Dak Prescott’s rookie season will go down as one for the ages.
Another Cowboys game means another NFL rookie record, and most importantly for the former Mississippi State star, another Dallas victory.
Prescott’s Cowboys won their ninth consecutive game under his leadership on Sunday, beating Baltimore 27-17. And as usual, Dak was outstanding.
He completed 27-of-36 passes for 301 yards and three touchdowns. No interceptions.
The multi-touchdown performance allowed him to join some elite company in the NFL record book. It was his fifth consecutive game with at least two touchdown passes, which ties a record held by both Dan Marino (1983, Dolphins) and Russell Wilson (2012, Seahawks).

Prescott leaned on star WR Dez Bryant, finding him twice for touchdown connections on Sunday. It was Bryant’s first multi-TD game since 2014.

With former starting QB Tony Romo now clearly in the backseat, the Cowboys have won 9 of 10 games under Prescott’s leadership. It’s still hard to believe that the former Bulldog lasted into the fourth round of the NFL Draft after seeing how well he has performed in his first year as a professional.
The national media continues to love Prescott, and he seems to be able to do no wrong. He even received praise for picking up a cup after missing the trashcan on the sidelines on Sunday:
