Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys are heading into their Week 4 matchup with the Detroit Lions knowing that they need to pick up a win. Throughout the first three games of the season, the Cowboys’ offense has struggled mightily and that has resulted in a 1-2 record. Part of the problem has been the slow start that Prescott has had.
According to Prescott in an interview with NFL.com, Prescott was asked if he thinks he is an elite quarterback. He knows that he has been struggling but is confident that he’ll get back to playing like an elite quarterback in the near future.
“Yeah, I do. I’ll always see myself as an elite quarterback and I know I’ll get back to playing that way very soon. It’s just three games. We’ll put in all the work that we need to do. We’ll get to where exactly we want to be and need to be. The sun will rise again.”
All that Dallas fans can hope for right now is that Prescott is right and that he will get back on track this week.
Throughout the first three weeks of the season, Dallas is ranked as the No. 31 passing offense in the entire league, according to ESPN. Prescott and the Cowboys know that they will not be able to contend in the NFC with the kind of production that they have been getting through the air.
Prescott has completed 61.4 percent of his pass attempts for 498 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions. Those numbers may not look awful, but they certainly aren’t what the Cowboys need from him.
Expect to see Dallas do everything they can to get their passing game going. Prescott may not be playing well yet, but no one can say that he is lacking confidence.
