Dak Prescott may be a rookie, but he is certainly playing like a veteran. While the debate continues on who deserves to be the starting quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys, he may have just gotten one over veteran Tony Romo.

One person who will be pressed even more is team owner Jerry Jones. Despite constant queries on who deserves to be starting, it will be interesting if the recent performance of Prescott against the Green Bay Packers will finally change his mind.

Prescott into the record books

The Cowboys did win (30-16) with Prescott starting, but there was more to the win that made Prescott stand out. The 23-year-old carved his name into the NFL record books when he set a new record for pass attempts (176) without an interception, SB Nation reported. His first interception occurred on his 177th attempt courtesy of Morgan Burnett.

Either way, this also means that Prescott has broken the previous record held by Tom Brady of the New England Patriots. With that achievement, the attention shifts once again to Jones and Jason Garrett on how the Cowboys will manage their future.

Despite the run aided by Prescott for the Cowboys, the only logical explanation for Jones sticking with Romo is the experience he carries. It will be a sensitive move that may or may not work for Dallas though the word out is that Prescott has gotten the support of the locker room, Bleacher Report reported.

Tony Romo return to be delayed?

Tony Romo will reportedly return either in week eight or nine though the breakthrough with Prescott could push his return back. With the rookie holding up well, the best thing to handle the quarterback debate is to make sure that Romo is primed and ready to return, Yahoo UK reported.

That means that Prescott is expected to start at least for the next couple of games, probably longer if he continues his quarterbacking brilliance.
