Prescott stated that watching from the sideline was an entirely different experience and was initially disappointed that he didn't play against the Vikings.
"Every chance that you get to get out there, you don’t get many of them. You want to seize it all. Prescott stated that he was able to get over the situation quickly in the same way. "I understood the perspective. "I knew the direction we were going and it was a long road. We are a team that can play for long periods of time. We can play to that last game so that was something I kept in mind when making the decision.

He said that they had their two-week bye, so we will give them that. Prescott has thrown for 1,813 yards, 16 touchdowns, four interceptions and at least three touchdowns in six games. This is a Cowboys record.
What are Prescott's expectations of Sunday, after missing a match?
He said, "Be better." "That was my expectation going into everything. I feel like I've had two great days of practice. I plan to continue getting better, stamp the final touches on the game plan, and go out there and do better than I did a few weeks ago against the Patriots.
