Micah Parsons says 1 move from Dak Prescott ‘made me blush’
Dak Prescott solidified himself as an MVP candidate with his performance in the Dallas Cowboys’ win over the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday night, but there was also a moment on the sidelines that stuck out to Micah Parsons.
Prescott went 29/41 for 299 yards, 3 touchdowns and no turnovers in the Cowboys’ thrilling 41-35 victory. Dallas trailed by 8 in the fourth quarter, but Prescott kept punching back and threw a go-ahead touchdown pass to tight end Jake Ferguson with 4:37 remaining in the game.

Many are skeptical that Prescott can put together a performance like the one he had on Thursday night when the stage is even bigger, but the quarterback had a great message for those naysayers.
