Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott earns another NFL honor!

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is enjoying a bounce-back season after last year's campaign was ended prematurely thanks to that terrible ankle injury he suffered against the New York Giants. 

Thanks to his performance on Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons that saw the host Cowboys dominate their guests, Prescott has been named the FedEx Air Player of the Week for Week 10, the second time this season that he's earned the honor: 

So far this season, the  $160 million franchise quarterback has thrown for 2,341 passing yards with 20 touchdowns. This past Sunday, he also earned himself a rushing touchdown, powering his way through several Falcons defenders into the end zone on a play that admittedly had team owner and general manager Jerry Jones worried. 

“I had to re-establish some toughness,” Prescott said after the game. “At that point, I was actually getting ready to dive and just didn’t want the ball to go off a guy’s leg or something like that and realized I had the defender squared up. And at that point, yeah, it’s goal-line. I told you guys earlier in the year: certain plays, certain positions on the field, I’m going to go back to my instincts and [I’m] going to get the touchdown or the first down. But being smart about it.”

Take a look at what Jones had to say: 

“I worry about it,” Jerry Jones said Tuesday, November 16 on 105.3 The Fan. “We got to realize that at the end of the year what this is about is being standing. Warren Buffett one time said the hardest thing about accumulating wealth is to be there to spend it.”
