The Cowboys quarterback recognizes that being able to study from afar when he was sidelined by injuries has helped him in his development as a passer
ARLINGTON – Dak prescott he was confident he would improve, even without playing, after he suffered an ankle injury that left him out for most of last season. Your secret would be take the opportunity to observe from another perspective.
The stellar quarterback of the Dallas cowboys, who later missed most of training camp with a shoulder injury, thinks he was correct.
“In hindsight, the experience obviously helped, just to study and prepare, and then with all the work I put in to recover, not just from the leg but from the shoulder and to get to know the playbook better,” he said. Prescott. “I feel like I’m playing better than ever.”
Prescott had the best passing percentage in his six-year career on Monday, in his first home game since he fractured and dislocated his right ankle last October in the AT&T Stadium.
The Cowboys (2-1) lead the division and prepare to play the second of three matches at home, next Sunday against the Carolina panthers (3-0). They have tested the theory of Prescott, about the team being better when its quarterback doesn’t have to throw more than 50 times to get over 400 yards.
Prescott had those numbers in the opening match of the campaign, a 31-29 loss to Tampa bay, defending champion of Super bowl. He also achieved them in the three games prior to the injury.
The Cowboys they were 1-3 in those matches.
In the wins before Los Angeles Chargers and the Philadelphia Eagles, Prescott has thrown a total of 475 yards, while the Cowboys average 179 yards rushing after having just 60 against the Buccaneers.
After spending most of last season as the worst team on the loose ball margin, the Cowboys are now tied with the New Orleans Saints at the top with +5.
Managing the game at the end of the first half has been a problem for the coach Mike mccarthy twice. The last one was in the final two minutes without using one or both of his timeouts.
“The decision was to take the lead before the break,” he acknowledged McCarthy. “I was comfortable with where the ball was.”
