The proof is in the pudding, and Dak Prescott had a big day because of it.
After months of anticipation, all of the hype around Kellen Moore’s new-look offense for Dallas was fulfilled, even if just for a week. Dak Prescott had one of the best games of his career by throwing for over 400 yards, tying his career high for single-game passing touchdowns, all while posting a perfect passer rating.
So how exactly did that happen? Well, there are a lot of components that went into it. A big part was new quarterbacks coach Jon Kitna refining Prescott’s footwork, which was evident enough in the preseason. Another big part was the way in which Moore changed up the offense’s rhythm and style of attacking. A higher frequency of shots all over the field, more play-action and RPO plays, and pre-snap motion helped make things easier on Prescott.
