Dak Prescott is glad to shake off his injury woes

Dak Prescott led the Dallas Cowboys in a huge 44-20 win against the New York Giants. This comes after a full year when he got injured against the same team. The star is pleased to have a better game and he wants to move on and get a playoff push.

While the star QB just shrugged it off over the past few weeks prior to the game, Dak finally said that this game against the Giants was more than just his regular run in the 2021-22 season. This meant a lot for the star and he said he is glad to get over it.

Dak said he found it hard not to think about his injury back then, so he tried his best to shake it off. He found his groove late in the game and finished with that strong stat line.

‘As much as I've tried to put it off, as much as I've tried not to think about it, I think it just naturally does, right?’, the Dallas star QB said. ‘And it's in the back of your head, unconsciously or not. I would say I didn't quite feel as energetic or as myself early in the game’.

Dak buried the bad memories he had and sealed the win as well. He tossed for 302 yards on 22/32 passing and scored at least 9.4 yards per throw. He also made three passing TDs and had a 116.9 passing rate.

The star went for a slow start, but at the end of the game, it was all Dallas as Dak led the way for the team and had no hiccups. The star was in a mental fog early in the game before he lifted the haze with a 49-yard bomb TD in the second quarter.

This year, the Cowboys did not have to worry about injury woes and they are on the high side this time. Dak was able to give his best game for Dallas, and they are rolling in the season right now. This means a lot for their chances of earning a playoff spot in the 2021-22 season, and Dallas wants to dream big with Dak at the helm.
