for that."
While Prescott continues to deliver on the field and say all the right things, Jerry Jones does not have to scour the waiver wire each week in search of a veteran backup quarterback. Meanwhile, Tony Romo looked good in just one series wit the starting unit. Romo completed 4 of 5 passes for 49 yards before being removed for Prescott. Alfred Morris gained 85 yards on 13 carries and also scored a rushing touchdown. As much hype as rookie Ezekiel Elliot has received, Morris could be the best bargain pick up the Cowboys made this offseason. The former Redskin star is healthy and should see plenty of carries when the regular season starts. The Cowboys are 2-0 in the preseason and they will play in Seattle next Thursday.
