Part of the big story coming out of the Cowboys loss to the Green Bay Packers is the loss itself coupled with the fact that Dallas is now 2-3 with a lot of questions surrounding their team.
One important question has an unequivocal answer, though. Is Dak Prescott more than a one-year wonder? Absolutely.
Prescott finished the day 25 of 36 for 251 yards, three touchdowns, and an interception that wasn’t his fault. He also added 37 yards and six points on the ground.
Jerry Jones said, emphatically, that he thought Dak Prescott was outstanding. Said it was maybe best game he's seen Dak play as a Cowboy.

Dak Prescott is the unquestioned leader, present, and future of the Dallas Cowboys. It was silly, but fair to wonder whether or not he would have a sophomore slump of sorts. Those days are dead and gone.
The unfortunate thing in the grand scheme of things is that Dak Prescott’s heroic performance was in vain as the Cowboys ultimately lost. Doesn’t that sound familiar, though?
Perhaps this is cosmic nature re-aligning itself. Perhaps the Cowboys are destined to have supremely talented quarterbacks carry their teams only for the things around them that they can’t control let the team down in losing fashion.
Dak Prescott is finally learning what it’s like to be Tony Romo.
