Noted Dallas Cowboys homer Skip Bayless loves rookie QB Dak Prescott, but even Mississippi State fans might have trouble getting on board with this.
On Undisputed on FS1 on Friday, Bayless said he’s been so impressed with Prescott, that he’d take the fourth-round pick over Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers based on how they’re playing today.
“Right now, Dak Prescott is playing at a higher level than Aaron Rodgers,” Bayless said. “I said it. Most people would say, ‘That’s blasphemous.’ But it’s the god’s truth. That’s what that is.”

To be fair, Prescott has more passing yards, more rushing touchdowns, a higher completion percentage and a higher passer rating than Rodgers, though he’s accumulated those stats in five games compared to Rodgers’ four. The rookie has also yet to throw an interception, while Rodgers has thrown three.
Prescott will get a chance to make Bayless look really smart this week. The Cowboys play the Packers on Sunday at Lambeau Field.
