The Dallas Cowboys rookie quarterback continues to make decisions that bring great applause.
Dak Prescott is turning down some lucrative endorsement opportunities to spend time with his grandmother in Louisiana according to NFL.com’s Gil Brandt.

Prescott threw his first regular-season interception this past weekend in a victory against the Green Bay Packers. The Cincinnati Bengals said last week that they hadn’t seen him throw a bad pass while watching him on film.
The Cowboys are on a five-game winning streak, and talks have been getting louder about whether they should continue with Prescott as their starting quarterback when Tony Romo returns.
Again, Prescott has appeared to handle those questions flawlessly. “Everybody wants to play. Everybody wants to get out there, get out there on the field. I have that in me it’s itching to play,” Prescott said to Fox Sports’ Colin Cowherd. “But as long as we’re winning, as long as he’s doing well with this team and he’s feeling good, I’m happy.”
The Cowboys could not be in a better position going into their bye week. There were nothing but question marks with Romo’s injury and suspensions on defense. Wide Receiver Dez Bryant hasn’t even suited up since the game against the Chicago Bears.
They are still 5-1, six games into the season.
