During Weeks 1-13, Dallas Cowboys rookie quarterback Dak Prescott posted a Total QBR of 85.0, the best mark in the NFL. But that plummeted to 22.1 against the New York Giants on Sunday night in a Week 14 loss, as he completed only 17 of 35 passes for 167 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions.
Was the rookie quarterback exposed in a way that will continue to be an issue, or can the Cowboys make some corrections and adjust the offensive call sheet to facilitate more production?

“I understand what the GM did and let him go,” Jean Francois said. “Cool, you brought him over to our team. You gave us a great part of your defense, and we’re taking advantage of his skill set. This man can take off one half of the field. Not many corners can do that. Not many corners can get a quarterback to not pay attention to that side of the field. It helped his pocket, and it helped our team.”
