Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott answered questions about Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes during his Thursday media availability. He gave a glowing evaluation of Mahomes’ talents and expressed confidence in his return.
Prescott said that Mahomes’ greatest quality was “His competiveness”. Source: The Athletic’s Jon Machota. He never thinks he’s out. He believes he can make every throw. That’s a huge advantage in this position.
Reporters asked Dak Prescott to compare Patrick Mahomes players. He gave an interesting answer. He replied, “You tell me.”
After struggling through the first part of the schedule, Mahomes seemed to be able to get his game (and his team) back on track last week against the Las Vegas Raiders. He will be facing Prescott’s Dallas Cowboys in his next test.
Dallas travels to Kansas City at 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff. Despite their poor start to the season, the Chiefs are now -2.5-point favorites.
The Dallas Cowboys are capable of going as far as Dak Prescott will take them. The former Mississippi State star has had to deal with a few injuries in the past two seasons.
Prescott was forced to miss the entire season last year after sustaining a terrible leg injury. Prescott had shoulder problems and was working to get his leg in shape before the season began. Prescott was injured again a few weeks back.
Jerry Jones, Cowboys owner, is worried about Prescott’s injuries. The Cowboys’ quarterback, Smith, has been under severe pressure from a weak offensive line. Although Dallas holds the NFC East lead, things could change if Prescott is hurt more.
Jerry Jones admitted that he worries sometimes about Prescott taking some hits. Jones wants to ensure that Prescott is healthy and well after the unfortunate injuries he sustained.
It worries me. “We realized that the end of the season is all about standing,” Jones stated via Around the NFL’s Chase Goodbread. “Warren Buffett once said that the hardest part of accumulating wealth was to spend it.”
Although Dak Prescott is great under pressure, Tyron’s return should provide better protection and less wear for the quarterback. This is music to Jerry Jones ears.
