The Dallas Cowboys put on an offensive show last week against the Detroit Lions, and they needed most of it to get home with the victory. America’s Team now sits at 6-4 with a huge matchup against the New England Patriots ahead of them, but before we completely shift focus we should acknowledge something important that happened.
Dak Prescott was named NFC Offensive Player of the Week for Week 11
Against the Lions, Prescott put together quite the stat line. He finished 29 of 46 for 444 yards passing and threw three touchdowns (two to running backs interestingly). He was in total command of the offense throughout the entire game as he put together his third game this season with over 400 yards passing.
The Cowboys offense is currently ranked number one in terms of Football Outsiders’ DVOA metric, and Dak Prescott is a huge reason why. They’re getting elite play from their quarterback and it’s something that they’re going to need moving forward if they want to continue to pile up wins.
This is Dak’s second Offensive Player of the Week award to his career. He first received it after this season’s Week 1 performance over the New York Giants.
