The Cowboys were sitting on a 12 - 2 record when the playoff-hopeful Detroit Lions came to town.
OK, so maybe the Dallas Cowboys didn't exactly ride to the rescue, though Jerry Jones might take credit for it anyway. If the Cowboys take the Super Bowl with Prescott at the helm - turning Tony Romo into Wally Pipp - it would be the longest of long-shot stories. It might not be as surprising as the Cubs breaking a 108-year drought, but the Cubs were the best team in baseball all season.
Prescott tossed three touchdown passes in Sunday's contest, upping his season total to 23.

During the game, he said, the Lions put on a better performance in the first half than the second, something he said the team needs to work on.

You know, the Dallas season that seems like ages ago, but was actually just previous year. Teams can throw against the Cowboys, but the Eagles have to make plays with their receivers, and that has not gone very well this season. They're left with little to prove in their upcoming New Years Day matchup against the (6-9) Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field. The 2016 Cowboys can have the record on their own with a road win against the Eagles on Sunday. Whatever can be gained from that game is insignificant compared to what could be lost if any key players-yes, Prescott is one-suffer a serious injury.
"Look at what Dak Prescott learned tonight and what's now in his computer that wasn't there before tonight in terms of working with Dez [Bryant] in terms of executing the offense", Jones said.
While riding a rookie quarterback into the playoffs, the desire to continue to get him more experience has to be on the mind of Jason Garrett.
The Cowboys don't want to play Romo, have him light it up, and stir up another mini-QB controversy heading into the playoffs. "You focus on going out there and winning ballgames and good things happen". Romo, of course, was injured in the preseason, which opened the door for Prescott to play and excel this season. It has been widely reported that Romo will not want to stay around if he isn't playing. And the connection between Prescott and Bryant has progressed since Prescott threw the first touchdown pass of his National Football League career to Bryant back on September 25 against Chicago.
