Dak Prescott is very pleased with the Dallas Cowboys’ blowout win vs. the Minnesota Vikings especially because of how the team lost the previous week.

During his postgame interview after the 40-3 rout, the Mississippi State product cited the overtime loss at the Green Bay Packers as a bad taste the Cowboys wanted to wash away.

“We just played a complete game, offense, defense. We knew we needed to respond after last week. This was big for us,” Prescott said. “Now it’s just taking it one week at a time, one game at a time. If we continue to do this, this team can be special.”

The Cowboys have a 7-3 record and are tied with the New York Giants for second place in the NFC East. Prescott has passed for 856 yards, 6 touchdowns, and 4 interceptions with a 60.5 QBR this season. Prescott missed 5 weeks this season due to a thumb injury.

The 29-year-old Prescott is a 2-time Pro Bowler and was the NFL’s Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2016. While at Mississippi State, Prescott was a back-to-back First-team All-SEC selection.
