Dak Prescott: Record against winning teams

Since 2016, Dak Prescott has been the Dallas Cowboys’ starting quarterback, replacing the injured Tony Romo and earning a long-term contract. Prescott has shown great skills and leadership for the Cowboys, but the team has not lived up to its high expectations.

Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys have a lot of talent, but they struggle to win against quality opponents.

Let’s examine how many times the Cowboys have beaten teams with a winning record under Prescott’s tenure.

The reason for QB wins against winning teams

Before we jump into it, I want it to be clear that winning and losing is a team statistic, not a quarterback statistic. A quarterback cannot control how well his defense, special teams, or coaching staff perform. He can only do his best with the opportunities he gets. Therefore, it is unfair to judge a quarterback solely by his win-loss record.

Secondly, it is very rare for any quarterback to have a winning record against teams who finished the season above .500 in the league. The NFL is a highly competitive and unpredictable league, where any team can beat any other team on any given day. It is unrealistic to expect a quarterback to consistently win against the best teams in the league.

Therefore, when evaluating a quarterback’s performance, it is important to look beyond the win-loss record and consider other factors such as efficiency, consistency, clutchness, and leadership. These are the qualities that truly separate the good quarterbacks from the great ones.
