Jerry Jones hints Dak Prescott will remain starter even after Romo returns

Prescott has a 99.6 passer rating and 13 total touchdowns so far this season.

Dak Prescott has had a remarkable rookie season. He entered Sunday's game against the Green Bay Packers with 155 pass attempts without an interception to start his career.

That was an NFL rookie record, but he was eight attempts shy of breaking Tom Brady's league mark for attempts to start a career. Brady had 162 straight pass attempts before his first pick in his second NFL season. Prescott passed Brady in the first quarter of Sunday's game at Lambeau Field with a 15-yard completion to Terrance Williams.


Three plays after Prescott passed Brady Sunday, he appeared to throw his first interception. Prescott, a fourth-round pick from Mississippi State, was hit by Green Bay's Julius Peppers and the ball popped in the air. It was snatched by Packers linebacker Joe Thomas and initially ruled a pick.

Replays showed Peppers had slapped the ball out of Prescott's hand before his arm was in motion and the interception was changed to a fumble, the second lost fumble of Prescott's young career. 

The Packers converted the turnover into a second field goal by Mason Crosby, but trailed 7-6 with 12:11 remaining in the first half. 

He did finally throw a pick when Packers safety Morgan Burnett made a diving interception late in the third quarter to snap Prescott's streak at 176 attempts.
