Dallas Cowboys fourth-round pick Dak Prescott made his ninth start on Sunday, tying him with Chad Hutchinson (2002) for the second-most rookie quarterback starts in team history.

Troy Aikman (1989) holds the record at 11.

Prescott and Hutchinson are also tied for total games played by a rookie quarterback at nine.

Veteran Tony Romo, who has been cleared to return to action, was inactive for Sunday’s game.

Entering Sunday’s game, Prescott already held club rookie records for passing yards (2,020), passing touchdowns (12), wins as a starter (seven) and quarterback rating as a starter (104.2).

He set an NFL record for most passes without an interception to start a career with 176.
