Who knew?

Dak Prescott was named the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year Saturday, and that’s one of the least surprising developments of the NFL season. The rookie blew away the league, leading the Dallas Cowboys to the NFC East Championship before losing a thrilling game in the playoffs to the Green Bay Packers.

Along the way, he passed for 3,667 yards, 23 TD against just four INT, and he finished third(!) in the league in total QBR, behind Matt Ryan and Tom Brady (the two QBS in the Superr Bowl) and ahead of the great Aaron Rodgers.

So, when he picked up his award, he couldn’t help but get in a little dig to the NFL teams who passed him by:

“And thank the other 31 teams for passing up on me as much as they did. Thank you.”

Well, that’s a little misleading because he was drafted in the fourth round, which means teams passed on him multiple times.
