Dak Prescott, Dallas Cowboys star, doesn’t mind not being selected for the 2022 Pro Bowl. He has bigger goals.
The NFL has released the final roster for the Pro Bowl this season earlier this week. The NFC side saw quarterbacks Kyler Murray and Tom Brady selected to represent the league. There was a lot of criticism from outsiders about these three NFC passers being elected to the Pro Bowl. This is especially true considering that Matthew Stafford and Prescott have also had promising campaigns.
Prescott didn’t mind that he wasn’t selected to be one of the three NFC quarterbacks in the Pro Bowl. He hopes will play in a more important game the week after.
“I’m win first with the team and all that stuff comes, so not necessarily,” Prescott said during a press conference on Thursday. “Yeah, sure it’d be great obviously but in the same sense I want to play in the Super Bowl and not that game, so just look at the bigger goal.”
After their Tennessee Titans home win over San Francisco 49ers, the Cowboys have already achieved one noteworthy feat. Prescott and his team could secure the NFC East by beating the Washington Football Team on Thursday.
Prescott enters Week 16 with 3,598 yards passing and 25 touchdown passes on year. Prescott, a sixth-year quarterback, needs just one victory to win the third consecutive double-digit wins season with the Cowboys.
