Dak Prescott: If I Play My Best Game, We’re Putting Up 50

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott, rather concerningly for the rest of the NFL, feels he can still do better.

Dak Prescott finished Sunday’s 33-13 win over the Eagles with 217 yards on 24-of-39 passing. As well as that, he had two touchdowns and no interceptions and rushed three times for 11 yards.

Over the last eight games, Dak Prescott has 23 touchdown passes and two interceptions. In his last seven games, Prescott has thrown at least two touchdown passes.

He leads the league in touchdown passes with 28 and tellingly, has only been intercepted six times in 13 games. Last season, he was tied for most interceptions in the NFL with 15 in 12 games.

Perhaps Prescott isn’t celebrating until his 2-4 postseason record improves. After the Eagles game, he said he did enough, no more no less.

“Solid enough to get the win,” he said. “I’ve told you before, I’m my biggest critic. Obviously, not my best game. … Did enough to win, but I always want to do better.

“I hold myself to super-high standards,” Prescott added, “and, yeah, if I play my best game, we’re putting up 50 out there. So that’s not going to change, and I’m going to keep pushing for that. That’s the work that I put into this thing, the preparation that I do.”

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, however, was not shy about celebrating Prescott’s quality. Jones says the Dallas signal caller is a Super Bowl caliber player. 

“Dak Prescott, for anyone that might have a question about it, for him to come in here and play like that against Philadelphia, he should have his due,” Jones said. “That ought to shut that door of questioning his ability to play in a playoff-type game.”
