For a struggling Cowboys team, Prescott’s injury is catastrophic. He was the lone bright spot on a team that has started the season 1-3 despite having high expectations for the season.
However, the biggest takeaway is how tragic is this is for the NFL world. Prescott is one of the game’s brightest players and to see such an injury it truly is heart wrenching. Prescott plays the game with such emotion and you could see how devastated he was after being carted off.
The opposite has been said, but this moment, Dak Prescott, the epitome, and the embodiment of leadership. You don’t cry over things you don’t care about immensely.

Cowboys vs. Giants
The Cowboys are in a tight contest with the New York Giants. This game is critical for Dallas as they hope to avoid a 1-4 start. Prescott threw for 166 yards, going for 14/21 on his passes. He also threw one interception.
He also caught a touchdown pass in the game.

Andy Dalton replaced Prescott, and he appears to have the Cowboys in a position to win the game. The Cowboys are on the Giants 32 yard line with a chance to kick a field goal. He is currently 3/4 for 27 yards.
Dalton last played for the Bengals where a disappointing season led to his exit. The Cowboys are still very much in the game.
Meanwhile for the Giants, this game could mark their first victory. The NFC east is a weak division, but every win is important in a competitive NFC conference.
