The NFL season is more than half over and week 10 was one of the more exciting weekends of the season. Quarterback play was impressive this week even with Patrick Mahomes, Tua Tagovailoa, and Jalen Hurts on a bye. With these familiar names off this week we have some newcomers to the top 7 list and a couple players who are re-entering the list after struggling in past weeks.
1. Dak Prescott
Dak comes in this week with his highest weekly ranking of the season after a tremendous performance against a struggling New York Giants team. The Cowboys offense was firing on all cylinders with Dak leading the way throwing for 404 yards on 26/35 passing for four touchdowns and one interception. Dak is having one of the best seasons of his career already amassing 2,415 passing yards, 17 touchdowns and 6 interceptions. He also has a QBR of 72..7 this season the third highest in the league.
Dak is unfairly targeted at times when the Cowboys struggle but it’s to be expected for any quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys. Many thought after being blown out by the 49ers in week 5 that Dallas might be a fraudulent Super Bowl contender, but they and more importantly Dak have bounced back. After a tough loss to the Eagles in a game Dak played well in they caught a weak Giants team at the perfect time and exercised some of their demons. With a weak schedule the next few weeks Dak will need to continue to play well to keep the doubters quiet and solidify the Cowboys as legit contenders.
