Cowboys news: Dak Prescott’s game evolving; Patrick Surtain II on joining Trevon Diggs in Dallas
They can’t lose Dak’s ability to run, they just need to get him to slide more.
Prescott acknowledged that the situation dictates what should be asked of him, and that a first down in the third quarter probably isn’t the time to make the extra effort.
“On a play like that — first down, you’re going down. You’re sliding,” he said.
It’s hard not to think about how many times Prescott has kept his offense alive through sheer willpower, though – most notably, his winding, somersaulting, 16-yard run against Seattle on a crucial 3rd-and-14 of a wildcard game. The run set the Cowboys up on the Seahawks’ goal line, where they eventually took a 24-14 lead to put the game away.
And to hear it from Prescott, that’s not the type of play he plans on taking out of his repertoire.
