If you’re a Dallas Cowboys fan, right about now, you’re licking your chops. Why? Here’s why.
Former Mississippi State quarterback Dak Prescott has played just six NFL games, but his jersey already is in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. And so has his rookie roommate and running mate, Ezekiel Elliott.
The Canton, Ohio-based Hall of Fame has acquired the jerseys of Prescott and Elliott, as announced in a Twitter post.
Prescott and Elliott have become the first quarterback/running back rookie duo ever to pass for 1,000 yards and rush for 500 in their first five (now six) games. They have helped Dallas lead the NFC East with a record of 5-1. The Cowboys’ fourth-round draft pick, Prescott, emerged as the starter in the preseason after Tony Romo sustained a fracture in his back.
Prescott is 125-of-182 for 1,486 yards and seven touchdowns. He is closing in on the all-time NFL record for most passes to start a career without an interception, a mark currently held by Tom Brady of the New England Patriots. Elliott has rushed for 703 yards in SIX Games, and averages 5.1 yards a carry. He has five touchdowns. Goodness gracious.
Yes, they’re in the Hall of Fame — ALREADY!
