Former Mississippi State quarterback Dak Prescott has endured quite a transformation of circumstance during the last month.
The fourth-round pick of the Dallas Cowboys went from rookie understudy to the center of attention on “America’s Team” after starting QB Tony Romo injured his back in the preseason. Prescott has responded admirably, scoring his first NFL rushing touchdown while leading the Cowboys to a 27-23 win against the Washington Redskins to move Dallas to 1-1 through his first two career starts.
But alongside that game ball for the first NFL victory, Prescott can also note that he’s a NFL record holder.
According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Prescott set the record for the most passes without an interception in a player’s first two NFL games. His 75 attempts without an interception bested Hall of Fame QB Warren Moon’s 72 over the same time period.

While that’s certainly a stat that will please coaches and points to his ability to make good decisions and take care of the football, detractors will point out that Prescott also is without a touchdown pass through two contests.
