Cowboys QB Dak Prescott is playing best ball despite being sacked 17 times in four games

The Cowboys quarterback isn’t letting the pressure get to him and there is plenty of it.

Remember last season between weeks 9-12? You know, that time where Dak Prescott was sacked 15 times in four games? How about the infamous “Burning of Atlanta”? All-Pro left tackle Tyron Smith was out of the lineup and the Cowboys nightmare was realized. Atlanta is where it all started, a day that Chaz Green was beaten so badly off the edge, you would think he owed Adrian Clayborn money. That eight-sack day was referred to as the day that broke Dak Prescott. In his next 11 games, he was 5-6, and was sub-200 yards passing in nine of those games, and was sacked 33 times. Indeed, weeks 9-12 of 2017 were some of the darkest days for the Dallas Cowboys. That four-week stretch was even darker for the young quarterback:
