Dallas Cowboys’ Dak Prescott proves why he is one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL

Prescott became the first quarterback in NFL history to pass for 400+ yards and rush for three TDs in a single game. Furthermore, he is the fourteenth quarterback in NFL history to rush for at least three TDs in a single game, and the first since Russell Wilson, who did it in 2012.

After throwing for 400+ yards on Sunday, Prescott equaled franchise legend Tony Romo with the most 400+ yards game in the team’s history with five. He can overtake the former Super Bowl-winning quarterback in that statistic this season. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones might just make Prescott one of the highest-paid quarterbacks in the league after tonight’s performance, and rightly so!

Here’s how Twitterati reacted to Dak Prescott’s magnificent individual display

Coach Mike McCarthy has a lot of work to do in the coming weeks. Fans will hope Dak stays fit this season because he will be crucial for the Cowboys from now on.
