Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott’s NFL record for passes without an interception to start a career ended in the third quarter at 176 during Sunday’s game against Green Bay at Lambeau Field.

Prescott set the NFL mark with 163 in the opening quarter, but the record ended when Morgan Burnett made an interception with 32 seconds left in the third quarter.

Prescott threw his 163rd pass without an interception in the opening quarter against Green Bay at Lambeau Field. The pass was a 15-yard completion to wide receiver Terrance Williams.

It’s also the most by a rookie.

The previous NFL record was held by Tom Brady, who had 162 consecutive attempts without an interception (2000-2001) to start his career. Carson Wentz, a rookie in Philadelphia, is third at 134 and Warren Moon (Houston, 1984) is fourth at 131.

Brady also hold the NFL’s all-time record for consecutive pass attempts without an interception at 358 (2010-2011). Alex Smith is second with 312 in 2015. Bernie Kosar is third at 308 (1990-91) and Bart Starr is fourth at 294 (1964-65).
