Dak Prescott has the Dallas Cowboys at 7-1 entering Sunday’s showdown at the Pittsburgh Steelers, and USA Today columnist Jarrett Bell thinks the quarterback is the league’s MVP halfway through the season.
Prescott has been efficient all season and he has rarely turned the ball over. He has thrown for 12 touchdowns and only two interceptions while throwing for 2,020 yards. Bell pointed out Prescott is fourth in the NFL in passer rating with 104.2 rating, and his ability to protect the football has Dallas in the position they are in now.
Many are wondering whether Prescott should keep his job once Tony Romo is ready to play again. Romo is almost ready to return to the field, but Bell said the Cowboys should continue to play Prescott and there’s no reason to rush Romo.
Jerry Jones was once adamant Romo would be the starter when he returned, but he has seemingly wavered over the last couple weeks.
