By John McClainStaff WriterDallas Cowboys rookie WR Dez Bryant is the NFL’s most electrifying weapon on offense, but the rookie quarterback who will be leading his team to a championship game is getting the best from him.
Dallas’ rookie QB Dak Prescott will be the Cowboys’ No. 1 target against the Denver Broncos on Sunday.
Prescott has been one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL all season, but it has been the rookie who has been putting up big numbers for the Cowboys this year.
Prescott has rushed for 1,079 yards, 16 touchdowns and three interceptions, while adding 678 yards on the ground.
He is the best rookie quarterback in the league this year and could be a star of the future for the Dallas Cowboys if he can stay healthy.
Here are some other things to watch for when Cowboys rookie QB Dez Prescott steps in the lineup:The Cowboys are hoping Prescott will play a big role in their comeback game against the Broncos.
They are currently 5-3 against the AFC South and 3-1 against the NFC East.
The Cowboys will need Prescott to deliver in this game to help them climb out of their hole.
The Broncos are a top-five team in the AFC.
They beat the Giants in Week 1 to clinch a playoff spot, but they were beaten by the Patriots in Week 5.
Denver will need the offense to pick up where they left off in their season opener against the San Francisco 49ers.
The 49ers are ranked No. 2 in the country.
The Broncos are No. 8.
The 49ers have won four of five against the Cowboys, including their win over Denver last year in Denver.
This game is expected to be a great test for the Broncos, as they are coming off a loss to the New England Patriots.
The Niners are coming into this game in the top four in the division.
Denver won in Week 8, and the Broncos are expected to take advantage of this matchup.
The Cowboys have not won a playoff game in Denver since Week 1, in which the Broncos beat the team they were trying to beat in Week 2, the Minnesota Vikings.
This will be an opportunity for the Denver offense to put up big points and help the Cowboys win the game.
