Cowboys Twitter reacts to NFL removing Dak Prescott from FedEx Air ballot

If Dak Prescott gets inspired by slights, real or perceived, the world certainly keeps providing him ammunition. After a season where risky passes, wideout mistakes and tip drills led to an uncharacteristic 15 interceptions in just 12 games, Prescott vowed to stay aggressive but limit the turnovers.

He did that and more, turning in a campaign that is worthy of MVP accolades. That was cemented by his Week 18 performance. Prescott shook off his ninth interception of the season and proceeded to finish with 279 passing yards and four touchdown passes before being lifted midway through the fourth quarter.

It was certainly one of the best performances of the weekend and the NFL knew this, putting him up for FedEx Air player of the week. For a stretch. Inexplicably, the NFL took Prescott off the ballot after fans had begun voting, and replaced him with Josh Allen.

Allen, whose Buffalo Bills scored 14 points in the fourth quarter to defeat Miami and take the AFC East title, had 359 passing yards. He also only had two touchdown passes which were matched by two interceptions. Allen also lost a fumble on a strip sack in Miami territory.

What reason did whatever NFL division responsible for the weekly award have for changing the roster? Cowboys Nation certainly had their own takes, and responded on Twitter accordingly.
