The Dallas Cowboys lost to the New York Giants during a Week 14 matchup, with quarterback Dak Prescott having a bad game. He missed throws and looked uncomfortable, leading to speculations that he will be replaced by Tony Romo. However, Prescoot shuts down doubters when Cowboys (12-2) defeated the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (8-6), 26-20, during a Week 15 matchup on Sunday Night Football.
According to SB Nation, the rookie signal-caller spread the ball around to get the other players involved. He made immediate decisions with the football and used his legs to pick up yards. In the second quarter, Prescott also led a 10-play, 64-yard drive and finished it off with a 2-yard rushing touchdown. He walked unto the end zone untouched.
Prescott completed 32 out of his 36 attempts for 279 yards and a rushing touchdown. He may not have the arm that both Jameis Winston or Romo does, but he just doesn't make mistakes with the football.
Even though Prescott did a great job in Cowboy's latest game, there are still speculations that he might be replaced by Romo. According to CBS Sports, many are still unsure of what Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was trying to convey, when, asked about the prospect of Tony Romo replacing Prescott, he said: "You'll know it when you see it." Even a NFL executive gave in an opinion in the hot topic at hand, saying, "Dak has won 11 games for you. You're living in the past if you make the change. Romo hasn't played at this speed for two years. Live and die by the sword."
Meanwhile, what's next for Dallas? The team will host a Week 16 matchup against the Detroit Lions. The Cowboys need to continue to run the ball effectively and complement it with play-action passes. Dallas is currently playing well on defense, so it must continue to make plays on defense.
