Dak Prescott Found Himself Again In Tampa Bay Win

After ending the season poorly, Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott vowed to improve for the playoffs, and boy did he deliver.

Dak Prescott threw 11 interceptions and fumbled four times in his last seven regular season games. At the time, he said come the postseason, they have to play every drive like it’s to win the game.

Dak Prescott did just that with an all-time performance in their 31-14 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday.

Prescott completed 25-of-32 passes for 305 yards, four touchdowns, 24 rushing yards and a score on seven carries. It was a dominant performance that saw him account for all of the Cowboys’ touchdowns.

“As good as I’ve seen, that’s for sure,” Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy said.

“I think like anything, he’s so consistent in everything he does. He had a couple plays there early but he was on it the rest of the evening. I thought (offensive coordinator) Kellen (Moore) and the play calling, we stayed true to what we wanted to do. I thought he played extremely well and stayed aggressive. Took the check downs. I thought he had great command of the offense and excellent presence in the pocket.”

“I got away from the way I play this game,” Prescott said postgame. 

“Got greedy. Tried to just force some throws. Tried to take the big ones. And that’s not who I’ve been throughout my career, just taking what they give me, waiting on the big shot. I think it was uncharacteristic. It was a way for me to just dial back in. But I wiped that clean, and I knew what this game meant. I knew how important it was for our side.”
