Many recognize Dak Prescott as a player that fails to show up in clutch moments. However, his impressive stats in overtime games would argue to the contrary. The Dallas Cowboys quarterback has never thrown an incomplete pass in four career O/T games, the only player to achieve this feat in the NFL since at least 1994. Last night, the 28-year-old continued the impressive trend in the Cowboy’s road win against the New England Patriots.

The Cowboys completed the comeback win in overtime last night to claim their first victory over Bill Belichick’s New England Patriots. The success was also the first for Dallas in Foxborough since 1987.

On the way to victory, Dak Prescott threw for an impressive 445 yards and three touchdowns, but it was in the overtime period that he showed his class. During the O/T period, Prescott led Dallas 80 yards in seven plays, eventually finding Ceedee Lamb for the 35-yard game-winning touchdown. After faking a handoff and rolling right impressively.

The pass to Ceedee Lamb making it three game-winning touchdowns in four career overtime games; however, this is just the beginning of his overtime dominance. During overtime periods, Dak Prescott is 18 for 18 on pass completions for a total of 214 yards with zero sacks and a passer rating of 155.79. Prescott’s only career overtime loss came against the Houston Texans.

With last night’s win, the Dallas Cowboys moved to 5-1 for the season. Prescott was quick to praise the team after the game.

“Just to be able to show the resiliency all night long. In all those different moments. And be able to have a chance at the end to win it and us to do it speaks volumes.”
