Dak Prescott Darren Yamashita-USA TODAY Sports

The Dallas Cowboys find themselves as true contenders in the NFC Conference after an impressive 10-3 start to the season. And the one thing that has separated this Cowboys team from others in recent years has been the elite-level play of star quarterback Dak Prescott.

Prescott has always been a competent quarterback for the Cowboys. But he has taken his play to another level this season. On the season, Prescott has thrown for 3,505 yards with a league-high 28 passing touchdowns and only six interceptions.

This has him as the betting favorite at the moment to win the 2023 MVP award, slightly ahead of San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy and Philadelphia Eagles star Jalen Hurts.

Prescott’s breakout season couldn’t have come at a better time for him individually. This year is the final of Prescott’s current contract with the Cowboys, setting up a massive payday for him in the future wherever he ends up signing.

Fellow Cowboys star Micah Parsons spoke about Prescott’s looming contract situation, stating that his current play is going to make Prescott “one of the richest men in America”.

“He’s a person that makes everyone around him better,” said Parsons of Prescott on his Bleacher Report podcast called The Edge. “I don’t think he’s just an MVP on game day. His whole process leading up to the games is MVP caliber. Always the first one in the building, always the last one leaving the building. And then his energy at practice, making sure people are running the routes. I’ve seen the work. With the year he is putting together, we’re going to be looking at one of the richest men in America.”

As good as Prescott has been on the field, he seems to be even better off of it with his teammates in the locker room. That mixed with his incredible play on the field this year should indeed earn him a whole lot of money this coming offseason.
