Dak Prescott was on the money in the Dallas Cowboys‘ win over the Minnesota Vikings in week 11. Dallas rolled to a dominant 40-3 victory, and Prescott played a big role in the statement win on the road.

Prescott has now played in four games since returning from injury. Dallas is 3-1 in those games. In the one that they lost, the Cowboys scored 28 points. Needless to say, the offense is getting into a groove with No. 4 behind center.

On Sunday, Prescott put his skills on display in a potential playoff preview. He was seeing the field very well, making outstanding throws, and consistently putting the Cowboys in position to light up the scoreboard.

Prescott’s 68-yard touchdown toss to Tony Pollard was a thing of beauty. In the tweet above, NFL writer Ted Nguyen broke down what Prescott saw presnap, how the Cowboys beat the coverage, and the throw that put Dallas up by four scores.

Dak Prescott has proven to be among the best in the entire league at the line of scrimmage. His performance against the Vikings showcased that to the highest degree, which is a great sign for the Cowboys moving forward.

In the four games since Prescott returned to the field, the Dallas Cowboys are the NFL’s top scoring offense. Dallas is moving the football with a great blend of using Prescott’s arm and running the football with Tony Pollard and Ezekiel Elliott.

Kellen Moore has developed effective game plans, and Prescott is executing them. As a result, the Cowboys are averaging 35 points per game in this stretch. That has become a theme with Prescott running the show. Dallas has averaged the most points per game with Prescott starting since 2020.

Additionally, Dallas is among the league’s best across the board in offensive statistics with No. 4 at quarterback. The Cowboys improved from being among the worst in the NFL in scoring, total offense, and red zone offense to being top-3 in those categories.

Prescott is completing over 67% of his passes and is top-10 in the NFL in quarterback rating. He is running the offense at a high level, and the Cowboys are extremely dangerous because of it.

To put it simply, the Dallas Cowboys are proving to be legitimate Super Bowl contenders. Dak Prescott returning to action and playing effectively is a major reason why Dallas has a chance to make a ton of noise in the postseason.
