Through two games this preseason, there looks to be a budding star in Big D.
The Dallas Cowboys dominated the Miami Dolphins Friday night in each team’s second preseason game, 41-14. Cowboys’ backup quarterback Dak Prescott once again stole the show as he finished with a perfect passer rating of 158.3 accumulating 199 yards on 12/15 attempts, 2 passing touchdowns, and another pair of TD’s on the ground. New Cowboys running back Alfred Morris also impressed Friday, rushing for 85 yards and a 15-yard touchdown.
Cowboys’ starting QB, Tony Romo, played sparingly, coming back from an injury where he missed most of last season, but did lead a drive that resulted in a Morris TD run.
The Miami Dolphins scored two touchdowns on throws from Ryan Tannehill to Kenny Stills. However, aside from these big plays, nothing amounted consistently from the Dolphins’ offense.

Dak Prescott is the Cowboys’ new QB. Romo done for the night after two series. Cowboys 7, Dolphins 0

Nice touch pass by Dak Prescott for touchdown to Dez Bryant. 7-play, 95-yard drive that Prescott seemingly yawned as he lit up Dolphins’ D.

Prediction: Dak Prescott won’t play in a regular season game this season and the Dolphins will trade a second-rounder for him next spring.

Well if you thought Dak Prescott was done. Think again. 58 yard pass to Brice Butler. 1 yard TD to Brice Butler. Yes, the Butler did it
