Dak Prescott, the Dallas Cowboys’ quarterback, made headlines over the weekend with his comment about Sunday’s officials.
Cowboys fans vented their frustration with the officials after the loss by throwing objects onto the field. Dak replied, “Credit, to them,” after learning that fans had thrown objects at officials.
Dak apologized on Tuesday night for his comments made after Sunday’s game. He said, “I deeply regretted the comments that I made about the officials after Sunday’s game.”
“I was caught up in the emotion of a disappointing loss and my words were uncalled for and unfair,” he continued. “[Prescott holds] the NFL Officials in the highest regard and have always respected their professionalism and the difficulty of their jobs. The safety of everyone who attends a game or participates on the field of a sporting event is a very serious matter. That was a mistake on my behalf, and I am sorry.”

Prescott will likely be subject to a heavy fine by the NFL for his comments. He is aware of the mistake in his words and can only apologize and make amends.
The Cowboys and he will be facing a long offseason, with more questions about their lack of playoff success.
