Kyle Van Noy trash-talks Dak Prescott after interception: 'You're better than that'

Kyle Van Noy trash-talks Dak Prescott after interception: 'You're better than that'

Dak Prescott has been one of the NFL's best quarterbacks this season, but the suffocating Patriots defense got the best of him on Sunday.

Prescott completed 19 of 33 passes for 212 yards, no touchdowns and an interception in the Cowboys' 13-9 loss. The INT was on an ill-advised throw to Amari Cooper, who was shadowed by shutdown cornerback Stephon Gilmore.

After Gilmore came up with the pick, he was hyped up by teammate Kyle Van Noy who then chirped Prescott for his silly mistake.

"That was a bad throw. You're better than that," Van Noy said.

Watch below:

Hey, Van Noy wasn't wrong.

Prescott shouldn't feel too down on himself for his lackluster performance, though. He isn't the first QB the Patriots D has made look silly this season, and he won't be the last.

Tom E. Curran's Patriots-Cowboys Preview: Can Pats withstand a Dak attack?

The Cowboys have won three of their past four after a three-game losing streak that included a humiliating defeat by the Jets (!!!!!?????). Dak Prescott last week ripped the Lions apart, going 29 of 46 for 444 yards and three touchdowns. It was the third time that Prescott has thrown for at least 400 yards in a game this season and the fifth time that he has thrown at least three touchdowns. They are 6-4. They lead the NFC East. They have gotten fat on bad teams (15 wins among the six teams they’ve beaten). But the 9-1 Patriots have scored just four offensive touchdowns in their past three games and – coming off a 17-10 win over a banged-up Philly team – they face the third consecutive challenging opponent after a relative walk in the park for the first two months of the season.  

 

Tom Brady, Dak Prescott won't worry about cold weather Sunday, here's why

Tom Brady, Dak Prescott won't worry about cold weather Sunday, here's why

Tom Brady and Dak Prescott don't need to worry about the cold temperatures set to roll in Sunday afternoon at Gillette Stadium.

The temperature is supposed to be below 50 degrees, not extremely cold, but still chilly. In his past four starts in temperatures below 50, Prescott is 4-0 with a 111.8 passer rating. 

While that's pretty good, Brady's record is spectacular. The 42-year-old is 50-7 when the temperature is below 40 degrees.

So, while the temperature probably won't play a major factor -- the expected rain, of course, could. The last home game for Brady and the Pats, at 27-13 victory over Cleveland on Oct. 27, was played at times in driving rain with temperatures in the 40s as New England took advantage of Cleveland's inability to hold on to the ball in the slippery conditions. 

The Patriots and Cowboys are set to kick off at 4:25 p.m. ET Sunday.
