FRISCO, Texas — The hottest, most in-the-zone, locked-in quarterback and offense the last five weeks of the 2023 NFL season are Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys. Prescott rewrote some records in a 49-17 Week 10 win against the New York Giants in just three quarters of work, becoming the first Cowboy with 300 or more passing yards (404) and three touchdowns (four) in three consecutive games.

These guys have worked hard to do the things that they’ve been asked to do, and it’s nice to see it come together. Nice to see the success they’re having because they definitely put the work in.
