Cowboys beat Dolphins
Tony Romo started this game.
But everyone is still talking about Dak Prescott, after the Dallas Cowboys beat the Miami Dolphins, 41 14.
The Cowboys likely don have any issues at backup quarterback anymore. If there was still some reticence about starting the regular season with a rookie one snap away from playing important football for this franchise, that has dissipated even further with another dazzling performance by Prescott. The Mississippi State product threw 15 passes, and completed 12 of them. He threw for 199 yards, and two touchdowns, and ran for two other scores. He was practically flawless. Again.
Sure, it preseason. The Cowboys shouldn be crowning Prescott as anything other than a serviceable backup right now maybe with a door creaking open toward "quarterback of the future," but even that label not quite ready for Prescott. Let wait until a regular season completion has come and gone, before we get into that.
But man, what an encore.
The precocious Prescott passing prowess followed a solid preseason debut by Tony Romo. The Cowboys starter and stop it, no that isn changing threw five passes, completed four for 49 yards, and led a solidly effective offense to a touchdown on one of his two drives.
Alfred Morris accounted for

After Romo had exited, Prescott quickly showed that his brilliance in Los Angeles was no fleeting moment in the sun. He lofted a gorgeous ball down the left sideline to Dez Bryant, who leapt, corraled the ball, contorted in mid air, and tapped

Prescott continued the show, running for a 20 yard touchdown on a 3rd and 10, as he rolled to the right, pump faked to get Dolphins safety Michael Thomas to turn his hips just enough, and then took up up the alley created by that patience, to score the Cowboys third touchdown of the day. Dallas led, 21 7.
The Cowboys kicked a pair of field goals to lead 27 14 at the half.
Prescott then threw two passes on his final drive. The

As if that weren enough, Prescott tacked on another touchdown on a QB sneak later in the 3rd, to balloon the lead to 41 14. Prescott finished with 28 yards on the ground on three carries, and his two scores.
Dallas plays their third preseason game of the year the dress rehearsal game, in which starters are expected to play at least a half, if not three quarters is Thursday night in Seattle. CT.
