Jerry Jones still has ‘tremendous confidence’ in Dak Prescott
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones’s confidence in quarterback Dak Prescott is unwavering despite an inauspicious start to the season.
Prescott struggled mightily as the Cowboys lost to the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, but Jones, who has put the franchise in Prescott’s hands, isn’t sweating it.
Jerry Jones: "I have tremendous confidence in Dak. I feel good about Sunday. I feel good about our future. One of the strengths of our team as far as I can see into the future is Dak Prescott."

Jones is right, for better or worse. The Cowboys have made quite clear that this is Prescott’s team, and they’ll go as far as he can take them. On Sunday, that wasn’t very far, as he threw for only 170 yards and failed to find the end zone. The New York Giants have already made clear that they’ll be targeting him on Sunday, so we’ll see if he can come up with a statement game.
