Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has voiced his full support for Dak Prescott, insisting the Cowboys have a quarterback that can lead them to a Super Bowl win. In Week 5, Prescott had a very disappointing performance in a 42-10 Sunday Night Football loss to the San Francisco 49ers.
Against the 49ers, Prescott completed just 14 of his 24 passes for 153 passing yards. To make it all worse, Prescott had one touchdown and three interceptions. After the game, Prescott received the most blame for the Cowboys' heavy loss, with some arguing that this game showed Prescott just can't lead Dallas to a Super Bowl win. “I completely believe we have the quarterback that can take us where we want to go.
Make no mistake about it, we have a quarterback that can get us there. Dak Prescott is a quarterback that can get us to the Super Bowl. And that’s the way that’s going to be," Jones said on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas, via Clarence E.
Hill, Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
Jones comes to Prescott's defense
Before the game, Prescott sounded confident and he wasn't hiding that he really wanted to lead the Cowboys to a win after their back-to-back playoff losses to the 49ers in 2021 and 2022.
But instead of putting up a major performance, Prescott experienced "the most humbling loss of his career." "Didn't see it coming. Put everything into it and got punched in the mouth. Called it a couple weeks ago humbling against Arizona, but this may be the most humbling I've ever been a part of.
Felt good about the preparation and felt good about everything, honestly, coming into this game, matchups, and they beat us in every aspect," Prescott said after the game. In Week 6, the Cowboys are taking on the Los Angeles Chargers and it will be interesting to see if Prescott can bounce back.
