It’s difficult to play mistake-free football on Sundays — but that’s what Prescott has given the Cowboys. No interceptions, no fumbles and few sacks. You’d have to go all the way back to 2009 to find a stretch of four consecutive starts by Tony Romo without a turnover.
Prescott has not thrown an interception in his first 131 passes, a record for NFL rookies. That’s as important from a team standpoint as it is an individual standpoint because the Cowboys lack a shutdown defense. Sacks and takeaways are few, so the Dallas offense can’t afford to stick its defense on short fields with turnovers.
And Prescott hasn’t.
