Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott made it very clear that he is no longer worrying about his career-high 15 interceptions from the 2022 season after the team’s 30-10 victory on Sunday against the Jets.
In Dallas’ commanding win at home, Prescott registered back-to-back games with zero turnovers, something he failed to do last season. With his success in the last two weeks, the two-time Pro Bowler told reporters that it is time to leave “last year” in the past for good.
“…It’s something that I’ve left,” Prescott said, per Jon Machota of The Athletic. The interceptions and all that, I guess when you lead the league it’ll never go away. As I stated last year, every one of them has their story. But that’s not where my mind is. … Just being candid, I really don’t care … about it at this point. … I know how efficient this offense is. I know the work that I put into this game, the work that we put in as a unit. ...I’m going out there, just trying to complete the ball, get the ball to these playmakers that we have, get it to them in space and let them do their thing.”
Prescott threw for 255 yards on 31-for-38 passing with two touchdowns in Sunday’s victory. The Cowboys (2-0) enter a bye week before returning to action on Sept. 24 for a road matchup against the Cardinals.
