Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott has passed New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady in the record books.
With his 8-yard pass to Jason Witten in the first quarter on Sunday, Prescott tied Brady with 162 pass attempts to open a career without an interception. Prescott then set the record on the next series when he connected with Terrance Williams for a first down.
Earlier this week Prescott said he wasn’t worried about the record. Winning games was more important for the rookie, but sharing a bit of history with a Super Bowl winning quarterback has to feel pretty good.
“It’s a record,” Prescott said last week. “It is meant to be broken. If I don’t break it, I’m sure someone else will. It’s not anything I think about going into the game. I’ll allow y’all [reporters] to have fun with those things.”
Prescott did commit his first turnover of the season last week when he lost a fumble late in the third quarter.
