Dak Prescott Career
Dak Prescott is an American football quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football at Mississippi State, where he twice received first-team All-SEC honors, and was selected by the Cowboys in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft. Prescott joined the Dallas Cowboys for their rookie minicamp, he was issued #10 since veteran wide receiver Devin Street wore his college number 15. During the first week of rookie minicamp, he decided to switch to #4 in honor of his mother, whose birthday is on September 4.
He is the first Dallas Cowboys quarterback in history to wear #4. The rookie moved up on the depth chart when backup quarterback Kellen Moore broke his right tibia during the first week of training camp and after the Cowboys could not reach an agreement with the Cleveland Browns to trade for backup Josh McCown.
After Moore’s injury, Prescott competed with second-year quarterback Jameill Showers for the backup job to established starter Tony Romo. Several reports from the August training camp indicated that Showers outperformed Prescott, showing greater accuracy and a quicker release.
However, the Cowboys coaching staff made the decision to start Prescott in the team’s preseason opener at the Los Angeles Rams. Working with the Cowboys’ first-team offense, Prescott completed 10 of 12 passes for 139 yards and two touchdowns in one half of action, though Dallas would lose the game 28–24. Prescott continued his hot streak throughout the rest of the preseason, impressing all with his veteran-like pocket poise and decision-making.
After starting quarterback, Tony Romo suffered a vertebral compression fracture during the first quarter of the Cowboys’ Week 3 preseason game against the Seattle Seahawks, and in light of Romo’s projected 8–10 week recovery time, Prescott was named the Cowboys starter for the beginning of the 2016 season.
The Cowboys placed the franchise tag on Prescott on March 16, 2020, worth $31.4 million for the 2020 season. He signed the tender on June 22, 2020. In Week 1 against the Los Angeles Rams on NBC Sunday Night Football, Prescott threw for 266 yards and a touchdown and rushed for 30 yards as the Cowboys lost 20–17. In Week 2 against the Atlanta Falcons, Prescott threw for 450 passing yards and a touchdown and rushed for three additional touchdowns to help the Cowboys win 40–39. At one point during the game, the Falcons had a twenty-point lead over the Cowboys, but Prescott’s four second-half touchdowns aided by a successful onside kick and a last-second field goal won the game for the Cowboys.
He became the first player in NFL history to pass for at least 400 yards and rush for three touchdowns in the same game. Prescott was named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week for his performance in Week 2. During Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks, Prescott finished with 472 passing yards, three touchdowns, and two interceptions as the Cowboys lost 38–31. During Week 4 against the Cleveland Browns, Prescott finished with 502 passing yards, four touchdowns, an interception, and a lost fumble as the Cowboys lost 49–38. He became the first player in NFL history to pass for at least 450 yards in three consecutive games.
