Dak Prescott’s rookie season with the Dallas Cowboys exceeded all expectations as long-time starter Tony Romo was injured in preseason, and Prescott led the team to a 13-3 record and playoff berth in his absence.

While there’s no debating that Prescott was valuable to the Cowboys, there will be a wide-ranging debate over who was the most valuable player for his team among all 32 teams in the NFL. For NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport, the answer is Prescott as he explained in a video for Monday Morning Quarterback.

For Rapoport, it’s all about the word valuable. He looked back at how Dallas played last year when Romo and WR Dez Bryant hurt, compared to how the team played this season when both were sidelined. In Rapoport’s opinion, the difference between 4-12 and 13-3 is the Mississippi State quarterback Dallas drafted in the fourth round.
