    Dak Prescott Closes Out a Disappointing Season

    Sunday, December 31, 6:07 PM

    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott completed 17 of his 30 passes for 179 yards and one touchdown in Week 17. Prescott had all kinds of promise heading into the season, but he struggled overall in his sophomore campaign, especially in the second half of the year. Over the last eight games of the season, Prescott threw eight touchdowns and nine interceptions. He's a solid signal caller, but not the top-10 quarterback he looked like at times last season.

    Dak Prescott Biography

    Dak Prescott is the current starting quarterback of the 2016 NFC East Division Champion Dallas Cowboys. It is not certain whether the coaching staff will allow Tony Romo to assume the starting position upon full return from injury in 2017

    In his first season, Prescott led the team to the playoffs, losing to Green Bay in a close game. He played well enough in 2016 to win NFC Offensive Player of the Year and selection to the Pro Bowl.

The next year he played backup quarterback, appearing in a dozen games. He was able to pass for 194 yards with no interceptions. Most impressively, Prescott rushed for four touchdowns despite limited playing time.

    The 2013 season began as had the previous with Prescott at backup. However, the starter, Tyler Russell, suffered a concussion injury, leaving Prescott to take over. He passed for 1,940 yards and won the Liberty Bowl MVP award.
