Dallas Cowboys rookie Dak Prescott has been nothing short of incredible this season.

Prior to his most recent game, he led the Cowboys to a league-leading 11-2 record.

But on Sunday, Prescott struggled mightily, and the Cowboys lost to the New York Giants, 10-7.

Prescott completed just 17 passes on 37 attempts for 165 yards, his lowest completion percentage in a game this season. He did add a passing touchdown, but he also threw two interceptions.

Despite the sub-par effort, the Cowboys have made it clear that Prescott is still the top choice at the quarterback position for Dallas, not Tony Romo.

According to Jarrett Bell of USA Today Sports, owner Jerry Jones made the decision very clear.

“No, no, no, no,” Jones said of the possibility of the switch. “Not at all.”

Coach Jason Garrett just said “no” when asked about a switch.

But Sunday’s game is part of a troubling trend for Dallas.

This is the third-straight week Prescott has thrown for under 200 yards. Despite having one of the best offensive lines in the NFL, he’s been sacked six times over the last two games.

Dallas has a bit of wiggle room in the NFC East. The Giants can technically take over the top spot in the division, but the Cowboys have already clinched a playoff spot.

If Prescott continues to struggle, it will be interesting to see how it all plays out for the Cowboys.
