Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and coach Jason Garrett have continued to laud quarterback Dak Prescott for his leadership and toughness, despite the ongoing struggles of the passing game, which ranks 29th in the league.

Garrett pointed that Prescott played well in the 19-16 overtime loss to the Houston Texans Sunday even though he threw two interceptions and completed only six passes for 80 yards to his wide receivers.

Garrett blamed most of his woes on the teama€™s maligned group of receivers, saying, a€œOh I think Dak is really playing very, very well. I think if you watch the game last night he did so many things to give us opportunities in the game.a€

Jones echoed those sentiments on his radio show Tuesday morning on 105.3 The Fan and doubled down on his belief that Prescott is the franchise quarterback of the future.

a€œHe did some things that kept us in that game the other day,a€ Jones said. a€œIa€™m firmly in the corner that we got a quarterback that we can build with and have for years to come in Dak Prescott. Make no mistake about it. Hea€™s one of the reasons why we have a real chance (to win).a€

Prescott is currently the leaguea€™s 27th ranked passer and is 28th in completion percentage, which are troubling statistics to Hall of Fame quarterback Troy Aikman.

A three-time Super Bowl champion with the Cowboys who is now the lead football analyst for FOX Sports, Aikman has been a fan of Prescotta€™s since he took over for Tony Romo in 2016.

But Aikman says Prescotta€™s accuracy woes and a lack of anticipation are problems going forward.
