Jerry Jones continues to stand by his man. The Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager says quarterback Dak Prescott has a chance to be the MVP this season.
“I certainly do [think he belongs in the conversation],” Jones said Tuesday on 105.3 The Fan with “Shan & RJ.” “He’s put games together that are the best of his career, in my view. And the best right at the top of many that I’ve seen. It’s the fact he’s doing them back-to-back and of course, his play, and how he’s impacting those games.”
Prescott’s odds stand at +3000 according to FanDuel with Kansas City Chiefs’ Patrick Mahomes, of course, leading the race.
Jones says Prescott’s well-roundedness makes him a strong possibility.
The Cowboys are currently 6-3 with Prescott tallying 2,415 passing yards with 17 touchdowns.
“[I] don’t want to say he’s making it look easy … But, boy is he really in a position not only physical, but it’s mental,” Jones said. “He’s really showed us all hard work, all the time he’s put in and, frankly, the adjustments that have been made the past year. We’re really seeing the fruits of that. If you put the work in and you take it to the practice field and you take it to the game, then it pays off.
“He is the best I’ve ever seen from taking it in the classroom to the field and we’re seeing the fruits of that,” Jones said.
Prescott has some tough competition outside of Mahomes, too.
Houston Texans quarterback C.J. Stroud also entered the MVP conversation after he threw for 356 yards and led a drive to the end of the game to put the team within field goal range. The Texans won 30-27 over the Cincinnati Bengals.
