The Cowboys first and second teams took care of business but the reserves failed them late in 24-21 preseason loss.
Cowboys QB Dak Prescott quickly answers doubters in the preseason opener - Clarence Hill, Fort Worth Star-TelegramPrescott calmly delivered a quick scoring drive in preseason debut.
Prescott promptly drove the Cowboys 75 yards on 10 plays, completing 3 of 3 passes, including a 30-yard touchdown strike to rookie third-round pick Michael Gallup.
“That first drive was good for us,” coach Jason Garrett said. “Dak did a great job on the run to keep the drive alive, and we got the one-on-one on the outside and made a good throw and catch.”
After struggling throughout training camp with the deep ball, Prescott again proved to be his best when the lights are on during games.
Gallup ran a good route, freezing cornerback Jimmy Ward, Prescott hit him with a perfect throw down the right sideline, allowing him to walk into the end zone.
