News: 4 days agoPrescott completed 29 of 41 passes for 299 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions in the Cowboys' 41-35 win over the Seahawks on Thursday night. He also rushed seven times for 23 yards and threw for a two-point conversion.
Spin: Prescott and the Cowboys as a whole likely got a lot more than they bargained for from the opposing offense, which helped lead to a busy night for Dallas' star quarterback. He proved he was up to the task of pulling out a rare close game at home, connecting with CeeDee Lamb (15 yards), Brandin Cooks (seven yards) and Jake Ferguson (12 yards) for his trio of scores. The latter touchdown pass came with 4:37 remaining and was followed by a two-point conversion toss to Cooks, taking the Cowboys from a five-point deficit to three-point advantage. Prescott now has at least three touchdown passes in five of the last six contests, and he fell just short of a fifth 300-yard game in that span as well. With the hard-fought win in hand, Prescott and teammates now have extra time to prepare for a Week 14 home showdown against the Eagles on Sunday, Dec. 10 that could ultimately help decide the NFC East.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Prescott is looking to bounce back after a rough 2022 campaign in which he missed five games due to injury, paced the NFL with 15 INTs and struggled to generate fantasy points. Prescott managed only two weekly finishes better than eighth and finished 15th or worse in six of his 12 outings. The Dallas offense will have a new playcaller in Mike McCarthy, but the head coach has expressed a desire to slow down the offense and run more. That doesn't bode well for Prescott's upside, especially since the 30-year-old no longer offers much with his legs (48-146-1 and 45-182-1 rushing lines the last two seasons). Prescott does, however, have an excellent supporting cast (led by CeeDee Lamb, Brandin Cooks, Tony Pollard and an elite line), so he still has the look of a fringe QB1.
