Dak Prescott, Cowboys quarterback, is happy he set the touchdown record. But he seems to be well past it now that the playoffs begin.
Prescott threw five touchdowns against Eagles on Saturday night. The fifth was the one that set him up for the record for most touchdown passes in one season (37).
Tony Romo, who had originally held the record at 36 in 2007, was passed by him.
Prescott addressed the media after the game and said that he is now focusing his attention on the playoffs.
“The stats and all that, the way we finished was great,” Prescott said, via the team’s website. “It’s what we wanted to do, build momentum, get in a rhythm but none of that matters anymore. You get into this tournament, and it’s one game at a time. It’s a must-win. So that’s the focus. You’ve got to turn the page. You can’t hang your hat on the regular season or 12 wins or winning the division, because none of it matters.”
After Saturday’s 51-26 defeat of Philadelphia, Dallas is now waiting to see its playoff opponent.
Prescott ended the regular season with 4,449 yards of air, 37 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions.
