Dallas Cowboys rookie quarterback Dak Prescott was thrown into the fire when Tony Romo went down with a broken bone in his back. He performed well in their season opener and is doing well in a rivalry game against the Washington Redskins.
In the game, Prescott is 19-26 with 271 yards through the air, but his most important play came in the third quarter. He scrambled around and got into the endzone for his first career touchdown, which also gave the Cowboys a 20-17 lead.
Prescott did a lot of this during his career at Mississippi State and was one of the biggest reasons why the Cowboys drafted him in the fourth round earlier this year. I am sure they are glad their investment in paying off right now.
Despite the team being 0-1, Prescott has looked very good and he should be able to help the Cowboys into contention while Romo is dealing with his injury.
