Dak Prescott had a huge night against the rival Philadelphia Eagles. Prescott recently said his team needed to place more of an emphasis on offense. They did so in spades. The Dallas Cowboys QB threw for five touchdowns on the way to an easy 51-26 victory. Dak set a new Cowboys season record along the way.
Tony Romo previously held the Dallas record for touchdowns in a single season with 36. Prescott’s fourth quarter dime to Corey Clement eclipsed that mark. Dak Prescott is now atop a very elite list.
Other familiar names atop the Cowboys record book include Troy Aikman, Don Meredith, and the legendary Roger Staubach. Prescott is happy to be among them. Dak told ESPN he wasn’t even aware of the honor until someone told him about it.
“I thought they were saying congrats for five touchdowns, to be honest.”
Prescott had seen his career hit a major slump after his phenomenal early success. Dak has been on point after falling off again late this season. Ezekiel Elliott added 87 yards on the ground to surpass 1,000 on the season.
Dallas closes out the regular season with a very strong 12-5 record. They can finish anywhere between the 2nd and 4th seed depending what Tampa Bay, the Rams, and Arizona Cardinals do today. They will host at least one home playoff game regardless. Dak Prescott hopes to continue his record-breaking season all the way to the Super Bowl.
