Prescott added a few more milestones:
▪ He became the first Cowboys rookie quarterback to start the first 11 games of the season, and second rookie quarterback in the NFL drafted in the fourth round-or-later to start the team’s first 11 games of the season, joining Kyle Orton (Chicago, 2005).
▪ With his 11th start and 11th game played, he tied Troy Aikman (1989) for the most starts and most games played by a Cowboys rookie quarterback in team history.
▪ With the win, Prescott improved to 10-1 to boast the second-most wins (10) by a rookie quarterback through his first 11 starts behind Ben Roethlisberger’s 11 consecutive game in 2004.
