So, Dak Prescott, who wears No. 4 and was a fourth round draft choice, has now led the Dallas Cowboys to four straight victories.
Prescott has completed 107 of 155 passes for 1,239 yards and, yes, four touchdowns. He also has run for two touchdowns.
Sunday, he completed 18 of 24 throws for 227 yards and a touchdown in a 28-14 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals.
He has set an NFL record for most passes without an interception by a rookie. He still hasn’t thrown one.
It is looking more and more like the Cowboys will have a difficult decision to make with Tony Romo returns from his back injury, which is expected later this month.
Question: Can you sit a quarterback who is playing – and winning – like Dak Prescott?
One more thought: Monday morning quarterbacks are spending much time trying to discern what is wrong with Mississippi State in this first season A.D. (after Dak).
By far the biggest difference in these Bulldogs and the Dogs who won so many games over the past few seasons is this: They don’t have Dak, who clearly is one of those guys who not only plays well himself but makes all those around him much better.
