Spinning forward, the quarterback had a prediction when asked about the upcoming year on the red carpet before Wednesday’s ESPY Awards:
After a fantastic, out-of-nowhere rookie season, Prescott is the main reason for optimism swelling in Dallas. The tandem of Prescott and Ezekiel Elliottbehind the best offensive line in football can push the Cowboys to a repeat division title.
While Dallas might enter the season as the favorites, it’s not a given the Cowboys will steamroll their rivals. The NFC East has improved from top to bottom. The Eagles have given Carson Wentz new weapons. The Redskins have upgraded their defense. And the Giants have surrounded Eli Manning with even more playmakers to complement a stout D.
The Cowboys have questions of their own, including on the defensive side of the ball entering training camp. Another concern could be some regression to the mean for Prescott in Year Two.
