At this point, Dallas Cowboys superstar Dak Prescott is looking like one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL. While more than a few folks will argue that this is a known fact, there’s also no denying that the two-time Pro Bowler hasn’t really looked the part over the past year or so.
Prescott is looking to change the narrative this season, and Dallas’ remarkable 2-0 start is a massive step towards that objective.
Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott Keeps It Going in Week 2 Vs. Jets
After leading Dallas to an eye-opening 40-0 win in their season opener against the New York Giants, Prescott kept his foot on the gas in Week 2 against the New York Jets. The former Offensive Rookie of the Year completed 31-of-38 passes for 255 yards, two touchdowns, and no interceptions. Over his first two games of the season, Prescott has now gone 44-of-62 for 398 yards, two TDs, and zero interceptions.
Dak Prescott Sends Strong Message to Naysayers
The fact that Prescott has yet to commit a turnover is perhaps the most significant aspect of his strong start to 2023. This is especially true considering how he led the league in interceptions last season with 15 — a fact that Prescott is now looking to put behind him:
“Last year is last year, and it’s something I’ve left,” Prescott said, via Charean Williams of PFT. “You know the interceptions, all that, I guess when you lead the league it will never go away. But as I stated last year, every one of them has their story. But that’s not where my mind is. That’s not something I think about. Just being candid. I really don’t care about the questions about them at this point.
“I’m going out there, just trying to complete the ball, get the ball to these guys, the playmakers that we have, get it to them in space, let them go do their thing. And I’m still going to take some shots. I’m still going to not shy away from the confidence that I have and the work we’ve put in on some one-on-ones to give these guys some opportunities. But I don’t even think about that at this point.”
Dak Prescott has clearly done everything he can to drown out the noise. His blistering start will now be put to the test on Sunday when the Cowboys take on the Arizona Cardinals in Week 3.
