The hot hand of Dak Prescott has carried the Cowboys to a previously unfathomable 7-1 record midway through the season after the injury of Tony Romo.
Though it appears as if Jerry Jones and Jason Garrett have decided to leave Prescott in until necessary, there is so replacement form the experience and football IQ to diagnose defensed at the line that Romo has accumulated over the years under center. If any of that was in question, take this play.
Video shows Romo on the sideline working out some math in his head before the play, saying to himself, “Dammit” prior to the ball even being snapped.
You can see Romo counting and then saying “damn it”, he knows this play was dead before the snap. pic.twitter.com/m8hO8QZxwt
